the Hebridean Princess

A royal salute for Hebridean Princess

The owners of the Hebridean Princess, the smallest luxury cruise ships in the world, has been granted a Royal Warrant by the Queen. This makes Hebridean Island Cruises the only travel company currently to hold such the prestigious award, which is given to people and businesses in recognition of service and excellence.

The Queen chartered Hebridean Princess in 2006 and again in 2010 for private family holidays around the islands of West Coast of Scotland. Furnished in traditional chintz and tartan, it is like a floating country house hotel for just 49 guests who are treated to 5 star all-inclusive hospitality. The cuisine is exceptional – fruit, eggs, kippers for breakfast, lavish lunch, afternoon tea, canapés and cocktails and gourmet dinners featuring langoustine, Colonsay oysters, Inverawe smoked salmon, lamb, venison, Isle of Mull cheese.

The ship has also been presented with the 2012 Grand Award for Best Cruise by Andrew Harper’s Hideaway Report, the international luxury travel magazine. Cruise itineraries around the Scottish Islands focus on wildlife, castles, history and heritage. While every cruise is a foodie journey, a speciality itinerary is the forthcoming Gastronomic Tour of Skye, departing Oban on 22 June, visiting Isle of Skye Oyster Farm, Talisker Distillery and two famous Skye restaurants, the Three Chimneys and Kinloch Lodge.
