Sail-World.com : Scotland's Malts Cruise - Highland and island adventure
Scotland's Malts Cruise - Highland and island adventure

'Malts Cruise - the Old Forge Pub garden'    .

Cruising Scotland at the height of summer - what an idyllic thought! - but it could be real if you take the opportunity. World Cruising Club's Malts Cruise 2012 will start from Oban on 7 July and finish in Tobermory on 20 July. If you need to charter a boat for your Malts Cruise, there are several good charter companies in the west of Scotland. Bareboat and skippered options are available.

The Malts Cruise 2012 sets sail on 8 July with a parade around Oban Bay, before exploring the lochs and islands of Scotland's west coast and finishing with a traditional ceilidh on 19 July in Tobermory on the Isle of Mull.

Lots to See and Do:
With free time to set your own itinerary, and rendezvous in beautiful locations like Tobermory, Rum, Loch Harport and Plockton, the Malts Cruise suits both free spirits and those looking for a cruise in company.

Social activities ashore include beach barbecues with local specialities, crew suppers, ceilidh dancing, an eagle-spotting walk, guided tour of a castle and a real chance to meet the locals and understand a little of the wildlife and culture of the region.

Malts Cruise - anchored in Loch Scavaig -  .. .  
The northerly route will allow the boats to circumnavigate the rugged and romantic Isle of Skye, as well as visiting the Small Isles, Loch Scavaig, Loch Gairloch, Kyle Rhea, Loch Nevis, Mallaig and in Inverie, home to the most remote pub in Britain!

The Malt Whisky theme:
The Malts Cruise is more than a sightseeing tour; it is an opportunity to discover the connections between the landscape and the region's most famous export - malt whisky. The cruise includes complementary visits to Oban, Tobermory and Talisker distilleries to see how the whiskies are made, and to try a dram to two! A 'roving nose' will accompany the fleet, and in wild and beautiful anchorages will introduce the participants to the elements of good malt whisky through nosings (tastings) of different whiskies.

How to Join:
Bring your own boat, or charter locally - there are skippered and bareboat charters available. All types of boat are welcome, the only requirement is that they be suitable for the local conditions. Discounts for the Caledonian Canal are available for Malts Cruise participants making the transit either way.
Places on the cruise are strictly limited in order to maintain seclusion in the more remote anchorages. For more information see www.worldcruising.com/maltscruise or email mail@worldcruising.com
