A five night sheltered water cruise through the Highlands of Scotland.
Nothing to clutter the view, just hauntingly beautiful Scottish Highland scenes brought effortlessly to your panoramic window, this together with excellent cuisine and deluxe State Cabin accommodations provides for a truly unique travel experience. This five night voyage on board the deluxe ‘Lord of the Highlands’ encompasses the main highlights of a voyage through the very heart of the Scottish Highlands, including a transit of the intricate and endlessly fascinating inland waters of the Caledonian Canal.
The voyage commences at Inverness and continues via Loch Dochfour and Loch Ness to Fort Augustus and onto beautiful Loch Oich, the highest point of the canal, before reaching Loch Lochy and finally to Corpach (Fort William) which lies in the shadow of Ben Nevis and the gateway to the sea. At Corpach there is time to take the famed ‘West Highland Line’ train to Glenfinnan (Viaduct) returning to ‘Lord of the Highlands’ via the Glenfinnan Monument.
At Corpach the ‘Lord of the Highlands’ passes through the sea lock and enters the serenely beautiful sheltered waters of Loch Linnhe and then it is onto the Sound of Mull, and to the gaily painted waterfront at Tobermory. The voyage concludes with a call at Craignure (Isle of Mull) for the visit to Duart Castle before reaching the ‘gateway of the isles’ at Oban.
The voyage as shown operates from Inverness to Oban, whilst it should be noted that the voyage operates in the reverse sequential order on alternate sailings, (details available on request).
Transfers are provided from/and to Inverness and the ‘Lord of the Highlands’.
Alternatively independent arrangements may be made to join/leave the vessel at Oban as appropriate, with the train to (or from) Glasgow being particularly convenient when disembarking (or commencing) in Oban.
