Hebridean Island Cruises
This is not your average holiday cruise that’s for sure. A small and exclusive cruise with the personal touch – all feeling quite luxurious and as if you just stepped back in time into an Agatha Christie novel. Carrying just 50 guests, Hebridean Princess has an enviable reputation for exceptional service, fine food and wine and the very warm welcome extended by crew of 38!! That’s a whole lot of crew for 50 people! She has thirty spacious cabins, 10 designed especially for the single traveller. Running for 29 seasons, the company aims not just to sail you around, but actually share their local knowledge and passion with passengers, and introduce them to some of the most striking locations in Scotland. Romantic castles; tranquil, spectacular lochs; wide open spaces and seldom-visited anchorages. A selection of "Footloose" cruises caters for most walking abilities with a range of guided walks in the hills and mountains, seashores and lochs, with the promise of a nip of whisky and a hearty meal back on board. The experienced guides accompany every cruise and, on selected themed itineraries, knowledgeable guest speakers will share their passion for their subject. The cruises of between 4 and 10 nights depart mainly from Oban, sailing the waters of the western isles and beyond to far-flung St Kilda, Northern Ireland, Eire, Isle of Man, the Channel Islands, the Isles of Scilly, Northern France and even Belgium.
