Scotland Cruises

Boudicca in Ullapool
Boudicca in Ullapool

At the top of the UK, Scotland is a land of mountain wildernesses sprinkled with glacial glens and deep lochs. Despite its modest size, Scotland has an array of treasures squeezed in – bold skies, dramatic landscapes, extraordinary wildlife, a burgeoning local food culture and a refreshing, no-nonsense personality. Scotland’s haven of wildlife has birds of all shapes and sizes soaring above the sea stacks of the Highlands, seals basking along the shores of the Outer Hebrides, whales surfacing off the coast of Mull and ponies offering a friendly hello on Shetland.

Each corner of this land is steeped in the past. From the Neolithic remains of Skara Brae and Loch Linnhe’s spellbinding Duart Castle to the scarred battlefields of Bannockburn and Culloden, much of the nation’s history tells a tale of a struggle against the odds. Scottish museums like Dundee's Discovery Point, the Orkney Radio Museum and Glasgow's Kelvingrove all point to the huge influence the nation’s inventors, explorers and artists have had across the globe. Cultural experiences stretch from the poetry of Robert Burns to the swathe of contemporary bands and musicians who grace today’s music scene. Local heroes appreciated around the world every bit as much as the locally-produced tartans, tweeds and single malt whiskies. Add to that, the new-found respect for Scotland’s farm to fork approach to its cuisine: seafood, venison, organic veg etc. all freshly delivered and of the highest quality.

From the Trossachs to Fingal’s Cave, from Edinburgh’s Military Tattoo to the monsters of Loch Ness, Scotland’s captivating scenery, sprawling countryside, ancient historical sites and culture-rich cities are some of the most-visited and most-popular, not only on this Sceptred Isle, but across the entire world.
