The Firth of Clyde is sheltered from the Atlantic by the Kintyre peninsula, and the Firth's many lochs extend deep into the breathtaking Highlands. This cruise is the perfect way to explore this stunning area.

Visit Victorian Mount Stuart House on the Isle of Bute, Brodick Castle on the Isle of Arran and the beautiful gardens of Ardkinglas House. Sir Charles and Lady MacLean will give a private tour of magnificent Strachur House and there is an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of Inverary Castle’s private apartments.

Learn about the history of whisky at Springbank Distillery then cruise past the dramatic sea cliffs at Ailsa Craig before heading to the superb scenery of Holy Isle and Great Cumbrae, home to the smallest cathedral in Britain.
