Explore Scotland’s rugged coastline and set foot on its beautiful islands on an expedition cruise offering stunning scenery, wonderful wildlife and some classic malt whiskies. 

Scotland’s liquid gold 

Setting out from Glasgow, your adventure focuses on the aspects of Scotland’s west coast and islands are famous for: picturesque lochs and mountains, iconic wildlife, and superbly distinctive whiskies. Tour some of the country’s oldest distilleries on the Isles of Arran and Mull, and delve into the ‘whisky isle’ of Islay with its eight working distilleries that each create unique, peaty drams. In Oban, the ancient seat of the Clan Chiefs, you’ll find both a quirky distillery and some outstanding cuisine.  

Lovely lochs and majestic mountain scenery 

You’ll journey to dramatically beautiful lochs with fascinating histories attached to them, as well as some hidden gems few others get to visit. Sailing into Loch Linnhe, we’ll travel to Fort William, backed by stunning Highland panoramas and dubbed the ‘Outdoor Capital of Britain’. Visit nearby Glen Coe and immerse yourself in the beauty of Scotland’s unequalled mountain scenery. 

Wildlife awakening to spring 

As spring stirs, so does the wildlife. Throughout your expedition cruise, you’ll be looking out for seabirds, seals and even dolphins and whales. On Islay, scan the skies for some of the 200 species of birds found here, including buzzards, Hen Harriers, oystercatchers, terns, cormorants, gannets and mighty Golden Eagles.
