Scotland: Lord of the Glens – 8 day cruise (Inland Waterways and Idyllic Isles)



This seven-night cruise combines both fresh and saltwater cruising, as the Lord of the Glens sails from Kyle of Lochalsh to the islands of Skye and Mull to Oban, featuring some of the remote and breathtakingly beautiful scenery of Scotland’s west coast, and then through the Caledonian Canal to Inverness.

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 Armadale on the Isle of Skye, the little islands of Eigg and Iona, colourful Tobermory on the Isle of Mull, romantic Eilean Donan Castle, the Glenfinnan Monument, Culloden Battlefield and prehistoric Clava Cairns.

The MV Lord of the Glens has 27 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.
