DAYS 2 to 6: Sailing
You will find some examples of stops you may make during your trip below. These examples are based on the past cruises. Indeed, the stops will depend on the weather and opportunities. Therefore, none of the stops below can be guaranteed.
The Hebrides archipelago includes around hundred islands and islets off the west coast of the Scottish mainland. They fall into two main groups: the Outer Hebrides (further out to sea) and the Inner Hebrides (closer to the coast), separated by the Minch Strait. Your cruise will allow you to discover several islands of the Inner Hebrides.
- Mull is the second largest island in the Inner Hebrides. Its main town, colourful Tobermory, has a distillery that produces single malt Scotch whisky and the Mull Museum. The Isle of Mull is also renowned as a lookout for rare wildlife such as white-tailed eagles, golden eagles, whales, red deer and many others.
- Tiree is known as the 'Hawaii of the North' since it enjoys a relatively high number of total hours of sunshine compared to the average for the UK. It is also popular with surfers due to its year-round waves from the Atlantic Ocean and North Sea. Its long white sandy beaches and turquoise waters make it feel like a paradise.
- Coll is known for its sandy beaches overlooked by impressive dunes, Breacachadh Castle and an extensive Royal Society for the Protection of Birds reserve, which is home to the rare corncrake.
- The Treshnish Isles is a small group of uninhabited islands on which nature reigns supreme. Enjoy the Lunga Island and its puffin colonies, or the mysterious island of Staffa, whose volcanic landscapes have inspired Jules Verne and Robert Louis Stevenson.
- Iona is a small island, sometimes called the "Santiago de Compostela" of the Scots, a true cradle of Christianity. You can visit its 13th century abbey and take advantage of its coastline to go for a walk, climb to the top of the island (only 100 metres above sea level) to admire the landscape.

To enter the UK, European travellers must have a valid passport or national identity card (in case they have a residency status in the UK).
Important: travellers with identity and travel documents that have been reported lost or stolen will have the document systematically withdrawn by the British authorities in charge of border control. It is imperative that you do not attempt to travel between France and the UK with a travel document that has been reported lost or stolen (and therefore invalidated).
Even after January 1st,2021, which marks the end of the transition period, it is still possible for EU citizens to enter the UK without a visa for a maximum of six months for tourist purposes.
This information is subject to change by the authorities of the country visited. It is not unusual for border crossing rules to change. We therefore strongly advise you to refer to official websites.
Nationals of non-EU countries should contact the consulate of their country of origin for information on formalities.
*Only residents benefiting from the United Kingdom's Withdrawal Agreement from the European Union, eligible for (pre)settled status, will be able to continue to use an identity card until 2025.
