About Hebridean Princess
For the many devotees of this very special little cruise ship, exploring from the sea is the best way to experience the beauty of Scotland. Highlands and islands, lochs and remote mainland areas are all accessible from the comfort of Hebridean Princess. Carrying just 49 guests, she has a reputation for exceptional service, fine food and wine and the warm welcome extended by the crew. She has 30 elegant and spacious cabins, 11 designed with the single traveller in mind.
In the course of 20 seasons, Hebridean has shared local knowledge with passengers, and introduced them to some of the loveliest places in the Highlands & Islands off Scotland and Northern Ireland. Romantic castles; tranquil, spectacular lochs; wide open spaces and seldom-seen vistas. A selection of "Footloose" cruises caters for most walking abilities with a range of guided walks, and the promise of a nip of whisky and a hearty meal back on board.
Cruises of between four and eight nights depart mainly from Oban, sailing the waters of the western isles and beyond to St Kilda, the Orkney and Shetland Isles, and for 2009, Norway and the east coast of Ireland. Hebridean Princess always carries well informed local guides.
