Sail with Skyelark on the West Coast of Scotland to discover the island of Mull.

Your adventure sailing holiday weekend aboard Skyelark will begin in the historic Scottish harbour town of Oban.

Prepare to discover one of the most ruggedly beautiful places on the planet aboard a luxury yacht. You’ll be exploring secret places on deserted beaches and spotting wildlife from Skyelark as she discovers the island of Mull under sail.

LIFE AT SEA

Exactly where you explore with Skyelark will be decided by the wind and tides but the aim of this sailing weekend in the Hebrides is to head for Mull. Life at sea is never predictable but rest assured, an unforgettable adventure sailing holiday will certainly be on the cards. The crew will share a rough itinerary based on the weather for your trip as you arrive and get settled in.

SETTING THE SAILS

Sailing with Skyelark can be as hands-on or as hands-off as you like, but we think part of the fun of a sailing holiday is to get as involved as you can. The crew will guide you in exactly what to do, even if you’ve never stepped foot on a boat before. Skyelark is a modern yacht, fitted with all the mod cons, winches and navigations systems so there will be plenty of opportunities for admiring the views and wildlife watching.

Mull

Once the sails are set, you’re on the way out of Oban for your adventure sailing holiday in Mull. The fourth largest island in Scotland, Mull is home to a plethora of landscapes, small harbour towns and hidden anchorages. Skyelark will show you the beauty of the Isle of Mull from the water, and will also give you the chance to explore on foot. Relax in sheltered anchorages and watch picturesque sunsets, and if we are blessed with dark skies, the stargazing from the deck is breathtaking.

WONDERFUL WILDLIFE ENCOUNTERS

From stags to sea otters, a sailing holiday in the West Coast of Scotland is a wildlife lover’s dream so have your binoculars at the ready. You’ll most likely encounter huge sea eagles in the Small Isles and see hundreds of species of sea birds with the chance to get friendly with wild puffins when you go ashore – they’re very inquisitive and always come to say hello. Whales and the odd Orca are also sighted on occasion, but it’d be an unusual trip if you didn’t see bottlenose dolphins or porpoises swimming in the wake of the bow.

HUNGRY SAILORS

Each meal aboard Skyelark will be home-cooked using local ingredients where possible, resulting in the most delicious spread of food every evening. All dietary requirements are catered for and you don’t even have to worry about washing up, as the crew take care of that too while you unwind in the luxury saloon or perhaps above decks under the stars.

Wherever the winds take you, there is certainly always somewhere magical to explore and sail in the Hebrides. Skyelark provides the perfect base for that adventure sailing holiday of a lifetime. Perfect for solo travellers, couples and even available for private charter, jump aboard and feel the magic of the Hebrides as she glides through the Scottish seas.
