Lord of the Glens

Cruise through the heart of the Scottish Highlands on this visually breathtaking voyage, traversing the Sound of Mull and four lochs as you navigate the intricate waterways of the Caledonian Canal

Scotland’s highlands are exceptionally beautiful, cloaked in a haunting air of mystery with an incredible mix of cultures. The region's turbulent history has left behind some beautiful and romantic castles and there is the most unparalleled scenery.

The Lord of the Glens, at just 150 feet can explore the region with ease and can squeeze through the Caledonian Canal. All done in grand style aboard this elegant vessel that has the feel of a small stately home. This voyage on board the deluxe ‘Lord of the Glens’ encompasses the main highlights of the Scottish Highlands. The voyage starts at Oban ‘gateway of the isles’, calling at Craignure on the Isle of Mull to visit to Duart Castle and continuing to the gaily painted waterfront at Tobermory. Cruise the Sound of Mull and the serenely beautiful sheltered waters of Loch Linnhe before traversing the intricate and endlessly fascinating Caledonian Canal to the shadow of Ben Nevis and the gateway to the sea. Experience a rail journey to Glenfinnan Viaduct, cruise Lochs Ness and Dochfour, all the while revelling in the hauntingly beautiful Highland scenes that are brought effortlessly to you, as we explore Scotland from locks to lochs and watch the glorious Scottish countryside and riverscapes slide slowly past. This together with excellent cuisine and refined accommodation provides for a truly unique travel experience.
