An unforgettable sailing holiday to Scotland....North Sea crossing, coastal sailing along England and Scotland, the Caledonian Canal, whiskey trip on a sailing ship to Islay, Jura, Mull. Sailtrip to Skye and Hebrides ...
Aboard the Steady; a tough steel staysail ketch with the look of a traditional sailer. 22 meters on deck, but inside spacious and comfortably equipped. Built as a charter ship in 1993 she can take groups of up to eight passengers. On deck the ship has plenty of space as well and the sails are easy to operate. In the spacious deck saloon with all round views is the navigation area with state of the art navigation and communication equipment. Below deck there is a spacious, well-equipped galley, another saloon with bar, 4 x 2-bed cabins and a bathroom. All cabins have heating and hot and cold running water. And some storage space.
Steady leaves in early May from Hoorn for her North Sea crossing to Scotland and a sailing trip along the English and Scottish coast. Via the Caledonian Canal the ship sails to the West Coast of Scotland, where the scenery is spectacular, and the weather as well. Most trips begin in Oban. From here she travels to Islay, Jura, Mull, Skye and the Outer Hebrides. In 2018 the Steady will cross to the South of Norway, by way of Orkney. She will set sail for Oslo and then on to Sweden, Denmark and from there via Kiel (Germany) back to the Netherlands. If you're interested, don't wait too long for the Oslo-Kiel trip is fully booked and for the Hoorn-Inverness trip only one place is left.
On the shore there's plenty to see and do; Scotland has a rich and colourful history, beautiful hikes, hospitable and friendly locals and great pubs where you can taste more whiskeys than there are days in the year.
