A taste of the Highlands

Oban to Oban

Friday 8th April to Wednesday 13th April 2022

From £2,390 per person

5 nights including
1 Gala Dinners

Embark in Oban to join Lord of the Highlands’ maiden voyage as she sets sail through scenic lochs and the intricate inland waterways which make up the Caledonian Canal.
The Caledonian Canal is one of the most fascinating waterways in Europe. Opened in 1822, it was built to provide a short cut between the North Sea and the Atlantic Ocean and has retained its unspoiled character.
The highest point of the canal is 106 feet above sea level, at Loch Oich, where we retrace our steps and exit the canal at Loch Linnhe. From here we discover the Inner Hebridean Isles of Mull and Iona before our voyage concludes in the bustling port of Oban.
