Join your Scottish hosts, Colin and Pauline Taylor on a voyage of discovery through the Scottish islands. Departing from our base at Dunstaffnage Marina, by Oban, our 7-10 day cruises are suitable for individuals, couples, families and groups of up to 8 guests. Trips are purposely flexible to reflect guests' interests and, of course, the weather and tides.
We invite you to play an active part in the running of the yacht, getting involved in anything from passage planning and weather forecasting to helming and drying the dishes. But, if you just want to sit back and relax, we have a well-stocked library and lots of good vantage points on deck from which to enjoy the magnificent Scottish scenery and the abundant and diverse marine and birdlife!
Moonshadow is fully equipped to the highest standards, with an attention to detail and quality that ensures you will enjoy a memorable holiday. Her light and airy interior has a spacious saloon, warm air heating and en-suite guest cabins with hot showers.
All meals on board are freshly prepared in the galley from the finest of Scottish seasonal ingredients. We have a well stocked bar including a number of delicious malt whiskies for the mandatory dram when saluting the sunset!
As well as experiencing the thrill of sailing a big boat, daily trips ashore allow guests to stretch their legs and explore some of the beautiful Scottish coastline. From the dramatic peaks of the Cuillins on Skye to the seductive sandy white beaches of Iona and Tiree you are spoilt for choice. Scotland’s remarkable history and distinctive culture are also evident in the many castles and ruins that pepper the landscape and nowhere more so than on the St Kilda archipelago, one of the most breathtaking destinations possible on our longer trips.
For a sailing holiday experience that leaves you feeling relaxed, refreshed and invigorated, we look forward to welcoming you aboard.
