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.

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: Largs
The genteel resort town of Largs sits on the Forth of Clyde, just across the water from the island of Great Cumbrae.

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
