The cruise at a glance

The Olsen Way Highlights

We have designed this itinerary to take you on an exploration of some of the most hard-to-reach areas of Scotland, with chances to encounter remarkable wildlife and dramatic landforms. Many Scenic Discoveries await, including picturesque Loch Hourn – reached via a diversion, the basalt columns of Fingal’s Cave and the bonnet-shaped Bac Mòr. Sailing past the Small Isles and along Pentland Firth afford opportunities to spot seabirds and whales from your cruise ship with the help of wildlife charity ORCA. Visits to the unspoilt isles of Orkney, Lewis and Skye open up the possibility of seeing ancient settlements, uncovering Gaelic culture and exploring awe-inspiring landscapes.
