Itinerary 

Muirtown to Banavie

Day 1, Sunday
We meet you at the designated meeting place and transfer to Scottish Highlander moored at Muirtown near Inverness. Champagne welcome followed by a toast to the newly married couple. Whilst you unpack in your exclusive double suite enjoy a complimentary bottle of champagne on ice. A short evening cruise along the heather-lined canal, with only sheep for company, to the winding hole for your first romantic, candlelit dinner on board.

Day 2, Monday
This morning, we visit the 14th century fairytale Cawdor Castle* immortalised by Shakespeare with Macbeth, housing a superb collection of tapestries, pictures and furniture with beautiful landscaped gardens. We also visit Culloden Moor, site of the last battle on British soil in 1746. After lunch we cruise Loch Dochfour to Fort Augustus anchoring for tea beneath Urquhart Castle, then cruise the south shore of the mysterious Loch Ness to moor near Fort Augustus Abbey a romantic setting for Champagne cocktails before dinner on board.

Day 3, Tuesday
After breakfast, we cruise up the staircase of five locks through the village of Fort Augustus, which gives us plenty of time to shop and look around this pretty Caledonian gem. Lunch today is a luxury, romantic lock-side picnic for 2 with the local piper discreetly in attendance. After lunch we visit Urquhart Castle and Invermoriston Falls. Fort Augustus has a charming heather-laced 9 or 18 hole golf course, where the official green keepers are sheep! Later in the day, when available, we watch a sheepdog trial demonstration. You dine out tonight at a local restaurant where we have arranged for you to be seated at the best table.

Day 4, Wednesday
We leave Fort Augustus this morning and cruise to Cullochy Lock via Kytra. After lunch we drive through Glen Moriston and stunning highland countryside to romantic medieval Eilean Donan Castle, setting for the film Highlander. Eilean Donan Castle has an idyllic island setting with commanding views of three sea lochs and frequent sightings of otters, dolphins and the Isle of Skye. Following the abortive Jacobite rising of 1719, the ruins of the castle were abandoned for 200 years until the 20th century when a complete reconstruction was undertaken. Champagne cocktails before your romantic, candlelit dinner on board.

Day 5, Thursday
Leave Cullochy Lock for a morning cruise via two locks at Laggan, and through Lochs Oich and Lochy to Gairlochy. In the afternoon there is a chance to see either the World War II Commando memorial, the woollen mill at Spean Bridge, selling traditional knitwear and tweeds, or the Clan Cameron museum. Champagne cocktails before your candlelit dinner on board.

Day 6, Friday
Morning visit to the mystic battlefields of Glencoe. On the way back visit the Ben Nevis distillery for an insight into the secrets of the various stages of whisky preparation and taste a wee dram or two. In the afternoon we cruise to Banavie and Neptune’s Staircase, a flight of eight locks that is a spectacular feat of engineering. Farewell Captain’s Dinner on board.

Day 7, Saturday
Disembark after a hearty Scottish breakfast for their transfer back to the designated drop off point by minibus.
