The beauty of a small ship cruise is that they deliver the perfect mix of elegance, something you would expect from a cruise holiday, combined with a ship just the right size to get you into the heart of each destination. Nowhere is this more evident than on our tours. We specially selected MV Lord of the Glens as it provides the comforts of a mini ocean liner alongside the charm of a traditional river steamer.

The MV Lord of the Glens has been specially designed to expertly sail through both the Scottish inland waterways of the Caledonian Canal, as well as the open waters around Scotland's hauntingly beautiful west coast. Handpicked for its excellent design, wonderfully sumptuous food that draws on Scottish specialities, and deluxe cabins offering views that you can't wait to wake up to, the MV Lord of the Glens is a truly special cruise ship that provides all who sail in her a cherished experience.
