Cruise down the Caledonian Canal from Inverness on board superb small ship Lord of the Glens, through the majestic lochs of Scotland's Great Glen including Loch Ness and its mythical monster, to Fort William in the shadow of mighty Ben Nevis. These superb cruises visit a land of timeless mountains, deep lochs, beautiful seas, mysterious islands and blue skies, where great pubs, warm people and ancient traditions come together.

Continue on to the hauntingly beautiful Hebridean Islands of Mull, Skye, Iona and Eigg and admire the dramatic landscapes of these atmospheric islands. Visit brightly coloured Tobermory and imposing Duart Castle on Mull and revel in the peace and quiet at Iona's historic Abbey, before enjoying a drink at the most remote pub in the British Isles at Inverie, only accessible by boat or on foot. Cross the sea to the Isle of Skye for visits to the Cuilins Mountains and the picturesque town of Portree.

New for 2014 is our unique 7-night itinerary, Highland Lochs, Mull and the Caledonian Canal Cruise. Cruise from Oban to Mull, before exploring several scenic sea lochs along the coast. With spectacular views and interesting excursions, this new itinerary features visits to the beautiful Arduaine Gardens, and the Sea Life Sanctuary, which rescues baby seals. Cruise up the Caledonian Canal through the Great Glen and Loch Ness before arriving in Inverness.

For the fifth year, the exclusive Blue Water Holidays Scottish Cruise charters feature the 54-passenger Lord of the Glens, specially designed for canal and coastal cruising and the largest ship to sail the Caledonian Canal.

Relax in good company in the beautifully appointed public rooms on board Lord of the Glens, or retire to your comfortable air-conditioned cabin, one of just 27 on board. Enjoy fine cuisine expertly prepared using Scotland's best local produce, delivered fresh each day.

Both of our 7-night Scottish Highlands cruises include excursions and transfers between Inverness and ship, and are accompanied by a dedicated Scottish Highlands and Islands expert guide.
