    ARRIVE IN GLASGOW, SCOTLAND. Welcome to Glasgow! Check into your hotel. The rest of the day is free to relax in Scotland’s largest city. At 6 pm, meet your Tour Director and traveling companions for a welcome dinner at your hotel. (D)

    Day 2 : GLASGOW–FORT WILLIAM–INVERN...

    GLASGOW–FORT WILLIAM–INVERNESS. Your Celtic adventure starts in earnest with a city drive, taking in the fine 12th-century cathedral, imposing university buildings, and elegant Georgian squares. On the way this morning: the “Bonnie Banks” of Loch Lomond, wild Rannoch Moor, Glen Coe, lovely Loch Linnhe, and Fort William beneath Ben Nevis. In the afternoon, look out for signs of the mysterious Loch Ness monster. Spend the night in Inverness, the Highland capital. (B,D)

    Day 3 : INVERNESS–CULLODEN–BLAIR AT...

    INVERNESS–CULLODEN–BLAIR ATHOLL–EDINBURGH. At CULLODEN VISITOR CENTER, hear the story of the crushing Hanoverian victory over Bonnie Prince Charlie’s Scottish clans. Then, drive through the Cairngorms National Park and visit BLAIR CASTLE, the ancient seat of the Dukes and Earls of Atholl and home to Europe’s last remaining private army, the Atholl Highlanders. Tonight in Edinburgh, don’t miss our optional Scottish evening with Highland dancers, bagpipers, and the Ceremony of the Haggis. (B)

    Day 4 : EDINBURGH.

    EDINBURGH. Morning city sightseeing with a Local Guide introduces you to the 200-year-old “New Town” and the famous scientists, inventors, and novelists who lived there. In the “Old Town,” visit EDINBURGH CASTLE to admire Scotland’s Crown Jewels, then explore HOLYROOD PALACE (when available). Later, a unique optional excursion: board the former Royal Yacht Britannia, once the perfect royal residence for glittering state visits and family holidays. Dinner rounds off this evening. For departure numbers August 4 through August 19, tickets are included for tonight’s performance of the world-renowned MILITARY TATTOO. (B)

    Day 5 : EDINBURGH–GRETNA GREEN–GRAS...

    EDINBURGH–GRETNA GREEN–GRASMERE, ENGLAND–LIVERPOOL. On the way through the history-steeped Lowland Hills, stop at Gretna Green. Then, leave the land of the Scots and journey into England through the tranquil Lake District, recently awarded UNESCO World Heritage status, to Grasmere, home of poet William Wordsworth, to try original [LF] GRASMERE GINGERBREAD. In Liverpool, visit THE BEATLES STORY, an atmospheric journey into the life, times, culture, and music of the “Fab Four.” (B)

    Day 6 : LIVERPOOL–NORTH WALES–DUBLI...

    LIVERPOOL–NORTH WALES–DUBLIN, IRELAND. Travel to lovely Betws-y-Coed, then through the incomparable landscapes of Snowdonia National Park and over breathtaking Llanberis Pass. After a stop at Caernarvon, cross Britannia Bridge to the Isle of Anglesey for a photo stop at tongue-twisting Llanfair.... At Holyhead, board your FERRY and cross the Irish Sea to Dublin. For a first taste of Ireland, why not join an optional Irish cabaret evening including dinner, dance, song, and laughter? (B)

    Day 7 : DUBLIN.

    DUBLIN. An orientation drive in the Irish capital includes statue-lined O’Connell Street, elegant Georgian squares, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, and Oscar Wilde’s Trinity College. Afternoon at leisure. Tonight, consider an optional dinner outing to the Guinness Storehouse. (B)

    DUBLIN–KILDARE–CASHEL–BLARNEY–KILLARNEY. Horse-racing country awaits this morning. Drive across the Curragh to visit the IRISH NATIONAL STUD at Kildare, whose thoroughbreds command respect on the racecourses of the world.

    Day 9 : KILLARNEY–RING OF KERRY–ADA...

    KILLARNEY–RING OF KERRY–ADARE–LIMERICK. Follow the road known as the RING OF KERRY for a spectacular 100-mile panoramic drive around the island’s southwestern tip. Have your camera ready for sparkling seascapes, brightly colored farmhouses, subtropical vegetation, and the breathtaking panorama of the Lakes of Killarney from Ladies View.

    Day 11 : SLIGO–DERRY, NORTHERN IRELA...
