Cruise the Inner Hebrides, with stunning views of the Small Isles, before heading up the west coast of Skye to the Outer Hebrides and the Sound of Harris. Here is a spectacular mix of small islands and beautiful coastlines, fringed with shell-sand beaches and turquoise waters.  We island-hop to idyllic Scarp and Taransay, opposite famed Luskentyre Beach. These are remote and pristine islands, home to red deer, golden and sea eagles, seal colonies and a host of seabirds. We overnight in rarely-visited loch Reasort or Loch Tiallasbheag, so remote there is no road access.  Heading out into the Atlantic, we reach the mysterious Flannan Isles, home only to nesting seabirds, including puffins, storm petrels, Leach's petrels, kittiwakes and gannets. Weather permitting, we land on Eilean Mor with its famous lighthouse, visiting the Great Cave. Minke and pilot whales as well as Risso's and other species of dolphin are commonly observed in the vicinity. It is a quick hop across to the Isle of Lewis to access 5,000 years of history from the sea – the best way to visit the famous Callanish Stones. Your vessel then takes its leave of the Outer Hebrides, with stopovers en route to Oban depending on wind direction and the wishes of guests.

Dear Emma, Just to say what a wonderful cruise we had! We found it excellent in every way. The weather was trying but only some of the time. Rob devised such a very good route with wonderful anchorages, and we made it to the Flannan Isles, the highlight I suppose.  It was so good to be with such diverse fellow guests, and we had enormous admiration for all the crew members; they seemed so wonderfully cohesive and versatile in all they did for us. Bumble never ceased to produce wonderful meals; Craig turned from his anchor to cabin duties with amazing good will and skill, while Zoe had excellent recall on birds and was an attentive companion on shore, a really fine wildlife spotter.  We had the added excitement of rescuing the yacht in trouble off Tobermory in which Rob applied all his skill and experience. Please pass on our gratitude to Rob in due course.

First class all the way, food (including vegetarian) well catered, knowledgeable staff never short of information and practical help, never been so “looked after”.  Yes book it.  For us it was a lot of money compared to our usual trips but it was well worth it.  We know the Western Isles pretty well but were taken to many new places and Kathryn had never really been on a ship before.

Dear Emma - Firstly, let me say a huge thank you to Rob, Craig, Bumble and Zoë for the wonderful way they made us feel so welcome and at home on Elizabeth G. Thanks too to Elizabeth G for being such a safe and reliable vessel. We wish the weather had been kinder but we always were able to take advantage of the trips ashore and saw some superb woldlife.  We really enjoyed Bumble's great cooking and Zoë's excellent wildlife knowledge. Craig was amazing in the way he switched roles seamlessly and helped with the trips ashore. Rob's seamanship and experience was greatly admired and no more so than the day he responded to the Mayday call.  He was also great to chat to and kept us amused in the wheelhouse on long wet passages with tales of colourful characters from his decades of association with the sea.  It was an amazing experience - thank you.

Considering this booking had been postponed from 2020 due to Covid, everything was as efficient as usual – thanks Emma!  Couldn’t have done better and huge thanks to Rob, Craig, Zoe and Bumble for all they did to care for  us throughout. Meals were amazing considering the  size of the kitchen and the weather  and Rob always made sure that we knew what was on the agenda each day.

Fabulous !I will be honest and admit that I hadn’t even heard of the Flannan Isles until I booked this cruise, so some speedy reading was called for!  I’m please I did, for that little knowledge created an aura about the place, and when we were lucky enough (thanks to James !) to actually step ashore, then the highlight of my cruise was instantly created. Then, cruising across to visit the plethora of gannet further added to the Flannan experience, a fabulous place !  That is not to say it was the only highlight – the standing stones at Callanish were another highlight, and being able to anchor within sight of the stones just added to the experience.  Those were my own personal highlights, but Eigg and The Shiants were also amazing places.  St Kilda was always my dream island to visit, and I managed that on a previous cruise with you, but I must say, I think this cruise actually surpassed that one – what more can I say !  The crew were simply fabulous.  Helen kept the accommodation spotless throughout, catered for our every need, Emma provided wonderful meals, Will was a true action man, pointing out wildlife, lifting anchors, fastening ropes precariously on Flannan, and of course, James was ever the perfect skipper.  Each and every one of the crew were brilliant to share the cruise with, so friendly, so keen to provide absolutely anything that anyone wanted.

A fabulous trip, we visited remote islands, saw lots of wildlife, ate wonderful food and had a lot of fun. James, Will, Emma & Helen did everything possible to make our trip memorable. We have already booked to come back in 2022.

Understatement to say that we had a wonderful time. The fabulous weather helped but it would have been superb regardless. We saw almost everything on the list (James and Will have an uncanny ability to spot cetaceans a long way off - radio control was suggested!) and appreciated the way the itinerary was kept flexible to allow for the changing swell conditions. Emma and Helen looked after us extremely well - fabulous food and service. A really professional and friendly crew! The other passengers were interesting and good fun. Brilliant ... we'll be back for sure.
