Small Ship Cruises in Scotland

The Cruises

Spectacular small ship cruises on the west coast of Scotland aboard the St Hilda or Seahorse II. Join us aboard our sea adventure vessels and cruise the world famous Sounds that separate the many islands of the Outer and Inner Hebrides and Argyll. We travel against a majestic backdrop of white-shell sand beaches, high mountains and the wild forests of the west coast of Scotland. 

Each trip is a unique Scottish cruising holiday experience with your own dedicated skipper and chef. Come as a family or choose to be part of a friendly group of solos and couples or alternatively book the whole boat.

On some of our Scottish cruises we are delighted to offer complementary activities, such as a tailored Islay whisky tour on our 'Malt Whisky and Wildlife' cruise or a visit to the famous Iona Abbey on our 'Mull Odyssey' cruise. 

Based on our guests' feedback we have tailored our Scottish small ship cruises to offer you the very best of the Inner and Outer Hebrides and Argyll. Some of our new and exciting adventures include a St Kilda cruise, an Isle of Skye and Small Isles cruise, a Whisky cruise and cruises through the more tranquil waters of the Crinan and Caledonian Canals. Our new Hebridean cruises include visits to the Isles of Mull, Jura, Islay, Staffa and Iona to name but a few of the many Scottish islands. On our whisky cruise you will have the chance to visit Islay and Jura, Scottish islands that are home to some of the world famous malt whisky distilleries.

I loved the mountains, I loved the St Hilda, and I especially loved the sound of waves on the hull and being gently rocked as I lay in my bunk at night.
