Day 3 - Inverness (Scotland) - Loch Ness

Inverness is the Scottish Highland's major city. Literally, it means "mouth of the River Ness," and it’s the hub for international visitors who come hoping to catch a glimpse of the famous, yet elusive, Loch Ness Monster. While you’re here, be sure to take a cruise down the Loch and a stroll along the riverbank to not only take in this picturesque spot, but to work up an appetite for dinner in one of the city’s excellent restaurants. Inverness brings you the cuisine of the Scottish Highlands. Fresh seafood caught in the coast waters, salmon straight from the river and a host of farm-raised beef and lamb options. And, of course, there are a few local whisky distillers that are worth a visit. The streets of Inverness are teeming with independent boutiques and shops for keepsakes. Wander down medieval Church Street and find yourself transported back to days of yore on this cruise to Inverness, Scotland. Follow the circular path that descends Inverness Castle and winds along the river past St. Andrews Cathedral and into the Ness Islands. Winding along the banks of River Ness and crowned by pink sandstone castle, Inverness is a pastoral city of flower gardens and green parklands.

Day 4 - Kirkwall (Orkney Islands)

The largest town in the capital of the Orkney Islands, Kirkwall is the center of Orkney in more ways than one. Almost all roads linking the east and west pass through town; it is also the port that provides inter-island ferry links to almost all the northern isles. In addition, it is considered one of the most charming and well preserved small towns in Scotland, rich in scenic beauty , history and medieval architecture.

Belfast has undergone an enormous transformation in recent years and, thanks to a focus on expansion and regeneration, the city is now experiencing a tourism renaissance. Today, free from the mayhem that once was, this capital city of Northern Ireland has done a terrific job in both recovering from her tumultuous recent past and creating a thriving, positive public image. With new cultural quarters—the Cathedral Quarter, the Gaeltacht Quarter, the Queen’s Quarter and the Titanic Quarter—the former linen and shipbuilding epicenter is a flourishing community that blends industry with culture. Here, where the Titanic was so carefully built, you can see beautifully restored Victorian architecture, indulge retail therapy at a fabulous shopping center, and enjoy the quintessentially Irish experience at the lively waterfront, which is a friendly hub of live music, overflowing pubs and modern art. During your cruise from Belfast, experience amazing waterfront lined with modern art galleries, clubs that feature music from artists both local and from abroad, a chef-driven food scene that favors local and seasonal ingredients, and pubs pulsating with the Belfast way of life.

The town sits on a tiny peninsula jutting into the English Channel. At the tip is Portland Bill, with three lighthouses. Two 18th-century towers have been converted into holiday apartments and a birdwatching center. The 1906 lighthouse, painted red and white, invites you to climb its 153 steps to the top.
