During this winter refit period, we have continued with our programme of cabin refurbishment. Once again we have worked closely with interior designers Sally and Lynsey from John Dick and Sons to transform 12 guest cabins on board. 

Continuing with the subtle Scottish feel created in the public areas and previously refurbished cabins, locally manufactured fabrics have been used including plaid and Harris Tweed. Complementary colours and textures give each cabin its own individual identity and luxurious fabrics give a comfortable yet contemporary ambience.

The Isle of Arran suite now boasts wallpaper and fabric featuring vintage parchment maps, a world globe inset in the coffee table and an elegant sage green and sand colour scheme.

In addition, a total of 10 guest cabins have been fitted with brand new bathrooms using quality sanitary ware and brass fittings.

A further transformation you will notice is the on board shop. During the winter new stock has been sourced from local suppliers and is now attractively displayed in our wee shop.

We have even had a bespoke range of bow ties and cufflinks created by the Edinburgh Bow Tie Company from our very own Hebridean tartan, as well as an exclusive range of mens engraved leather wallets, supplied locally by Leather Guild.

To complement this for the ladies we had Lady Crow tartan silk scarves with beautiful pewter brooches, Sheila Fleet Jewellery, Leather Guild Tweed and leather handbags and purses plus a fine selection of Scottish toiletries and confectionery.

We are sure you will be tempted by the new array of mementos and souvenirs to take home for yourself or your loved ones.
