This unique tour combines a tour of the Highlands with a cruise of the Inner Hebrides. Your journey begins in Edinburgh where we board a bus for a tour of the Highlands visiting ancient castles and sites including Falkland Palace, the home of Mary Queen of Scots.
A highlight will be a two night stay on Orkney exploring this ancient island including visiting a 5000 year old village and Skaill House which was often visited by Captain James Cook before he set off on his voyages of discovery.
At the end of our land tour we board our Majestic Line ship in Oban and enjoy a 6 night cruise aboard a chartered traditional wooden fishing boat lovingly converted to provide a charming and spacious cruising accommodation with every comfort.
The coastline of the Hebrides is one of the most unspoiled and beautiful natural environments in the world with breathtaking scenery and a haven for wildlife ; our cruising area is around Mull, one of the most unspoiled and beautiful natural environments in the world, rich in history, culture and wildlife. Governor Lachlan Macquarie was born here and is where he is buried. We will visit his mausoleum which is maintained by the National Trust of Australia (NSW)
As this tour is limited to 10 people due to the number of cabins available on our cruise boat, it is recommended that you book early.
