Quirky Self-Catering in the Inner Hebrides

Our unique small ships are available for self-catering and are berthed in Dunstaffnage Marina, a superb marina in an idyllic location, just three miles north of Oban. In the summer months we also offer small ship cruising and wildlife holidays on the beautiful West Coast of Scotland to the Inner and Outer Hebrides. Please contact us for availability.

Dunstaffnage Marina is perfectly located in beautiful surroundings with easy access to Scotland’s west coast. Nearby Oban is a bustling little ferry port and is the gateway to the Hebridean isles. You can visit local islands, take wildlife tours, sample the local whisky, explore beautiful sandy beaches, admire ancient castles, fly-fish for trout on the local lochs and play picturesque and challenging golf courses.

Our quirky small ships are the ex-tall ship St Hilda (maximum 6 people), the ex-Norwegian ferry Seahorse II (maximum 11 people) and the ex-cruising lifeboat Gemini Explorer (maximum 8 people). All of our vessels have been converted to ensure that you will have a unique self-catering experience both in comfort and style in an authentic small ship environment.
