Ireland and Scotland Discovery

Unusual voyage from Dublin to Aberdeen via the West Coasts of Ireland and Scotland | 17 days

Explore the rugged west coast of Ireland, journey through hundreds of islands and enchanting peninsulas. See some of the highest cliffs in Europe and discover unique flora and fauna. Blessed with fine weather, we ship cruise around The Skellig Islands that includes a 6th century beehive hut monastery – a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and a large colony of puffins and gannets. In Scotland’s equally wild and wind-ravaged west coast, we marvel at striking basalt columns at Fingal’s Cave, learn about the country’s Christian origins at Iona Island, revel in remarkable archaeological treasures and encounter some of the largest breeding colonies of northern gannets in the world. In the west coast of Scotland, we’ll sail through the Argyll Coast and Islands, a Mission Blue Hope Spot.   We’ll hike among some of the most spectacular coastal scenery in Europe and hope to encounter one of the world’s largest colonies of breeding gannets at Bass Rock.
