If you’re pouring over holiday
and hotel brochures trying to decide where to go on your next trip, stop what
you’re doing and consider something completely different - but something 100
times more memorable and relaxing. Consider a sailing charter holiday in
Scotland. Here’s why:
Whether you are new to sailing or you’ve sailed before, a yacht charter holiday in Scotland will be your most memorable holiday yet. It’s better than a hotel! Going on a skippered sailing charter holiday means you’ll get all the perks of sailing, but none of the work. You’ll be hiring a professional skipper along with the yacht, so you can sit back and relax on the water – everything else will be taken care of for you. You can simply focus on your surroundings, and believe us when we say, there’s nothing like seeing the beauty of Scotland from our waters.
The itinerary is completely up to you. Where have you always wanted to sail? Would you like to cruise up the loch to one of our renowned seafood restaurants (did we tell you that Scotland’s seafood is highly sought after by the best chefs in Europe – it’s that good)? Or would you prefer we take you to some of our best, and quietest, beaches and bays. Alternatively, would you prefer to visit somewhere a little livelier on the coast to enjoy some fabulous Scottish hospitality – perhaps Inveraray, Oban, or Brodick on Arran, an island that’s often referred to as Scotland in miniature. Like most charter companies, we’ll work with you to come up with your perfect itinerary. You’ll benefit from our experience and the knowledge of the skipper (our skippers are amongst the friendliest, most professional seafarers ever).

Sailing in Scotland is particularly special, and one of the best sailing destinations in Europe. Why? The landscape. It is awe inspiring and even if you’re from Scotland or you’ve visited before, seeing the country from the water gives you a completely different perspective on those majestic mountains and sweeping glens. Then there’s the wildlife. Depending on the time of year and exact location, you could see otters, seals, eagles, and sea eagles – even dolphins and whales. Or you might see the regal red deer stags roaming the hillside from your spot on the water.

Not only will you see the country from a new perspective, but you’ll see lots of the country too! In other words, you will cover lots of ground – or should that be water?! We think it is a much better experience travelling in comfort aboard one of our yachts than it is being in the car or bus, traveling from A to B. You’ll see far more as you travel, and there won’t be any traffic jams or ferry timetables to worry about. You could go island hopping on the Inner Hebrides, or explore the rugged and beautiful west coast – from Arran all the way to Ardnamurchan, the choice is yours. Every day you’ll wake up to a new view.
You will really enjoy the feeling of freedom and tranquillity. You’ll wake up each morning on tranquil and peaceful waters, with a real feeling of freedom. You and your party could be the only tourists around. Your holiday can be private and peaceful if you want it to be – and that’s difficult to achieve in the modern world these days, isn’t it. It’s the perfect getaway and chance to recharge, which is so important in modern life.
