For those who go off the beaten path, there are places in the British Isles where nature is still wild and history can be touched. This 12-day expedition-style voyage from Plymouth to Edinburgh is your chance to discover some of the British Isles’ most historically significant and wildlife-rich destinations. Cruising aboard M/V Sea Spirit, a small, luxury expedition ship is the perfect way to visit difficult-to-access locations where tourist value far exceeds tourist numbers.

The expedition begins with beautiful Tresco in the Isles of Scilly. In Scotland, you'll explore early Christian history on the peaceful Isle of Iona, magnificent archaeological sites in the Orkney Islands, and exciting birdlife on Shetland’s beautiful Fair Isle en route to Edinburgh.
