During a 6-day trip on a traditional 75-year old wooden yacht, you can explore the Small Isles scattered in the scenic Inner Hebrides in west Scotland. The trip even includes a visit to the smallest of the Small Isles—Muck. You will be able to see a unique Scottish castle situated in the wild Rum isle, drink beer in the most remote pub in Scotland found in Knoydart, visit Eilean Shona which literally means "beautiful island," and other equally pretty islands such as Canna, Eigg, Arran and Skye boasting numerous fjord-like lochs, coves, and mountains. While sailing from one island to another, you may encounter wonderful Scottish wildlife including​ whales, dolphins, sharks, and innumerable birds.
