We had a wonderful week aboard the Scottish Highlander with Mick and the crew during the first week of June, 2017. Our cruising companions from the United States, New Zealand, and Australia were delightful and made for a fantastic week cruising the Caledonian Canal. Charlotte, our chef, made every meal a culinary delight. Pete, our tour guide, gave us complete historical descriptions of every place we visited and the places along the route. Steph, our hostess, was knowledgeable about the wines served and waited on us hand and foot catering to our every need. She also gave us restaurant recommendations in Inverness and Edinburgh for our time in Scotland after the barge cruise. Mick, our captain, welcomed us onto the bridge whenever we were cruising. We will remember this cruise with very fond memories event though the weather wasn't always agreeable. We experienced lots of clouds and some rain here and there, but we were prepared for it, and we still had a remarkable time aboard the Scottish Highlander. Read Less

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. Read Less
