Sailing from the UK
Setting sail from Inverness
Inverness, the capital of the Highlands, is a charming little city on the banks of the river Ness, at the northern end of the Great Glen that carves Scotland in two. Most visitors are here in search of monsters in nearby Loch Ness, or to begin a cruise along the Caledonian Canal. Other nearby points of interest include the battlefield at Culloden, where the British government defeated the Jacobite rebels in 1746, and the city is also home to a picturesque castle and some excellent restaurants.
United Kingdom: Fort Augustus, Corpach
United Kingdom: 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: Mull
The rugged and varied Isle of Mull is one of the most popular destinations in the Hebrides, and is rich in wildlife, home to white-tailed eagles, otters and whales. The main settlement is Tobermory, an old fishing station brightened by a crescent of colourful houses.
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.
Arriving in 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.
Your home from home
Designed to transit the intricate waters of the Caledonian Canal, Lord of the Glens has the elegant appeal of a traditional luxury yacht, and was inspired in part by the Royal Yacht 'Britannia’.
What we love
This recent addition to the Hebridean Island Cruises fleet is infused with the charm of a country house hotel, and is perfectly in keeping with the line's unmistakably Scottish heritage.
