Ullapool (GB) - Oban (GB)

08 October - 16 October 2021

A voyage along the Inner Hebrides. Filled with beautiful anchorages, sailing and maybe some Scotch whisky. Board the Tecla in Ullapool and set course for the archipelago of Inner Hebrides, all the way south to Oban. Along the way you will visit beautiful places with plenty of hiking opportunities! Explore the “enchanted” Shiants, the Isle of Skye and Tobermory Bay. Visit small villages and historic sights, take in the wonderful landscapes with 100-metres cliffs and admire the local wildlife. Sail, hike and discover new places while enjoying spending time outdoors. Open to all ages, minimum age 15 years.

Ports

Ullapool, despite its small size is the largest settlement for many miles around and a major tourist destination of Scotland. The village was founded in 1788 as a herring port by the British Fisheries Society. A few Cordyline australis or New Zealand cabbage trees are grown in the town and are often mistaken for palms. The harbour is still the edge of the village, used as a fishing port, yachting haven, and ferry port. Enjoy the beautiful surroundings here.

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.
