Scotland Slowly 2013 picture

Standing atop the rolling hills overlooking Scotland’s fabled lochs, craggy moors and castles, you can almost picture yourself as a Norse landholder, battling the forces of feudalism in the Northern Isles.

The North and West Isles of this ruggedly beautiful archipelago preserve history from the Stone Age, passing through many evolutions including Medieval Times and the Lordship of the Isles – a sea-kingdom blending Gael and Viking clans – to what it is today: Great Britain’s better half.

As our ship, Sea Adventurer, winds its way through the western isles and the Pentland Firth to Orkney and Shetland, Scotland’s preserved artifacts, including the largest collection of prehistoric megalithic structures in western Europe, will enhance our understanding of the distant past.

June is an ideal month to visit in search of the area’s abundant spring flowers and bird populations, with breeding well underway.

Photographers will have plenty to shoot, and much time to improve technique through small group tutorials.

We’ll experience a touch of island life too with music and merriment in community halls and local pubs with island folk.

The people who live here still remain close to their roots with traditions embedded by the original settlers hundreds of years ago.

Dubbed the Empire’s Second City, this bustling metropolis is a working town and the economic engine of Scotland. Known for its architecture, Glasgow’s cathedral spires and Italianate steeples sit harmoniously alongside neo-gothic towers, the sensuous Art Nouveau of Charles Rennie Mackintosh and the titanium, glass and steel that serves as the backdrop for this contemporary city. We will make our way to Oban by coach where we will meet the Sea Adventurer.
