Footloose to Lochs and Isles Special Offer

Whether you enjoy a challenging walk or gentle stroll, this cruise offers choices in every port of call, all accompanied by experienced guides.

The small Isle of Eigg is perfect for walks off the beaten track, before scenic cruising through the Sound of Sleat and Kyle Rhea. From picturesque Shieldaig, avid walkers can explore the great wilderness surrounding Loch Torridon, while those who fancy a more gentle stroll can discover the pretty fishing villages and the sub-tropical oasis of Inverewe Garden.

Spend a full day at Kyle of Lochalsh, during which you can choose from a walk taking in the breathtaking scenery, or a visit to the iconic Eilean Donan Castle. Revel in the tranquillity of Plockton, wrapped around a sheltered bay in Loch Carron, before continuing to Loch Scavaig, your gateway to Loch Coruisk in the shadow of the Black Cuillin mountains.

Hebridean Princess cruises Loch Nevis to Inverie where the Old Forge Inn awaits. Continue to the sacred isle of Iona and take in the incredible Benedictine Abbey, or perhaps saunter to the Bay at the Back of the Ocean, before landing on traffic-free Ulva. Learn about the island's crofting past at Sheila's Cottage Museum. On the Isle of Mull, join our experienced walking guides for a day taking in the breathtaking scenery, or simply relax in the colourful capital of Tobermory and visit Duart Castle, an ancient Maclean stronghold.
