Spend 16 days exploring the coast of the UK and the Scottish Highlands from Liverpool to Aberdeen.

We will set sail from Liverpool, the maritime city in northwest England and end your adventure in the northeast port of Scotland in Aberdeen.

With 16 days to make this voyage, there will be plenty of opportunities to visit remote islands, and maybe get in a couple of distillery tours too! By navigating around the unspoiled coast there will be plenty of opportunities to visit some west coast and north coast Islands. Perhaps stop at the mesmerising Treshnish Islands to see the Puffins and enjoy the best scenery the Highlands have to offer.

Experience the peace and tranquillity of this isolated environment or accept the warm Western Isles welcome of communities waiting to offer you some traditional highland hospitality.

As with all Blue Clipper’s sailing holidays, your ticket price includes Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Snacks and Soft Drinks. There are six ensuite twin cabins and one six-berth cabin with a shared bathroom. All cabins are available for single occupancy at a 40% surcharge. All cabins have bedding and towels provided.
