Scottish Islands - Experience the unique magic, mystery and rich diversity

Scottish Islands

The wildly beautiful coast of Scotland is scattered with hundreds of islands and islets shaped by the relentless pounding sea and the ever-changing weather. Sublimely secluded, all are unique, forming a world apart that is little-known and accessible to the very few - yours to explore from the comfort of our delightfully small ship, Hebridean Princess. Experience their magic and mystery; revel in their rich diversity from the Firth of Clyde to the Inner and Outer Hebrides. Come and discover these precious island gems.

The summer schedule will see Hebridean Princess venture to the south coast of England, including the isles of Scilly on the Cornish coast and the Channel Islands. Some of the islands are so off the beaten track that no landing place is available. Hebridean Cruises will use their special beach landing craft for an exciting chance to wander an uninhabited island or headland. 

The effects of the Gulf Stream bring a warmth and a fertility to this region that make it quite unlike any other in the British Isles and strong connections in this remote corner of the kingdom enable Hebridean Island Cruises to arrange visits to privately owned castles and gardens.

Outer Hebrides

The Outer Hebrides, also know as the Western Isles, is a chain of islands off the West Coast of Scotland. From the isle of Lewis in the North to Vatersay in the South, the Outer Hebrides offer a range of islands to discover on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean. 

Inner Herbrides

The Inner Hebrides is a large group of islands located between the Outer Hebrides and mainland Scotland. Discover the stunning landscapes, historic castles and cultural heritage of these unspoiled islands. 

Northern Isles

The Northern Isles are a chain of islands off the North Coast of mainland Scotland. Discover rugged coastlines, facinating wildlife and unspoilt landscapes that Shetland and Orkney have to offer. 

Firth of Clyde Islands

Firth of Clyde Islands are situated in the Firth between the regions of Ayrshire and Argyll. Discover the distinctive landscapes, facinating wildlife and sweeping sandy bays that these islands have to offer.

The summer schedule will see Hebridean Princess venure to the south coast of England, including the Isles of Scilly and the Channel Islands. 



Unlike most cruise ships, a Hebridean Princess cruise includes all shore visits. From Cultural to historical, serious walking and biking to simply strolling around the bay, the opportunities the peace are endless. 

On most days Hebridean Princess berths or anchors in deifferent locations both morning and afternoon, whilst the ship's tenders are on hand to operate a shittle service ashore. Should you choose to wander at will, the samll boats are always available to transport you back on board is the yearning for a glass of somehing or chef's afternoon tea prove too hard to resist. 

Small numbers and common interests ensure that visits ashore are fascinating, informative and hugely enjoyable.
