Barge Cruises in Scotland

For a magical barge cruise, Scotland is hard to surpass. We cruise sedately through the Great Glen between Inverness and Fort William, navigating beautiful lochs and the engineering masterpiece that is the Caledonian Canal. Ancient castles perched on the water’s edge, heather-clad hillsides and arguably the finest inland cruising in the world offer our clients unforgettable experiences on a handpicked barge cruise. Scotland’s legends of the past, the taste of single malt and the mythical inhabitant of Loch Ness all contribute to a magical charm only experienced in the dramatic Highlands.

Scottish Highlander has the atmosphere of a Scottish country house with subtle use of tartan furnishings and landscape paintings. At 117 feet long, she is spacious and has every comfort for cruises in Scotland in all weathers. Let the marvels of this stunning land unravel before your eyes from the hull of this stunning vessel.

Cuisine is traditional Scottish fare – salmon, game and seafood, prepared by your own Master Chef, and the hotel barge’s experienced crew of four will take care of your every need.

A cruise aboard Scottish Highlander along the Great Glen through some of Scotland’s finest scenery will be unforgettable. According to guests who have experienced a barge cruise, Scotland is one of the top regions to see from the water.

The 8 passenger Scottish Highlander has been designed specifically for our Highland cruise with plenty of interior viewing space to protect you from the elements including a cosy observation area in the wheelhouse. Aboard a luxury barge cruise, Scotland’s lochs and the Caledonian Canal are accessible whatever the weather.
