Luxury Barge Tour in the Scottish Highlands

Cruise through the Great Glen between Inverness and Fort William, navigating beautiful lochs and the scenic, absorbing Caledonian Canal. Ancient castles perched on the waters edge, heather-clad hillsides and arguably the finest inland cruising in the world. The legends of the past, the taste of single malt and the mythical inhabitant of the Loch Ness all contribute to a special magic only experienced in Scotland's dramatic Highlands.

The 8-passenger barge has 4 rooms each with ensuite facilities; a cosy lounge and dining room with bar where you can relax and enjoy some of the fine whisky on board before a sumptuous meal of local and traditional specialities.

Included in the Luxury Barge Tour:

  • 6 Nights accommodation on board in an air-conditioned, en-suite cabin.
  • The services of an experienced Captain / Host, Chef, Hostess(es), Driver/Tour Guide.
  • Breakfast, lunch and dinner aboard. A local meal ashore, once per week on most barges.
  • An excellent selection of fine regional and international wines and spirits, plus an all day open bar, tea and coffee.
  • Daily excursions by chauffeured minibus and entry fees to castles, vineyards, markets and other local places of interest.
  • Use of barge facilities such as bicycles, boules, barge library and on certain vessels, a spa pool.
