Our sailing yacht charter is, we believe, unique in Scotland – the only opportunity for complete novices to try their hand at sailing with no need to go on courses first or acquire any ‘tickets’. With no tides and simple navigation sailing novices can charter our yachts and enjoy a carefree boating holiday among some of the finest scenery in Scotland. As much sailing tuition as is required by the novice sailor is provided before you set off.
All our cruising yachts have reliable engines, so how much or how little you actually sail during your boating holiday is entirely up to you. Even if you don’t get the sails up you will still enjoy a holiday you will never forget as skipper of your own boat on the beautiful Caledonian Canal, the UK’s most spectacular inland waterway.
Because of our situation near the middle of the canal, at the Eastern end of Loch Lochy, there are no deadlines or timetables. When you go aboard you can choose to spend your first night on our pontoon or cruise off Westwards down Loch Lochy with no need to worry about locking times. If you choose to go East from our base at Laggan Locks your route will take you through gentle Loch Oich with its tree covered shores and on to Fort Augustus, from where you can sail for over twenty miles on Loch Ness, the most famous of Scotland’s lochs.
If you have always wanted to try sailing a modern yacht but thought it was too expensive or would take too long to learn, why not take a look at our dedicated sailing mini-site and check out our amazing prices.
You could be skippering your own yacht under sail through Scotland’s finest scenery this year.
