Belfast, United Kingdom
The Giant’s Causeway
Travelling inland you will find the mystical and mysterious geological formation of the Giant’s Causeway, approximately an hour and 20 minutes away from Belfast. Located on the North Eastern coast of County Antrim; it is the only UNESCO World Heritage Site in Northern Ireland and attracts visitors from all over the world.
No visit to Belfast is complete without learning of the city's legendary links to the infamous ocean liner Titanic. Located in the Titanic Quarter, Titanic Belfast opened in 2012 and is right beside the historic site of the ship's birthplace. Inside you can enjoy a fascinating insight into the authentic story and history of Titanic, from her construction to her ill-fated maiden voyage in 1912.
Portree Isle of Skye, United Kingdom
Old Man of Storr
Located north of Skye, the Storr is the highest point on the Trotternish Ridge – the longest geological landslide in Great Britain, which has resulted in spectacular scenery stretching for more than 30 kilometres (18 miles). The Old Man of Storr – Bodach an Stòrr in Gaelic – is a large, impressive rock pinnacle which rises to 535 metres (1,755 feet) and dominates the area.
No visit to the Isle of Skye would be complete without discovering Dunvegan Castle, Scotland’s oldest continuously inhabited castle. Situated on a rocky outcrop on the shores of Loch Dunvegan, approximately 35 kilometres (22 miles) from Portree, the castle has been the home of the Chiefs of Clan MacLeod for 800 years. On display here are a magnificent collection of oil paintings and clan treasures, including the Dunvegan Cup and the Fairy Flag, which is said to have magical properties. The estate also boasts extensive gardens with trees, plants, flowers and streams.
Eilean Donan Castle
Situated on its own small island overlooking the Isle of Skye, Eilean Donan Castle is one of the most iconic sights of Scotland. One of the country’s most recognisable castles, this impressive fortress often appears in photographs, films including Highlander and The World Is Not Enough, and – most famously – on shortbread tins. The castle was founded in the 13th century and was home to Clan Mackenzie and Clan Macrae. After it was partly destroyed in 1719 during a Jacobite uprising, the castle lay in ruins for almost two centuries until Lieutenant Colonel John Macrae-Gilstrap purchased the island in 1911. Over the years the castle was restored to itsformer glory and it reopened in 1932.
Scrabster, United Kingdom
Scrabster Castle, alternatively known as Bishop's Castle or Bishop's Palace, first recorded in 1328, is visible today as an earthwork and upstanding ruins. The area also
includes the remains of prehistoric settlement and World War II defences. Almost nothing now remains of the castle beyond a couple of grassy mounds and a rather more
modern pillbox built on the site.
St Peter Port, United Kingdom
Guernsey fell to the German’s in 1940 and remained under German occupation until the end of the war in 1945. The first air raid took place on 28th June 1940, whereupon
St Peter Port was bombed, killing more than 30 people. Today there are still fortifications and bunkers, which were put up by the German troops.
The Neolithic period refers to the latter part of the Stone Age, thought to have begun around 10,000 BCE. There are traces of this period all across Guernsey, from stonework, to tombs and burial sites.
St Peter Port is a bustling harbour town and has been since the Roman times. The island has historically been a paradise for smugglers. There have also been a number of shipwrecks in Guernsey and there is even a museum dedicated to this. You will also find a maritime museum at Castle Cornet.
