Lord of the Glens

6 Day Spring and Autumn in the Highlands Cruise from Oban to Inverness

The 54 passenger Lord of the Glens journeys through the Scottish countryside in spectacular style. From the moment you step aboard you are surrounded by the rich mahogany finishes of the reception area and lobby. The ship is magnificently appointed and is more in keeping with the standard expected of a stately country manor than that of a five-star ship. The cabins are tastefully decorated, comfortable and spacious with wonderful outside views.
