A warm welcome awaits onboard Glen Etive

Let us take you on a voyage of discovery to the idyllic Outer Hebrides and spectacular Skye onboard Glen Etive. When we wanted to venture further afield to the remote chain of islands of the Outer Hebrides and the stunning coast of the North West Highlands, the idea for Glen Etive was born.  Unlike our first two sister ships, Glen Massan and Glen Tarsan, who were lovingly converted from traditional wooden fishing boats, Glen Etive is the first of our purpose-built steel-hulled ships finished in traditional wood and brass.
