Historic Castles and Glorious Gardens

Star of the BBC Scotland series Lady Lairds, Joanna Macpherson, will be joining Hebridean Island Cruises’ (www.hebridean.co.uk / 01756 704 704) luxury cruise ship, Hebridean Princess, on the Historic Castles and Glorious Gardens cruise commencing on 20 June 2017.

The rich history of the deeply rooted region of the Highlands and Islands of Scotland is unwrapped with this seven-night cruise of stunning ancient castles and breath-taking, early summer gardens carried out in true Hebridean Princess style.  This spectacular itinerary culminates with a Champagne reception at Duart Castle, Isle of Mull, hosted by Sir Lachlan MacLean, Chieftain of the Clan MacLean.

Other highlights include one of the finest rhododendron gardens in Scotland at Colonsay House, the Benedictine Abbey on Iona and the subtropical garden at Inverewe.

Attadale Gardens will also be visited, where Joanna Macpherson moved almost 5 years ago with her husband Alec.  Attadale had belonged to her grandfather so she has always spent holidays there since a baby.

Joanna will give us an insight into the running of the Attadale Estate, the making of the Lady Lairds documentary and the organisation ‘Discover Scottish Gardens’, a network of gardens which have come together to promote their rich diversity, a number of which we will visit on this cruise.

The Historic Castles and Glorious Gardens cruise starts from £3,875 per person and departs from Oban (Scotland) on 20th June 2017 for 7 nights.

Prices includes transfers between Glasgow and the ship or free valet car parking in Oban, all meals, alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, shore excursions and gratuities and all relevant cruise taxes/fees.
