New Scotland cruise explores rarely visited Highland sea lochs

Monday 22nd July 2013

Explore rarely visited Highland Lochs and the picturesque Hebridean Island of Mull on a brand new itinerary for 2014.

Blue Water Holidays is chartering 54-passenger Lord of the Glens for the fifth year running and is offering a new cruise from Oban to Inverness visiting the charming Isle of Mull, magnificent sea lochs and the Caledonian Canal. These fascinating sea lochs are rarely visited due to their tidal nature, so this exciting 7-night cruise offers a unique opportunity.

Blue Water Holidays offer a second Scottish Highlands and Islands itinerary from Inverness through famous Loch Ness and along the picturesque Caledonian Canal. Continuing on to the hauntingly beautiful Hebridean Islands of Mull, Skye, Iona and Eigg, there is the opportunity to visit the most remote pub in the British Isles, The Old Forge at Inverie.

Lord of the Glens is the only ship able to navigate the Caledonian Canal and the open sea. Onboard, the ship has the relaxed ambiance of a private yacht, with freshly prepared meals made from local ingredients.
