Ailsa Craig

Ailsa Craig

As they cross the sea on their way to Bangor, our crews pass the magnificent island of Ailsa Craig. The island has previously been a haven for Roman Catholics during the Scottish Reformation and a smuggler’s hiding place, as well as providing the granite for curling stones. Now it also features as the backdrop to our vessels departure from Scotland as they venture westward across the waters of the Irish sea, proudly flying the flag for Macmillan.

You can’t beat a good brew at the helm!

You can follow the progress of the cruise in real-time on the map below. We have set the map to follow Monet automatically, but you can use the search tool to find Galliver II or Florence Agnes II if you wish.


If you wish to support our crews on their voyage, and help Macmillan Cancer Support continue their vital work with those affected by cancer, please follow this link to our justgiving page:
