Skye and the Small Isles - Glen Etive

Barbara Riddell

The views of course were spectacular - waterfalls and rainbows galore - and we did see some wildlife too. The nice thing was if you didn't want to go ashore, it was cosy on board ship too. Again, thank you for your efficient organisation and a great trip. All the best,

Skye and the Small Isles - Glen Shiel

Jane Radford

My fourth consecutive cruise with a change of boat for me, the Glen Shiel, and crew, Neil, Mike, Robert and Martin, truly a dream team - fingers crossed for the same combination next year for my St Kilda trip! Sadly the weather was far from dreamlike, forcing us to change route but this didn't spoil our enjoyment. As always with the Majestic Line it became an adventure where everyone was treated to a unique and luxurious experience. Huge thanks to our Skipper and crew for that!

Robbie & Justine Jamieson

Just returned from the most amazing trip on the Glen Tarsan. Stunning scenery. Fabulous weather. Some of the nicest people you could ever meet. Cannot find fault with anything. Our crew, Dougie, Steve, Alan and chef extraordinaire Will....what can I say?....Perfection.

A Taste of the Hebrides - Glen Tarsan

Helen Willison

The crew Duggie, Steve, Will and Alan were all so kind and helpful, nothing too much trouble, happy to have a chat when they could and looking to keep us safe and comfortable. For once in my life I felt thoroughly spoilt! I loved going ashore for our walks to those isolated places and also having a laugh in the evening with the rest of the passengers watching 'The Vital Spark' ( My dad, as a scot in exile, used to watch it years ago) The passengers too were such a nice crowd of people, 2 Scots, 1 other English person, and 4 Americans, all so interesting to talk to and easy to get on with.

Around Mull : Wildlife Explorer - Glen Tarsan

Caroline Bradley

A wonderful week on Glen Tarsan. Full credit to the crew who made it a fun and relaxing experience, and to my fellow guests who were such good company. It goes without saying that the food, scenery, shore trips were all excellent. It's hard to pick a particular highlight but as a single traveller I really appreciate the fact that I paid the same as everyone else and got the same accommodation. Generally it is a matter of paying a lot more and getting the worst room/cabin! An ideal holiday for the single person. I will be back.

Mull and her Inlets and Islands - Glen Massan

Joe & Tetske Grzegorzewski

We were lucky to have some spectacular weather which made the views and scenery breath taking at times. Our departure from Oban couldn’t have started out any better, sunny and blue skies. A nice anniversary present for sure.

Private Charter 3 Nights - Glen Shiel

Alan & Barbara Turner

Our last leg through the islands to Oban was magical as we were so lucky with the weather. Thank you too for the birthday cake which was very thoughtful of you …..and it went down a treat too. As did the piper about which I knew nothing! The cabins were well furnished and were very welcome after a day’s excursion and several drinks in the evenings! All in all a wonderful way to celebrate Barbara’s 70th . In fact a brilliant way to celebrate life. Thanks to you and the crew and all at Majestic.

Mull and her Inlets and Islands - Glen Tarsan

Roger & Jacqueline Wilson

Now that we are finally back in Jersey we would like to thank you all for the Mull Inlets and Islets cruise the week before last. Unfortunately the weather didn't play ball but we had a great week nonetheless. The crew were superb and whilst not wishing to single out anyone in particular, special thanks to Will for feeding us so well. Captain Peter made the best itinerary he could, despite the wind and swell offshore, and found some really sheltered anchorages each night. Excursions were a bit damp some days and a new pair of waterproof trousers is on the shopping list, although this didn't spoil the enjoyment! As a group of passengers we really "gelled" and we made some good new acquaintances. It is so much better being in a small group. Having such a good week we wouldn't hesitate to recommend one of your cruises. We enjoyed it so much we have booked for next year!

We simply had the best time. The weather could have been a good deal better but that didn’t stop the enjoyment. Our fellow passengers were great fun and the crew were just brilliant in every way and clearly wanted us to have a trip to remember.

A Taste of the Hebrides - Glen Massan

Roger Stafford

As on our previous cruise, the 3 crew, the trip, and the accomodation were very good. As usual you have to be very close friends to get the best from the cabins!! On this cruise the catering and food were exceptional. Steph the chef produced some memorable meals--tailoring the menus to duck and dive around the various likes and dislikes of the 10 guests. How she managed in the shoe-box sized galley is a mystery to me. Steph is a talented and dedicated woman and a major asset to Majestic Line. Thank you Majestic Line you have restored my admiration for your Cruise line. Regards from Kate and Roger Stafford

Isles of the Southern Hebrides and Sea Lochs of Argyll - Glen Tarsan

Elaine Reid

We had a wonderful time cruising on the Glen Tarsan - every day was a bit of an adventure. Our crew - Steven, Alan, chef Will and skipper Paul - went above and beyond to make the trip memorable. We also had a lovely bunch of travelling companions who helped make our cruise so enjoyable. It was over all too soon - so much so, that we’ll be booking another cruise soon. Thank you to everyone at the Majestic Line for a great experience.

