A short, yet highly invigorating adventure, this five-night cruise is a snapshot of Scotland’s wonderfully diverse scenic landscapes. With Black Watch as your guide, you can discover the splendid vistas, charming postcard-perfect towns and historic sites of beautiful islands and lochs that will inspire and delight; and all in less than a week.

Visiting Greenock – ‘Gateway to the Lochs’ – puts you within reach of one of Scotland’s most famous and sought-after scenic sites, breathtaking Loch Lomond. Opt for a boat tour of Lomond – the largest expanse of freshwater in Great Britain – and the treasures of this natural wonder will be revealed; the 974-metre-high Ben Lomond mountain, the castle and monastery of Inchmurrin – the largest of Lomond’s 60 islands – and elegant Victorian houses all come into view.

A stop at charming Tobermory on the beautiful Isle of Mull presents you with one of Scotland’s most-photographed images; be sure to have your camera to hand to capture this picturesque town’s famously colourful harbour from your ship. Spending the day here also affords you opportunities to experience a boat cruise along the sublime Sound of Mull, renowned for its unspoilt scenery and wonderful wildlife including seals, dolphins and eagles; or head across the Sound on a tour to discover the 13th century Duart Castle. The rugged Orkney Islands await you too. During a call into Kirkwall you can immerse yourself in the Orkneys’ fascinating history at the UNESCO-listed, 5000-year-old Neolithic village of Skara Brae, or the ancient stone circles of Stenness and Brodgar; or even visit St Magnus, Britain’s northernmost cathedral.
