ABOVE:  A Majestic Line ship (converted from a wooden fishing vessel) strikes a reflective pose while cruising along the coastline of South West Scotland.

photoThe Majestic Line is different from other cruise lines profiled in this guide: It has two small vintage wooden ships, carries a maximum of 11 passengers in half  a dozen cabins, and cruises along the coast of Argyll and the Inner Hebrides in Scotland.

photoThree- and six-night cruises run weekly from spring through fall, departing from small Scottish ports that can be reached by public transportion or private car. (In 2015 and 2016, Majestic will also offer a 13-night "Outer Hebrides Explorer" voyage from Oban.)

 Cabins have double or twin beds, and two cabins on each cruise are available for single travelers without payment of a supplement. Fares include meals, wine, and shore excursions. A whole-boat charter is another option, if you can get 10 friends to join you on for a cruise on Majestic Line ship.

If you'd like a saltwater cruise experience with the kind of intimacy that you might find on a barge or canal-boat cruise, The Majestic Line may be your cup of Scottish tea.
