This was a fabulous 6 day cruise up the Caledonian Canal in Scotland with a total of 4 couples. Our barge was luxurious, the 4 person crew was simply the best, the food was awesome with lots of choices, and best of all, we really enjoyed the other passengers. Everything was taken care of including meals, wine, drinks, excursions, a deck to relax on, bicycles to ride during our down time, and wonderful trips to a wide variety of local destinations in a clean modern van.

We enjoyed castles, going through the locks, a Pict village site, several museums, the Glen Ord Distillery, battlefields, waterfalls, hiking trails and more castles. The view of Ben Nevis on day 1 was amazing. Our ports included Fort William, Fort Augustus and Inverness, all having access to multiple activities. We even had a private Scottish band on board one night, which we really enjoyed. This trip was fun and relaxing and never boring, as we became one happy group!

Many thanks to the entire crew and our new friends.

A Great Trip

Cabin Review

Cabin

We had the Cameron Suite, which is a little larger than the other 3 rooms on the Scottish Highlander. The room is big, with a private bathroom. It does not have large windows, just port holes. The room was very quiet. The room service was perfect, so we returned every day to find the room cleaned and made up, with plenty of towels, new shampoo, etc. Loved it!
