Scottish Temptations Itinerary

Day 1 - Oban

Embark in Oban and settle into your cabin. We remain alongside in Oban overnight.

Day 2 - Oban – Craignure, Mull

Explore Oban, the gateway of the isles, on foot and visit the impressive McCaig’s Folly for spectacular vistas across the bay to the Atlantic Isles. During lunch, we sail to Craignure, Isle of Mull, for a tour of Duart Castle. Seat of Clan Maclean for over 700 years, it dominates the view of the Sound of Mull with its huge curtain walls and solid keep. We berth overnight in Tobermory or Oban.

Day 3 - Tobermory, Mull - Loch Linnhe - Corpach - Banavie

Spend this morning in Mull’s island capital of Tobermory, exploring the brightly painted harbour town, before cruising the Sound of Mull and Loch Linnhe to Corpach at the entrance of the Caledonian Canal. From sea level, Lord of the Highlands ascends the spectacular eight inter-connected locks of Neptune’s Staircase to Banavie in the shadow of Ben Nevis, where we moor overnight.

Day 4 - Glenfinnan - Fort Augustus

From Banavie we take the West Highland Railway to Glenfinnan and cross the 21-arched Glenfinnan viaduct which overlooks Loch Shiel and the Jacobite monument. Considered by many to be the most scenic railway line in the world, we travel through a scenic landscape of mountains, steep-sided lochs, and heather moors. Spending a relaxing afternoon on board we sail through Loch Lochy then transit the tranquil, tree-lined Laggan Avenue to Loch Oich where we moor overnight at the top of the series of locks at Fort Augustus.

Day 5 - Fort Augustus - Loch Ness

This morning, we descend the Fort Augustus locks to Loch Ness, which takes its name from a fort built after the defeat of the 1715 Jacobite uprising, before setting sail along Loch Ness. Pausing briefly, for a view of the ruins of Urquhart Castle, we continue the 21 mile transit of Loch Ness and Loch Dochfour, and along the first man-made section of the Caledonian Canal to the cosmopolitan city of Inverness, where the farewell reception and dinner are held.

Day 6 - Inverness

After breakfast, we say farewell and disembark in Inverness.
