Oban (GB) - Mallaig (GB)

09 May - 17 May 2020

Voyage to the Islands at the edge of the world. This spring journey will take you on an exploration of the outer Hebrides and St Kilda (weather permitting). From the Northern most headlands of the Isle of Lewis to the southern tip of Vatersay, the Outer Hebrides Islands on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean offer majestic mountains, windswept white beaches and an abundance of wildlife. Enjoy the spectacular landscapes of this remote region, spend peaceful nights at isolated anchorages, take in the seafaring history of the islands and meet the people who have made it their home. Sail back to disembark in Mallaig. From there we recommend you take the train to Glasgow, which will provide you with spectacular views along the way! For Windseekers of all ages, minimum age 15 years.

Ports

Oban (meaning ‘little bay’ in Gaelic) is a small harbor town on the west coast of Scotland, famous for its whiskey distillery. The town occupies a beautiful setting in the Firth of Lorn, and is a perfect place to find shelter from the Atlantic. Walking around town is a pleasure, and close by you’ll find mountains, castles, dramatic coastal scenery, and McCaig’s tower that resembles the Colosseum. In the first week of August, the town plays host to West Highland week, a yearly sailing regatta.

Mallaig is a fishing port in the Scottish Highlands. The picturesque West Highland railway line links Mallaig with Glasgow and with beautiful vistas it is an attraction in itself. From the port you can take a ferry to the popular destination Isle of Skye, as well as other nearby islands. Visit the Mallaig Heritage Centre or take a walk outside of the village and admire the surrounding nature.
