Douarnenez is a picturesque seaside town in the Cornouaille region at the end of the Brittany peninsula, close to the Western-most point of France. Traditional Breton society is evident in the narrow streets and alongside the 4 harbours that open to the Atlantic Ocean. After dis-embarking, visit the Maritime museum or the surprise-packed Isle of Tristan. If it’s summer, explore the area – pick between beaches, restaurant-lined quaysides and local villages.
Oban (meaning ‘little bay’ in Gaelic) is a small harbor town on the west coast of Scotland, famous for its whiskey distillery. The town occupies a beautiful setting in the Firth of Lorn, and is a perfect place to find shelter from the Atlantic. Walking around town is a pleasure, and close by you’ll find mountains, castles, dramatic coastal scenery, and McCaig’s tower that resembles the Colosseum. In the first week of August, the town plays host to West Highland week, a yearly sailing regatta.
