Our luxury ship, MV Lord of the Glens, is the only passenger vessel of its kind, designed to navigate both the Scottish inland waterways of the Caledonian Canal and the open sea.
MV Lord of the Glens offers a truly unique way to take in the peaceful atmosphere and timeless landscape of Scotland's most dramatically beautiful lochs.
The 150-foot-long Lord of the Glens was originally built in Greece in 1985. Designed in homage to the grand old Royal Yacht Britannia, this vessel oozes charm and regal elegance, from the proud bow and exterior, to the luxurious cabins and leisure areas. Prior to its relaunch in 2000, the vessel was completely renovated, and its interiors were designed to complement the region it serves - the waters of Scotland's lochs and canals. Nowadays, it is a regular feature of the Scottish coastal landscape as it weaves in an out of the bays, harbours and inlets which characterise Scotland's shores.
Split into four decks, each named after a famous Scotsman, the Lord of the Glens is spacious and well-maintained. The upper deck plays host to the lounge and bar area, with its location on board offering sublime views of the green islands and ancient castles of Scotland through panoramic windows. This is the perfect place to sit back with a Scottish whiskey and socialise with your fellow passengers as the gentle scenery drifts past. The restaurant, further down, seats around 60 diners, each of whom are regaled with a dazzling array of sumptuous meals, taking their culinary cues from each destination the ship visits.
The refined and enchanting cabins are a delight to stay in. With a tasteful colour scheme finished off with wooden furniture, these wonderful rooms have everything you might need during your time on board. Amenities include an ensuite bathroom, a television, a safe, a music system and a hairdryer.
The ship boasts an ambience most usually found within a country manor-house, with warm, rich woods and overstuffed furnishings in the public spaces, teak and mahogany touches in the staterooms and expansive sun decks. The cabins, all of which have windows or double portholes, span three of the decks; the top deck is used solely as public space, with two lounges, a bar and a library.
The moment you step aboard the vessel you are surrounded by rich mahogany finishes in the reception area and lobby. The Bar and Lounge are located on the top deck, affording magnificent views of the surrounding scenery, before leading to the forward teak-clad viewing area.
Inside, the bar is warm and welcoming with plenty of sofas to relax on. There is a small dance and entertainment area where local artistes give regular performances.
