Inner Hebrides

Sailing along the Scottish Hebrides is a journey through landscapes of unrivalled beauty and wilderness. These archipelagos, scattered on the west coast of Scotland, captivate with their austerity and undisturbed beauty. But it's not just the landscapes that attract travellers from all over the world. Scotland is also the land of whiskey, and in the heart of the Hebrides there are some of the most famous distilleries of this noble drink. A visit to these places is not only an opportunity to taste excellent single malts, but also a journey through the history and tradition of this Scottish icon. The richness of Scotland's culture is also evident in meetings with local inhabitants, learning about their customs and legends, and experiencing their extraordinary hospitality. Whether you prefer the rough cliffs or the smooth tones of whisky, sailing through Scottish waters will always leave you with an unforgettable experience.

ISLAY

Islay is famous for its whiskey distilleries. In fact, Islay is one of the key whiskey-producing regions in Scotland; Islay whiskies are such an important part of Scotland's heritage (and economy) that they are protected by law. With eight distilleries covering just 400 km², Islay is a perfect holiday destination for whiskey lovers. You can visit all the distilleries and take a tour. Most people have one or two favourite Islay whiskeys in mind when visiting distilleries, but you can visit them all if you stay for a few days.

 

One of the things Islay whiskeys are famous for is the smoky flavour created by the peat smoke used during the barley drying process. The peat comes from Islay and has a unique chemical composition that makes Islay whiskey impossible to reproduce in any other distillery. The smokiest and peaty whiskeys can be found in the south of the island: Laphroaig, Lagavulin and Ardbeg. Islay's whiskeys are famous for their strong peaty aroma and that's exactly what most people love about them, but some people don't like that peaty taste, and the good news is that there are plenty of unpeated whiskeys out there if that's what you prefer. Bruichladdich and Bunnahabhain, for example, have amazing unpeated whiskeys.

JURA

Of all the islands in the west of Scotland, Jura, although one of the most beautiful, remains one of the most mysterious and least known. At almost 30 miles long and 7 miles wide, Jura is Argyll's third largest island and one of the more inaccessible British islands, requiring two vehicle ferries. There is only one road, which leads along the south and east coasts. The rest of the Jura is wild and rugged, accessible only to keen hikers, sea kayakers and mountain runners. For most visitors to the Jura it is: landscapes, history, wildlife and whiskey.

Jura whiskey is famous around the world for its nuanced notes of sweetness and smoke. There is only one distillery on the island, and they organize tours all year round, but reservations are required.

Once you have tasted the whiskey, take some time to explore the island of Jura. It is a beautiful place with its unique character. If you are a keen hiker, you can hike the three impressive mountains that make up the Paps of Jura.

Sailing a yacht in Scotland to explore beautiful landscapes and visit puffins

LUNGA

Lunga is one of the Treshnish Islands and is famous for, among other things, puffins and guillemots. It's easy to visit Lunga in an hour, but it's easy to stay longer to admire the magical puffin spectacle. They are so small and cute that they are completely unbothered by the sight of people watching them from a surprisingly close distance.

You can lie on your stomach on the grass of the cliffs and watch from eye level as they crawl in and out of the sea with mouths full of fish. Lunga is so beautiful that it's hard to believe it's real.

Visiting Isle of Mull during sailing holidays in Scotland

ISLE OF MULL

There are many exciting attractions on the Isle of Mull, and one of the most popular attractions is the bright harborside town of Tobermory. The historic port city is famous for its vibrant buildings of various colours that contrast with the surrounding nature in green, grey and brown.

In addition to its natural treasures, the island also has a rich history, evident in sites such as the Bronze Age stone circle at Loch Buie, various Iron Age remains and the mediaeval Duart Castle, the historic seat of the MacLean clan. Bird and whale watchers will also be in luck here, as guided wildlife tours can result in sightings of rare white-tailed eagles, puffins, and a variety of marine mammals.

OBAN

Oban, the largest town in Argyll & The Isles, is a stunning harbour with panoramic views of the surrounding mountains, lochs and islands. Known as the 'Gateway to the Isles', Oban is a hub for sailors sailing to the Hebridean islands.

Oban isn't just a place to stop off when travelling to the islands; it's worth visiting in itself. There are tons of things to do here, plenty of local shops, and gorgeous sunsets to enjoy. And of course you wouldn't want to miss another of its highlights, referred to by its other nickname: 'The Seafood Capital of Scotland'. Yes, with several award-winning restaurants and some of the freshest seafood you'll ever taste, Oban is a true foodie's delight.

Nestled beneath the steep cliffs in the heart of Oban is one of the oldest sources of single malt in Scotland: the Oban Distillery. You can take a tour of the distillery, ending with a tasting of 14-year-old single malt with crystallised ginger.

Aleksy
Duchnowski

I started my sailing adventure with inland cruises, exploring Masuria, which developed into a great passion for water, wind and the sailing lifestyle. The beginning of sea expeditions is primarily the Baltic Sea and the North Sea. It was the northern seas of Europe that shaped me as a sailor and as a person.

The last few years have been marked by warm waters of the Mediterranean Sea, Croatia has become a second home and sailing is a way of life.

After sailing over 40,000 nautical miles, I am very happy to pass on my knowledge and spread my passion for sailing.
