Imagine sailing around Scotland's beautiful Western Isles on a
classic 1930s yacht, which was once owned by Her Majesty The
Queen and Prince Philip from 1962 to 1969.
During July and August, the fully restored, 63 foot Royal
Racing Yacht Bloodhound is available for private
day sailing from Oban Marina around
Scotland's West Coast. This once in a lifetime experience is
perfect for sailing enthusiasts, private celebrations, corporate
incentives or team building.
Up to eight guests can enjoy sailing through the stunning
scenery of Scotland's West Coast, as well as the hospitality of the
Skipper and crew, some of whom are former HMY BRITANNIA Royal
Yachtsmen, or 'Yotties' as they are affectionately known.
Routes include: The Sound of Mull, passing Duart and Torosay
Castles; Ballachulish, passing the Isle of Lismore into Loch Linnhe
and past Port Appin; Jura, through the Sound of Kerrera, past
Easdale, the Isle of Seil, Isle of Luing and the Isle of Scarba.
And guests can choose to sit back and relax while on board, or help
the Ocean Master qualified Skipper and crew 'man the ropes'.
Hospitality is provided on board with pastries and bacon rolls
on arrival, a buffet lunch, soup and sandwiches, all made by the
Yotties, with tea and cake in the afternoon.
