Journey with one of the world’s smallest cruise lines through the wild isles, lochs and canals of Scotland

#expeditioncruising .

One of the world’s smallest cruise lines, Lord of the Glens, which operates an elegant, boutique vessel of the same name inspired by the Royal Yacht Britannia, offers lovers of ‘slow travel’ an intimate journey through the wild and far-flung isles, lochs, canals and highlands of Scotland. And to help more Australians get onboard the classic, 52-guest Lord of the Glens, for the unique experience, Australian small ship cruising specialist, Cruise Traveller, is offering a saving of £200 British pounds per person for bookings made by September 6, 2024.

The tiny cruise line’s Lord of the Glens was purpose-built to explore the pristine and intricate waterways of the Scottish Highlands, including the historic Caledonian Canal, the famous, hauntingly deep waters of Loch Ness and Scotland’s many pristine islands and dramatic coastlines, dotted with castles and quaint, storybook hamlets.

Modelled on the elegance of the monarchy’s Royal Yacht Brittanica, the stylish Lord of the Glens boasts a rich, traditional ambience with polished wood, teak decks, personal service and gourmet dinners sourced from fresh Scottish produce. Fares include shore excursions and all cabins boast water views of Scotland’s ruggedly spectacular coastline.

Cruise Traveller is offering a trio of six-night cruises this October aboard Lord of the Glens from Oban to Inverness in Scotland or vice versa, The centrepiece of each of the identical journeys is a passage along the length of the historic, 100km-long Caledonian Canal which connects Scotland’s east and west coasts and takes guests through the Scottish Highlands via 29 lochs and four lakes including Loch Ness, home to the myth of ‘Nessie’, the monster.     

The route from Inverness to Oban heads down the Caledonian Canal, built in the 1820s, past the breathtaking ruins of 800-year-old Urquhart Castle and through Loch Ness and other brooding lakes that lie in the shadow of mighty Ben Nevis, Scotland’s highest peak. As a side tour, guests will take a train ride across the beautiful Glenfinnan Rail Viaduct which starred in the Harry Potter films. The journey takes in the tower house of Castle Stalker where the hit film, ‘Monty Python and the Holy Grail’, was filmed and heads to the Isle of Mull in the Inner Hebrides for visits to pretty towns and sacred sites important to past Scottish kingdoms.

Including shore touring, the six-night cruise aboard Lord of the Glens is available from £1980 British Pounds per person, twin-share – a saving of £100 British Pounds if booked by September 6, 2024.  Three sailings are available – October 6, 12 and 18, 2024. Fare based on the October 12 and 18 departures.   Flights from Australia are additional.
