See all the shades of green in Scotland and Ireland on this tour through Celtic country. Head off the beaten path to archipelagos that have changed very little since Viking days – places with eerie landscapes of sea stacks and waterfalls, where crofters, weavers, shepherds and fishermen still make a living as their ancestors did. Come across tiny villages of sod-roofed cottages straight out of Middle Earth. Watch clown-like puffins crowd vertigo-inducing cliffs, stand near stone circles more than 5,000 years old, and treat your tastebuds to some of the freshest seafood that has ever passed your lips. Then on to mainland Scotland and Ireland, the land of brogues, cèilidhs, castles and military tattoos. Search for a glimpse of Nessie in the Highlands and walk in the footsteps of William Wallace and Mary Queen of Scots at Edinburgh Castle. Experience the strange mixture of whimsy and Gothic brooding charm in Dublin and Belfast, inspiration for a pantheon of Irish novels from Gulliver’s Travels and The Chronicles of Narnia to Dracula. You won’t need a leprechaun to bring you luck on this journey. Every day is filled with good fortune.
