Description

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 stunning Scottish Islands and Highlands and Belfast with its remarkable Titanic Experience. Discover picturesque harbours, historic castles and a charming corner of France, which completes this wonderful cruise.

Cruise Itinerary

Day 1 – Home pickup & embarkation in Bristol Avonmouth / Day 2 – At Sea
A uniformed chauffeur will collect you from home for your comfortable journey in a top specification car so you can begin your holiday in style. On arrival at Bristol Avonmouth Cruise Terminal, we board the Magellan and begin our journey, taking time to relax in our cabins or on deck and enjoying the use of the ship’s range of leisure facilities.

Day 3 – Honfleur, France
We moor up in Honfleur. Over the years many renowned painters and writers have been attracted to pretty Honfleur, which with its narrow, half-timbered houses, cobblestone streets and charming old harbour set in a sheltered cove off the Seine’s tidal estuary, is simply enchanting. Unlike many of its Normandy neighbours, Honfleur was spared during the bombing of World War Two and nestled in its tidy, picturesque streets historic buildings house art galleries, artists’ studios, boutiques, restaurants, cafés and fine souvenir shops. 

Day 4 – At Sea / Day 5 –Invergordon, Scotland
After a day at leisure on the ship, we arrive in Invergordon. Situated on the shores of the deep Cromarty Firth and with a fine natural harbour, Invergordon is a key port with an important naval history stretching back through two World Wars. The small, yet modern town is a charming coastal gateway to the beautiful Scottish Highlands and the incredible scenery that forms a stunning backdrop to the romantic castles and historic battlefields featuring in optional excursions along with the ‘Capital of the Highlands’ Inverness. Other popular options include the Glenmorangie Distillery and a visit to haunting Loch Ness with its legendary monster.

Day 6 – Kirkwall, Orkney Islands
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.

Day 7 – Portree, Isle of Skye
Set around its picturesque natural harbour and fringed by high ground and cliffs, charming Portree is the main town on the beautiful Isle of Skye. The impact of Skye’s stunning scenery is spectacular.


The soaring peaks of the Cuilins, undulating heather moorland, small lochs and gently flowing streams form a wonderful backdrop to optional excursions featuring crofting villages, and iconic castles with both colourful and poignant history. On the outskirts of Portree, the Skye Heritage Centre and Aros Experience bring to life the history of the island and give an insight into the life these Highland communities lived.

Day 8 – Tobermory, Isle of Mull
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.

Day 9 – Oban, Scotland
We drop anchor in the port town of Oban in western Scotland. Its name derives from the Gaelic language and means ‘little bay’. Surrounded by stunning countryside and dramatic coastline, Oban is also known as the Gateway to the Isles. Here we find small galleries, independent shops, a museum, pubs, cafés and restaurants. Take a stroll along the seafront to the ruined Dunollie Castle and to the sandy beaches beyond. The town is also renowned for its seafood, so make sure to enjoy a bite at one of the many establishments serving local fish.

Day 10 – Belfast, Northern Ireland
Samson and Goliath are much-loved landmarks soaring above Belfast’s skyline. The two great, yellow-painted, gantry cranes are a reminder of the shipbuilding industry that put Northern Ireland’s capital firmly on the map. Housed in an iconic, state-of-the-art, six-storey building, Titanic Belfast relives the city’s golden era and traces the story of the ill-fated liner built in the shipyards of Harland & Wolff. At the heart of today’s cosmopolitan city is Belfast’s elegant City Hall, which stands in Donegal Square. The extraordinary Giant’s Causeway is a popular excursion from this city with omnipresent Irish charm.

Day 11 – At Sea / Day 12 – Disembarkation in Bristol
After a day at sea, we arrive back in Bristol Avonmouth where we disembark and are met by our chauffeur for the journey home – a luxurious and stress-free way to end your holiday.
