Lord of the Glens is a spectacularly unique ship. She was built for one purpose—to fit through the network of locks and canals that cut through the heart of the Scottish highlands. So, she is the only ship of her kind that is able to offer a voyage through the Caledonian Canal, which connects the North Sea to the Atlantic and goes through the very heart of the Scottish Highlands. Add to that her ability to navigate the coastline and venture to the islands of the Inner Hebrides and you have the basis for a singularly unique and striking expedition.
Life aboard Lord of the Glens feels like a cross between relaxing in a stately country manor and taking a voyage aboard a private yacht with friends. It is the perfect way to explore the Scottish countryside. She is paneled in polished wood, with teak decks, offering gourmet cuisine, and exceptional personal service.
Lord of the Glens is small enough to come alongside daily in charming locations and to moor overnight in small welcoming communities such as the fishing village of Inverie which, although on the Scottish mainland, has no access by road with any other community in Scotland.
The ship is outfitted with bicycles and even kayaks on Lindblad-National Geographic expeditions, allowing guests to pedal into these small towns and explore the countryside at a leisurely pace, or have a unique opportunity to kayak in Loch Ness.
