Six Day Cruises

Sailing Holidays around the Islands of the Hebrides

Puffins

On our six day cruises we intend to spend our time sailing around the islands taking every opportunity to go ashore and see and enjoy the wildlife as well as exploring the islands. Most passages allow us plenty of time later in the day to do this, although we are often delayed when we see interesting wildlife such as whales, dolphins or basking sharks. There is lots of bird activity at sea, and some of the best seabird nesting colonies in the UK are available to us; Rum, Canna, the Treshnish Isles.


Walkers on St Kilda


We may also be able to visit some of the more inaccessible parts of the mainland such as Lochs Hourn and Nevis, and other isolated places such as Coruisk on Skye. Further south we may visit Iona for its scenery and religious and historic interest, and perhaps Colonsay and Isla or the isolated lochs of Jura. 
 


Wherever we go we will see the most marvellous scenery and wildlife - whales and dolphins, sharks and seals, otters and deer, and visit some of Britain's best bird watching sites. The profusion of flowers that are to be seen on the machair islands is also stunning ; there are many varieties of orchids as well as other beautiful wild plants but it is the profusion of colour which is most striking.


All the time there is the opportunity for some fantastic photography and even painting for the artistic spirit! Otherwise you can take time to just relax and let the world go by whilst enjoying excellent food, good company and wonderful scenery. 



Each evening we hope to stay in an isolated bay or anchorage to enjoy a peaceful evening and perhaps watch the the sun sink below the horizon in a myriad of colours. We always lie at anchor, and only in exceptional circumstances will we stay overnight in a busy harbour.
