Get a sense of exploring Scotland by ship
Selected as a National Geographic Traveler magazine "Tour of a Lifetime" for its authenticity, immersion, sustainability, and connection, our Highlands and Islands expedition offers the most encompassing way to explore Scotland. The 48-guest Lord of the Glens is the only ship that allows you to:
The highlights and seldom-seen Scotland
The only expedition of its kind, you’ll explore Scotland as few people have on an enchanting Highland tour of Scotland. Purpose-built for these waters, our gracious ship, Lord of the Glens is able to fit through narrow canals and stepped locks in the heart of the country and also navigate among the islands and their small communities along the coast. The result is a panoramic voyage, a rare expedition that offers an immersive, in-depth experience at a comfortable pace.
Experience the sweep of history
You’ll walk among ancient stone monuments, weave your way through ruins of fantastic castles, and stroll through a sacred abbey. Learn the legacy of 1,300-year-old clans and visit the cemetery of Scottish monarchs. Experience the charm of modern Scotland through live music on board and a special visit to the tiny Isle of Eigg, home to about 90 souls.
Travel in excellent company
Explore under the sure guidance of a veteran Scotland tour expedition leader, a historian, and a naturalist. Their knowledge and passion for Scotland is the key to your once-in-a-lifetime experience.
