Experience the exciting outposts of the Hebrides! Followed by gannets, fulmars and puffins we explore sites such as the green island Iona, the spectacular Fingal’s Cave on the small island of Staffa. We also take the opportunity to visit one of the many whisky distilleries the area is known for. Weather permitting, we reach the isolated islands of St Kilda, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Scotland’s westernmost outpost. On these remote islands, people lived for thousands of years totally isolated from the rest of the world. The cliffs around St Kilda are home to the world’s largest population of gannets – over 60 000 pairs nest here. During the expedition we also learn more about the area’s rich history, marked by Vikings, Celts, druids and clans.
