Travel

Our 6-night and 10-night cruises depart on a Saturday from Oban in Argyll on West Coast of Scotland. For our one-way October cruises to Loch Ness and the Caledonian Canal from Oban and Loch Ness, and our one-way April cruise from Holy Loch to Oban, please contact the office to discuss travel arrangements. Our 3-night cruises depart on a Saturday and a Tuesday from Oban.

Boarding

It is not possible to board the vessel before the boarding time as the boat is still being made ready for our guests. We therefore make provision in local venues where guests who arrive early can leave luggage or relax with complimentary tea and coffee until boarding time when our crew come and fetch them. All our cruises board at 4pm. The boat normally sets off about an hour after boarding. Several weeks before their cruise, guests receive detailed joining instructions to ensure their arrival is as smooth as possible.

Disembarking

All cruises disembark at 11am on the last day of the cruise.
