Experience Scotland as few others have on what National Geographic Traveler magazine named a “Tour of a Lifetime.” Sail on waterways through the heart of the Highlands aboard Lord of the Glens, an intimate ship purpose-built for this journey, and navigate the coastal Hebrides islands, calling on villages seldom seen by outside travelers. Discover ancient landmarks and wild places while fully immersed in the lore, history, and warmth of this fabled region.

Sail to the heart of the Highlands and explore wild outer isles

Lord of the Glens was built for one purpose—to fit through the network of locks, lochs, and waterways that make up the Caledonian Canal, which cuts through the very heart of the Scottish Highlands connecting the North Sea to the Atlantic Ocean. Add to that her ability to navigate the coastline and venture to the islands of the Inner Hebrides and you have the basis for a singularly unique and striking expedition.

Life aboard Lord of the Glens feels like a cross between relaxing in a stately country manor and taking a voyage aboard a private yacht with friends. It is the perfect way to explore the Scottish countryside. She is paneled in polished wood, with teak decks, offering gourmet cuisine, and exceptional personal service.
