Open to shipping in all weathers, it operates around-the-clock. Lerwick has strong ties with Scandinavian countries, particularly Norway, and this is reflected in the street names of the port.

    View of Invergordon, Great Britain

    Invergordon is a deepwater port near the entrance of Cromarty Firth, "the seaway to the Scottish Highlands." Inverness, where shopping is great and visitors can see tartans being made, is the capital of the Highlands, and is a half an hour drive from Invergordon. Loch Ness, home of the elusive monster, is just a few kilometres beyond. The town of Invergordon itself is small and modern, and now specialises in the construction of large offshore wind turbines. Invergordon also has a grain whisky distillery that produces many blended whiskies. Read more about Invergordon, Great Britain

    5 Thursday, August 26, 2021 Edinburgh, Great Britain 8:00 AM 5:00 PM
    View of Edinburgh, Great Britain

    Scotland's showcase capital of Edinburgh has a magnificent geographical location, perched on a series of extinct volcanos and rocky crags above the flatlands. The setting is wonderfully striking, as the modern city is often said to be built on seven hills. Both a historic and modern city, this metropolis is home to the largest arts festival in the world. Situated atop a volcanic crag, the famous Edinburgh Castle has an undeniably imposing presence, dominating the cityscape. Read more about Edinburgh, Great Britain

    6 Friday, August 27, 2021 Orkney Islands, Great Britain 8:00 AM 5:00 PM
    View of Orkney Islands, Great Britain

    The Orkney Islands, an archipelago of more than 70 islands, graced with temperate weather warmed by the Gulf Stream, feature some of the most dramatic coastal scenery. There are sea cliffs, some over 300m, descending to sooth white-sand beaches. Yet even more fascinating are the more than 1,000 prehistoric sites that have been found here. Amazingly, they constitute the greatest concentration of these sites in all of Europe. Read more about Orkney Islands, Great Britain

    7 Saturday, August 28, 2021 Ullapool, Great Britain 7:00 AM 1:30 PM
    View of Ullapool, Great Britain

    Ullapool is a small village on the shores of Loch Broom in the Highlands of Scotland, about an hour north of Inverness. It is the largest settlement for many miles around, and is a major tourist destination of Scotland. The North Atlantic Drift passes by Ullapool, bringing mild temperatures. The town of 1500 with its white houses is neatly set out along the shores of the Loch, with colourful boats in its small fishing marina, and holiday camping ground along the water front.

    8 Sunday, August 29, 2021 Belfast, Great Britain 8:00 AM 6:00 PM
    View of Belfast, Great Britain

    Belfast is the capital and largest city of Northern Ireland, and is currently experiencing a successful tourist boom. One of the most visited cities in the UK, Belfast has plenty of attractions and is a good base from which to visit virtually anywhere else in the North. In the city centre concentrate on the glories resulting from the Industrial Revolution – grandiose architecture and magnificent Victorian pubs – and the rejuvenated area from Ann Street to Donegall Street now known as the Cathedral quarter. Among the fascinating places that tourists visit is the Belfast Castle with its restaurants, small heritage centre, and beautiful views of the whole city. Read more about Belfast, Great Britain

    9 Monday, August 30, 2021 Liverpool, Great Britain 8:00 AM 11:00 PM
    View of Liverpool, Great Britain

    Liverpool lies along the Mersey Estuary in England, UK. Not only is it extremely well known for the Beatles and other groups from the Merseybeat era, it is also home to the oldest Black African and Chinese communities in Europe. In addition, several areas of the city have been granted World Heritage Site status. Most visitors make sure to visit Paul McCartney's birthplace and other famous haunts of the Beatles by taking a nostalgic tour during their stay. Read more about Liverpool, Great Britain

    10 Tuesday, August 31, 2021 Holyhead, Great Britain 8:00 AM 6:00 PM
    View of Holyhead, Great Britain

    Holyhead is the largest town on the island of Anglesey, off the coast of Wales, and is perhaps known best for being a busy ferry port. It is also well known for offering easy access to some of the best attractions in the country. Subsequently, visitors typically spend the whole day on day trips through Wales to see, for example, the three nearby medieval castle towns, the more distant Snowdonia National Park and the Ffestiniog Steam Railway. However, visitors should also note that the town has a number of interesting attractions and is a bustling shopping and visitors' area in its own right. Read more about Holyhead, Great Britain

    11 Wednesday, September 1, 2021 Dublin, Ireland 7:00 AM 6:00 PM
    View of Dublin, Ireland

    This capital and largest city of Ireland is situated on the mid-east coast at the mouth of the River Liffey. Dublin has more green spaces per square kilometre than any other European capital city, with 97% of city residents living within 300 meters of a park area. But Dublin’s greatest draw remains Dubliners themselves, both native-born and blown in. When at their ease, they are the greatest hosts of all, providing a life-affirming experience that will restore your faith in human nature. Read more about Dublin, Ireland

    12 Thursday, September 2, 2021 At Sea
    13 Friday, September 3, 2021 Dover, Great Britain 6:30 AM 6:00 PM
    View of Dover, Great Britain

    Dover, the world’s busiest ferry port, is located in the county of Kent, England, at the extreme SE corner of Britain. It faces France across the narrowest part of the English Channel, 35 km away across the Straits of Dover. Possibly best known for its lyrically famous ‘White Cliffs’, archaeological finds have revealed that the area has always been a focus for peoples entering and leaving Britain, and this continues to this day. This goes some way to explaining why this region in Kent has more than its fair share of castles, stately homes and museums than any other coastal region in the UK.

    14 Saturday, September 4, 2021 Greenwich, Great Britain 12:00 PM 12:00 AM
    View of Greenwich, Great Britain

    Greenwich Pier on the River Thames in the London borough of Greenwich, UK, is upstream from the London Barrage, and downstream from the heart of London. The name says you are within walking distance of the historic Royal Observatory, Greenwich (now a museum), marking zero degrees longitude, where you can be photographed with one foot in the Eastern hemisphere and one foot in the Western hemisphere.
