Quirky self-catering in the Inner Hebrides

Sadly, because, of Coronavirus, the St Hilda team have not been able to put to sea this year and explore the wonderful isles of western Scotland. However, they have come up with an exciting idea to turn their three unique small ships into self-catering vessels.

The ships are berthed in Dunstaffnage Marina, a superb marina in an idyllic location, just three miles north of Oban and surrounded by the mountains of Mull and Morvern. Nearby Oban is a bustling little ferry port and is the gateway to the Hebridean isles. You can visit local islands, take wildlife tours, sample the local whisky, explore beautiful sandy beaches, admire ancient castles, fly-fish for trout on the local lochs and play picturesque and challenging golf courses. Take an Oban Walking Tour with local expert Michelle at Imagine Alba, or let her create self drive day tour itineraries to make the most of your visit.


The three quirky small ships are the ex-tall ship St Hilda (maximum 6 people), the ex-Norwegian ferry Seahorse II (maximum 11 people) and the ex-cruising lifeboat Gemini Explorer (maximum 8 people). All of the vessels have been converted to ensure that you will have a unique self-catering experience both in comfort and style in an authentic small ship environment. Christophe and Julie look forward to welcoming you!

St Hilda - £204 per vessel per night.
