Scotland Cruises: the Northern Isles and More

Nature reigns supreme in these lands of ancient historical traditions and majestic landscapes that will leave you speechless. Plan your holiday in Scotland.

On your thrilling journey through the Scottish Highlands and historic cities, start your holiday in Scotland by visiting Edinburgh, the Gothic capital where you can discover its dark and fascinating side at the same time. Perched on a series of extinct volcanoes and rocky crags, the old mediaeval part of town, with its labyrinth of cobbled roads, winding alleys and long streets offers you the chance to appreciate its historical monuments and enthralling vistas.


After arriving at the port of Invergordon, you’ll immediately be immersed with Costa Cruises in the true Scottish wilderness, brimming with myths and legends. It’s from here, the east coast, that you can then set off for the Highlands, the lands in the north. On your Scotland cruise, you’ll discover remote castles nestled between mountains and lakes, one of them being the world-famous Loch Ness Castle. An equally interesting destination for your holiday in Scotland is Lerwick, capital of the remote Shetland Islands, known all over the world for the wool and their landscapes where time seems to have stood still.
