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: Loch na Mile (Isle of Jura)
Jura is a wild and rugged island, where a population of 200 people is outnumbered by some 5,000 red deer. The landscape is dominated by the Paps mountains, and the island is known for its fine whiskies. Jura was also once home to George Orwell, who completed ‘1984’ at the remote Barnhill farmhouse.
United Kingdom: Isle of Kerrera
The little Isle of Kerrera sits just off Scotland’s west coast guarding the entrance to Oban, and is home to around 50 people. The fertile, hilly terrain and almost total lack of cars makes it a great destination for walkers, and it’s also known for the 16th century ruins of Gylen Castle.
United Kingdom: Crinan
Arriving in 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.
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.|
Tailor-make your trip
