Scotland

Along the western and northern coasts of Scotland lie some magnificent and very rarely visited islands. Their fascinating history dates back to 6500 years BC, if not earlier. The rugged cliffs host impressive bird colonies including hundreds of thousands of gannets and puffins, while the islands’ scenery of green fields, empty beaches and caves are only waiting to be explored.

Our ships in Scotland

  • M/S Stockholm

    Built 1953/1999 12 passengers

    The M/S Stockholm is a classic vessel built in 1953 for the Swedish National Maritime Administration. She is a marvellous piece of maritime history with beautiful brass details and pine decks. With a maximum of only 12 passengers on board, this is like travelling on a private yacht.
