This seven night voyage on board the deluxe ‘Lord of the Glens’ encompasses the main highlights of a voyage through the very heart of the Scottish Highlands introducing the interested traveller to the intricate and endlessly fascinating inland waters of the Caledonian Canal, the glistening waters of Loch Linnhe, the Sound of Mull, the Sound of Sleat and finally to Kyle Rhea with calls at Inverness, Fort Augustus, Laggan, Corpach (Fort William), Craignure (Isle of Mull), Iona, Tobermory, Isle of Eigg, Armadale on the Isle of Skye as well as Loch Nevis for remote Inverie before ‘voyage end’ at Kyle of Lochalsh.

The arrangement will appeal to those seeking great natural beauty, excellent cuisine as well as sumptuous accommodation. The tariff provides for a full Scottish breakfast, luncheon and a splendid dinner.  At most ports of call there is something to interest and fascinate the weary traveller, but alternatively you are free simply to escape, perhaps read a book and sip a glass of wine as the glories of the landscape slip by.

Lord of the Glens

Vessel Type: Luxury Small Ship

Length: 46 metres

Passenger Capacity: 48

Built: 1985

Until recently, size-limiting locks prevented travelers from seeing the Highlands from the remarkable vantage point of the inland waterway that links Scotland's most famous lochs. Now, with the style of a classic luxury yacht, the 48-guest Lord of the Glens journeys through this spectacular countryside in spectacular style. 

The moment you step aboard the Lord of the Glens you are surrounded by the rich mahogany finishes of the reception area and lobby. The ship is magnificently appointed and brings to mind that one is in a stately country manor rather than a five-star ship.

Cabins: Cabins are tasteful, comfortable and spacious with wonderful outside views. Most cabins have large picture windows (four have two large portholes). Facilities include a private bathroom with shower, individually controlled air-conditioning and heating, satellite television, music system, hairdryer, telephone, safety deposit box, bathrobes and toiletries. 

Public Areas: With all round teak decks, hardwood finished interiors and fine fabrics, the Lord of the Glens offers a stylish and relaxing ambience. The two lounges and two open-air viewing areas are social hubs aboard shop, and the small library and cozy bar are a refuge for the more solitary.

Meals: Served in the elegant single-seating Dining Room. Chefs create healthy, delicious cuisine served by an attentive staff.

Some deck plans vary, please check for detials.
