Explore Scotland’s Highlands and Islands BY LUXURY YACHT
Discover Loch Ness, Loch Nevis, Iona and much more on this incredible private yacht experience aboard Lord of the Glens
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.
