This epic journey, through the very heart of Scotland is full of breath-taking contrasts in scenery, history and wildlife. The towering mass of Ben Nevis is a stunning backdrop to magnificent Loch Linnhe and the quintessential Scottish castle, Castle Stalker, before entering the 60-miles of the Caledonian Canal, from east coast to west coast. After the fun of negotiating Telford’s engineering marvel, Neptune’s Staircase, navigate more sets of locks and stretches of canal linking to several serene inland lochs fringed with forest and mountain. Fabulous Loch Ness, with Urquhart Castle dramatically situated on its banks is an impressive anchorage for the night and a spectacular setting for dinner. The canals and lochs offer excellent walking and wildlife spotting opportunities, including the Falls of Foyers and the locks at Fort Augustus. Guests have the option of bringing their own bikes on this cruise; read the information for cyclists>.

Always prompt and helpful emails from Emma.  Food was outstanding and beautifully presented - Margaret excelled!  Craig was a pleasant and helpful waiter too - always cheerful.     Rob's welcome into the wheel house was warm and friendly with fascinating information.  A very worthwhile and unique holiday expereince.    HIghly recommended!   Family members in the UK and here in Australia were impressed with the booklets and pictures.

What can  I say!  Fabulous trip.  Initial welcome from the crew was warm and welcoming which continued throughout the trip.  The food and service was of an excellent standard and served in a warm intimate and informal setting. Each night Ross the chef cooked up a culinary delight and delicious cakes and cookies through out the day with a lovely light lunch in between. The beautiful Seahorse and cabins were spotlessly clean. What a great way to travel seeing stunning scenery and exploring ancient woodland (walks and bike rides are optional) or just relaxing watching the world go by, curled up with a book, cup of coffee (or glass of wine!) on one of their many comfy sofas.  The hot tub at the back of the boat was a huge bonus when it came to the end of a long walk. I would thoroughly recommend this cruise to anyone wishing to relax whilst taking in some of Scotlands finest scenery. 10 out of 10. Well done Emma,Rob and Crew

This a beautiful cruise and full of interest, whether you like wildlife, scenery, engineering or all three.  There was plenty of time for on shore excursions.  The crew, as usual, were all great.
