Hebridean Island Cruises’ Lord of the Highlands is ready to set sail after undergoing a major refurbishment.

The 40-passenger vessel was remodelled and renovated by Spanish naval design and architecture firm Oliver Design.

The project involved converting the 400-seat passenger ferry, designed to serve an eight-mile passage between the Turkish port of Çesme and the Greek island of Chios, into a luxury cruise ship that will travel through the lochs of the Scottish Highlands and Orkney Islands.


Lord of the Highlands will make its inaugural sailing next spring, when it operates a selection of five and seven-night sailings on the Caledonian Canal, Great Glen and the Highlands and Islands of Scotland between April and October, 2022.

Prices for the five-night ‘Taste of the Highlands and Caledonian Tapestry’ itineraries start at £2,390 per person.

The seven-night ‘Highland Waterways Discovery and Caledonian Canal Explorer’ cruises are priced at £3,850 per person.
