Sailing from the UK
Setting sail from Oban
The waterfront town of Oban, situated on Scotland's west coast, is the main gateway to the Hebridean islands, and it's a busy place in summer. We recommend sampling the excellent seafood while enjoying the views across to the islands of Mull and Kerrera.
United Kingdom: Colonsay
United Kingdom: Barra
Barra is the most southerly inhabited island in the Outer Hebrides, renowned for its beautiful beaches and grassy dunes scattered with wildflowers. The main settlement is the village of Castlebay, where you’ll find the medieval Kisiul Castle perched on a rocky outcrop just offshore.
United Kingdom: North Uist
North Uist’s watery landscape of peat bogs and lochs is a haven for wildlife, including otters, seals and birds galore; native species include corncrakes, redshanks and red-throated divers. The gently undulating hills are ideal for hiking, and there are a number of interesting prehistoric sites.
United Kingdom: Harris
United Kingdom: Portree (Isle of Skye)
The Isle of Skye is one of Scotland’s most popular tourist destinations, thanks to a spectacular landscape of jagged peaks, misty moors and glassy lochs. The island’s biggest town is Portree, a pleasant little place with a colourful harbour.
United Kingdom: Rum
The dramatic mountains of the Isle of Rum offer some of the most spectacular scenery in the Inner Hebrides. The eccentric Kinloch Castle is a reminder of the days when the island was the domain of the Bullough family, while the native wildlife includes deer, ponies, golden eagles and Manx shearwaters.
Arriving in Oban
Your home from home
We know of no ship quite like this one; Hebridean Princess is a tiny little gem, dedicated to Scotland and all things Scottish, this Princess is fit for a queen!
What we love
A single ship with just 50 guests and in operation for only nine months of the year - hardly viable in the modern day, you would think - and when you step aboard you will also feel as if you have been swept into a bygone age, when kindness was key. A one word descriptor? Charm, perhaps. But that only begins to cover what is special about Princess.
|Style||Like a cosy and comfortable pair of slippers, Hebridean Princess envelops you the moment you step aboard. It feels like your best friend's welcoming Scottish home - with food and drink to match.|
