Whisky distilleries

When it comes to tasting Scotland’s finest whiskies, what better way to arrive at an island distillery than under sail? Learn about the legends and history of your favourite malts: savour a few drams at a nosing session, or take a distillery tour. From Talisker on Skye to Bruichladdich on Islay there are numerous destinations to choose from.

Golf holidays in Scotland

Scotland is renowned as the “Home of Golf” and from our base near Oban, there are a number of coastal and island courses within easy reach. For a unique experience, why not combine a sailing holiday with a golfing holiday and play on some of Scotland’s most scenic fairways.
