I would be inclined to pick the itinerary that appeals to me the most rather than the time of year. The two voyages we are discussing are voyage V914 (June 4-16, 2019) and voyage V920 (Aug 11-23, 2019).
Both of these itineraries call at Greenock (Glasgow), Liverpool, and St Peter Port.
The June voyage calls at Oban, Kirkwall, Dublin, and Cobh (Cork).
The August voyage calls at Newcastle, Newhaven (Edinburgh), Invergorden (Inverness), and Belfast.
Personally, since I have never been to Oban or Kirkwall, I think I'd pick the first itinerary. But if you haven't been to Edinburgh, that's a pretty big draw for the second itinerary. Perhaps others here can offer suggestions as to which of those two itineraries they would prefer and why, if that would be at all helpful to you.
