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 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.
