Scotland Small Ship Cruises 2023/24
The Scottish Highlands are some of the wildest landscapes in the UK. A coastline of rocks and rural beaches bends into caves carved from cinematic bays, while a topography of emerald mountains and plains filled with wildflowers gives way to vast Scottish lochs, charming villages, and striking geological spectacles. Pine forests fragrance the inland hills around Fort William, distinctive rock formations puncture the sky on the Isle of Skye, while the air on the Isle of Islay is fortified with the scent of peat emanating from a local whisky distillery carried on a stiff Atlantic breeze. But Scotland unfolds in layers: stories from its bards, myths from the depths of its lochs, and fuel for food lovers from its sea and its land. It is the perfect landscape for adventure, romance, and discovery.
Exploring all of this by sea aboard a thrilling and luxurious small-ship cruise is ideal. The broken landscapes of the Hebrides and the Northern Isles are untamed, their shores wild, the seas harsh, difficult to explore by yourself, but an open book when adventuring by the sea with an experienced crew. You’ll hike Ben Nevis, sail along lochs, explore the gothic beauty of Edinburgh, and stand spellbound by the tapestry of nature woven throughout the magical Highlands.
