Emerald glades, quaint stone villages, and placid canals inspire curiosity and induce relaxation during this 10-day voyage from the Netherlands to Ireland, Northern Ireland and Scotland. Roll out on a cycling tour past windmills, waterways, and flowerbeds outside Amsterdam, then stay out late at local eateries munching on Bitterballen—battered and deep-fried meatballs perfectly paired with mustard—during an overnight port stay. Savor red Irish ales in Kilkenny, Ireland’s medieval capital, walk on basalt shoreline stones in the steps of mythical giants and sip Irish whiskey at the world’s oldest distillery outside Portrush. Touch ancient cairns and megaliths on the windswept expanses of Kilmartin Glen outside Oban, Scotland. Meet the Earl of Cromarty and sip a dram of malt in his kitchen during a tour of Castle Leod, one of the few remaining Scotland castles occupied by a founding family.
