The coast, villages and countryside of the Eastern Algarve and then explore the treasures of this most westerly corner of Europe.
Cruising around the Scottish coast is the ideal way to visit this amazing diversity as we explore the otherwise remote parts, the islands, creeks and little visited places which make the Scottish islands the most varied in the world.
From the Orkney Islands to the Channel Islands, from Skye to Connemara, in the British Isles we’re never far from our amazing coast where there is so much good walking close to sandy beaches and hilly terrain.

In the British Isles we are never far from our amazing coast, yet few are familiar with more than summer holiday beaches. Roam around the British Isles with us and the diversity becomes apparent. Cruises which visit Scottish islands and ports are always popular. These remote outposts of the British Isles are both beautiful and often not straightforward to reach – a cruise makes their wild charms easily accessible. Sailing from Liverpool we have a day at sea as we head north through some magical Scottish seascapes to Kirkwall, the capital of the Orkney Islands. Black Watch now cruises between Skye and the Outer Hebrides to Mull where we drop anchor in the pretty bay overlooking Tobermory and walk to a waterfall and lilycovered lochs Entering the mouth of the River Clyde, we call in to Greenock which we use as a base to walk a section of the West Highland Way.
Short though this cruise is, the beauty and variety of the Scottish landscape so close to the sea means we will be able to undertake some very enjoyable walks, taking in peaks, coastal paths, remote beaches and historical sites. A cruise like this doesn’t come along every day! The BBC series ‘Coast ‘has undoubtedly opened our eyes to the wonders of our own coastline… now come and see it for yourselves!
