The UK & Ireland
Engrossing scenery, sprawling countryside, inspiring waterways,
ancient historical sites, charming, culture-rich destinations,
and much more – it’s easy to see why the wonders of the
UK & Ireland have captivated inhabitants and visitors alike for
centuries. Cruising to the highlights is undoubtedly the best
way to experience these varied lands in one relaxed getaway.
Gloriously unspoilt landscapes combine with remote islands and charming towns to
create the recipe for cruising perfection in 2018 as Black Watch takes two turns to delve
deep into the ‘Lochs of Scotland’, navigating some of the most enchanting waterways
north of the border. These expertly-crafted itineraries pack in a seemingly endless array
of scenic delights to savour from the comfort of your ship.
Focusing on pure destination exploration – with majestic castles, prehistoric
settlements and Loch Ness Monster tours in the mix – there are two chances to
uncover the ‘Scottish Highlands & Islands’. Balmoral’s week-long adventure departing
in July also features the likes of Duart Castle and Fingal’s Cave adding wonderful scenic
cruising to your time at sea.
There are variations on this theme so you can choose the cruise that most
complements your tastes. Take an all-encompassing journey featuring lochs,
towns, islands and the vibrant Scottish capital, with potential to experience both the
spectacular Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo and the International Festival. Step on
board for a sailing to Scotland with a twist, blending in the landmarks of Hanseatic
Bergen too. Or take the chance to sample a slice of Ireland in Dublin before discovering
four diverse but equally enticing Scottish ports of call.
Seeking a holiday that’s just as relaxing, but with an unashamedly Irish flavour? Join
smaller-scaled Braemar and immerse yourself within the ultimate highlights both north
and south: the Giant’s Causeway, the Titanic Experience and more.
