Sailing and Walking in the Inner Hebrides offers an unbeatable experience of the Highlands of Scotland. The yacht offers comfortable accommodation, great food and wonderful sailing. You will visit a number of islands over the week and our knowledgeable guide will lead you on walks and hikes on each island - exploring the coastline on some islands and the hills and glens on others.
The walks that we undertake on the islands will be generally of an easy grade. This means that we will normally only walk for up to 5 hours in a day, and sometimes we may only go ashore for a couple of hours. Accom Description
Yacht Corryvreckan is a beautiful 65ft steel-hulled ketch. She provides comfortable accommodation for up to 10 clients in twin cabins (single cabins are not available). There is also a large saloon, a wheelhouse and lots of room to stretch your legs on deck.
Yacht Corryvreckan provides a more comfortable sailing experience than you might experience on the classic yacht Eda Frandsen (which we use for our Island Odyssey trips). All cabins have doors, offering a degree of privacy unusual for a yacht, and there is ample stowage for luggage and clothing. The two beds in each cabin are bunk style and each has its own reading lamp. There are 3 heads (or toilets / shower rooms) and no restrictions on water use.
The yacht has full central heating in every cabin and a high standard of insulation, ensuring that the accommodation is warm and dry at all times. The yacht also has a generator so you will be able to recharge cameras, phones etc on board. Don't Miss

Jura â one of the wildest islands in Scotland, with great walking on its raised beaches and with the fearsome Corryvreckan Whirlpool at its northern tip.
The Isle of Mull â the largest of the Inner Hebrides, famed for its eagles, whales, wonderful coastal scenery and the colourful port of Tobermory.
Iona â this small island is located off the western tip of Mull and is a very special place to visit with its famous abbey and historical significance.
Ulva â the Island of Wolves! No wolves remain now but it is a charming little island with lovely walks along the coastline.
Staffa â most famous for the stunning Fingalâs Cave, Staffa is also home to thousands of puffins which make the island their home in early summer.
The Treshnish Isles â a superb destination for wildlife lovers, these islands boast abundant bird and marine life, with some of the largest seabird colonies in Scotland.
The Garvellachs - this tiny, uninhabited island group is home to ancient religous buildings and has amazing vistas from its highest point - a pleasant 173m above the yacht!
