The Celtic nations
For the visitor, the six Celtic nations have very distinct personalities, yet share much in common. Their location on the western fringes of the European continent means that the are tied together by the sea. Rugged cliffs, tiny coves, fishing villages, gently sloping river estuaries, seemingly endless sandy beaches and wind-swept offshore islands; you'll find every conceivable variety of coastal geography.
There are mountains as well...
From the Scottish Highlands to the peaks of Welsh Snowdonia, the visitor is presented with a wilder contrast to the more gentle charms of the coast.
A sense of a shared Celtic past also unites the different regions. Standing stones, Iron Age forts, holy wells and Celtic crosses are dotted throughout the six lands. Castles, country houses and grand estates tell of more recent incursions by outsiders seeking to tame the native countryside.
Quite simply there's something for everyone in Brittany, Cornwall, Ireland, The Isle of Man, Scotland and Wales.
For those seeking a true Celtic experience, there’s a lifetime of exploring ahead.
