Floating in the Celtic Sea 28 miles off the westernmost peninsula of Cornwall, England, Tresco is the second-largest island in the Isles of Scilly archipelago. Measuring about one square mile in size, this car-free island boasts a landscape of white sandy beaches, heathland and lush greenery. Among its attractions is a 17th-century castle and Tresco Abbey Garden, home to subtropical plants from around the world and the Valhalla Museum, displaying a collection of shipwrecked figureheads.

It sits on a narrow isthmus connecting the island to the Garrison, a walled peninsula that is perfect for coastal walks. The surrounding waters and rocky shores attract Atlantic grey seals.

Pembrokeshire Coast National Park encircles beautiful St. Brides Bay on the southwestern coast of Wales. The national park is known for its stunning scenery, diversity of wildlife and heritage sites.

Skomer and its sister island Skokholm boast the world's largest population of Manx shearwater birds.

Day 5 - Dublin

Arrive: Sun 29 May 2022 / Depart: Sun 29 May 2022

The Irish capital enjoys one of the loveliest settings in Europe. Craggy Howth Head shelters the natural harbor at Dublin Bay and the gurgling River Liffey flows through the center of town. The city's most pervasive influences come from the 18th and 19th centuries when elegant Georgian mansions were first built along the river – the arts also flourished during this period. Dublin has been the birthplace of some of our greatest literary figures, including Oscar Wilde and James Joyce.

Day 6 - Portrush

Arrive: Mon 30 May 2022 / Depart: Mon 30 May 2022

Portrush is a charming resort town situated along Northern Ireland's Causeway Coast, renowned for its beautiful beaches, cliffs, forests, headlands and ancient landforms. The Royal Portrush Championship Golf Course is a major draw for golf enthusiasts, and conveniently, Bushmills, the world's oldest licensed whiskey distillery, is a short drive from the 18th hole. Also nearby is the UNESCO-listed Giant's Causeway, sporting unusual basalt columns once thought to be the handiwork of a giant.

Day 7 - Iona

The tiny isle of Iona, the final resting place for many Scottish kings, stretches no more than three miles in any direction and lies in the Inner Hebrides off the Ross of Mull on Scotland's western coast. Its peaceful, windswept landscape of green rolling hills is dotted with grazing sheep and historic buildings. Set amid the pastoral charm is Iona Abbey, one of Scotland’s most important sacred sites, founded by St. Columba. The nearby ruins of a medieval nunnery feature a charming garden.

Day 7 - Staffa

Arrive: Tue 31 May 2022 / Depart: Tue 31 May 2022

Situated in the North Atlantic, Scotland's Inner Hebrides archipelago is home to the uninhabited island of Staffa. Known as the inspiration for Felix Mendelsohn's "Hebrides Overture," the island's impressive landscape of cliffs and caves is composed of hexagonal basalt columns resembling pillars, and includes the famous cathedral-like Fingal's Cave. As early as late spring, the island's warmer waters attract an array of wildlife, such as dolphins, minke whales and cliff-nesting puffins.

Day 8 - St Kilda

In the Northwest Highlands of Scotland, nestled near the head of the sheltered sea loch of Loch Ewe, about a mile from the village of Poolewe, sits magnificent Inverewe Garden. Now under the care of the National Trust for Scotland, it was created from barren land in the late 19th century.

Ullapool, a charming village lined with whitewashed cottages, is situated on the shores of Loch Broom in the Scottish Highlands. The surrounding pristine landscape of mountains, rocky shoreline and forests is an idyllic setting for hiking, kayaking and snorkeling. Nearby Leckmelm, a woodland garden with arboretum and shrubbery, is a magnet for garden enthusiasts. Other attractions include Castle Leod, ancestral home of the Mackenzie clan, and Glen Ord, venerable distiller of Scotch whiskey.

Day 10 - Kirkwall

Arrive: Fri 03 June 2022 / Depart: Fri 03 June 2022

Aplace of contrasts and balance, Kirkwall offers the high points of a large Scottish city – stellar local shopping and impressive historical sites like the St. Magnus Cathedral and ruins of the Bishop’s Palace and Earl’s Palace – as well as the charms of a small village. It is a relatively quiet ferry landing town that is also an excellent example of an ancient Norse settlement, making Kirkwall itself a living museum.
