St Hilda Sea Adventures

A unique sailing holiday in Argyll on the west coast of Scotland

We are very pleased to have introduced people for the first time to Argyll on the west coast of Scotland - a beautiful, unspoiled coastline of spectacular sea lochs and stunning Highland landscapes, yet only an hour from Glasgow airport.  We anchor in the most sheltered, idyllic places where you watch the wildife, go fishing or swim in the sea lochs or go ashore to explore.  Dolphins, porpoises, basking sharks, otters, red squirrels and many species of birds are regularly seen and even the occasional Minke whale. We have even seen a breaching humpback whale in Loch Long!

A sailing holiday with a difference

If you are looking for a sailing holiday with a difference, we offer something truly unique.  People of all ages can learn about the sea but also find out about nature and explore the local marine environment. 

New wildlife cruises

Since we started St Hilda Sea Adventures, we have noticed more and more interest from our guests on exploring the marine environment and finding out about the local wildlife.  We are responding to this by introducing marine wildlife cruises; guests on board will still enjoy the exhilaration of St Hilda under full sail, but have a more in-depth look at the wonderful environment through which we travel.

Guest Reviews

We get amazing feedback from our guests who think that St Hilda, and our cruising area,  offer something truly unique, at very good value.  We also get independent reviews from our guests who book through Responsible Travel.  Click here to view guest reviews>

Book the whole boat

St Hilda Sea Adventures is very popular with families and groups of friends who often book the whole boat at reduced rates.  The school holidays book up very quickly, so if you have a special date in mind, dont delay.  We operate a system of flexible booking for groups who can choose the start date and length of trip, assuming availability.  Children on board love the nature activities we provide for them!

We wanted a holiday that was a bit different and one that would suit the whole family from our oldest son at 22 to youngest daughter at 8 years. A small advert to sail St Hilda was spotted by chance in the RSPB magazine. What a lucky break. A week sailing a tall ship, navigating, steering, working the sails, catching supper, spotting wildlife and all this amongst the beautiful islands and lochs of the Scottish West Coast - magnificent.
