Footloose to the Atlantic Isles Special Offer

This specialist voyage has a focus on walks ashore and is perfect for avid hikers as well as those who prefer a more leisurely stroll.

Hebridean Princess crosses the Sea of Hebrides to South Uist for a guided tour by foot or on coach, taking in the breathtaking scenery of this walker's paradise. Continue to the beautiful island of Barra for walks ashore or opt for the tour which takes in the unique beach airport at Traigh Mhor and medieval Kisimul Castle.

Tiree is perfect for walking, but you can choose a more leisurely pace and head to the Skerryvore Lighthouse, a feat of engineering. On picturesque Colonsay, Colonsay House Gardens are perfect for strollers, while the avid walkers can head for the beautiful white sands of Kiloran Bay.

Step ashore on the west coast of Jura at Loch Tarbert and explore this uninhabited part of the island. On neighbouring Islay, enjoy a visit to the Lord of the Isles at Finlaggen and taste a wee dram at Kilchoman distillery. Continue to Tayvallich where keen walkers can join the all day walk from Tayvallich to Crinan, or simply explore the pretty fishing village of Tayvallich itself, followed by bicycle rides or strolls along the Crinan Canal.
