Our new vessel, The Glen Etive will be cruising new, exciting and longer itineraries for 2016 with each cruise offering no less than a choice of 16 islands to visit. The "Idyllic Isles of the Outer Hebrides" 10-night cruise will take you to the very edge of the Atlantic Ocean to visit rugged and mysterious islands, with evocative names such as Mingulay, the Monachs and the Shiants, which are populated only by thousands of seabirds and surrounded by crystal clear waters, home to whales, dolphins and basking sharks.
Many of the other islands of the Hebrides that we visit are fertile with vibrant communities including the Isles of Coll, Vatersay, Barra, Eriskay and the Uists. Some islands have truly tiny communities such as the group known as the “Small Isles” but with a warmth and welcome that belies their size. The larger islands of Harris, Skye and Mull provide sheltered anchorages, iconic castles and bustling townships against a backdrop of dramatic mountain ranges.
Throughout the entire cruise the scenery is breathtaking with huge skies and green seas providing a striking backdrop to white shell-sand beaches and the jagged crags of the unspoiled and enchanting islands of the Hebrides.
