Join us for a
Winter West Coast Cruise
Winter in Scotland can be every bit as breathtaking as the summer months. The sunsets are the best at this time of year, too. Cruise the sheltered waters of the west coast with our Winter cruise.
A 5 night cruise of the sheltered waters of the west coast starting and ending in Corpach. En route we will visit a variety of ports & harbours, scenic landmarks and iconic attractions. See the cruise options tab for more details.
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.
An honesty 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.
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.
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.
