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: Loch Dunvegan
The little town of Dunvegan, on the west coast of Skye, is famous for Dunvegan Castle, seat of the Clan McLeod since the 13th century. The castle sits amongst beautiful gardens, and has a jetty where you can take boat trips out onto Loch Dunvegan in search of seals.
United Kingdom: Stornoway
Situated on a natural harbour on the east coast of the Isle of Lewis, Stornoway is the largest town in the Outer Hebrides. The island is one of the last major strongholds of the Gaelic language, and is home to fascinating Neolithic sites such as the mysterious standing stones at Callanish.
United Kingdom: East Loch Tarbert, Lochboisdale
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 Kisimul Castle perched on a rocky outcrop just offshore.
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.
Arriving in Oban
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.|
