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: Eigg
The Isle of Eigg is part of the Inner Hebridean archipelago known as the Small Isles, and is easily recognisable thanks to An Sgurr, the dramatic pitchstone lava ridge that dominates the island. Climb the rock if you’re feeling fit, and enjoy fantastic views of Skye and Ardnamurchan from the summit.
United Kingdom: Shieldaig
Shieldaig is one of the prettiest villages on Scotland's west coast , perched on the edge of Loch Torridon. The village is mostly comprised of picturesque whitewashed cottages, and there are some great walks to be enjoyed along the coast and up in the brooding Torridon Hills.
United Kingdom: Gairloch
Situated on the shore of Loch Gairloch in picturesque Wester Ross, the scattered settlements known collectively as Gairloch serve as a popular base for whale and dolphin watching trips, and the surrounding area is home to some beautiful sandy beaches.
United Kingdom: Kyle of Lochalsh
Kyle of Lochalsh is a pleasant little town that sits at the mouth of Loch Alsh, close to the bridge that links the mainland with the Isle of Skye. Nearby attractions include the 13th century Eilean Donan castle, one of the most iconic tourist destinations in Scotland.
United Kingdom: Loch Scavaig
United Kingdom: Inverie
Pull up a seat and enjoy a pint at the most remote pub in mainland Britain, the Old Forge in Inverie. This sleepy little village is situated on the wild Knoydart Peninsula, and can only be reached by boat or by hiking 17 miles over some pretty challenging terrain.
United Kingdom: Iona
The tiny island of Iona, situated off the southwestern tip of Mull, is said to be the cradle of Christianity in Scotland, and is a popular place of pilgrimage. Thousands of visitors flock here every year to visit the Abbey, and the island gets particularly busy in summer.
United Kingdom: Ulva
The traffic-free, privately owned island of Ulva is situated just off the west coast of Mull. With a permanent population of around sixteen people it’s a peaceful and unspoilt place, offering excellent hiking and cycling opportunities, varied wildlife and an intriguing history.
United Kingdom: Tobermory
Tobermory, an old fishing station brightened by a crescent of colourful houses, is the main settlement on the Isle of Mull. This rugged and varied island is one of the most popular destinations in the Hebrides, and is rich in wildlife, home to species including white-tailed eagles, otters and whales.
United Kingdom: Craignure
The village of Craignure is the main ferry port on the Isle of Mull. This rugged and varied island is one of the most popular destinations in the Hebrides, and is rich in wildlife, home to species including white-tailed eagles, otters and whales.
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.|
