(Post)summer in Scotland
New: Sailing and hiking in Scotland
Massive mountains, smoky whisky, kilts and bagpipes define our image of Scotland. Scotland with its combination of unspoiled natural beauty and wealth of culture has so much beauty to offer! That we are not the only ones in love with Scotland is proven by its election as the most beautiful country in the world according to the readers of the English travel guides Rough Guides. Would you like to discover this beautiful country with us by ship but also by walking? Our experienced walking and whisky guide Gerard Spaans will take you on a journey to remember. See Tallshipthalassa.nl/en.
There is just 1 very last cabin available for our 10-day whisky expedition, 9-19 August 2023. If interested, the advice is: hurry! Book here: Tallshipthalassa.nl/en.
Also in summer (from 19 to 26 August 2023) we are organising a beautiful whisky week, starting and ending in Oban. We will sail to Skye, Staffa, Islay, Port Ellen and, if the weather is favourable, back to Oban via Jura. Will you be joining us? For more info and bookings: Tallshipthalassa.nl/en.
