Itinerary

Day 1 Belfast, Northern Ireland

You will board the 4* Boudicca at the Belfast port to begin your journey full of incredible sights and scenic backdrops, that only Scotland can offer.

Day 2 Cruising Loch Fyne

Connected to the Sound of Jura, Loch Fyne is the longest of the sea lochs, extending 40 miles inland from the Sound of Bute. Lending its name to the chain of countrywide restaurants, its reputation for oyster fishing is well-known.

Day 2 Tarbert, Loch Fyne

Known as the gateway to Kintyre in the south-west of Argyll, this idyllic Scottish village is full of charming houses and pubs welcoming you into the once entirely natural harbour – one of very few in Scotland.

Day 3 Pass through Corran Narrows

Pass through the Corran Narrows – the narrowest point of Loch Linnhe – en route to Fort William.

Day 3 Cruising Loch Linnhe

Flanked by rolling hills, magnificent mountains and rugged woodland, Loch Linnhe offers incredible views, anytime of the day, anytime of the year.

Day 3 Fort William, Scotland

Known as the ‘Outdoor Capital of the UK’, beautiful Fort William is one of Scotland’s most popular destinations and is the second largest settlement in the breathtaking Scottish Highlands

Day 4 Cruising Loch Shieldaig, Scotland

Branching off of the beautiful Loch Torridon, this beautiful loch leads to the charming village of Shieldaig – one of Scotland’s most picturesque villages – and is lined by epic mountain ranges, dense woodlands and rocky cliffs.

Day 4 Cruising Loch Torridon, Scotland

Slicing through the rugged landscapes of the Northwest Highlands, Loch Torridon is a stunning sea loch surrounded by pretty villages and breathtaking picture-perfect scenery.

Day 4 Cruising Sound of Raasay

This idyllic stretch of water divides the picturesque islands of Raasay and Skye and – while it narrows to just under half a mile wide in some places – is one of Britain’s deepest channels

Day 4 Portree, Isle of Skye

Set within a natural harbour and surrounded by rocky cliffs and rolling hills, Portree – the Isle of Skye’s main town – is a truly beautiful place to explore. Not only is Portree the Isle of Skye’s main town, it’s also the island’s most popular tourist destination, thanks to its attractive coastline, pretty working harbour and interesting attractions, including the Aros Centre and the An Tuireann Arts Centre which celebrate the island’s Gaelic heritage. The town also serves as a gateway other attractions on the island, including the intriguing rock formations at Trotternish Ridge – which can be found north of Portree – and the ruins of Tusdale.
