Explore Scotland's coastline in style
Scotland is a small country yet, surrounded on three sides by water, it has over 6,000 miles of coastline, stunning white-sand beaches, craggy inlets and strong contemporary sailing culture.
For sailing on Scotland's west coast Luxury Scotland recommends Crinan Hotel for wonderful boat trips on some the finest cruising waters in the world. Crinan Hotel offers boat trips on the Sgarbh, a fully restored classic motorboat moored at Crinan right outside the hotel. This is the gateway to the Atlantic and the Scottish islands. Charters can be tailored to suit a wide range of itineraries and interests for up to 12 passengers during the day and 4 passengers for overnight charters. Fresh Scottish seafood and meals using local produce can be prepared by the hotel and served during your cruise.
Glenapp Castle has its own boat - an all-weather fully crewed RIB which can take guests on an exciting exploration of the spectacular scenery of the south-west coast of Scotland. These crystal clear waters are home to basking sharks, minke whales, dolphins, seals and a wide variety of birds. The islands in the Firth of Clyde are very accessible in Glenapp Castle's boat and offer a chance to experience what makes Scotland so unique - famous whisky distilleries, the unspoilt remote beaches, stunning golf courses and some of the world's most dramatic scenery.
