The Highlands and Islands cruise combines both fresh and saltwater cruising, as the Lord of the Glens sails between Inverness, Fort Augustus and Oban. These are wonderful times of year to make this classic Scottish journey, with the first fresh greens of spring and golden autumn colours reflected in the calm waters of the tranquil lochs.

We begin at Inverness at the northern end of the canal and cruise Loch Ness to Fort Augustus. The vessel is then lifted by a series of six inter-connected locks that leads to peaceful Loch Oich and onwards to Banavie in the shadow of Ben Nevis. Here we see Thomas Telford’s engineering masterpiece Neptune’s Staircase, a series of eight interconnected locks that takes vessels back to sea-level near Fort William. We then sail out into the sea and cruise south on Loch Linnhe, the long fjord-like loch that leads down towards Mull and Oban, where the voyage concludes. In between our cruising, there is also a full programme of shore excursions including a train journey and visit to the Glenfinnan Monument and visits to Duart Castle and Tobermory.

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 spring or autumn treat to be savoured.
