In partnership with LE POINT and with featured guest Franz-Olivier Giesbert.

This cruise is specially-tailored for French-speaking travelers and lectures will be conducted in French only.

From Edinburgh to Glasgow, PONANT brings you aboard Le Bellot for an exceptional cruise to Celtic lands following an 8-day itinerary along the magnificent Scottish archipelagos of Shetland Islands, Orkney Islands and Hebrides Islands.

Throughout your journey, you will benefit from an excursion included per person per port of call, to choose from a selection offered by PONANT. During this cruise, admire the mysterious Calanais Standing Stones when your ship calls at Stornoway; visit the Ben Nevis distillery from Fort Williams to dive into the Scottish way of life; or discover crofting in the Shetland Islands, from Lerwick, and meet shepherds and their dogs during a memorable demonstration. The diversity of experiences on offer promises you intense and varied moments (to discover the full range of excursions, go to the itinerary tab).

Departing from Edinburgh, city of history and labelled city of literature by UNESCO, you will first call at the port of Lerwick in the Shetland Islands. This port is well known because just a few kilometres inland lie the remarkable ruins of Scalloway Castle, built in 1600.

You will then head for the Orkney archipelago and its windswept moorland landscape. Le Bellot will sail towards Kirkwall, capital of the Orkney Islands, where numerous seabirds, such as gannets and European shags, have taken up residence.

You will also discover the Isle of Skye, known for its rich Gaelic culture, its famous bridge, and its stunning scenery, Stornoway, the largest city in the Hebrides with a warm and friendly atmosphere.

You will then sail towards Fort William. This harbour town on the shores of Loch Linnhe is steeped in Scottish history and tradition, close to the beautiful and spectacular scenery of Glencoe.

Finally, you will reach Glasgow, Scotland's warm cultural capital with a rich artistic and architectural heritage, your disembarkation port.
