Malts Cruise

The Malts Cruise is a two week summer sailing voyage combining exceptional cruising, beautiful scenery and amazing wildlife with a journey of discovery into the world of Scottish single malt whisky.
A mix of cruising in company and solo exploration is spiced with social events ashore and rendezvous afloat. Explore remote lochs, discover hidden anchorages and revel in the mountain scenery. Whether sharing a dram in the cockpit, enjoying the local seafood or joining a village hall ceilidh, the Malts Cruise is full of opportunities to meet fellow cruisers and locals. Chartering is a popular option, and there are good air, road and rail links. Visit a distillery in the morning and see basking sharks in the afternoon - all in a day on the Malts Cruise.
