Titan’s VIP door-to-door travel service collects you from home, for your journey to Liverpool, where our staff will greet you and assist with embarking Black Watch (3T+) in preparation for a late evening sailing.
Day 2 - Cruising Fingal’s Cave
Today we see the extraordinary Fingal’s Cave, an unforgettable sight on the inhabited island of Staffa in Scotland’s beautiful Inner Hebrides. This mystic sea-cave is part of a National Nature Reserve and is magnificently distinctive due to its basalt ‘columns’ that form an incredible symmetry. Fingal’s Cave is also a birdwatchers paradise as the stunning cliffs and grassy slopes often play host to a remarkable array of native seabirds such as puffins, razorbills and guillemots, so be sure to pack your binoculars!
Day 3 - Kirkwall, Orkney Islands
This morning we arrive in the historic capital of the Orkney Islands, Kirkwall, a place bursting with ancient history; visit the town to discover the remarkable St Magnus Cathedral - dedicated to the memory to Saint Magnus Erlendsson - and the spectacular Church of Saint Olaf of Norway, one of the most significant historic sites in Kirkwall having been founded in the 11th century. Other highlights include the 12th century ruins of the former Bishop’s Palace, the beautiful Renaissance building of Earl’s Palace and the town’s two fascinating museums: Tankerness House - an impressively-preserved 16th century townhouse hosting an exhibition on the history of Orkney from the Stone Age right through to today - and the Orkney Wireless Museum which tells the history of radio.
Day 4 - Tobermory, Isle of Mull - Cruising Sound of Mull
Enjoy a day in the Isle of Mull’s main village, Tobermory, built in the 18th century as a main fishing port. Today, Tobermory is a charming village characterised by brightly-coloured houses, a picturesque pier and beautiful fishing boats bobbing up and down in front of the pretty port. Discover the Mull Museum, an exhibition of the Isle of Mull’s history including local craftsmens’ tools and incredible artefacts, or explore the Tobermory Distillery, originally founded in 1798. Late this afternoon we take a scenic cruise along the Sound of Mull - a stunning stretch of water between the Isle of Mull and the historic shores of Scotland - and past the 13th century fairytale Duart Castle, situated among beautiful valleys and views of the glistening sea.
