    Lerwick, Shetlands

    24 Jun 2019

    Sturdy little Lerwick is the friendly capital of the 100 islands and islets of the Shetland Islands, northernmost outpost of the British Isles (located almost halfway between Scotland and Norway, to which they once belonged) - and setting of ancient archaeological sites, intriguing Viking echoes and, in more contemporary vein, the renowned Shetland knitwear!

  • Day 6


    Tórshavn, Faeroe Islands

    25 Jun 2019

    The capital of the Faeroes lies at the southern most tip of Streymoy - the largest of this archipelago of 18 islands. The nearest thing to a historic monument on these islands is perhaps the nearby settlement of Kirkjubour. This was once the seat of the Faeroese bishops, and the roofless cathedral has a plaque behind which is claimed to be a piece of the True Cross and cloth from the Virgin Mary's dress.

The Ship


Cruise ships were once famous for their style and charm. And our Black Watch cruise ship is a hark back to those days, when quality and service were taken for granted. Sleek and intimate, with cabins and suites for 804 people, Black Watch has a warm welcome waiting for you. Black Watch was voted 'Best for Entertainment' in the 2012 Cruise Critic 'Cruisers' Choice UK Awards’*. Only UK cruisers voted, and they were especially impressed with our service: “they consistently went the extra mile”. So, be captivated by the entertaining cabaret at the Neptune Lounge,and fire-up your taste buds for a treat at the Glentanar Restaurant. Or, share a relaxing drink over panoramic views across the ocean in our Observatory Lounge.
