Scotland's East Coast Cruise


Join us for our

East Coast Cruises

We begin our first East Coast cruise all the way over in the far west! Starting in Fort William the Nova Spero journeys the length of the Caledonian Canal and out into the Moray Firth and the North Seas, ending the journey in Grangemouth, on the River Forth.

Our other cruises begin and end in Arbroath, travelling up and down the delightful East Coast of Scotland.


We're excited to base our Est Cost cruises in Arbroath, the original home port of our vessel Nova Spero, when it was part of the large East Coast fishing fleet. We plan on visiting Stonehaven, Dundee and St Andrews, then on to see the 3 Forth Bridges, and the River Forth. En route we will visit a variety of ports & harbours, scenic landmarks and iconic attractions.

The nature of our cruises is to provide a “theme” and to make the most of the options available to us based on weather, tides, access and things like local events & festivals.

Food & Drink

We include breakfast, lunch and dinner each day of your cruise.  Our cook will use the finest locally sourced produce, fresh from suppliers to deliver mouthwatering dishes.

Dinner will be the main meal of the day and will be served between 6pm and 7pm in sheltered anchorage or in harbour.  If we are still on the move we can dine if the water is calm or wait until we reach sheltered waters.  The other meals of the day require more flexibility as the boat may be moving depending on our schedule for the day.

A bar with wines, beers and spirits will be available.


Scotland’s waters and coasts are a playground for a wide variety of wildlife from minke whales & porpoises to puffins and sea eagles.   Binoculars and cameras are recommended.

Visitor Attractions

At the start of each cruise the captain will meet with the all of the guests to discuss the planned route for your cruise which will take into account tides and weather.  We will endeavour to visit some of Scotland’s finest distilleries, castles and attractions from suitable nearby mooring.

Walking & Mountaineering

There will be plenty of opportunity to explore Scotland’s hills and mountains so bring along your walking/hiking equipment.
