Experience an enlightening Bank Holiday break as Black Watch takes you on a five-night journey to destinations in three of the six historic Celtic nations. Visiting Ireland, Cornwall and Brittany, you’ll have chances to uncover historical and architectural highlights aplenty, and explore areas of outstanding natural beauty, all before sailing the effortlessly gorgeous Isles of Scilly.

A day in Dun Loghaire allows time to delight in the sights and attractions of this historical town in the Republic of Ireland.

On the Cornish coast, your Celtic-themed cruise takes you to Falmouth, gateway to scenes of picturesque creeks and rivers used for settings in hit TV series Poldark, and the starting point for hiking tours along the breathtakingly beautiful Lizard Peninsula. The iconic Eden Project is also within reach on tour, while Falmouth’s own attractions include Pendennis Castle – built by Henry VIII – and the National Maritime Museum. Your final stop is St Malo, situated on the gorgeous coast of Brittany. Once a fortified island, St Malo features a beautifully preserved old town encased by imposing granite walls, as well as glorious beaches perfect for making the most of the summer sunshine. From here it’s possible to head to the dramatic island of Mont St Michel to see its fairytale-esque spired abbey and medieval fortifications; or to nearby Saint-Servan, to explore the ruins of the Celtic Aleth Cathedral. To cap off your short, yet highly rewarding escape, Black Watch will guide you slowly by the Isles of Scilly, for unforgettable views of unspoilt beaches, forested valleys and enchanting coastal towns.
