In 2024, cruise Scotland (and Norway!) with  a selection of itineraries which explore our coasts and Islands from the comfort of our vessel Nova Spero.

Our cruises allow you to experience a real adventure on land and at sea like no other, all under the care of our skipper and the crew of Nova Spero.

Our 2024 Cruises

Campbeltown and the Clyde

For our opening cruise of the season, join us for 10 nights traveling the whole of the west coast down the Mull of Kintyre, rounding it to head into the Firth of Clyde to pass the stunning Ailsa Craig. En-route we will visit Oban, Islay, Jura, Campbeltown, Arran, Bute, Tarbert and Loch Fyne, sailing up the River Clyde as far as the bridges will allow, before returning to Fort William.

St Kilda Cruises

Our signature cruise!  In 2024 we plan to make 4 visits to the Islands of St Kilda. Join us to explore the Hebrides and on out to St Kilda, the most westerly point of Scotland.
