Explore the best of sailing in Scotland. Based from Mallaig we regularly visit the remote Outer Hebrides, Small Isles or Skye. On longer voyages, perhaps sail to the dramatic archipelago of St Kilda. This is a chance to enjoy a wilderness holiday like no other. Combine great walking, abundant bird and marine life or join us for a voyage of whisky appreciation, visiting local distilleries and sampling a wee dram!
Eda Frandsen was built in Denmark in 1938, starting life fishing for lobsters. She was rebuilt and refitted as a charter vessel between 1991-96 to combine her natural seaworthiness and reliability with romance and tradition. Beautifully kept and maintained, the level of craftsmanship and detail is first class, with original features and unique detail.
Whether on the open sea or relaxing in a secluded anchorage, this is a holiday like no other. We look forward to sailing with you.
