Take a cruise in Norway and watch the Northern Lights with wildlife photographer Doug Allan BOOK NOW >

Visit remote islands, fairytale castles and charming port towns over seven nights on aboard small ship Lord of the Glens

If you were going to compile a bucket list of British breaks, this is surely a contender. On this trip, you'll have the chance to sail on a comfortable yacht through the Highlands and islands of Scotland, exploring the endlessly beautiful Caledonian Canal, hidden sea lochs and the magical islands of Scotland's western shore.

Loch Ness, Loch Nevis, the Sound of Mull, Iona, Eigg, Skye, Fort Augustus… the names conjure up images of glistening waters, wild landscapes and towering castles, of majestic flora and fauna, and of myths and legends.

There is no better way to explore than on board the Lord of the Glens. This is not a cruise, but a small ship experience, similar to the Royal Yacht Britannia. With just 26 outward-facing en suite cabins and a maximum of 54 passengers, the yacht offers comfortable accommodation and superb cuisine.

There are also fascinating excursions on a choice of two amazing itineraries. So, sit back with a wee dram and book your place on this glorious Scottish adventure.

Please note: Depending on your departure date, your itinerary will either be Kyle of Lochalsh to Inverness or Inverness to Kyle of Lochalsh.
