Scenic Isles of Scotland
This escape to Scotland is proof you don’t have to travel far, or for very long, to experience the rugged beauty and unspoilt peace of remote islands and waterways.[ReadMoreMob] You’re in for five days of Scottish discovery, with scenic cruising on board Borealis an undoubted highlight. You’ll sail by the intriguing Dutchman’s Cap volcanic rock formations; watch as Atlantic waves crash against the basalt columns of Fingal’s Cave; and view the wild landscapes and historic sites of the Small Isles, Mull of Kintyre and the Sound of Mull.
When you get to take your discovery ashore, there are chances to seek-out the sights and highlights of the Orkneys, the Isles of Skye and Bute, and the Highlands too. You can go in search of seabirds amongst rugged landscapes on tour from Kirkwall, which is also your gateway to the UNESCO-listed Neolithic village of Skara Brae, while from Invergordon, Loch Ness and Highland landscapes and landmarks – such as Cawdor Castle – await you. On Bute, discover Rothesay’s unique ruins, including Rothesay Castle and, on the Isle of Skye, explore colourful Portree and its craggy coastline. What’s more, there’s also a visit to Northern Ireland, with time in Belfast to take in the attractions of the capital city.

The Fred. Olsen Difference
Our size advantage means we can take you to places that some of the larger cruise vessels simply can’t. We dock close to the heart of some of the world’s most beautiful cities and can take you on scenic cruising adventures showcasing inspirational landscapes. Our itineraries are expertly crafted to make the most of this advantage.
Aboard our smaller, friendlier ships you'll find there's plenty of room to stretch out by the pool, enjoy a drink and great conversation with like-minded guests, and make the most of your time away. Sailing with hundreds, not thousands, of others allows you to get ashore faster too, and make the most of each destination.
Each member of the Fred. Olsen team has been carefully selected for their warm and welcoming personalities. The quality of our people, supported by training and development, ensures they will give you a great holiday. In fact, 97% of guests rated Fred. Olsen’s friendly, attentive staff ‘Excellent’ or ‘Good’.
About Your Ship
Borealis, like her sister ship Bolette, has capacity for less than 1,400 guests but is larger in overall size than the other vessels in the Fred. Olsen fleet. This means when you come on board for a memorable cruise holiday, to relax and enjoy a premium level of comfort – as well as our renowned personal service – in the elegant public areas, lounges, bars and dining venues, you have even more space in which to do so.
With its warm, welcoming atmosphere and timeless style, and classic open deck spaces providing a place to fully immerse yourself in the magic of ocean cruising, Borealis is very much in keeping with what our guests have come to expect from a Fred. Olsen ship.
