Hebridean Maintaining Royal Fever

With the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee still fresh in the mind, Hebridean Island Cruises is continuing to celebrate all things royal this summer.

Guests on board the nine-night 'North to Orkney' and 'Home From The North' cruises will pay a special visit to The Queen Mother’s former holiday home, the Castle and Gardens of Mey, situated on the north coast of Caithness.

Guests can follow in The Queen’s royal footsteps as the ship calls at Scrabster – the port of choice when The Queen and her family visited the Castle of Mey aboard the former Royal Yacht Britannia every August. 

North to Orkney costs from £4,800 per person (based on two people sharing an outside cabin), departing from Oban and calling at Gairloch, Loch Eriboll, Scrabster, Kirkwall, Stronsay, Papa Westray, Westray, Stromness, Helmsdale and Invergordon. Price based on a June 27 departure. 

Home From The North costs from £3,440 per person (based on two people sharing an inside cabin), departing from Invergordon and calling at Helmsdale, Kirkwall, Skara Brae, Scrabster, Loch Eriboll, Stornoway, Skye, Rum, Glenmore and Oban. Priced based on a July 15 departure.

Prices also include all meals, alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, shore excursions and gratuities and all relevant cruise taxes/fees, free parking and transfers to ship or domestic flights/train travel.
