5 Nights

The Scottish coast is a treasure trove of amazing scenery and wildlife. We intend to sail from Oban to the Small Isles of Rum, Eigg, and Muck. At this time of year, we are likely to see Minke whales, dolphin, porpoise and Basking sharks as well as on the wing gannets, Sea eagles, fulmar, puffin and guillemot – to name just a few. We will also visit Loch Scavaig on Skye – and perhaps Loch Moidart – before rounding Ardnamurchan Point and finishing the voyage back at in Oban.

Due to yacht logistical issues, this trip will now finish either on the evening of 23rd August or on the morning of the 24th August. Therefore we have dropped the price to reflect this change.

Trip Start: 19 August

Trip End: 24 August
