This voyage will use the wind to sail around the inner Hebridean islands, with the west coast of Scotland offering some of the most spectacular sailing waters around.
The islands that make up the Hebrides are a bucket list travel destination for many people, and we believe the best way to see them is by ship under sail. This voyage will see Eye of the Wind leave Kyle of Lochalsh and head south for Oban.
Although much of this voyage will be determined by the wind, on the first day of this holiday Eye of the Wind may sail a short distance and anchor in the beautiful Loch Duich, in front of the famous Eilean Donan Castle, which guests should be able to visit with the sailing the dinghy to reach land. Dating back to the 13th century, the castle is swamped in history – and make sure you’ve got your camera! The next day (or evening, depending on the tide), Eye of the Wind will sail through an infamous tidal race, the Kyle Rhea, to one of the most beautiful lochs in Scotland, where the skipper will drop anchor just off Skye.
Then the ship will sail to Mallaig, a pretty harbour with a new marina, luxurious facilities and a delicious bakery for fresh pastries! With a number of spectacular anchorages nearby, Eye of the Wind will spend the remainder of the sailing holiday allowing her guests to explore the mainland and the neighbouring islands, perhaps visit a whiskey distillery on Tobermory before finally sailing through the Sound of Mull and arriving in Oban.

With incredible amounts of character, Eye of the Wind has all the modern amenities and an authentic interior, with a teak maritime décor. Oozing with maritime history, the opportunity to sail on Eye of the Wind is one in a lifetime. This beautiful ship is as eye-catching as they get and she has even featured in several movies, including White Squall, due to her breath-taking appearance as a 1911 brig.
This windjammer offers luxurious holidays on board, cruising some of the most stunning locations in the world.
Although the ship has a large, capable engine, traditional sailing is naturally the preferred mode of travel so there is plenty to get stuck into on deck. The crew are extremely experienced and ready to teach you the workings of a classic tall ship, so no prior knowledge is necessary. Join the crew at any number of the large maritime festivals they appear at, cruise the European coast, or relish some winter sun and climb aboard for their voyages in the Caribbean – including a transatlantic crossing back from the Caribbean to Portugal.
Thanks to the 6 luxurious cabins, all with ensuite bathrooms, Eye of the Wind can sleep a total of 16 guests ensuring ocean passages can be travelled in true comfort. A large dining area, library and sun deck offer a multitude of different spaces to unwind and to get to know your fellow guests and crew.
