Dunstaffnage Marina, Oban, 2018

From May 2018 we will be operating out of Dunstaffnage marina, just three miles North from Oban, the gateway to the Hebridean Islands. This will mean that you will not have to travel to Tobermory, Isle of Mull for embarkation.

Please note your itinerary will barely be affected by this change. For those guests who have already booked a cruise for 2018, our sales manager will be in touch soon with more details.

New 2018 Cruise: Scottish Castles and Sheltered Sea Lochs Cruise

This new cruise takes you along the sheltered Sound of Mull, famous for its wildlife and bordered by the Isle of Mull and the Morvern Peninisula, and along historic Loch Linnhe. Our voyage will give you the full flavour of Scotland from the sea: its sheltered sea lochs, tranquil anchorages, picturesque harbours, ancient castles and even a whisky distillery.

The cruise is a wonderful introduction to the breath-taking Scottish Highlands and Islands and is perfect for that special family holiday or an Autumn cruise.

A Poem

Snapshots from our latest passengers on the Scottish cruise to the Isle of Skye and a wee poem:

Dear Captain, you’ve kept us safe well
Through seas that were calm or with swell
Sadly, good things must end
Thus my love I now send
But, St Hilda, for now
It’s farewell

Mull Odyssey (Staffa, Iona and Ross of Mull) Cruise, June 2017

Our guests on the last Scottish islands cruise have been enjoying some fresh mussels, kayaking, a wee bit of sailing, some beautiful Scottish scenery, and lots of sunshine! 

A guest review: "Our second trip on the St Hilda after 5 years and it was another brilliant trip. Lovely food from Lou, and Simon was extremely helpful and patient with my knot skills (or lack of them!). Saw dolphins, otter, seals, puffin and terns.“

Mussels Aboard

Our passengers this year have been enjoying fresh mussels from Loch Spelve. A wee poem from a guest from the last Scottish small boat cruise:

Oh what shall we have for our lunch?

We’re such a particular bunch!

We settled on mussels.

Bought quick, without hassle.

And cooked with no grit and no crunch.
