Explore the history and heritage of our enchanting islands


Made up of over six thousand islands boasting spectacular coastlines and beautiful landscapes, the British Isles are rich in diverse cultures, customs and traditions. Our unique itineraries taking you to remote, far-flung islands, iconic cities and charming coastal towns that offer a fantastic opportunity to explore some of the best of both Britain and Ireland, and uncover the fascinating history that has bequeathed our island nation with a remarkable heritage.


Between the remote Shetland Isles and Outer Hebrides in the north and the secluded Isles of Scilly and Channel Islands in the south, the British Isles promises a truly fascinating cruising experience. Invergordon gives the perfect opportunity to discover the breathtaking Scottish Highlands where romantic castles and tales of clan feuds compete with legends surrounding a monster in Loch Ness. Kirkwall is gateway to the Orkney Islands with some six thousand years of history etched into the rugged landscape. In the stunningly beautiful Outer Hebrides, Stornoway is a window on the traditional crofting, weaving and fishing at the heart of the Gaelic culture.


On the picturesque Isle of Mull, Tobermory’s colourful waterfront is picture-postcard perfect. Perhaps visit the neighbouring Isle of Iona, the ‘cradle of Christianity’. Drop anchor off the tranquil Isles of Scilly, a highlight of our British Isles cruises, and maybe visit Tresco’s famous Abbey Gardens. With its cobbled streets and attractive marina, St Peter Port is a delightful introduction to Guernsey in the Channel Islands. Explore this picturesque island with its beautiful sandy bays. Ireland is of course the Emerald Isle and a visit to bustling Dublin reveals a charismatic capital with many historic buildings including St Patrick’s Cathedral, Dublin Castle and Trinity College.


Cruise Highlights


A cruise around the British Isles is the best way to really discover Britain and Ireland’s rich history and heritage. Here are just some of the highlights…


• Skara Brae, a beautifully preserved Neolithic village, is Orkney’s oldest monument and the Ring of Brodgar is one of the finest stone circles anywhere.


• See the dramatic Callanish Standing Stones on the beautiful Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides. Dating back to 1500 BC, the stones, which are laid out in the form of a cross with a circle in the centre were amazingly aligned to the sun and the stars.


• During your visit to Dublin it would be remiss not to indulge in a glass of the ‘black stuff’, the creamy Guinness that has become synonymous with Ireland.


• Discover why the unique Isles of Scilly seem a world apart. Although only 28 miles off the tip of southwest England, the sub-tropical islands have a tranquillity and a quality of life very different from the mainland.


• Enjoy a traditional Guernsey cream tea as you discover the charms of this delightful island, a little piece of Britain though it is geographically closer to France.


Highlights depend upon the cruise itinerary and may be subject to pre-registering for and the operation of specific shore excursions, and /or weather conditions.
