A number of different cruising itineraries are offered throughout the season.
Mull And Her Inlets and Islands
6-night cruise with dates from April til September.
Cruising the spectacular coastline of the island of Mull, the scenery is breathtaking with opportunities to call in at fascinating islands and the chance of spotting wildlife at close quarters. The cruise stops over at the colourful town of Tobermory before heading west to the Treshnish Isles, Staffa, Ulva and Gometra, a paradise for nesting seabirds as well as dolphins, porpoises, basking sharks and even the occasional Minke Whale. A visit to the isle of Iona from the sea is a unique way to soak in the beauty, tranquillity and centuries of history. Mull is a fertile island producing speciality produce to be sampled on board as well as amazing seafood caught from its shores. A visit to the local mussel farm on picturesque Loch Spelve is a popular shore trip for guests.
Isle of Skye and the Inner Hebrides
6-night cruise with dates from May til August.
The approach to the Isle of Skye from the Sound of Sleat is awe-inspiring, with the outline of the Cuillin mountain range a dramatic backdrop above the deeply indented coastline. To reach Skye, the itinerary has taken in the coast of Ardnamurchan and the “Small Isles” of Rum, Eigg, Canna and Muck; the close location of these islands, each uniquely different from the other, is an island-hopping delight. On the Scottish west coast, with views of the Isles of Skye and Raasay ever present, there is a choice of fjord-like sea lochs to explore including Loch Carron, Loch Nevis, Loch Hourn and Loch Torridon. The quintessential Scottish Castle, Eilean Donan, is en route, set dramatically at the meeting point of another three sea lochs.
Outer Hebrides and St. Kilda
10-night cruise with dates from May til August.
Situated on the very edge of the Atlantic, the Outer Hebrides is an isolated chain of stunningly beautiful inter-connected islands with a unique way of life. Following a stopover in the Inner Hebrides, the cruise has a wide choice of far-flung idyllic destinations, from the Isles of Barra, Vatersay, Mingulay and the Uists to the south coast of Harris. When favourable weather allows, St Kilda will be attempted. With a sea journey of up to eight hours, reaching the Archipelago is a true maritime expedition, with the intention to anchor for two nights, exploring Hirta and the stacs. Options for the return journey are the Shiant Islands, the Isle of Skye and the Small Isles to complete an unforgettable trip.
