Scotland is a land of mountain wildernesses, incredible wildlife, lonely sea lochs and islands, remote fishing villages, Gaelic speaking communities and deep glens. The country is famed for its long and dramatic history, archaeology and the warmth and kindness of its people. Scotland’s capital is Edinburgh and its castle, which dominates the city, is home to Scotland’s crown jewels. The city is a delightful mixture of medieval, Georgian and neoclassical buildings. On Scotland’s west coast is the port city of Glasgow rightly famous for its vibrant culture, museums, and Victorian and art nouveau buildings.
Visiting Scotland by both land and sea allows the visitor to truly appreciate the multi-faceted depth of this wonderful country: from Highlands to Lowlands; from city to village; and the rugged beauty of the Hebridean Islands. It is a unique experience when you spend part of your holiday on land and the other part at sea.
Travelling by sea we take our passengers (couples, singles, and families) aboard our two wee cruise ships (St Hilda and Seahorse 11) to the majestic west coast of Scotland. 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!
