If ever an archipelago was made for expedition cruising it is the islands off Scotland’s west coast which form stepping stones into the Atlantic. One of Europe’s last remaining, true wilderness areas affords the traveller a marvellous island hopping journey through stunning scenery accompanied by spectacular sunsets and prolific wildlife. With our naturalists and local guides we will explore the length and breadth of the isles, and with our nimble Zodiac craft be able to reach some of the most remote and untouched places including Lunga, St Kilda and the Shiant Islands, as well as the small island community of Iona.
There is no better way to explore this endlessly fascinating and beautiful region that will cast its spell on you than by small ship. Whether your interest lies in wildlife, gardens, photography, ancient history or simply an appreciation of this unique corner of the kingdom, this voyage has something for everyone. With just over 100 travelling companions, the atmosphere is more akin to a private yacht trip and ashore with our local experts we will divide into small groups thereby enjoying a more comprehensive and peaceful experience. Learn something of the island’s history, see their bird and marine life, but above all revel in the timeless enchantment that these islands exude to all those who appreciate the natural world.
