Explore the Scottish Isles in SIX STAR luxury

Scenic Luxury Cruises & Tours has grown over its 31-year history to include award-winning, all-inclusive escorted tours that take participants to many of the world’s most fascinating destinations and, since 2008, truly all-inclusive, five-star river cruises in Europe, SE Asia, Russia, and Egypt on its 15 Space-Ships. In 2019, Scenic introduced the world’s first Discovery Yacht, the 228-guest Scenic Eclipse to be joined by a sister ship
– Scenic Eclipse II.

Discover the wild and rugged network of Scottish islands on the edge of the Atlantic, whist sailing from Bergen to Dublin on Scenic Eclipse, taking in pristine beaches, picturesque harbours, and indigenous wildlife.

Along the way learning about ancient Norse work culture whilst hiking around the cliffs of Sumburgh, then head into Lerwick and discover the treasures of Orkney, including the Ring of Brodgar, Skara Brae, and partake in a local beer tasting. Then there’s a hike through Stornoway’s sheltered harbour in search for medieval castles, Portree’s brightly painted waterfront houses, Gaelic culture, and rugged coastlines with the on-board naturalist. 

There’s a photography tour in Tobermory on the Isle of Mull, where you’ll be shown how to capture the beauty of the stunning port; and if dancing is your thing you’ll be immersed in Scottish dance traditions with an exclusive Scottish Ceilidh – then learn the moves from local highland dancers. Should the outdoors be what you’re looking to go in search of wildlife on a guided nature walk of Iona’s beautiful sandy beaches.
