Day 1 Dover

Titan’s VIP door-to-door travel service collects you from home for your journey to Dover. Embark Boudicca (3T+) in preparation for a late afternoon sailing.

Day 2 St Peter Port, Guernsey

In St Peter Port, Georgian and Regency architecture meets old battlements, tiered gardens and Victorian bathing pools. One highlight is Castle Cornet, an 800-year-old fortress that came under frequent attack from the French, became the last Royalist stronghold to surrender in the English Civil War, and still holds concrete gun turrets from the German occupation. Ship to shore tender service.

Day 3 Falmouth

Cornwall draws holidaymakers with great beaches, quaint fishing towns and Arthurian legends (and the hope of spotting Poldark). Will you spend your day in the harbour town of Falmouth, home to Pendennis Castle and shops full of pottery and pasties, or will you take an excursion to one of the county’s other attractions?

Day 3 At sea

Day 5 Portree, Isle of Skye

The Inner Hebrides are spectacularly wild islands, the dominion of majestic red deer, playful otters, and soaring sea eagles. We dock in Portree, the Isle of Skye's largest and liveliest town. It’s surrounded by rocky cliffs and rolling hills - a truly beautiful place to explore. Ship to shore tender service.

Day 6 Kirkwall, Orkney Islands

Kirkwall, the capital of the Orkney Islands, echoes with Christian, Nordic and Celtic history. Highlights include the ruins of the Earl and Bishop’s palaces. You might want to visit impressive Neolithic monuments, including two ceremonial stone circles (the Stones of Stenness and the Ring of Brodgar); and Skara Brae, the best-preserved Stone Age village in Europe.

Day 7 Lerwick, Shetland Islands

Over 100 islands known as Shetland lay in the far north-east of Britain. Only 15 of them are inhabited, leaving swathes of heather-clad moorlands confined by rugged cliffs and pristine beaches. We dock for the day in Lerwick, a tiny capital with independent shops and historic buildings. They give way to the well-preserved remains of a small Bronze Age settlement, cliffs that house thousands of seabirds, and wilderness patrolled by Shetland ponies.

Day 8 Aberdeen

Aberdeen is a striking granite city on a coastline visited by whales, dolphins and porpoises. It’s also a gateway to hundreds of castles and several renowned whisky distilleries. You could spend your day learning about the Gordon Highlanders, or embracing Scotland’s wild spirit one last time.
