Scottish Sailing Holidays

Book your activity holiday with Europe's No.1 Adventure Travel Company - Wilderness Scotland

Discover the joys of sailing holidays in Scotland as you explore the west coast and islands by yacht.

We sail and explore by day and stay on the yachts overnight, often moored in remote wilderness anchorages.

These trips combine sailing and gentle walking as a great way to explore Scotland’s islands and coast. Although we have outline itineraries, these are flexible, allowing you to follow the best weather and winds.

Our classic sailing yacht is a beautifully restored traditional wooden gaff cutter, so provides a memorable way to island hop. Our expert skipper will have you at the helm in no time, while the first mate / chef will soon be your best friend! On trips which involve walking on the islands, we also have an expert and qualified walking guide on board.

We also arrange private charters so you can build the perfect sailing journey. We have access to a wide range of yachts for private charter, including a luxury Swan 68 for the ultimate sailing charter in Scotland. Visit our tailor made page for details and to contact us for a private charter.

Sailing and Walking - Knoydart, Skye & The Small Isles
My son and I were so pleased with the entire experience. I would not suggest this trip for those unaccustomed to long hikes and wet weather. Proper gear is a must to ensure enjoyment of the experience.

Sailing and Walking - Knoydart, Skye & The Small Isles
Excellent covered everything in the itinerary, fed us extremely well and all the crew very friendly. If there had been less rain and more sunshine it would be very close to perfection.

What is a Scottish Summer Like?

Posted on Sep 23, 2016 by Meike van Krimpen

Summer in Scotland

Although the weather in Scotland can become glorious as early as the end of April, summer does not really kick-off till June when the weather is consistently mild for the next four months.
