Between the Isle of Skye and the Scottish mainland is the sheltered Inner Sound offering a captivating exploration of seascape and coastline. This unique cruise itinerary, specifically designed by owner and Skipper Rob Barlow, is the best way to experience the serenity of the Isle of Skye, off the tourist trail, visiting fascinating features of the area, best accessed from the sea.  Contrasting shore trips range from cathedral-like caves and shell-sand beaches; idyllic small islands and magnificent sea lochs to tranquil inlets and abandoned townships. Many species of wildlife inhabit these waters with eagles, otters, dolphins and whales frequently spotted. Potential stopovers on the Isle of Skye include Elgol; the Spar Cave on the shores of Loch Slappin, and Isle Ornsay.  In the Inner Sound, the uninhabited Crowlin Islands, the geological wonder of the Isle of Raasay and the picturesque Isle of Rona all offer shore visits. The scenery is outstanding, with the backdrop of the ever present panorama of the Cuillin mountain range to the west and Torridon to the East.

My wife and I have been very fortunate to have had some very special holidays in the past, but the recent ‘Skye and the Islands of the Inner Sound’ cruise with Hebrides Cruises was amongst the best. The administration and organisation were excellent, facilities above expectations, food delicious, and the cruising and land-based experiences perfect. The crew were friendly, efficient and professional, and worked incredibly well as a team. We cannot fault the holiday and would like to thank all concerned.
