May — June

Join us aboard our historic wooden sailing vessel on an adventure to visit the isle of Mousa, home to the finest example of an Iron Age Broch, a large seal colony and some incredible coastline and wildlife.

Trip Duration: 1 day, 9.30am - 5.00pm

Dates available: Tuesday 10th May & Monday 27th June

Board & Disembark: Lerwick, Shetland

Boarding the Swan in Shetland's capital, Lerwick, at 9.30am, your day will begin with a comprehensive safety briefing including how to work the lines on deck and set the sails. We will then put this into practice, enjoying getting hands-on with the sailing as you head south towards the island of Mousa, one of the jewels in Shetland’s crown.

You will be well entertained during your trip by taking an active role in sailing the Swan, including hauling on ropes, taking a turn on the helm, and keeping a lookout, as well as spotting all the wildlife on offer.

We may anchor in a sheltered spot to enjoy a well earned lunch of soup and sandwiches or eat under sail. While it is weather dependant, we hope to anchor off Mousa so you can visit the Iron age broch, the finest example of its kind. If weather does not allow us to take the dinghy into the island, we will sail around some of Shetland’s spectacular coastlines, making the best use of the weather and the scenery.

Included in voyage
