The stunning coasts of Scotland and Ireland—strewn with craggy castles and windswept mountains—are the backdrop for a spectacular Celtic Isles cruise. Begin in Dublin with a tour of its landmarks before boarding Sea Cloud II. Sail north to call overnight in Belfast. Venture into the surrounding countryside to visit Ballywalter Park with its owners. Anchor in Londonderry for a specially arranged lunch at Baronscourt, followed by a tour of the estate's private collections and gardens. Cross the North Channel to step ashore on tiny Iona. Explore the Inverewe Gardens, a subtropical oasis, and call at Kirkwall in the Orkney Islands to discover a series of remarkable Stone Age sites. From Inverness, tour Cawdor Castle before sailing to Aberdeen to admire nearby Crathes Castle. Conclude in Edinburgh, to step aboard the Royal Yacht Britannia or explore the Old Town on a guided walk.

Optional Dublin prelude and optional Edinburgh postlude.
