Scotland is spectacular in springtime. June is breeding season for birds. Search for whales on a Zodiac outing. Meet the locals and get a glimpse of island life. Raise a dram at world-famous distilleries. Wander among Neolithic ruins. Explore sea caves and bird cliffs. Savour Scotland—slowly.

The bustling metropolis of Glasgow is the economic engine of Scotland—and an architectural delight. You’ll find Italianate steeples, neo-Gothic towers, the Art Nouveau of Charles Rennie Mackintosh and the titanium, glass and steel of contemporary buildings.

We depart Glasgow via coach, to tour Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park—and then onward to meet the Ocean Endeavour, our home for the next ten nights.
