Life on board Lord of the Highlands

With rich hardwood finishes, offset by cream panelling, Lord of the Highlands is reminiscent of a Pullman carriage from the golden age. The splendid and elevated upper deck affords spectacular views from the picture windows as guests dine in the Caledonian Restaurant or relax in the Panorama Lounge with a drink from the well-stocked bar. There are twenty outward facing pictured windowed cabins, spread over two decks, including a suite and four with small private balconies.

The small, personal nature of Lord of the Highlands ensures a different style of cruising and attracts a friendly group of like-minded souls. Forty fellow guests is a comfortable number to get to know, making it easy to find new friends onboard. At mealtimes, everyone eats together, and there are plenty of cosy corners to continue the conversation into the evening.

The dedicated crew is hand-picked to bring the finest service to guests. They strive day and night to ensure that this is the best holiday you have taken. As a small ship, guests and crew become quickly acquainted. Stewards welcome you by name and will memorise any dietary requirements and other preferences. So sit back, relax and enjoy life on board.

Enchanting Caledonian Canal cruise holidays

The Caledonian Canal runs from Inverness in the north east of Scotland to Fort William (Corpach) in the south west, following the course of the Great Glen. This magnificent coast-to-coast channel stretches 62 miles through pretty towns and villages, scenic lochs and stunning countryside. Unlike larger cruise ships, Lord of the Highlands is the perfect size to navigate this great waterway and was purpose-built for the job.

Lord of the Highlands’ cruise destinations along Scotland’s Caledonian Canal and west coast showcase this spectacular part of the world. There is no need to decide which tours and visits you would like to participate in, as they are all included in the fare. Plus, a knowledgeable guide is always on board to share information and answer your questions.

We look forward to welcoming you on board Lord of the Highlands to share with you the dramatic beauty, rich history and enchanting stories of Scotland’s magnificent Caledonian Canal, Great Glen and Western Seaboard. All from the comfort of our small, intimate and stylish cruise ship.