Isles of the Southern Hebrides and Sea Lochs of Argyll - Glen Tarsan

Flora McCallum

Hello, I wanted to write and say how much I enjoyed my second Majestic Line holiday. The attention to detail before ( eg the information, luggage labels, call about the bus replacement service) and during the trip ( eg spotless cabin, discussion of the route, help if needed in & out of the tender) make it so easy to relax. It is great to be able to observe from the bridge. We were given lovely places to go ashore - Oronsay and Gigha being my favourites. And it was magical to have a small pod of dolphins join us for a wee while; not sure who 'ordered' them. And as for the food - sublime. Will is a magician of a tiny galley. Again his attention to detail and adaptability were great. I don't think I'll eat a gf brownie for months because none would compare! With best regards, Flora McCallum.

A Taste of the Hebrides - Glen Shiel

Charline Evans

Cruising on the Majestic Line from Oban was a wondrous experience! From the exquisite food from Chef Mike and the fresh local ingredients from the Scottish Islands and Seas to the excitement of seeing local wildlife, basking seals and an array of birds to the amazing beauty of all the islands that we visited. The team of staff were a pleasure to cruise with, their dedication to duty, friendly and jovial spirit and their knowledge and pride of their heritage and environment was both engaging and inspiring. A wonderful experience with many tales to tell my friends and family around the globe. Thank you Majestic Line. Best wishes, Charline.

The cruise was everything you said it would be – we the passengers all got on well and had a lot of laughs (Barbara and I would have enjoyed a little more animation in the evening and we tried a couple of times to initiate activities with the others, but to no avail), the food was excellent and the crew great – welcoming, and willing to help in any way they could.

Idyllic Isles of the Outer Hebrides - Glen Etive

Dr Peter and Mrs Gillian Bruwer

Each crew member worked together so well and all readily helped one another. They were relaxed and happy with each other as well as with us, which made the cruise so happy and relaxed. We had 11 fabulous passengers who all got on like a house on fire, so together with them, the great crew, delicious homegrown and superbly cooked by Peter and your amazingly comfortable beds, plus your gorgeous ship The Glen Etive and all the beautiful parts of the Outer Hebrides which we visited , made it a fantastic 10 day cruise ! A real break away and so refreshing. We will tell all our friends about you and hopefully will join you for another cruise sometime. Thank you to all of you both ground crew and the sea crew , you are an incredible company. As we were getting off the ship we loved meeting the owner who told us he was coming to NZ in Jan 2020 , please tell him he is most welcome to come and stay.

First class in every respect. The crew were consistently friendly, efficient & attentive whether their tasks involved operating the tender, serving meals, tending bar, or many other duties. Meals were outstanding.

Isle of Skye and the Inner Hebrides - Glen Massan

Sue Mann

We were "the trip" that saw minke whale twice; once definitely curious about the boat and following us, plus then coming up both sides to look at us. Then the spectacular sight of a minke whale breaching, not just once but a number of times! Peter, the skipper was delighted and Marina squealed with joy which was delightful as it was such a natural reaction made special as she lives and works in the area yet also found this sight amazing.

From the piper who played my request on boarding (written my my late mum's cousin, PM J Robertson back in 1915), to the high standard of the accommodation, attentive and efficient crew, fabulous cuisine, fun company and enjoyable activities ashore, the cruise was everything I hoped it would be, and more. Roll on the next one. Thank you, Majestic Line.

Dear all at The Majestic Line, Just a quick line to thank you all and especially the crew of the Glen Tarsan, Robert, Claire, Ray and the very shy Gordon {only joking he is a great laugh as well as a great chef}. What a fantastic few days I enjoyed, The company was great and the catering exceptional. The weather did not matter. I had a grin on my face for a few days after departing. It was also nice to meet Andy Thoms on arrival back in Oban. All the hard work that has been put into renovating the Tarsan and Massan has paid off. The Glen Tarsan has a characterful feel. I have not stopped raving about the trip to all and sundry and have no hesitation in recommending your company. I will Definitely be booking again. Best regards to all, Nigel.
