The Scottish West Coast and the islands of the Hebrides are
as spectacular as the wildlife that inhabits them. There is
no better way to visit than from the sea.
Join us for exhilarating Scottish sailing as we explore aboard
our pedigree Oyster yacht
which combines comfort with proven sailing ability.
Discover deep sea lochs, dramatic mountains, puffins, dolphins,
whales or eagles and, at the end of the day, good food and like-minded
company in one of the many secluded anchorages.

Whatever your age or experience, whether looking for a relaxing
sailing holiday in Scotland cruising between islands, an approved
RYA sailing course, a concentrated week of mile building in
the Outer Hebrides, a short break, or more adventurous sailing
to St. Kilda, Orkney,
Fair Isle, Shetland, Faroes
and Norway, you will find something
to suit you.
We now offer sail/climb and sail/ski holidays on the Norwegian west coast on a brand new 43ft Ovni (Jon, the owner/skipper, labels the concept “sailing with mountain boots”). The Ovni is built in Aluminium and is favoured by high latitude sailors. She also has a lifting keel and can creep into shallow anchorages and beaches.
With Jon you can join a sailing trip on Norway’s west coast or in the Lofoten Islands, north of the Arctic circle or even further north to the ice fields of Svalbad. Even more adventurous guests can sail to out-of-the-way locations and ski or climb with guides in some of the most dramatic landscapes in Europe. In 2012 we will once again be sailing our Oyster yacht, Stormdancer, to the Faroe Islands with a long passage each way and some time to enjoy the scenery and wildlife of this remarkable and seldom visited group of remote islands. If you would like to join us, details for 2012 are posted on the Programme page.
