As April arrives and spring is blooming, our four small ships get ready for a new season. The refreshing sea air and stunning scenery in the West coast of Scotland will not only help revive your spirits, an April cruise will shake off the lethargy of winter while you enjoy delicious food and impeccable service. Here are five more reasons to cruise on the Clyde with us in April!
- The Clyde was our original cruising ground – this was our first cruising area, so we know all the best anchorages and places to visit.
