The "Small Isles" of Muck, Eigg, Rum and Canna, each have their own very distinct beauty and character. Island hopping from the sea is breath-taking with always another stunning vista on the horizon, waiting to be explored. Shorter cruise times between anchorages allow for more guided onshore walks and wildlife watching. There are some excellent walks, especially on Canna and Eigg.

While cruising the Small Isles, the dramatic backdrop of the Cuillins on the Isle of Skye is ever present. Approaching Loch Scavaig from the sea is amongst one of the most captivating scenes on the west coast of Scotland  A shore walk to Loch Coruisk, one of the remotest Lochs on Skye is a popular choice as is cruising under the Skye Bridge to explore some of special anchorages on the east side of the Island.

The area is very much a hotspot for cetaceans such as minke whales and dolphins as well as white-tailed eagles. To get a flavour of walks and wildlife read the cruise report from Wildlife Guide Nigel aboard Proud Seahorse in May and also the cruise report  from Wildlife Guide Lynsey aboard Elizabeth G from August 2017

Dear Emma,

I had to write and thank you and your fantastic team for a wonderful holiday on Proud Seehorse last week.  The skipper James and his excellent crew looked after us amazingly well and only complaint is that I have put on too much weight due to the fantastic chef and his amazing meals. We saw much more than we had every expected to do including whales, two species of Dolphins, two species of Eagles, porpoises, otters, Deer and over 25 types of birds in just six days plus amazing countryside. We will be back next year for sure.  Amazing holiday many thanks to James and his tireless charming crew.

More than fulfilled our expectations.  Landed on all 4 small Isles which was our main reason for taking the cruise, plus we had a lovely day on Lismore.  Book without hesitation.

To the on board crew, my grateful thanks.  No one can take away my memories of what I say, they made it happen!  The scenery was superb and the clarity of it exceptional.

We really enjoyed our cruise and were made to feel very welcome on board by a very friendly and knowledgeable crew. The scenery was fantastic, and we enjoyed exploring the islands on foot with our great wildlife guide Lynsey. The anchorages and route were carefully planned by Rob the skipper to take account of the weather and wildlife reports. We were fortunate to see large numbers of dolphins, a few Minke whales, seals and white-tailed eagles, together with countless seabirds. The food was plentiful and absolutely delicious, prepared by Tony, the chef - it was just as well we went walking every day! Craig the bosun was extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble for any of the crew. There was a good library of books on board. I would certainly recommend Hebrides cruises to anyone who is interested in wildlife, walking, and good food!

Every member of the crew was lovely  always courteous, patient and ready to help with advice and anything else. Meals were fantastic and the availability of drinks throughout the day was much appreciated. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble . There was no compulsion to participate in anything, which was great as it allowed one to relax and enjoy things.

All the crew were very friendly, welcoming, helpful, cheerful and knowledgeable. Thank you also for the bottle of wine to celebrate our anniversary.  Lyndsay was a great and enthusiastic guide both for the wildlife and walking. Rob was an excellent skipper, who kept us safe and all the anchorages were chosen for calmer waters, which was appreciated.  The scallops which Rob provided were excellent- thank you! Craig was a great aid in all manner of duties. The food was fantastic- thanks to Tony for a wonderful menu each day.

I had a great time.  I am telling my friends about what a great time I had.  I can't say enough about the crew.  James set the tone, a very nice guy. You could not have had a better chef, baking fresh bread, great meals and Maddie took very good care of me.  The Proud Seahorse was spotless. Good ahead and book a cruise.  You will have an adventure to talk about for years.
