Get a sense of exploring Scotland by ship
Selected as a National Geographic Traveler magazine "Tour of a Lifetime" for its authenticity, immersion, sustainability, and connection, our Highlands and Islands expedition offers the most encompassing way to explore Scotland. The 48-guest Lord of the Glens is the only ship that allows you to:
- Sail through the heart of Scotland via the Caledonian Canal that bisects the country, plus explore remote and beautiful islands of the Inner Hebrides
- Kayak Loch Ness, see the storied battlefield of Culloden, beautiful Glenfinnan, the historic Isle of Iona, and the isles of Mull, Eigg, and Skye
- Travel to hauntingly beautiful moorlands, grand castles, sacred abbeys, and sweeping mountains.
The highlights and seldom-seen Scotland
The only expedition of its kind, you’ll explore Scotland as few people have on an enchanting Highland tour of Scotland. Purpose-built for these waters, our gracious ship, Lord of the Glens is able to fit through narrow canals and stepped locks in the heart of the country and also navigate among the islands and their small communities along the coast. The result is a panoramic voyage, a rare expedition that offers an immersive, in-depth experience at a comfortable pace. See what it’s like.
Experience the sweep of history
You’ll walk among ancient stone monuments, weave your way through ruins of fantastic castles, and stroll through a sacred abbey. Learn the legacy of 1,300-year-old clans and visit the cemetery of Scottish monarchs. Experience the charm of modern Scotland through live music on board and a special visit to the tiny Isle of Eigg, home to about 90 souls. Your cultural experiences.
