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: 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: 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: 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: Campbeltown
Campbeltown was once known as the ‘whisky capital of the world’, and was home to 34 distilleries at its peak. Although just three distilleries remain, this is still a great place to learn about the process of making whisky, and it’s also a base for exploring the beautiful Kintyre peninsula.
United Kingdom: Kilbrannan Sound
United Kingdom: Holy Loch
The Holy Loch is a sea loch on the Firth of Clyde, where St Munn is said to have founded a church after leaving Ireland in the 6th century. The loch was used as a Royal Navy submarine base during World War II, and it was also a base for US nuclear subs during the Cold War.
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 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.|
Tailor-make your trip
Where to stay in Glasgow
We love the Hotel du Vin, at One Devonshire Gardens. A really special luxury boutique hotel.
