Discover Scotland's rugged islands, spectacular wildlife and most vibrant cities as you sail from Edinburgh to Glasgow on the luxurious Golden Horizon
Sailing from Leith, where you'll have had the chance to explore
some of Edinburgh's top attractions, we make our way north, across
the Firth of Forth and onto Aberdeen. Visit the Maritime Museum and
Aberdeen Art Gallery, or take a day to hike in the Cairngorms
National Park, the largest nature preserve in Scotland, where
mountains and country estates - including Her Majesty's Balmoral
Castle - are ten-a-penny.
Next up is Invergordon, the gateway to Loch Ness, and then we'll
cruise around Scapa Flow, where the wild and remote Orkney Islands
are stranded off the coast of mainland Scotland. Ullapool is where
we'll explore the rugged landscapes of Corrieshalloch Gorge or
Knockan Crag, before we land on the Isle of Skye. Visit the
otherworldly Fairy Glen and see the striking Man of Storr, and
don't miss a taste of local Talisker whisky.
A stop in Tobermory offers clan history at Duart Castle, and
Fort William is your jumping off point for adventures around
towering Ben Nevis. You can taste whisky in Islay - Scotland's best
island for smoky malts - and finish up in Greenock, where you can
strike out into Glasgow to taste your way around the city's
fantastic food scene.
Your home throughout will be the luxurious Golden Horizon, a
near replica of a 1913-built ocean-faring ship, which combines the
charm and romance of a classical vessel, with the food and service
you expect of a modern ship.
