With the luxury of 10-nights at sea, many of the most remote Islands of the Outer Hebrides can be reached. Potential destinations with evocative names include Berneray, Mingulay, the Monach Isles, Taransay, and the Shiants. A highlight on this cruise is to witness the resident grey seal population come ashore on the beach on Mingulay for the night. They can be heard ‘singing’ during the evening - an unforgettable experience. The voyage may also call in at Barra, the Uists and Harris. On the outward and inward journey the voyage takes in some of the isles of the Inner Hebrides including Skye and the beautiful sea lochs of the remote west coast of the Scottish mainland, such as Knoydart, Ardnamurchan and  Morvern

There is a good chance of seeing much of the rare wildlife the Western Isles has to offer. Read a review of this cruise which often reports sightings of many cetaceans, eagles and other birdlife, while cruising through remarkable scenery and dropping anchor in the most idyllic locations.

Hi Emma - We just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our cruise (8th -18th August, 2022).  Elizabeth G is a beautifully maintained, classic boat and we felt very safe at all times in the capable and experienced hands of her skipper Chris.  Chef Sarah & Bosun Zara fed us so well and nothing was too much trouble when looking after us and all our fellow guests. We also managed, with Lynsey’s help, to learn a lot that we didn’t know before about Scottish wildlife. Overall it was a brilliant experience that we would recommend highly to anyone. Please pass on our many thanks to all of the crew. Warmest wishes, Lorna & Philip Hall.

Lynsey was amazing at spotting dolphins from really far off and knowledgeable about walks.  The menu was excellent and Sarah was a very good cook, I have got some of her recipes. Zara was very enthusiastic and always helpful and obliging and worked hard to please.

Amazing time! The crew went the extra mile, despite indifferent weather. Sightings of dolphins (one pod of over 200 !), whales, porpoise, golden and white tailed eagles, otters...... and so much more!. Amazing waterfalls and coastlines, tranquil bays for calm night’s sleep after wonderful food and excellent wine.... topped off by good company and excellent guiding.

Emma was very prompt informing us of a cancellation which enabled us to do the Far-flung Islands Cruise.  All very friendly, informal  and helpful.  Delighted to be taken to 2 of my most favourite anchorages ever, Rona and Loch Scavaig! And wonderful to discover others to compete. Scenery is stunning whatever the weather. Onshore trips were well planned and balanced according to the capacity of clients. I enjoyed freedom at times. Crew local knowledge is what makes these trips so special…knowing where to find the wildlife and where to shelter when necessary is fundamental.  Well done! Recent alterations on Elizabeth G are brilliant.  Go for it!

Emma - Just a word to say how much we enjoyed our cruise on Emma Jane. The staff on board were all excellent and made the whole experience quite memorable in their own ways. The cruise itinerary was very good and and we achieved most of our wish list! Wild life spotting was good fun and very rewarding. Catering was to very high standard and helped make every day a pleasure. Finally, crew were superb, operating at very high standards throughout, working very well with the passengers.  Sandy Tosh.

Dear Emma - I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our holiday. Our hope was that we would visit some of the more remote and inaccessible islands of the Outer Hebrides, and you certainly achieved that. We visited 11 islands in our 10 day trip and of the 2 where we had been before we saw parts not previously explored so were delighted.  The crew were professional and attentive. Chris, Craig and Nigel have lots of trips under their belts. Our chef Lulu was a superb cook and a delight. Her enthusiasm was magnetic. Nigel was very happy to share some helpful photography tips and lessons for those of us who wanted to use the opportunity to expand our photography skills. Composition and use of the camera functions were explained and were eagerly applied and the resultant photos perhaps a little better than might otherwise have been achieved by the keen pupils, but still a long way short of Nigel's inspiring images.  We came to see more islands, we achieved that in spades. We also had great fun, walked and hiked miles, saw some amazing sights and landscapes. Watched wildlife in action, learned to recognise the wildlife we saw, developed  a healthy respect for the sea, had a sense of awe at the remoteness and resourcefulness of the far flung communities.  Altogether we came away with a refreshing outlook on life and warm memories shared with 12 fellow shipmates that is hard to believe 10 days previously had never met each other.  Wishing you every success for what is left of this season and next and the forthcoming awards on 22nd November.

All dealings with Emma in the office have been courteous and professional but also friendly and efficient.  Pefect.  The accommodation was above our expectations, the food was pefect and amazing (Thank you for our anniversary cake)!  Book this amazing experience you will not be disappointed.  Hebrides Cruises are a great company to deal with and the Scottish Island will never let you down!
