Explore our rich island heritage
Beautiful landscapes, rich heritage, ancient traditions and interesting cultures are waiting to be discovered on this circumnavigation of the British Isles. It’s a wonderful opportunity to step ashore on some of our more remote islands, visit far-flung towns and villages, explore Gaelic culture, and uncover tales of fascinating folklore. Charming Honfleur adds some French flair to what promises to be a memorable cruise.
Tobermory – Isle of Mull
Established in the late 18th century as a fishing port, Tobermory is one of the prettiest ports in Scotland. The picture-postcard village has a large natural harbour where colourful boats bob on the waves watched over by a rainbow of brightly, painted buildings backed by woodland-fringed hills.
Ullapool – Scotland
Ullapool is a traditional Highland fishing village which sits on a sheltered arm of land jutting into Loch Broom and has a natural deepwater harbour, one of the best in Scotland, which was carved out by the glaciers of the last ice age. The town has two main streets with signs in English and Gaelic, and a number of shops selling quality crafts and gifts. Optional excursions visit the famous Inverewe Gardens, which is an oasis of exotic plants bursting with vibrant colour, and take in the amazing Highland scenery.
Kirkwall – Orkney Islands
The capital of the Orkney archipelago, the Royal Burgh of Kirkwall sits almost exactly in the centre of Mainland, dividing the island into East and West. The magnificent St. Magnus Cathedral, a legacy of the town’s rich Viking heritage, dominates Kirkwall’s skyline.
Honfleur – France
Over the years many renowned painters and writers have been attracted to pretty Honfleur, which with its narrow, half-timbered houses, cobblestone streets and charming old harbour set in a sheltered cove off the Seine’s tidal estuary, is simply enchanting.
St. Peter Port, Guernsey – Channel Islands
The attractive town of St. Peter Port is a delight with cobbled streets, steep stairways and alleyways winding their way down between the houses to a picturesque waterfront of grey and white stone buildings. The second largest of the Channel Islands has a wonderful coastline with beautiful bays, and pastoral scenery that includes the handsome, much-prized Guernsey dairy cows.
St. Mary’s, Isles of Scilly
Britain’s only island archipelago, the magical Isles of Scilly lie just 28 miles off the coast of Cornwall. St Mary’s, the largest of the five inhabited islands, is a delight with white sand beaches, tranquil waters and stunning seascapes. The attractive village of Hugh Town, considered the ‘capital’, is the hub of the islands’ activity.
