Thomas Telford Deck
Thomas Telford is regarded as one of Scotland’s finest engineers and built many of the roads and bridges you may see on your Scottish travels. The Thomas Telford Deck hosts the Sir Walter Scott Lounge and Bar, the David Livingstone Lounge and Library. Two viewing terraces are at the front and rear of the ship.
Sir Walter Scott Lounge
For smaller, intimate gatherings, the Sir Walter Scott lounge is ideal. Interestingly, it is named after one of Scotland’s most beloved novelists. And it’s here that you can get together with friends, old and new, and get lost in chat. With stunning panoramic views, nothing will be missed and there will always be something to talk about. The lounge sits at the front of the ship, with the bar nearby. It’s a wonderful place to enjoy the views with a glass of wine.
My husband and I have just returned from a most enjoyable cruise on the Lord of the Glens. We cannot speak highly enough of our experience on board. The organisation was splendid and the crew members, led by Brian, were so attentive and friendly. One further comment, which I should have written on the comments sheet, is how much I appreciated the half portions on the menu. This enabled me to enjoy every course at lunch and dinner without missing out! With all good wishes for continued success.
David Livingstone Lounge and Library
Towards the rear of the ship is the David Livingstone Lounge and Library. Here is a good place to come for quiet contemplation and appreciation of the landscape. Additionally, nightly recaps of the day’s activities are given here. So everyone gets together to relive the fun. Furthermore, there is a small library which can be perused at leisure. And who knows what words of wisdom can be found in these books? Did you know that David Livingstone was one of Scotland’s most famous and fearless adventurers, known for seeking out the source of the River Nile. An inspiring fellow for everyone who takes to the waters.
There is a Scottish feel to the lounges on Lord of the Glens. And each one boasts a traditional style of decoration. Light fittings are from the Nord Norge whilst some seating also includes 1929 Riviera armchairs from the legendary Cote d’Azur Express. Interestingly, this was a famous luxury train that worked throughout the 1930s in France. And the class and style of this fits in perfectly on Lord of the Glens.
