Western Isles Sailing 2007
 

We operate a weekly service departing Saturdays, returning late Thursday in the period May- September. Our first cruise departure will be on 12th May then each Saturday thereafter.

Our cruise duration is 6 days as this has been found in practice to be the most popular duration and allows for some weather downtime if required. 

Our base is at the fishing harbour on the Island of Berneray, Sound of Harris. The island is now connected by causeway to North Uist and it is close to the ferry terminal at Lochmaddy where the car ferry from Uig, Skye arrives.

The Western Isles also known as the Outer Hebrides are located on the northwestern edge of Scotland. Nowhere else will you find such diversity of landscapes and species. The peaceful uninhabited islands dotted around the Hebrides are undiscovered treasure troves of deserted white beaches and untouched beauty. Visiting the outer islands is a real adventure experience, where the pleasure of seeing beautiful landscapes and rare species is coupled with the excitement of exploring the most untouched and isolated locations.

Our wildlife cruises visit Islands like, Taransay, Scarp, Mealasta Island, Shiant Islands, Monach Islands, Barra, Mingulay or even St Kilda.

Marine life includes, Whales, Dolphins, Sharks, Seals, Porpoises and Otters
