Sailing the Scottish lochs on Fred. Olsen’s smaller ships is the best way to experience their beauty and tranquillity, and as you explore this astonishing part of the world you’ll create memories that last a lifetime. From Black Watch, witness the majesty of mighty Ben Nevis – Britain’s highest mountain – while cruising Loch Linnhe; the twin-topped ridge of Beinn Ghobhlach, towering over the pretty shores of Little Loch Broom; and the Loch Eriboll’s unspoilt highland scenery. You’ll also see the intriguing Dutchman’s Cap and hear the echo of Atlantic Ocean waves crashing against Fingal’s Cave’s remarkable basalt columns.[ReadMoreMob]

Throughout your journey, memorable experiences await you ashore too. Your call into Fort William could coincide with the annual Lochaber Highland Games, and you may have the chance to locals during the celebrations of traditional highland competition, dancing and entertainment. Meanwhile, there are many famous sites of rich history and ancient legends to uncover. You could visit the 18th century Inveraray Castle from Tarbert, situated in beautiful Loch Fyne; take in Orkney’s UNESCO-listed Neolithic treasures on tour from Kirkwall; and explore the pretty grounds of Lews Castle on the Isle of Lewis. You’ve also a chance to delight in the gorgeous, rugged scenery of the Shetlands, famed for rugged landscapes and charming wildlife.
