On a journey between remote, hard-to-reach Scottish isles, you’ll get to see the scenery, wildlife and wonders of some of Britain’s most beautiful places. Scenic cruising on Bolette will provide many unforgettable sights. Marvel at the rock formations and unique landforms of Fingal’s Cave, Kilt Rock, Dutchman’s Cap and Duncansby sea stacks; delight in the scenic beauty of the Small Isles, Lough Swilly and Loch Hourn; and take in cultural and historical landmarks such as Duart and Dunrobin castles, and the ‘Holy’ Isle of Iona. Look out for seabirds perched on sea stacks and cliffs, and porpoise, dolphins and whales in the waters of Moray Firth and the Western Isles too.[ReadMore]

Stepping ashore in Orkney, Shetland and the isles of Skye and Lewis also provide opportunities for even closer encounters with their natural treasures. Seabird havens await, with Shetland’s RSPB Sumburgh Head – where fulmars, puffins and various other bird species live and breed – a particular highlight. Explore the coastal scenes of Northmavine at Shetland’s northernmost point perhaps; and uncover the fascinating history of Orkney at the ancient sites of Skara Brae, Stenness and the Ring of Brodgar. Skye’s craggy coastline will beg for exploration too, while centuries-old castles and beautiful Hebridean countryside are yours to seek out on Lewis. What’s more, a visit to Northern Ireland includes time in Belfast to uncover the treasures of the capital, such as the Titanic experience, or even tour to iconic Giant’s Causeway.

Your Fred. Olsen cruise to Scotland will also have conservationists on board from ORCA, who will be on hand to help you spot whales and other marine life, and sea birds too.

While Bolette is one of the largest ships, by overall size, in our fleet, she still has capacity for less than 1,400 guests. So on board you’ll find you have more space in which to relax, in public areas such as the all-season pool and the beautiful two-tiered entertainment theatre, and enjoy a premium level of comfort – as well as our renowned personal service – in the elegant lounges, bars and dining venues.
 
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, Bolette is very much in keeping with what our guests have come to expect from a Fred. Olsen ship.
