About

Recommended for:
No-fly | Ocean cruise

Explore the Inner and Outer Hebrides and Scotland's remote west coast on this no-fly cruise, which charts the legend of Bonnie Prince Charlie. It's the perfect blend of Scottish heritage and off-the-beaten-track beauty, as between historic ports, romantic castles, gold-sand beaches and unblemished wilderness, you'll experience the very best of Scotland's northwest coast. It's all enjoyed alongside the onboard comforts of the Hebridean Princess, whose dedicated crew, fine Scottish food and spacious, well-appointed cabins, will guarantee a journey to remember. 

Day by day itinerary

Day 1
Oban

Make your way to Oban, a small port town on the Scottish coast to the east of Loch Lomond, where you'll embark the Hebridean Princess. Settle into your cabin, before stepping out on deck to appreciate the beauty of the scenery – sparkling seas framed by highland peaks. Then, as evening arrives, you'll head to the restaurant for the first of your included dinner, a Scottish feast inspired by local produce.

Stay: Hebridean Princess

Meals: D

Day 2
Glenuig Bay

Today's leg sees you around Ardnamurchan, the most westerly point of the British mainland, as you make your leisurely way to Glenuig to view the Glenfinnan Monument, the very spot where Bonnie Prince Charlie raised his standard to gather the Jacobite Clans.

Stay: Hebridean Princess

Meals: B L D

Day 3
Portree, Raasay Island

Heading across the sea to Skye, you'll enjoy a tour of the Trotternish Peninsula where you'll visit the Museum of Island Life and Flora MacDonald’s memorial. Then, arriving in Portree on the island of Raasay, located between Skye and the mainland, you'll join your expert guide who'll introduce you to historic Rasaay House – now a luxury hotel – and the Raasay Distillery which, having opened as recently as 2017, is the island's first and only producer of single malt Scotch whiskey.

Stay: Hebridean Princess

Meals: B L D

Day 4
Stornoway, Isle Of Lewis

Your voyage continues as you arrive in Lewis, the largest and most northerly of the Hebrides. The landscape here is wonderfully wild and very often windswept, a fact perhaps best showcased at the Butt of Lewis, a rocky headland frequently battered by the heavy north-Atlantic swell. You'll have the chance to take in its dramatic viewpoints in the company of your guide, before heading, via the 13th-century St Moluag's church, to Lewis's other great treasure – the Callanish Stones. Similar to Stone Henge, these standing stones were erected in a cruciform pattern some 5,000 years ago during the late Neolithic period.

Stay: Hebridean Princess

Meals: B L D

Day 5
East Loch Tarbert

The next port of call is neighbouring Harris, the other half of the island known collectively as Lewis and Harris. Here, sweeping sandy bays and a verdant, mountainous interior create an idyllic backdrop for the creation of that world-famous Harris tweed, which you'll have the chance to see in production at a tweed weaving demonstration. Then, back on board, it's time to relax you take in the beauty of the Outer Hebrides from the comfort of the ship.

Stay: Hebridean Princess

Meals: B L D

Day 6
Loch Boisdale, South Uist Island

Spend today hopping between the ports of North and South Uist, which are linked by causeways running via Benbecula and Grimsay. A paradise for walkers, these tranquil islands abound in geological and historical treasures, with the low-lying bird haven of North Uist, scattered with green-blue lochans, contrasting with the traditionally Catholic and Gaelic stronghold of South Uist, whose softer, undulating landscape is carpeted in flower-decked machair and fringed by rolling dunes.

Stay: Hebridean Princess

Meals: B L D

Day 7
Tobermory

Fringed by 300 miles of picture-perfect coastline, the island of Mull provides a truly spectacular final port on your Hebridean cruise. Colourful Georgian-fronted Tobermory is the capital and Craignure the main port, south-east of which lies the ancient Duart Castle, seat of the Macleans, all of which you'll take in on a guided island tour, before a champagne reception brings your adventure to a fitting close.

Stay: Hebridean Princess

Meals: B L D

Day 8
Oban

Arriving back into Oban, there's time for one last delicious breakfast before you Disembark to begin your journey home.
