Day 1: Oban
On this beautiful Scotland journey, we like to welcome you in Oban. Once you’ve embarked, you can meet the other participants and the crew. Around 15.00 we will start our Sailing Loch Ness trip sail to Fort William.
Day 2: Caledonian Canal
Today we start on the famous Neptune’s Staircase, which are 8 locks in a row. We always attract a lot of attention, because we are one of the biggest ships that can go through the Canal and the locks. After the locks, we arrive in a fairy tale part of the canal with some little lakes now and then but sometimes also very narrow, with high rising trees in autumn colours, like sailing in the woods.
We sail trough enchanting lakes like Loch Lochy, Loch Oich and Loch Dochfour. And if it’s possible, we will sail upwards and let the wind take us over the magnificent lakes. Enjoy the tranquility of the water and the beautiful landscape that floats by. Watch the amazing skies and views. After a beautiful day with many photo moments, we arrive at Fort Augusta. There is a possibility to visit a cozy pub here.
Day 3: Loch Ness-Inverness
Today our beautiful Sailing Loch Ness trip will go through 6 locks to get to the famous Loch Ness. We might even see Nessie. Monster or not, it’s a wonderful trip through Scotland in an enchanting environment. We have traveled straight through Scotland from west to east and discovered the highlands from the water. Finally we reach Inverness, a cozy city with authentic bars, where you can enjoy the traditional Scottish music at night.
Day 4: Inverness
After a good breakfast, it is time to say goodbye. This Sailing Loch Ness trip was a breathtaking and beautiful experience.
