UK, Scotland and Ireland
Whiskey, Surfing, Deserted Coves and Chocolate Box Villages.
Chartering a luxury classic yacht in the UK and Ireland offers a charming and exhilarating yacht adventure full of stunning natural landscapes, wonderful sailing conditions and picturesque local charm in abundance.
For world class culture, theatres, and sophisticated dining take a day trip to London or take in the quintessentially British fishing villages and seaside towns in Devon and Cornwall. Moore up for an evening in Salcombe or Dartmouth and venture ashore for a pint of bitter and a dinner of freshly caught fish and chips. Rise early the next day for walk along the UKs green and rugged coastline before donning your wetsuit and venturing in for a surf lesson.
Explore the long wild west coast of Ireland on your luxury yacht charter and explore the miles of picture perfect coastline between Cork, the windswept Kerry Coast and Galway. If starting your Irish sailing adventure in Cork make sure you take time to visit Blarney Castle to kiss the ‘Blarney Stone’ built into its battlements, where legend has it that kissing the stone endows the kisser with the gift of the gab for life.
Venture west and as dusk falls take your kayak or stand up paddle-board and paddle out onto Lough Hyne or Castlehaven Bay and watch as bioluminescent plankton fizzes into life beneath your feet. For a more unique experience why not time your Irish yacht charter to coincide with the Irish Bog Snorkelling Championship in September. This bonkers competition sees people from all over the world strap on a pair of goggles and snorkel their way down a 60m murky bog water trail.
Further North, sail up to the West Coast of Scotland and enjoy some of the finest sailing in Europe. Follow the wind and explore the the hundreds of bay islands, long deserted sandy beaches and fjord-like lochs which make the west coast of Scotland one of the most spectacular places to sail in the world.
Sail up the Firth of Clyde and visit the Neolithic Machrie Moor Stone Circles on the Isle of Arran or venture inland and savour a brisk hike around Loch Lomond and through the Trossachs National Park. Of course no Scottish Sailing holiday would be complete without sampling some of the worlds finest single malt whiskeys. Set your course to visit the distilleries in Islay, Jura, Oban, Arran and Campbeltown and stock up with single malts to enjoy when you return home to regale friends and family with the tales of your once in a lifetime luxury Scottish sailing adventure.
