Today Magellan calls at Dundee. Explore the nautical history of this Tayside port-city, making sure to visit the RRS Discovery - the beautifully restored ship sailed by Captain Scott on his first Antarctic expedition.
Magellan arrives in Kirkwall, the historic capital of Orkney, today. Wander the meandering streets and marvel at magnificent St Magnus Cathedral, or join excursions to fabled Scapa Flow, Churchill's famous Barriers or the Italian Chapel.
Spend the day at sea, getting to know Magellan, her friendly crew and your fellow passengers.
Magellan reaches the island of Mull, today, which features breathtaking scenery, a spectacular coastline and is a haven for wildlife. In the small town of Tobermory you'll find picturesque, multi-coloured houses encircling the waterfront and, nearby, famous Duart Castle, the seat of Clan Maclean.
Today finds Magellan in Dublin, the incomparable Irish capital. This great city of culture - once home to Joyce, Yeats, Wilde and Swift - is also one of Europe's most engaging. Head to Grafton or O'Connell Street for some shopping, and take the opportunity to enjoy the city's famous bars, pubs, cafes and coffee shops.
The port of Ringaskiddy is the gateway to the great Irish trading city of Cork. Discover this historic capital of southwest Ireland on a shore excursion, or perhaps head into the beautiful rolling countryside beyond - to the fashionable resort of Kinsale, or to famous Blarney Castle, where kissing the Blarney Stone is said to grant you the 'gift of the gab'.
The Scillies are one of Britain's most verdant corners, often bursting into colour long before the rest of the country. Go ashore to explore tiny Hugh Town on St Mary's and the flower-decorated byways beyond, or take an excursion to stunning Tresco, where the world-famous Abbey Gardens house Britain's finest sub-tropical plant collection.
As Magellan reaches Guernsey, she calls at Charming St Peter port. Fortified Castle Cornet is a must-see, as are the views from Candie Gardens. Perhaps visit stunning Hauteville House, once the home of Victor Hugo, whose exquisite interior design is preserved in the house.
