Follow in the footsteps of the Celtic forefathers along Scotland’s magnificent northern coastline, filled with history, incredible wildlife and geological marvels.

The dramatic coastline of the western islands and Highlands is peppered with many stunningly sheltered cruising waters amid spectacular scenery. Pretty villages and golden beaches extend towards the northwestern islands which dot the north Atlantic to create a wonderland of seabird speckled cliffs, towering sea stacks, glorious mountains and windswept moors.

The remote northern islands of Shetland and Orkneys are warmed by the Gulf Stream and abound with nature reserves and archaeological sites and offer a taste of traditional island life. While the northeastern coast typifies a seaboard carved by the North Sea creating a unique visual landscape and a haven for wildlife.

Trekking in the Scottish Highlands offers spectacular scenery where you can discover the majesty of deep glens, wild lochs, diverse wildlife, and learn about the region’s history and legends.

Explore the real world.
