Lord of the Glens
Scotland cruises through beautiful lochs and the Caledonian Canal
Wild heather landscapes and dramatic glens combine with breathtaking lochs and canals to make Scotland a country of phenomenal natural beauty. With Great Rail Journeys you will voyage along one of Great Britain's most famous waterways - the Caledonian Canal - and sail over the sea to Scotland's idyllic islands. Medieval Castles, World Heritage Sites and journeys on scenic heritage railways are just a few of the possible highlights of our Scotland cruises.
On these relaxing voyages you will have the opportunity to explore the rich culture and natural beauty of Scotland, which has inspired poetry, folklore and legends. All our Scotland cruises sail along the remarkable Caledonian Canal, which flows from Inverness on the east coast to Fort William on the west coast, crossing a total of 60 miles. The man-made sections of the canal connect four of Scotland's famous lochs; Loch Dochfour, Loch Ness, Loch Oich, and Loch Lochy. The most famous of these is of course Loch Ness, which is rumoured to be home to the mythical sea creature Nessie.
