Scottish Adventure Cruises


What We Do

Scottish Cruises

Explore Scotland’s dramatic coastline with an unforgettable Scottish cruise adventure aboard our expertly converted wooden hulled trawler 'Nova Spero'.

Skarvlines sets itself apart from other West Coast Cruise companies by combining both the West and East Coasts of Scotland with a trip around the top of mainland Scotland or through the Caledonian canal linking both in one cruise.   Combine this with wonderful food & drink, dramatic scenery, breathtaking wildlife & wild places and our expert local knowledge and we think we offer something really special.

Scottish Cruise Adventures

Guests can choose from a selection of Scottish cruise itineraries which allows the chance to enjoy a fresh perspective on hill-walking & mountaineering in Scotland.   With access to remote munros and challenging natural climbing features, experiences can include Suilven, Stac Polly and Foinaven.  We can arrange, on request, the service of a qualified mountain guide who will meet you at an agreed location at your own expense.
