Sail through the heart of the countryside

Explore Scotland as few people have on an enchanting voyage to the region’s highlights and some seldom-seen wildness. 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. Named 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. 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.

  • Sail the Caledonian Canal, which bisects the country, plus explore the beautiful outlying islands of the Inner Hebrides

  • Kayak Loch Linnhe, 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

  • Wave to the locals who turn out to watch Lord of the Glens descend Neptune's Staircase, a set of eight interconnected locks that the ship is perfectly sized to squeeze into
