Scotland

A country of great natural beauty, Scotland truly is one of the most scenic destinations of the British Isles. From the rugged highlands to the unique islands of Skye, Mull, Straffa and Iona - Scotland has a vast area of unspoilt coastline, as well as an abundance of famous lochs, that can be explored in depth on one of our small ship cruises.  Ancient history, wildlife, nature and myth and legends go hand in hand throughout the Scottish Isles. You will be able to witness golden eagles, dolphins, deer, and puffins but sights such as the historic ‘Neptune’s Staircase’ on the Caledonian Canal and the 13th century Duart Castle – and who knows, you might even spot the infamous and elusive Loch Ness Monster... Home of malt whisky, delicious sea food and much, much more – is a cruise around Scotland the holiday you’ve been waiting for?
