20 metre 'Fifie' herring drifter

The Swan was built in Lerwick in 1900, and restored extensively in the early 1990s. 20m in length, she is rigged as a gaff ketch.

Join 'Swan' for our Sessions and Sail - Shetland voyage in April 2020.

Where will I sleep?

If sailing aboard Lady of Avenel, you will be given a berth in a double cabin. Bunks are comfortable and sizeable. Cabins are allocated on a same sex basis - if you are travelling with someone else it is possible to reserve a cabin, subject to availability.

If sailing aboard Swan, you will need to bring your own sleeping bag and pillow. Bunks on here are the fishing-boat style 'hole-in-the-wall', arranged around the saloon area; you will have a curtain to offer privacy.

What will I eat?

Scotland is famous for its produce; and we will have a full-time chef onboard who will prepare meals making full use of the exceptional ingredients available to us.
