Hebredean adventures and wildlife spectacular. With so much to discover in the Isles, why limit yourself to the shore? Get more adventurous this year and and grab a berth on Bessie Ellen, this magnificent fully crewed historic sailing ship for a hands on sailing experience and memories to last a lifetime. With 12 comfortable berths you can join as individuals, couples or groups of up to 12. No experience of sailing is necessary.
Join me, Nikki onboard and whatever your passion for Scotland, be it remote landscapes, walking adventures, wildlife or whisky and song, on board Bessie Ellen you can experience it all. From our base and departure point in Oban we set sail and set out to sea either west towards Colonsay, Jura and Iona or to the north where the majestic Cuillins beckon under moody skies. Dolphins play under the bow wave, as we sail by steep cliffs of nesting birds. Kittiwakes, Puffins and Razorbills are at home here and both Golden Eagles and Sea Eagles can be sited on most voyages. Anchor in a remote bay in the company of grey seals, take a brisk walk ashore whilst our chefs prepare the days catch of fresh mussels ,crab and many other local ingredients into sumptuous meal on board.
Bessie Ellen was built in Plymouth as a cargo vessel back in 1904 and this year 110 years after her launch we have planned a unique programme of voyages . From short two night cruises to longer 10 day trips to the Outer Hebrides and Faroes, our little ship will lend us memories to last forever.
