This cruise itinerary is designed to spend less time travelling at sea, with more opportunities for exploring ashore, with the next scenic destination always on the horizon. Cruise sheltered waters, island-hopping from the Isle of Mull via the Small Isles to the Inner Sound of Skye, going ashore at little-visited inlets and islands best accessed from the sea. The anchorages and stopovers are all uniquely fascinating; cathedral-like caves and shell-sand beaches; small islands and magnificent sea lochs; tranquil inlets and tidal rips. A variety of rare wildlife inhabit these waters with eagles, otters, dolphins and whales frequently spotted with many other species identified by your Wildlife Guide both onboard and onshore.

Cruise Itinerary

Loch na Droma Buidhe: a very scenic anchorage with stunning sunsets for the first dinner on board

Isle of Eigg: Call into one of the Islands of the picturesque “Small Isles” for a shore visit to explore beautiful beaches under the dramatic shadow of the volcanic plug the “Sgurr of Eigg”

Elgol: Reaching the south coast of the Isle of Skye, stop off for a visit to the Spar Cave on the shores of Loch Slappin, an astonishing natural wonder with a cathedral-like structure. The best way by far is to visit the cave is from the sea.

Isle Ornsay: Crusiing around the Sleat Peninsula, we reach Isle Ornsay, one of the most sheltered and picturesque harbours on Skye.

The Sound of Sleat and the Kyle Narrows: We pass the cottage of Gavin Maxwell, famous for Ring of Bright water into an area where otters are frequently seen. Enjoy the exhilaration as we cruise through fast tidal areas to reach the sheltered Inner Sound with its islands to explore

Crowlin Islands: Set foot on these evocative uninhabited islands and sense the history behind the story of the people who used to live there

Isle of Raasay: This is a gem of an island with amazing geology and natural environment. We go ashore to explore with the everpresent breathtaking panorama of the Cuillins to the West and Torridon to the East.

Isle of South Rona: A seldom visited island where deer, white-tailed eagles and otters are frequently seen. The picturesque anchorage faces west, with views of the Cuillins of Skye. Visit the “cave of the giant” used as a church by the inhabitants and where the stone altar and seats can still be seen.

Eilean Donan Castle: Heading south again, pass the quintessential Highland castle at the point where three sea lochs meet

Inverie: Cruise Loch Leven to the village of Inverie, the only village in the UK not connected by road. Enjoy a drink at the most remote pub in the country

Tobermory: The main town of Mull, the colourful houses overlooking the harbour make this a very attractive anchorage for the final dinner aboard. The next morning head down the Sound of Mull for Oban and disembarking.
