Traverse the Heart of the Highlands

At 150 feet in length and 34 feet wide, the vessel was designed to transit the network of locks and canals that cut through the heart of the Highlands. Constructed by Spanish craftsmen to exacting standards, the ship is designed to cope with the rigours of the sheltered waters of Scotland’s west coast and navigate the intricate confines of the canal with its 29 locks and 10 swing bridges.


The Royal Yacht Brittania inspired the redesign of Lord of the Glens. It helped define the look of the vessel, including its ‘Mauritius’ deep blue hull, complemented by an all-around band and resplendent eagle motifs all in gold. Inside, the ship is just as beautiful. It greets guests with a classical look, and a feeling of warmth and comfort. Guests will find rich hardwood finishes and Highland artwork throughout.


There are four passenger decks on Lord of the Glens. Each one has a window or portholes to enjoy the passing scenery. Cabins are throughout three decks. The upper deck houses the lounge, a well-stocked bar and a library and affords magnificent, panoramic views.


Food on board Lord of the Glens is freshly prepared using seasonal, locally sourced ingredients. This gives guests a taste Scotland on their voyage. The vessel’s team of experienced chefs make use of bountiful Scottish meats, fish and poultry. Meals are an invitation to dine among friends in the elegant Robert Louis Stevenson restaurant, where all-round picture windows afford the finest views as the scenery glides gently by.
