What to expect?

The Sounds of the Hebrides

On some of our Hebridean cruises we look at nature through the eyes of a marine biologist and even get out the plankton nets and microscopes! Do as little or as much as you want: sit back and enjoy the trip as you travel through the Sounds and sea lochs; view the spectacular mountains and fast running tides that make extraordinary spiral patterns and glassy runs in the sea; marvel at the headland lighthouses and castles and all the wildlife and, if you want, become involved in working the small ships.

The sheltered waters are perfect for learning to sail against a spectacular backdrop of pristine coastline, mountains and forests. For extra fun, bring your kayak and windsurfer, swim from the boat or go ashore on remote islands to explore. Also don't forget your walking boots for spectacular island walks with wonderful views of the Sounds!

What a fantastic fortnight aboard the St Hilda during our trip to the Outer Hebrides! The wildlife was wonderful, porpoises playing in just in front of the bow of the boat as we left Vatersay bay and watching Guillemots diving. A good opportunity to practise our navigation as we headed down to Sandray, Pabbay and Mingulay via the Fisherman's gap. We enjoyed our time ashore, catching the post bus (a first for us) down to Eriskay where they filmed Whisky Galore! Lots of delicious meals served in ever changing spectacular settings. Thank you, Colette and Michael for a wonderful holiday! Sylvie, Alex & Ruby
