Food on board is prepared every day from fresh ingredients, using locally sourced food and speciality produce whenever possible. Vegetarians and special diets can be catered for.
You can fish from the boat and your catch can be served for dinner. All our guests say that they have never tasted anything more delicious than their freshly caught mackerel. There is also the possibility of responsibly sourced seafood from local fishermen - straight out of the sea and into the pan!
House wine (half a bottle) and continental lager is complimentary with the pre-dinner aperitif and evening meal. However, feel free to bring your favourite tipple on board. Onboard our small ships we have a fine (if limited) selection of single malts in the honesty bar. Onboard Seahorse II, Speideren and Gemini Explorer there is a limited supply of ice, however, onboard St Hilda we are unable to supply ice.
We serve morning coffee and afternoon tea. When onboard, afternoon tea often consists of warm scones served with clotted cream and preserves or home-made cookies or cake. There is always a "help yourself" fruit bowl available in the main saloon.

A wonderful adventure! It was nice to see so many out of the way places and relax to the rhythm of the life on the ship. Enjoyed the fun company and the crew. Favourite island = Islay. Favourite moorings = Tayvallich and Luing. Fun to get scallops, langoustines and mackerel along the way. Definitely a trip to remember.
It was all wonderful - watching over 100 gannets divebombing again and again like WW2 fighter pilots. Spectacular. Gathering wild mussels as big as the palm of your hand, then seeing them reappear as moules marinieres . Landing mackerel by the dozen and enjoying them as fresh as it's possible to be. Waitrose will never be able to compete!
