Spirit of Scotland is a Deluxe category barge.
This barge is perfect for: Couples, Families, Groups of friends, Nature lovers, Whiskey connoisseurs, Historic interest, Golf.
We are delighted to announce the arrival of our new 12-passenger hotel barge “Spirit of Scotland”. She will cruise the Caledonian Canal and lochs of the Great Glen in the heart of the Scottish Highlands, starting June 4, 2017. One of the most stylishly-designed in the fleet, the three-level hotel barge evokes the spirit of the traditional steamers that plied the lochs of Scotland in bygone eras.
We’re absolutely thrilled to bring this elegant hotel barge to Scotland. A cruise aboard her encompasses the true ‘spirit’ of Scotland and is a special addition to our collection. It also means we now have a choice of two hotel barges in the region, with “Spirit of Scotland” complementing our existing vessel, the 8-passenger ‘Scottish Highlander’, with its more country house atmosphere.
Among the largest in our fleet, the Spirit of Scotland features three decks of living and entertainment space. The lower deck boasts six fully modern, air-conditioned staterooms, with en suite bathrooms and a choice of twin or double beds. The spacious middle deck features bright and spacious saloon and dining areas with picture windows, a bar and an integral forward wheelhouse that gives guests an unobstructed view of the route ahead.
Outside there is a sheltered deck with a covered dining terrace and a heated jacuzzi, while the full-length upper sundeck is the perfect place for relaxing and admiring the stunning Highlands scenery as the barge glides sedately along the Caledonian Canal and across mystical lochs.
