Overview


Embrace the breathtaking scenery of the Scottish lochs on an incredible seven night sailing, taking in beautiful waterways, natural wonders and remote islands and towns aboard your smaller-sized cruise ship – the best way to truly appreciate the astonishing beauty of this picture-perfect part of the world. The picturesque Sound of Canna presents you with your first glimpse of Scotland’s stunning scenery before your ship diverts into magical Loch Dunvegan, flanked by gorgeous lush countryside as far as the eye can see. In the Orkneys, take the chance to admire the islands’ rugged landscapes from Kirkwall from where you can also tour to the 5,000-year-old Neolithic village of Skara Brae and ancient stone circles of Stenness and Brodgar. A full day in Kirkwall is followed by a visit to Invergordon – gateway to infamous Loch Ness, the historic castle of Cawdor and the Highland’s largest house, Dunrobin Castle – before Black Watch drops anchor at Ullapool. Perhaps go ashore to explore this pretty town; or opt to take a boat trip on the spectacular, glacier-carved Loch Glencoul. Alternatively you could choose to see the tumbling waters of Eas a' Chual Aluinn – Britain’s highest waterfall – up close on an unforgettable tour before boarding the ship once again to cruise Loch Broom. Then, after an overnight sail to the beautiful Isle of Mull, you’ll stop at Tobermory. The iconic pastel-coloured harbour – which you may recognise from hit children’s television show Balamory – will beckon you ashore to explore the island’s pretty capital, where attractions such as the Mull Museum and the Tobermory Distillery await. Finally, after sailing the Sound of Mull by the imposing 13th century Duart Castle, a call into Greenock – ‘Gateway to the Lochs’ – offers opportunities to discover two of the Scottish Highland’s most desired spots, Loch Lomand and Trossachs National Park. Discovering the magnificent mountain scenery and dense woodlands surrounding the largest stretch of freshwater in Britain is the perfect end to invigorating, seven night Scottish adventure.

    Ancient echoes of Christian, Nordic and Celtic history resonate here in the capital of the Orkneys, whose 70 little islands of the Scottish north coast were conquered by 9th century Norsemen before being returned after non-payment of a loan! Kirkwall's St Magnus Cathedral has been drawing worshippers for 800 years – but even this time scale is eclipsed by the 5,000-years-old enigma of Skara Brae's Neolithic settlement.

The Ship


Cruise ships were once famous for their style and charm. And our Black Watch cruise ship is a hark back to those days, when quality and service were taken for granted. Sleek and intimate, with cabins and suites for 804 people, Black Watch has a warm welcome waiting for you. Black Watch was voted 'Best for Entertainment' in the 2012 Cruise Critic 'Cruisers' Choice UK Awards’*. Only UK cruisers voted, and they were especially impressed with our service: “they consistently went the extra mile”. So, be captivated by the entertaining cabaret at the Neptune Lounge,and fire-up your taste buds for a treat at the Glentanar Restaurant. Or, share a relaxing drink over panoramic views across the ocean in our Observatory Lounge.
