Celtic Welcomes - new island odyssey tours

Celtic Welcomes, established Scottish tour wholesaling specialist, is leading the way for UK coach operators in 2010-11 with a new range of island-hopping and inclusive boat cruise tours.

Celtic Welcomes has developed a range of purely island-based, as well as island/mainland combination tours. These itineraries open up often neglected areas to the UK coach tour market and make comprehensive use of Caledonian MacBrayne’s excellent ferry network. Proving particularly popular are “Scotland in Miniature” tours which combine several nights in either Ayrshire, Homecoming country, or on the Isle of Arran, then onto the Isle of Mull, following in Saint Columba’s footsteps from the Mull of Kintyre to the island of Iona.

Other popular Island Odysseys include the Southern Hebridean Isles of Gigha, with its world-famous gardens, Jura with its George Orwell connections, and Islay, renowned for its peaty malt distilleries. For those who prefer one base for their holiday, there is also an enticing variety of inclusive tours, such as “Cruise 3 Scottish Lochs” or “Steam breaks” - choose from boat trips with a warming whisky coffee, ocean-going steamship cruises, conventional and steam rail trips, adding colour and interest to enhance any tour programme.
