We spent a week exploring the coast of Mull and nearby lochs. The trip included a half day tour of Mull in a min-bus with an excellent knowledgeable guide who managed to find us some sea eagles. The boat was small but comfortable. 6 en-suite cabins with 10 guests in all, catered for by 4 crew who could not have been more helpful or more fun. During the day we would be put ashore by tender to explore eg Iona, Fingal's Cave, Castle Duart, or for a walk, but could stay on board if preferred. At Tobermory we were alongside the pontoon so could come and go as we wished. Food was excellent, the highlight for me being the mussels taken straight out of the sea in Loch Spelve and served half an hour later in a cream sauce for dinner (with the most delicious boat-made chips). The chef managed to satisfy everyone's food preferences. There was a good selection at breakfast. Mid-morning coffee came with home-made biscuits. Lunch was normally soup and home-made bread or pasta or cold meats with salad. Fruit was freely available. At 4pm we had tea/coffee and home-made cake. Dinner consisted of canapes followed by (on alternate days) starter and main course or main course and sweet, then a selection of Scottish cheeses (which were a revelation) and chocolates, accompanied by more wine than we could manage to drink. After dinner we played games or watched a DVD or read or just chatted. This is a particularly good holiday for solo travellers. 2 double cabins are reserved for singles at no extra cost. My group was 4 couples (3 UK and one US) and one solo like me. They were great company but there is plenty of space on board to spread out including the wheelhouse which was my location of choice while we were sailing. Best position for spotting porpoises and seals. I will certainly be going again, probably on one of the longer cruises to the more distant islands of the Hebrides. Read Less

Celebrating a friends 70th Birthday - it was a private charter A Welcome Pack was received well before the trip with lots of information contained within it - a follow up call to ensure we had received it and did we have any questions There was an allocated meeting point which served refreshments prior to us embarking - our luggage was transferred to our cabins on board On board we were welcomed by the crew who introduced themselves and gave us information about the boat including any safety issues. The Captain then discussed with our hosts the proposed plans for the following days. Crew - four in total including the Captain. They worked as a great team, they worked hard were very approachable and knowledgeable plus they entertained us with a musical evening Food - superb, beautifully planned and cooked meals using local produce wherever possible. Home made bread, rolls, scones and biscuits that were delicious. Breakfasts that were absolutely worth getting up for. A beautifully set table especially for the evening meal. A good selection of wines - a more than adequate bar. They take note of any dietary requirements Cabins - good colour scheme, excellent linen, good sized comfortable double bed, local toiletries, good sized wardrobe, soft good sized towels Some things to be aware of - You cannot do anything about the weather When you go on shore you travel on a small tender - the crew members who accompany you will look after you If you are not on a private charter then you should be prepared to socialise with new people This trip was on my “bucket list” and it exceeded all my expectations it was wonderful. We had good weather so we have been able to share not only great memories but some wonderful sunsets. Read Less

this trip was to celebrate a special birthday with friends. We chartered the boat for four days and three nights and sailed around Mull taking in Tobermory, Iona and Staffa. There were many highlights but one that stands out was taking the tender right into Fingal's cave in Staffa. we wee lucky with the weather but our Captain Neil knows the area like the back of his hand and chose moorings that meant we were blessed with super sunrises and wonderful sunsets. the cabins were well furnished and clean ( the Glen Sheil is the newest in the Majestic fleet) and the food was excellent. Our chef prepared meals that were of the right portions and they were of super quality. The crew, just four, multitasked throughout and they were so accommodating thus adding to the trip. All in all a wonderful few days at sea. It does help when the passengers all knew each other but that doesn't take away the thought and preparation that Majestic put into the whole experience.

This is my fifth trip with The Majestic Line and it was even better than ever. The Glen Shiel is the newest boat in their fleet and is designed with comfort and practicality in mind. Nothing is left to chance (apart from the weather, but hey it’s Scotland! ) with meticulous service from booking through to disembarkation. The crew are professional, efficient and friendly. Fellow passengers are generally a group of interesting people from all walks of life and I have always found it a delight to spend time with them. On this occasion we were 9. Apart from the beautiful and wild Scottish scenery and our interesting trips ashore. the highlight for me was the cuisine which could not have been bettered. Our chef, Mike, excelled himself by providing a varied, wholesome and impressive menu each day for 10days. For a single person this is an ideal trip with no additional supplements, excellent company and wonderful customer service From start to finish. Can’t wait for my next trip. Read Less

The Majestic Line has three vessels that sail on the west coast of Scotland. We discovered the cruise on the internet and with a little apprehension we booked a six night cruise leaving from Oban, Scotland, to the Isle of Skye. We (five of us in our family) were very pleasantly surprised. The scenery was gorgeous, the portages (we anchor and tender in) were awesome, the crew was extremely attentive. And...the food was excellent. On the Glen Massan as well as the Glen Tarsan there are six cabins with a maximum of then passengers. The relaxed atmosphere and camaraderie among the crew and passengers is something difficult to find on other larger cruises. Generally all meals are served while anchored in some gorgeous Loch to enjoy the scenery while dining. In most cases, the shore trips are leisurely timed for however long the passengers wished. (This was particularly pleasant for my daughter and me; on the large cruise ships we were usually running on board at the last minute, praying we wouldn't get left behind.) The Majestic Line organization is a group of fantastic people. We were so pleased with our trip in 2016 aboard the Glen Massan, that we booked another cruise this past August on the Glen Tarsan--enjoyable as well. Read Less
