This wonderful cruise around the Scottish Isles will be a truly memorable experience. Sit back and watch as ruggedly beautiful landscapes pass you by, keeping watch for wildlife like puffins and gannets. Our ports of call brim with Scottish charm. We’ll visit Greenock, close to mysterious Loch Ness; Kirkwall, capital of the Orkney Islands; and the brightly coloured town of Tobermory. We’ll also cruise the calm waters of Loch Broom and sail to a sea cave on the uninhabited isle of Staffa.
Titan’s VIP door-to-door travel service collects you from home, for your journey to Liverpool, where our staff will greet you and assist with embarking Black Watch (3T+) in preparation for a late evening sailing.
Day 2 - Greenock
Arriving early into Greenock, the ‘Gateway to Lochs’, gives you the opportunity to discover two of the Scottish Highlands’ most desired spots, Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park. Discovering the magnificent mountain scenery and dense woodlands surrounding the largest stretch of freshwater in Britain is the perfect start to your Scottish adventure.
Day 3 - Tobermory, Isle of Mull - Cruising Fingal’s Cave
Admire the iconic pastel-coloured harbour of Tobermory, which will beckon you ashore to explore the island’s pretty capital, where attractions such as the Tobermory Distillery await. Later this evening, we will cruise by Fingal’s Cave - a sea cave on the small uninhabited island of Staffa, known for its natural acoustics. Ship to shore tender service.
Day 4 - At sea
Day 5 - Ullapool - Cruising Loch Broom
An early arrival allows you to discover the beauty of Ullapool, a pretty port offering a row of whitewashed cottages arrayed along the harbour and special views of Loch Broom. Later we cruise this stunning Loch, admiring its flanking hills and very distinctive appeal. Ship to shore tender service.
Day 6 - Kirkwall, Orkney Islands
Kirkwall feels more Scandinavian than Scottish: in fact the name comes from the Norse for ‘Church Bay’ and the church in question is the 11th century Church of Saint Olaf of Norway. This island is a wonderful place to discover ancient architecture and fascinating Christian, Nordic and Celtic history.
Day 7 - Lerwick, Shetland Islands
Sail into the friendly capital of the 100 islands and islets of the Shetland Islands. Until the 1600s there was little here apart from a few huts around a ‘leir vik’ - Norse for a muddy bay - however, the town today boasts fascinating small shops and delightful historic buildings near the port of Gremista.
Day 8 - Invergordon
Located at the head of a beautiful firth in the stunning Scottish Highlands, Invergordon boasts stunning scenic beauty and epic landscapes to explore and admire. The town is also the perfect place to learn interesting Scottish history amid the brooding splendour of 15th century Cawdor Castle.
Day 9 - At sea
Day 10 Liverpool
Early this morning we arrive back in Liverpool and your Titan vehicle will be waiting for the journey home.
