Skippered Sailing Holidays in Scotland

Cruise around Scotland’s wonderful seascapes and discover long secluded sea lochs, dramatic mountains, endless sandy beaches, ever changing light and amazing wildlife. Enjoy short breaks, or a longer spell on board, experience the thrill of sailing, delicious cuisine with a focus on fresh shellfish and find time to relax and unwind away from the stresses of modern day life.

Our Skippered cruises run from April to October from ports and marinas in the Clyde, Mid Argyll, Oban, Mallaig and Gairloch.  Cruise dates are below but itineraries can be altered to suit guests’ requirements and could include magical places such as-

*Fingal’s cave, made famous by Mendelsons “Hebridean Overture”

*Sandaig, where Gavin Maxwell lived and was the author of “Ring of Bright Water”

*Balfours Bay, the temporary home of Robert Louis Stevenson which inspired him to write the classic novel “Kidnapped”

*Shark factory at the South end of Skye, subject of the book “Harpoon at a Venture” by Gavin Maxwell

*Eilean Donan Castle used for films, “Highlander”and “The World is not Enough”

Bluebird is an American built “J Boat” and has comfortable accommodation for up to five guests in quarters comprising two double cabins, (one en suite) and the main saloon which has two single berths. The yacht has a bright, cosy interior and is a fast cruiser, exciting to sail. Guests can choose to get involved in the day to day running of the yacht, helming, navigating, sail handling, or simply sit back and enjoy the stunning scenery. The cuisine aboard is a key feature- come sailing with us and enjoy superb healthy breakfasts, wonderful seafood lunches and delightful evening meals-using the best of Scotland’s fresh larder.
