In 2020, Scotland celebrates its Coasts and Waters with a year-long programme of events and activities which will shine a spotlight on these vital elements of our landscape. In celebration we have developed the Land & Sea Tour for anyone who wants to experience the full glory of the West Highlands and Islands of Scotland.
Of old the region – with its myriad lochs, mountains, glens and islands – was best travelled by both land and sea. Many settlements and castles could only be accessed from the water.
We have therefore designed a combined land and sea tour of Argyll and the islands with our partners St Hilda Sea Adventures.
This eleven night tour takes you into the Highlands and along the West coast of Argyll, visiting (and staying in) castles, picturesque villages and enjoying the spectacular mountain scenery. Then we take ship along the majestic Sound of Mull, famous for its wildlife and bordered by the Isle of Mull and the Morvern Peninsula, and along historic Loch Linnhe. Our voyage will give you the full flavour of Scotland from the sea: its sheltered sea lochs, tranquil anchorages and picturesque habours. The mini cruise is a wonderful introduction to the breath-taking Hebrides and Islands.
Each tour is with a group small enough to access the best places to stay and the most interesting sites, but with a convivial feel. It is for a maximum of seven people, travelling in a nine seater minibus and then a comfortable motorised boat with an expert guide.
We offer exclusive driver-guided and personalised holidays throughout Scotland. Specialising in clan history and the traditional clan lands, working with a number of Clan Chiefs and castle owners. We have an intimate knowledge not just of the top tourist attractions, but also of the roads less travelled. We were also the first Scottish company to recognise the growing interest from Outlander fans and have been organising successful Outlander Tours for the past 13 years. We’re delighted by the number of clients who ask us to help them explore Scotland further, returning again and again.
