Voyage Description

On a sailing voyage we never use the word itinerary, as skippers will always be aiming for the best sailing and shore landings for the forecast and most idyllic or sheltered anchors and ports. They are as keen as you to include some of the highlights describe, but you have to go with Mother Nature, not fight her. The description below is based on what we think might be possible, based on past trips, or experience, but nothing is guaranteed on a sailing voyage. If the following voyage description is not fulfilled for any reason, Maybe Sailing and Maybe Sailing Youth Initiative cannot be held responsible.

Join Blue Clipper on a great adventure around the North Scottish Highlands to the Archipelago of Orkney and ending in Aberdeen. We sail up the West coast of Scotland from the picturesque fishing port of Ullapool following some of the finest coastal scenery to the northern tip of Scotland and further North to the Orkney archipelago. Explore the islands on foot or hire a bike. Discover beautiful anchorages, visit Scapa Flow – the deepest natural harbour in Northern Europe. A great place for wildlife and wildflowers. alpine flowers flourish here and you may spot the Orkney vole in the coastal grassland! From here we head down the North East coast to Aberdeen. This is an opportunity to gain some experience of life at sea, enjoying the rugged cliffs and extensive sand dunes from a completely unique view point.
