There’s no better way to discover Scotland’s stunning shoreline than by boat, discovering the secluded sea lochs, remote islets, and sheltered coves of the 750 Scottish islands. Each destination offers its own unique charm, rich history, and abundant wildlife. With a Scotland yacht charter, you have the flexibility to craft your own itinerary, allowing you to explore iconic locations like the Hebrides, Orkney, or the Firth of Clyde at your own pace.

No sailing experience needed

Our all-inclusive Scotland yacht charters are fully crewed by knowledgeable and experienced sailors, ensuring you don’t need any sailing experience to enjoy your holiday. Your skipper will expertly navigate the waters, while you relax and soak in the views. Should you wish to get hands-on, you’re welcome to assist with hoisting the sails, taking the helm, or even trying your hand at chart reading. Alternatively, simply unwind and watch the ever-changing landscape as you sail through some of the world’s most beautiful sailing grounds.

Discover the magic of the Hebrides

For those looking to island-hop, our tailored itineraries can take you from the white sands of Iona to the enchanting landscapes of Arran, Rum, and Jura. Discover the local culture, historic monuments, and magical wildlife that make these islands so special. With long summer days and ideal sailing conditions, the Western Isles offer an idyllic setting for your private yacht charter in Scotland. Our experienced skippers will guide you to sheltered bays or long, winding lochs, far from the beaten track. Once anchored, there’s ample opportunity to explore ashore, climb a high point, swim off the boat, or relax on a remote sandy beach.

The Scottish islands are undoubtedly a haven for wildlife enthusiasts. Sail through the Hebrides and you might spot puffins nesting on the cliffs, or marvel at birds of prey like buzzards and peregrines. The waters are alive with marine life, including common dolphins, bottlenose dolphins, and the majestic orcas that glide through the waves. Each encounter with Scotland’s wildlife is a moment to treasure.
