Starting from Wick, we will be aiming to sail south-west along the Moray Firth towards Inverness with time to visit some anchorages around Golspie, Dornoch and Invergordon.
At Inverness we enter the Caledonian Canal and then head through Loch Ness and Loch Lochy before descending down Neptunes staircase to Corpach (Fort William) and Loch Linnhe – a distance of 66 miles. Hopefully there will be opportunities for some fresh water sailing amongst the Great Glen mountains.
At Corpach, its then two days sailing south to Oban and the end of the delivery. Glencoe is an option for anchoring one night on this final leg.
The voyage is an unique opportunity to combine the North sea with fresh water lochs and magnificent mountain scenery.
Price includes onboard accommodation, canal fee, food, fuel, berthing fees, waterproofs, equipment and instruction.Equipment and Kit Information
