Voyage from Plymouth to Scotland with luxury yacht Skyelark as she sails along the UK coast visiting the Isles of Scilly, Ireland and the Caledonian Canal.
Your 20-day sailing holiday adventure will begin on the South coast in the maritime port of Plymouth and will certainly be the trip of a lifetime. From here you will discover the beautiful south-west coast, the Isles of Scilly, the east coast of Ireland and the Caledonian Canal before reaching your final destination of Oban.
Leaving Plymouth there are plenty of options for stopovers in some picturesque harbours. Dartmouth, Salcombe, Fowey and Falmouth are all options depending on the weather before heading out to the Isles of Scilly.
Once you have explored the stunning archipelago of the Isles of Scilly, its time to head up to the east coast of Ireland. If the weather is right we will aim for the lovely Kinsale, then onwards to Dublin and Bangor and perhaps even an opportunity to enjoy the fascinating Titanic museum in Belfast.
As long as the weather permits, you can visit Douglas on the Isle of Man before heading up through the breathtaking islands as we enter the west coast of Scotland. Enjoy the scenery, take some walks in the mountains or relax on the sandy shores.
We will round notorious Cape Wrath for some truly exhilarating adventure sailing and plan to visit the Orkney Islands where you can enjoy coastal hikes and ancient culture exploring the many historical sites. We will then head towards Inverness for a tranquil transition through Caledonian Canal to finish our trip in Oban back on the West Coast.
