From Glasgow to Edinburgh, PONANT brings you aboard Le Champlain for an exceptional cruise to Celtic lands following a 8-day itinerary along the magnificent Scottish archipelagos of Hebrides Islands, Orkney Islands and Shetland Islands.
Departing from Glasgow, Scotland's warm cultural capital with a rich artistic and architectural heritage, you will set sail for the Hebrides archipelago with Tobermory, a charming fishing port with multi-coloured houses whose distillery produces a renowned single malt.
You will also discover the Isle of Skye, known for its rich Gaelic culture, its famous bridge, and its stunning scenery, Stornoway, the largest city in the Hebrides with a warm and friendly atmosphere.
Le Champlain will sail towards Kirkwall, capital of the Orkney Islands, where numerous seabirds, such as gannets and European shags, have taken up residence.
You will then call at the port of Lerwick in the Shetland Islands. This port is well known because just a few kilometres inland lie the remarkable ruins of Scalloway Castle, built in 1600.
Finally, you will then reach Edinburgh, city of history and labelled city of literature by UNESCO, your port of disembarkation.
