Lord of the Glens – 7 day cruise (Voyage through the Heart of Scotland)18th Oct 2024
This six-night cruise combines both fresh and saltwater cruising, as the Lord of the Glens sails from Inverness through the Caledonian Canal to the Isle of Mull and on to Oban.
Highlights include Loch Ness, Loch Oich and Loch Lochy and Thomas Telford’s engineering masterpiece Neptune’s Staircase, a series of eight interconnected locks that takes vessels back to sea-level near Fort William. In between our cruising, there is also a full programme of shore excursions including visits to the tranquil little island of Iona, colourful Tobermory on the Isle of Mull, the Glenfinnan Viaduct, Culloden Battlefield and prehistoric Clava Cairns.
The MV Lord of the Glens has 26 beautifully appointed and well-equipped state cabins, all with windows and en-suite facilities. The ‘Robert Louis Stevenson’ restaurant presents cuisine using local and freshly sourced produce whilst the ‘Sir Walter Scott’ bar and lounge on the upper deck provides for magnificent all-around panoramic views of the Highland scene. With all meals and excursions included this cruise offers excellent value for money, a summer treat to be savoured.
