Ports

Inverness is a city in the Scottish Highlands. It was a place of residence for Gaelic king Mac Bethad Mac Findlaich, immortalised by Shakespeare in his play Macbeth. With its multiple bagpipe players and a lot of Gaelic-speakers, Inverness is the perfect place to soak in the Scottish culture.

Sunderland is a coastal city in North East England, aging back to the 7th century. Whether you’re a nature or a culture lover, you will surely find a bunch of nice activities to do! For instance, have a lovely day out with fish&chips for lunch at the Roker & Seaburn Beaches or take a relaxing walk in Herrington Country Park. Also, go on a trip to the picturesque Penshaw Monument. Discover the Sunderland Museum & Winter Gardens.
