LetsGoExploring and Green Tourism have teamed up to focus on sustainable tourism and only fly when we absolutely have to. All of our trips within the island of Ireland are by train and bus. Due to the Coronavirus, we have stopped the monthly feature, but the trip to Chiclana is our flagship trip… You can will be able to book for our tour next tour shortly. The “LetsGoNorth meets LetsGoSouth” project is linked through the story of the Spanish Armada and the Spanish Civil War, where many Irish and Scottish soldiers fought. “LetsGoWest” in Ireland links to Scotland has been described by local historians as an “Ulster Scots” project. Many galleons were wrecked off the shores of Ireland, and some in Scotland, as far north as Westray on Orkney.
The two projects, the North Highland Way and the route of the Spanish Armada could be linked across the Pentland Firth, creating a complete circuit. This was suggested to Orkney Council in 2018.
Join us on our trip north when the travel restrictions are lifted.
