Wilderness Cruises (Slow Adventuring)
Loch Nevis – A scenic cruise that heads north up Loch Nevis, stopping at Inverie and Airor.
Passengers can expect a wealth of experiences from this trip, from the looming, romantic landscapes
and diverse wildlife to the rich sites of local and natural history and the cosy, rural settings. A perfect
way to experience the landscapes and culture of the Scottish Highlands.
The Gavin Maxwell Experience – A trip themed around the writer Gavin Maxwell’s
autobiography, Ring of Bright Water. This trip offers a relaxing day at Sandaig bay and Airor. Visitors
experience a day of beachcombing, line-fishing, and a beach barbeque, but also refreshing walks
along the shoreline and back into the woods, otter-watching and an introduction to Maxwell’s
biography. All this is neatly capped off with home-baking and teas and coffees at Airor.
Eilean Donan Castle – A trip leaving from either Inverie or Mallaig, heading up the Kyle narrows
to the Medieval island castle of Eilean Donan. This package offers the postcard-perfect landscape of
mountains and sea lochs and guided tours of the castle itself, providing a not only a great chance to
learn about both Jacobite and modern history, but to experience them too. Rounding off this day is
a trip to Isleornsay, where visitors can enjoy local cuisine, traditional music and art, locally-vatted
malt whiskies and more.
Isle of Canna – A day trip out to the smallest island in the inner Hebrides, Canna. Here visitors are
taken all around the island: shown landscape and beaches, the ruins and early settlements and
structures scattered there and the colonies of puffins and nests of fishing eagles, to name only a few
things to see. This day is capped off by the delicious, heart-warming cooking in the café Canna ,
including a fresh-caught lobster dinner.
