    In our line-up you’ll find gentle inland waterways, beautiful river trips, spectacular loch adventures, working ships and even an offshore fort if you’re looking for a night away with a difference. And if you can’t make your mind up, then how about a 12-night voyage around the entire British coast on a big luxury liner? We like to think we have every boating holiday covered.

    A word about ‘driving’ your own boat – and living aboard. The days of cold, leaky cabins with no luxuries or mod-cons have gone, you’ll be pleased to hear. Today’s boating holiday vessels are easy to steer and moor, and very comfortable, too. Expect Jacuzzi baths, hot tubs, WiFi – all sorts of creature comforts that will make your break a real pleasure.

    So do enjoy browsing our selection of boating holidays – and get ready to step on board for a wonderful, relaxing break…

    Loch Ness Highland adventure

    Step aboard the maginficent Torridon class cabin cruiser, the Pride of the Caley Cruisers fleet, and enjoy a week-long adventure that takes in the very finest Scottish Highland scenery. Torridon is a stunning new vessel, fitted out with two master double cabins (each with electric flush toilet and shower en-suite), and also a side cabin with twin bunks.

    The cruising area really is stunning. From your start point at Inverness, you’ll steam out onto magnificent Loch Ness. At its south-western end is pretty Fort Augustus, followed by some lovely intimate stretches as you head across Loch Oich and Loch Lochy. You’ll find plenty of places to moor, great food and drink along the way and a real sense of achievement as you build experience and appreciate the quality of this Highland holiday experience. Better still, all the locks are electrically operated and have keepers, so you’ll be well looked after and will have a bare minimum of physical effort.

    On board you?ll find a 32″ flat screen TV with DVD player in one saloon, a second 24″ TV with DVD player in the aft cabin, as well as onboard WiFi full-size fridge, toaster and microwave.

    A week on a Torridon-class cruiser costs £2321 in June with Caley Cruisers (01463 236328,
