The National Trust for Scotland is offering what could be the perfect cruise for whisky fans this “whisky month” of May, as a whisky cruise sets sail in Scotland as part of Scotland’s Year of Food and Drink.
From 14 – 21 May, the Trust sets sail on the latest of its popular ‘cultural cruising’ voyages. The delightful Pearl II cruise ship is the vessel for this week, featuring the best of Scottish scenery, music and, of course, food. The ship’s excellent chefs prepare delicious high-quality cuisine, often using local ingredients sourced at the varied ports of call.
To coincide with Whisky Month, this bespoke voyage offers the chance to visit Talisker Distillery on the Isle of Skye which produces the much-celebrated peaty malt, Oban where the town grew up around the distillery and the brand new Isle of Harris Distillery in Tarbert. Excursions on offer at various ports will include calls at local eateries to sample home cooking made from local produce.
The itinerary includes calls at Oban, St Kilda, Harris and Skye, starting and finishing from Greenock. On board breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner and a late night buffet are included daily.
