Explore the stunning Stornoway, Ullapool and St Ellen on this eco-cruise on Golden Horizon

From Glasgow's closest port of Greenock, we'll cruise over to
the Isle of Mull, docking in its colourful capital where an
unmistakable row of painted houses offers a bright welcome. Here,
you'll get to tour Druart Castle for a window on the historic clans
of Scotland, or enjoy a scenic cruise on the Sound of Mull where
dolphins and minke whales swim in the waters.
Stornoway is the next stop, the gateway to the Western Isles
where Harris Tweed outlets are brimming with beautiful fabrics and
ancient history awaits on the verdant Isle of Lewis. Explore the
castle or see some Neolithic standing stones.
You can take in Corrieshalloch Gorge and its rushing waterfalls
in Ullapool, or you could opt to hike the dramatic, ancient
landscapes of Knockan Crag. Docking in Portree, the pretty
waterside capital of the Isle of Skye, we'll head out to explore
the island's lofty landscapes. The rich-green foliage and unusual
rock formations of the Fairy Glen are simply otherworldly, and the
Old Man of Storr is striking evidence of geological shifts from
Sip single malts in Islay - Scotland's whisky isle - and meet
the hen harriers of Loch Gruinart nature reserve, before we finally
dock back in Glasgow to finish our voyage.
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.
