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.
Deep in the Scottish Highlands lie lochs full of mystery, all waiting to be discovered. The most famous of all, is possibly Loch Ness, home to the mythological Loch Ness monster, or 'Nessie' as she is referred to by locals. There are said to be over 30,000 lochs in the Scottish Highlands, each a wonder of natural beauty.
On our tours, you will encounter the Isle of Skye, home to Loch Coruisk, a deep black lake encircled by steep and darkening mountains. The loch is a result of volcanic action and glaciation and inspired painter JMW Turner and writer Sir Walter Scott to write to his poem 'The Lord of the Isles'.
