-

If you were going to compile a bucket list of British breaks, this is surely a contender. On this trip, you’ll have the chance to sail on a luxurious private yacht through the Highlands and islands of Scotland, exploring the endlessly beautiful Caledonian Canal, hidden sea lochs and the magical islands of Scotland’s western shore. Loch Ness, Loch Nevis, the Sound of Mull, Iona, Eigg, Skye, Fort Augustus, Fort William… the names conjure up images of glistening waters, wild landscapes and towering castles, of majestic flora and fauna, and of myths and legends.

There is no better way to explore than on board the deluxe Lord of the Glens. This is not a cruise, but a private yacht experience, similar to the Royal Yacht Britannia. With just 27 outward-facing en suite cabins and a maximum of 54 passengers, the yacht offers sumptuous accommodat­ion and superb cuisine. There are also fascinatin­g excursions on a choice of two amazing itinerarie­s. So, sit back with a wee dram and book your place on this glorious Scottish adventure.
