Join us for our annual Bucket List Sailing trip to St. Kilda, departing from Oban in 2019. Start the trip off when you join the yacht on Scotland’s glorious west coast. Perhaps you can enjoy the tranquil pace of an amazing train journey to join the yacht from Glasgow. With familiarisarion and safety briefs to start your adventure it won’t be long before we head out for some crew training on our Ocean sailing yacht. With a short day to start we will make our first Island stop. Final training done it will be all systems go for a cruise around the western Islands of Scotland.
Watching the weather carefully your skipper will make the decision on when it is best to head out into the North Atlantic to have the greatest chance to get ashore on the unseco dual world heritage site of St. Kilda. Weather permitting we will likely spend a night and day at Anchor allowing you to spend some time ashore in this amazing historical location.
