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, Banavie
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
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
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.
