England Flag  FalmouthFalmouth

Blessed with stunning sandy beaches that stretch for miles along the gorgeous Cornish coastline, Falmouth – located at the southern end of the Fal Estuary, arguably the U.K.'s most picturesque network of creeks & rivers – is a fine example of just how beautiful Britain really is and is the perfect place to lay back and soak up the summer sunshine, enjoy a relaxing stroll or try your hand at scuba diving and snorkeling.

Scilly Isles Flag  The Scilly Isles Scilly Isles

These islands were at the hub of an almost forgotten civilization stretching across the Western Atlantic from the Hebrides in the north to Galicia in the south. The Isles of Scilly became a kind of Neolithic service station at the heart of this vast dispersal of populations from far and wide offered a safe haven for vessels plying their trade across the Atlantic more than a thousand years before Christopher Columbus set sail.

Eire Flag   Cork, Ireland Cork

From the time of the potato famines of the 1840s through to 1950, over 2.5 million Irish people emigrated through Cobh, mostly to the USA. Based in disused sections of the town’s railway station, The Queenstown Story – the city was known as Queenstown until 1922 – tells the story of this emigration. Overlooking the town is the St Colman’s Cathedral, with its carillon of 49 bells – one of the biggest in the British Isles. The outside of the church is neo-Gothic at its most florid, with flying buttresses, carvings and gargoyles to spare. Down at the quayside are memorials to those who lost their lives on the Lusitania, sunk off the coast in 1915, and to the Titanic – Queenstown was her last port of call.

Manx Flag  Isle of Man Isle of Man

These islands were at the hub of an almost forgotten civilization stretching across the Western Atlantic from the Hebrides in the north to Galicia in the south. The Isles of Scilly became a kind of Neolithic service station at the heart of this vast dispersal of populations from far and wide offered a safe haven for vessels plying their trade across the Atlantic more than a thousand years before Christopher Columbus set sail.

Scottish Flag  West Coast & Oban Oban

The Isles of Argyll are romantic, beautiful, inspirational and incredibly popular with visitors returning each year, some as a heartfelt pilgrimage. These Isles are truly unique and present some stunning scenery and interesting attractions such as the Tobermory village, doubled as Balamory on children’s television, Iona Abbey, Ben More and of course any of the six distilleries on Islay famous for unique whisky flavor exported around the world.

Scottish Flag  The Sound of MullMallaig

Flowing between the Isle of Mull and the shores of Scotland, the Sound of Mull is a beautiful stretch of water that forms part of the Atlantic Ocean..

Scottish Flag  TobermoryTobermory

Tobermory is a pretty little village with brightly colored houses located along the waterfront leading to the harbor and pier. The name Tobermory has its origins in the Gaelic Tobar Mhoire – Mary’s well – the water from which was said to have medical properties. Sadly, the Well disappeared a long time ago. The Mull Museum on the main street celebrates Mull’s history, with artefacts that include working implements used by local craftsmen.

Tobermory Distillery, the only one on Mull, was founded in 1798, but has been closed and reopened several times – the most recent reopening was in 1990. The buildings are those which were built when the Distillery first opened. It produces malt and a blend, with the former known as Tobermory the Malt: the bottle has an enameled label.

Scottish Flag  Edinburgh Edinburgh

Edinburgh is Scotland's compact, hilly capital. It has a medieval Old Town and elegant Georgian New Town with gardens and neoclassical buildings. Looming over the city is Edinburgh Castle, home to Scotland’s crown jewels and the Stone of Destiny, used in the coronation of Scottish rulers. Arthur’s Seat is an imposing peak in Holyrood Park with sweeping views, and Calton Hill is topped with monuments and memorials.

England Flag  Whitby Whitby

Whitby is a seaside town in Yorkshire, northern England, and split by the River Esk. On the East Cliff, overlooking the North Sea, the ruined Gothic Whitby Abbey was Bram Stoker’s inspiration for “Dracula”. Nearby is the Church of St. Mary, reached by 199 steps. The Captain Cook Memorial Museum, in the house where Cook once lived, displays paintings and maps. West of town is West Cliff Beach, lined with beach huts.
