Scottish Cruises: A Unique Way To Discover Western Scotland

We take our passengers (couples, singles, and families) to the majestic west coast of Scotland: the Outer and Inner Hebrides - beautiful, unspoiled coastlines of spectacular sea lochs, stunning Hebridean landscapes and incredible wildlife. In the Summer months the days are long and the nights are short allowing even more time to enjoy the wonderful wildlife and scenery. 

We anchor in the most sheltered, idyllic places, in some of Scotland's world famous islands such as Skye, St Kilda, Mull, Jura, Islay, Staffa and Iona where you can observe the wildlife, fish, swim in the sea lochs, visit famous malt whisky distilleries or just go ashore and explore.

We see incredible Scottish wildlife  - soaring sea and golden eagles, basking sharks, minke and killer whales, porpoises, dolphins, myriads of seabirds and common and grey seals. We have even seen a breaching humpback whale!

Our New Small Cruise Ship 

We have added a second small cruise ship, Seahorse II, to sail alongside our ex-tall ship St Hilda. Read more about her by clicking here.

A Small Ship Cruising Holiday With A Difference

Our two small cruise ships offer you a truly unique experience.  People of all ages can learn about the sea but also find out about nature and explore the local marine environment while enjoying the exhilaration of cruising the wonderful west coast of Scotland on our classic, ex-tall ship, St Hilda and our sturdy, mini cruise ship, Seahorse II. 

Our Scottish cruises will take you through a pristine environment, spectacularly rich in wildlife and breathtaking mountain and seascapes. A cruise aboard St Hilda or Seahorse II is truly a voyage of discovery.

Our New Specialist Scottish Island Cruises

We have two new 10 night cruises departing in 2019, aboard Seahorse II, which visit wild islands and remote anchorages in the Inner and Outer Hebrides:

- Skye, Shiant and the Summer Isles - this cruise will also have a photography tutor onboard at no extra cost to our guests

- The Magical Outer Hebrides and Shiant Isles

We also have some new quirky cruises starting in Summer 2019 with a wildlife specialist or an art tutor onboard, again at no extra cost to our guests:

A Guided Wildlife Tour to St Kilda and the Shiants

- A Guided Wildlife Tour to the Isle of Skye and the Small Isles

- Loch Ness and the Caledonian Canal: Art Tutor Onboard

- Mull Odyssey: Art Tutor Onboard

Book The Whole Boat

All our Sea Adventures are perfect for  family cruising holidays in Scotland. Families and groups of friends often charter the whole boat. The school holidays book up very quickly: if you have a special date in mind, don't delay.  We operate a system of flexible booking for small groups of friends and families who can choose the start date and length of trip, always assuming there is availability. Children especially enjoy fishing, sea kayaking, swimming, snorkelling, learning basic seamanship, hoisting the sails, rock pooling and the dinghy trips.

Solo Travellers

We host many solo travellers. We have single cabins available on Seahorse II and various cabin-sharing options in twin cabins on both small ships.
