Sailing trip Skye / Hebrides: If there is still untouched nature somewhere in Europe, it certainly applies to the islands of the Scottish west coast: the inner and outer Hebrides.
The silence of the mountains, the indescribable views, the rugged coasts with hidden coves and their quiet fishing villages and the unique sight of the islands in the distance, is something that somebody has to see in his life. The Flying Dutchman will take you to these special islands, which can only be reached by ship.

Remarks


 

The indicated program is a guide and can be adjusted under the influence of weather, currents and wind. Flexibility is the rule on this journey.

Day 1: Oban

The round trip to Skye and the outer Hebrides begins in Oban, a cozy fishing village located in a beautiful bay.
You will be welcomed on board from 6 pm and meet the crew and fellow passengers. This is followed by a welcome dinner and we raise the glass on a nice trip

Day 2: Eigg

Eigg is a beautiful island with amazing nature and perhaps the greenest island in the world. And that is not only due to the unspoiled landscape. Since February 1, 2008 the island has its own and independent electricity network. The electricity is sustainable generated by a combination of solar cells, wind turbines and hydro power. In 1997 the residents bought the island from the previous owner. This makes Eigg the first Scottish island to be owned by the residents. Someone who has lived on the island for more than six months automatically becomes a member of the residents’ committee.

Day 3 & 4: Harris and Lewis

We sail to the middle of Harris and Lewis to Tarbert.
The west coast of the Isle of Harris consists of a series of breathtaking beaches, all flanked by dunes and the local Machair (the plant species that is unique to these islands). There is so much to see and do here that we stay here for a day. You can visit the entire island by bus, there is also a new whiskey distillery in Tarbert that is worth a visit.

Day 5: Skye

Today we visit Skye, one of the largest islands on our tour. The Isle of Skye is an absolute must and show’s some of the most impressive landscapes: sharp hills, picturesque coastlines, a whiskey distillery and many sights. We are going to the main town of Skye Portree.

Day 6: Portree

We spend a large part of the day in Portree, the largest city in Skye with around 2000 inhabitants. You will have the opportunity to discover the town and the island. At the end of the day we continue to Plockton, a beautiful village on the banks of Loch Carron.

Day 7: Tobermory

It goes to Tobermory and after a beautiful day with lots of photo moments we moor in the picturesque fishing village of Tobermory with its colorful houses on the water and its small but famous whiskey distillery.

Day 8: Oban

The next morning we continued our Skye tour and the outside Hebrides and set sail to Oban. We sail along the beautiful Scottish West Coast where the space and looks on the Isle of Mull show us the beauties of pristine Scotland. Oban was a small fishing village with a sheltered harbor, but with the arrival of a steamship and a railroad in 1880, Oban became the center for sailing inward and outward.

Day 9: Oban

After breakfast, it is unfortunately time to say goodbye to each other. It was a wonderful voyage of discovery to Skye and the outside Hebrides. On behalf of the crew, we wish you a good return journey.
