Cruise Description

10 Night Cruise sailing from Dundee roundtrip aboard Magellan.

Here is a fantastic opportunity to really appreciate some of the beautiful scenery, fascinating history and ancient cultures of the British Isles. On this fascinating cruise, Magellan visits highlights of the Emerald Isle, dramatic Scotland, charming Guernsey and the remote Isles of Scilly. Discover picturesque harbours and historic castles plus a little French flair to complete this wonderful cruise.

Highlights of this cruise:

Kirkwall
The capital of the amazing 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. In its shadow, the town is a cluster of grey stone buildings lining narrow, flagstone streets. Excursions explore these beautiful islands whose history can be traced back some 6,000 years through Neolithic standing stones and the magnificent archaeological site of Skara Brae. Modern day Orkney is a hive of creative activity and its craft workshops are perfect for a special souvenir.

Tobermory
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. Tobermory is the capital of the Isle of Mull. Mull is the second largest island of the Inner Hebrides and its diverse landscape ranges from high mountain and wild moorland, to wave-lashed sea cliffs and sandy beaches. Neighbouring Iona is the tiny island where St Columba first brought Christianity to Scotland in 563 AD.

Dublin
The capital of the Emerald Isle is, with its friendly locals, fascinating history, legendary literary tradition and charming mix of medieval, Georgian and modern architecture, a city of unforgettable character. It lies on the east coast of Ireland along the banks of the River Liffey. Dublin Castle, Christchurch Cathedral, Trinity College and the beautiful square St Stephen’s Green lie south of the Liffey, whilst the glorious Custom House, majestic Four Courts and famous General Post Office add grace to Dublin’s Northside. Crossing the river the high-arched Ha’penny Bridge is one of Dublin’s most famous landmarks.

Ringaskiddy
Ringaskiddy is a port in County Cork, in the south of Ireland, and is a gateway to the Republic of Ireland’s second city - Cork, located approximately 10 miles away. Steeped in history, Cork City is fast gaining a reputation as one of Europe’s most fashionable cities. Cork has become the shopping, commercial and cultural capital of the south with a unique character and agreeable continental air. However, as well as offering the many amenities of a large city, Cork still manages to retain the pleasant charm and friendliness of a country town.

St Peter Port
For over 800 years Castle Cornet has stood guard over St. Peter Port. The attractive town 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. Guernsey is geographically closer to France, yet loyal to the British crown, and this is reflected in the wonderful Anglo-French ambience around the town. 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. The tax-free haven is perfect for duty-free shopping.
