This fascinating journey delivers the best of Scotland, England’s Lake District, North Wales, and the Emerald Isle. Begin in lively Glasgow and head north via the “Bonnie Banks” of Loch Lomond to Fort William, Loch Ness, and the Highland capital of Inverness. Travel south, stopping to visit a whisky distillery and Balmoral Castle (when open). Spend two nights in Edinburgh and visit the famous castle and Holyrood Palace. In the Lowland hills, see the blacksmith’s shop at Gretna Green before crossing into England. Delight in the beauty of the Lake District on your way to Grasmere. Explore the North Wales towns of Betws-y-Coed and Caernarvon, then ferry across the Irish Sea to the “Fair City” of Dublin, where an orientation drive shows off O’Connell Street, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, and Trinity College. Visit the Irish National Stud at Kildare. Stop in Blarney and at the popular resort of Killarney. Marvel at the scenic Ring of Kerry, the spectacular Cliffs of Moher, and stunning Giant’s Causeway. Visits to the pilgrimage village of Knock, world-famous Belleek Pottery, Derry, and Belfast are also included, before returning to Glasgow for the conclusion of the tour.
