Fair Isle and Foula Expedition

This adventure is 3 trips rolled into one as we head to the Shetland Islands with their remote island jewels of Fair Isle and Foula. These iconic islands are seeped in history and culture of human civilization on the edge. Their craggy and remote locations giving rise to some of the most difficult sailing conditions found in the British Isles and their craggy inhospitable coast, home to hundreds of thousands of seabirds.
There is still bunk space on the first two trips and great discount for those of you who combine the two voyages. The final week is fully booked.
