These are some of the likely stopovers and anchorages on this cruise:
Tobermory: The main town on Mull has a bustling harbour in a very scenic setting with it colourful harbour-front buildings. Go ashore to try the speciality food and craft shops or take a scenic walk in the woods around Tobermory Bay.
Mingulay: From Tobermory we set out for the southern most tip of the Outer Hebrides visiting Mingulay with its incredible seacliffs, deserted village, lost history and truly stunning beach. The sounds and sights of the seals coming ashore at night are unforgettable; we have counted over 200.
Vatersay: Passing the small outcrop of Islands which include Sandy and Pabbay, our next stop is the white sands of Vatersay where the Machair is in full bloom. It is possible to stand on hilly ground and view two of the most spectacular beaches in the Hebrides on either side.
Barra: A short cruise takes us to Castlebay on the Island of Barra with a the classic view of Kishorn Castle in the Bay.
Eriskay: Cruising the length of Barra, we arrive at another small island, Eriskay, of "Whisky Galore" fame and with more gorgeous beaches. Linked to South Uist by a causeway, the shallow waters are turquoise and green reflecting the sandy sea bottom.
Lochmaddy, North Uist: We cruise the length of the coastline of South Uist, Benbecula and North Uist to reach Lochmaddy and an incredible marine landscape that is peppered with hundreds of tiny islands.
Loch Rodel, Harris: From North Uist we cross the straits to Loch Rodel on the very southern tip of Harris. From this location we will set out for St Kilda, given favourable weather conditions.
St Kilda: There is an amazing sense of anticipation as the outline of these stunning and mystical islands comes into view. Anchoring in Village Bay we go ashore on Hirta to explore the poignant history with the option for a guided walk. After an overnight stay in Village Bay, we cruise the stacs to get a close view of thousands of sea birds.
Shiant Islands: On our return passage via the Sound of Harris, we visit the magical Shiant Islands, which is often described as a mini St Kilda with seacliffs and birds galore, a stunning horse shoe anchorage, and outstanding archaeology.
On the final leg of our return journey we cruise under the famous Skye Bridge and through the Kyle narrows towards Oban and disembarkation from an unforgettable St Kilda & Outer Hebridean journey
