Scottish Islands & Lochs in Five Nights

This short cruise introduces the diverse landscapes and picture-perfect towns of Scotland. In Greenock, you could glide across the glassy waters of Loch Lomond and take in the views across the Firth of Clyde. Sailing north, admire Tobermory’s colourful houses and perhaps look for wildlife on a boat trip across the Sound of Mull. Our final port of call is Kirkwall, capital of the rugged Orkney Islands, where you can discover ancient stone circles and Neolithic settlements.

Day 2 - Greenock

Greenock is known as the gateway to the lochs. You’re in reach of one of Scotland’s most famous - Loch Lomond. A boat trip on the loch’s glassy waters takes you past a castle, an island monastery and the 974-metre-high Ben Lomond mountain. Alternatively, stay and explore the town. Standing on the southern bank of the Firth of Clyde, it has a lovely setting - stroll along the Esplanade for views along the peninsula to Kilcreggan and Helensburgh.

Day 3 - Tobermory, Isle of Mull

Be sure to have your camera to hand as we sail into Tobermory - the town’s harbour is famously photogenic, with houses decked out in bright primary colours. Legend has it, a Spanish Armada ship carrying gold bullion sank in this sheltered bay in the 1500s. Learn about this remote and rugged island’s history at the little museum on the main street, or perhaps stop by the Tobermory Distillery for a sip of single malt scotch. Take to the water on a boat cruise and you might spot seals and dolphins playing in the waters of the Sound of Mull. Or head across the Sound to Duart Castle, which dates back to the 13th century. Ship to shore tender service.

Day 4 - Kirkwall, Orkney Islands

This morning, we’ll cruise into Kirkwall, capital of the Orkney Islands. A wander around the town’s twisting lanes will reveal a taste of its Christian, Nordic and Celtic heritage. Highlights include the ruins of the 12th century Earl and Bishop’s Palaces, and Tankerness House, a beautifully preserved 16th century townhouse. Further afield, you could immerse yourself in the history of Skara Brae, a 5,000-year-old Neolithic village, or see the ancient stone circle at Stenness, once a Neolithic ceremonial site.
