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.  As a guide, this is a sample itinerary of what this cruise could include:

Day 1: We will set off from Corpach via Loch Aline to Tobermory for our first overnight stop.

Day 2 :  We will set sail early from Tobermory across the Minch to Castlebay on Barra for our 2nd overnight stop.

Day 3:  Today you will have a chance to explore the wonderful Island and Barra before heading to Eriskay for our next overnight stay.

There is a pleasant walk from Bunabhullin to Roshinish and maybe even to Calvay Island which is tidal.   Calvay Island is where SS Politician went aground, the story of which was made famous in the film and play Whisky Galore.

Eriskay is also famous as it was the landing point for Bonny Prince Charlie at the start of the Jacobile Rebellion as well as being the homeland of the Eriskay Pony.

Day 4:  Today we will sail out through the Sound of Barra and head for St Kilda, arriving in the evening at the village bay where we will spend the evening.

Day 5:  A day at St. Kilda to explore this enigmatic Island.  If the weather is really good we can spend another night here and perhaps camp on the Island or visit until late in the evening.

Day 6-7: We depart St. Kilda and sail through the Sound of Harris or the Butt of Lewis depending on the weather where we will moor on either Harris or Lewis, or perhaps even a night at anchor off North Rona.

Days 8-10:  We can either explore more of the Outer Hebrides or if you prefer head across the Minch from Stornoway to Ullapool and work our way down the coast eventually reaching either Portree or Kyle of Lochalsh.

Day 11:  Leaving Portree/ Kyle of Lochalsh we may visit Mallaig for night or sail down to Tobermory for 11th Night.

Day 12:  We head back inland and sail up Loch Linnhe and branch off up Loch Leven past Glencoe up to Kinlochleven and maybe back to Glencoe for a night at anchor.

Day 13:  Today you will have time to visit Glencoe  before we sail for Corpach to lock in for 1700hrs.

Day 14: Disembark at your leisure .
