Pentland Sea Adventures commencing 1st June
March 4, 2016 by Colin Barber
In the far north of Scotland there is a place where races and tides flow fast enough to wreck even the hardiest of vessels, once patrolled by marine going tribesmen with a prowess to rival even the invading Norse, who named the area “Petlandfjord” meaning the Fjord of the Picts. Also known in Gaelic as “An Caol Arcach” meaning the sea of Orcs the names have have been anglicised and this stretch of challenging and treacherous water has become known as the Pentland Firth.
The area plays host to an incredible amount of wildlife, both year round natives, and visitors from further a field. Puffin, Gannet, Guillemot and Tern all come to nest, whilst the waters are patrolled by Seal, Dolphin, Basking shark and even Orca!
