Explore Scotland’s beautiful coastal pathways on an all-inclusive voyage with Hebridean Island Cruises.

Hebridean Island Cruises offers luxury voyages around Scotland, Northern Ireland and The Isle of Man. They are one of the only operators dedicated to cruising the British Isles and are the perfect choice if you want a cruise in the region.

All Hebridean Island Cruises’ itineraries are aboard the 50-guest capacity Hebridean Princess, a revered vessel Queen Elizabeth II has previously chartered for The Royal Family’s private holidays.

Cruising Scotland with Hebridean

From the Northern Isles with their rich Nordic undertones to the Inner and Outer Hebrides, Hebridean Island Cruises’ itineraries have been created to take in a selection of Scotland’s many islands and islets. The places you visit with Hebridean exude an air of magic and mystery that is perhaps incomparable to any other region on Earth.

Exploring Ashore

The shore excursions offered by Hebridean Island Cruises are a mixture of trips to historical landmarks, visits to hidden townships and opportunities to explore ruins left behind by Mesolithic civilisations. Many of these are included and any entrance fees you might have to pay.

Onboard Hebridean Princess

When not exploring ashore, you will be given ample time to relax aboard the wonderful Hebridean Princess. A one-of-a-kind vessel, Hebridean Princess encapsulates everything to celebrate the joys of small-ship cruising.

Her decor echoes the warmth and friendly atmosphere of an exclusive country club. The little touches – such as the unique approach to naming the cabins and suites after Scottish islands rather than by number – are another example of what sets Hebridean Princess apart from other five-star ships of a similar size.
