Hebridean Island Cruises

Unique experiences for a few people. Exploring by sea is the best way to experience the beauty of Scotland. The Highlands & Islands, lochs and remote mainland areas are all accessible from the comfort of the luxurious Hebridean Princess and the intricate waterways of the Caledonian Canal and Great Glen from the newest addition to the fleet, Lord of the Highlands.

Hebridean Island Cruises has shared local knowledge with its guests for over 30 years and has introduced them to some of the loveliest and most remote places in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland. Romantic castles; tranquil, spectacular lochs; wide open spaces and seldom-seen vistas.

A selection of ‘Footloose’ cruises caters for most walking abilities with a range of guided walks, and the promise of a nip of whisky and a hearty meal back on board. Other themed itineraries include Food and Drink, History and Heritage, Gardens and Wildlife.

Why Travel with Hebridean Island Cruises?

Cruises of between four and ten nights depart mainly from Oban and the ships always carry well-informed local guide, plus, on selected cruises, a specially chosen Guest Speaker. Cruises of between 5 and 7 nights on board Lord of the Highlands depart mainly from Inverness or Kyle of Lochalsh.
