Tourism Scotland - Sail Scotland

Sail Scotland

Yacht Charter
Chartering is a cost-effective way of enjoying sailing in a wide variety of locations, without either the expense of owning a yacht, or the cost in time of getting to places remote from one's home port.

Scotland's many yacht charter operations offer superb choices in location and yacht type, as they range from the simple bareboat option for you and friends or family to enjoy, to the luxury of skippered charter aboard an excellent selection of craft ranging from classic to modern.

You will see whether your tastes and interests are power or sail, self-sail or skippered, in sheltered or more demanding waters, historic craft, modern 'state of the art' yachts, power boats or special interest cruising to remote places like St Kilda or the Flannan Isles, they can catered for.

First Steps
Cruising in Scotland is not all tough, demanding sailing - indeed many areas are ideal for the relative beginner. Pilotage is straightforward, tides are no stronger than in, say, the Solent, there is little shipping, and fog is rare. There is much published information about cruising in Scottish waters, which makes forward planning and day to day pilotage a pleasure. Admiralty and Imray charts cover Scotland in the greatest detail, and either Clyde Cruising Club Sailing Directions or Imray's Yachtsman's Pilot Series will provide complete and detailed information on virtually every anchorage, harbour and stretch of water.

Add to this the invaluable Welcome Ashore Booklet produced by Sail Scotland and your 'required reading' is complete.

Whether you have progressed through power or sail cruising school to bareboat charter, or have sufficient past experience to satisfy charterers' requirements, the Sail Scotland brochure will provide the right boat in the right place for your next holiday afloat.

Sail Scotland

World Class
Scotland's cruising grounds are unspoiled, if that is not too simple a word to convey the unique combination of a land and seascape virtually untouched by man.

Even the sheltered lochs of the Firth of Clyde are relatively unspoiled, and the majestic west coast, with Skye and the Hebrides, offers the cruising sailor the ultimate in scenery and wildlife.

This environment is one of peace and quiet, of empty anchorage's, of clear clean water, of long summer evenings when it barely gets dark at all. It is one you will not want to miss. You cannot truly appreciate the magic until you come and try it.
