  • Spot Atlantic seabirds and marine life as we island hop around Mull, UNESCO-listed St Kilda, the Treshnish Isles and Colonsay.

Romantic and rugged landscapes

Cruise from Glasgow to remote and wildlife-rich Scottish islands, experiencing local culture, history and activities. We'll be landing on beaches, going on guided hikes, sea kayaking and much more as we explore this fascinating region.

Whisky, wildlife and UNESCO Sites

You'll be transfixed by the raw natural beauty of the Treshnish Isles, Iona and Skye. UNESCO-listed St Kilda gives new meaning to wild abandon. Visit castles, historic homes and standing stones. And experience Scotland's cultural notes with whisky, tartan and tweed.
