Sailing from the UK
Setting sail from Greenock (Glasgow)
Gritty Glasgow is Scotland's largest city, renowned for its culture, style and the friendliness of its people. With internationally-acclaimed museums and galleries, stunning architecture, vibrant nightlife, fantastic shopping and a diverse array of restaurants and bars, Glasgow has something for everyone. The city centre has countless impressive Victorian structures, and most notably the unique masterpieces of one of the city's most celebrated sons, the legendary architect and designer Charles Rennie Mackintosh. It is set in outstandingly beautiful surroundings, so visitors can combine a buzzing city visit with an introduction to the glories of the Scottish scenery
In Glasgow’s Botanic Gardens, themselves ideal for a peaceful walk, don’t miss the Kibble Palace, a striking greenhouse with fine marble statues, vivid flowers and tropical palms.
United Kingdom: Brodick
Brodick is the main village on the Isle of Arran, a bustling port that sits on a bay opposite the towering Goatfell mountain. Highlights include the impressive 16th century Brodick Castle, and it’s only a short drive to Lochranza on the north coast, home to an even older castle and the Arran Distillery.
United Kingdom: Holy Isle
Just two miles long by one mile wide, the Holy Isle has a spiritual significance that dates back to at least the 6th century. The island was originally known as Inis Shroin, the ‘Island of the Water Spirit’, and is home to a spring said to have healing powers.
United Kingdom: Largs
The genteel resort town of Largs sits on the Forth of Clyde, just across the water from the island of Great Cumbrae. Take a stroll along the Victorian promenade, enjoy a classic British seaside experience at the amusements and learn about the town’s Viking heritage, celebrated at the annual Viking Festival.
United Kingdom: Great Cumbrae
The hilly little island of Great Cumbrae is home to a single town, Millport, where you’ll find Britain’s smallest cathedral. Seating just 100 worshippers, the Cathedral of the Isles contains an interesting collection of Celtic crosses. Outside of Millport, the lovely coastline is best explored on foot or by bike.
United Kingdom: Rothesay
The peaceful isle of Bute boasts surprisingly varied landscapes for an island of its diminutive size, from rugged moors and fertile hills to sandy beaches. Highlights include the beautiful gardens of Mount Stuart House and the imposing castle at Rothesay.
United Kingdom: Loch Long
Arriving in Greenock (Glasgow)
Visitors could easily miss the picturesque cobbled street of Ashton Lane in the city’s West End, decorated with fairy lights and home to the famous Ubiquitous Chip restaurant.
Your home from home
We know of no ship quite like this one; 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 48 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.
|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.
Tailor-make your trip
