Armadale is the starting and ending point of the cruise - located on the Sleat peninsula in the south of the Isle of Skye. Embarking a yacht will be an interesting experience - we get on board from the mainland by a large speedboat.

Embarkation / Disembarkation

The trip starts from Armadale - a popular anchorage at the southern end of the Isle of Skye. The boarding of yachts is possible from 17.00 on Saturday, but we only sail out on Sunday morning.

Bording is done by a speedboat, yacht is moored at the buoy.

The cruise ends on the following Saturday in the same place. Yachts should be vacated by 9 am on Saturday. We'll arrive to Armadale on Friday evening, so you can get off the yacht from then. You do not have to clean up your yacht, cleaning is included in the fees. All you need to do is take out the garbage and wash the dishes.

Getting to Skye

Flights to Scotland are very cheap. You can reach Glasgow or Edinburgh with Rayanair or Wizzair.

Either from Edinburgh or Glasgow you need to take an airport bus to city center and then take a local bus/train to Fort William. Here you change to bus going to Mallaig. In Mallaig take a local ferry (5 minutes) to Armadale.

It MIGHT sound complicated, but it is not, really. Scottish buses and trains are cheap and comfortable, and connections network is pretty dense. And Scotland is very beautiful, the views outside the window en route are amazing! Life is a journey, so enjoy the ride!

You can learn more here. And we'll mail you with more details just before the trip.

Weather in Scotland

August is one of the better months to visit Scotland. The temperatures are then highest (around 20-25 degrees), and the days mostly sunny. Of course, the United Kingdom is called the most rainy place in the world for a reason, but the summer is usually an exception to this - it's all other seasons that are rainy. What more, August is the time when the heather is beginning to bloom, which makes the Scottish landscapes even more beautiful!
