REVIEW

We had a delightful trip on the Glen Tarsan. The crew were amazing — charming, helpful, efficient — and a jar of vegemite appeared for breakfast on the second day which made two Aussies feel pretty special.

The only reason the cabins only rate a 4 is that the bathroom was very small — however the beds were very comfortable and warm.  To be honest we spent all day sitting upstairs chatting, eating, drinking coffee and watching the world go by so a small cabin didn’t matter at all.

The food was delicious and we loved sitting at the large table and getting to know out fellow travellers.

I will never forget waking up in the silence of Loch a Choire on our first morning with soft mist sitting on the hills and just the sound of waves lapping against the wee boat.

WE CAME A LONG, LONG WAY TO DO THIS CRUISE AND IT SURPASSED OUR EXPECTATIONS.

In fact we enjoyed our cruise so much that we are coming back to Scotland next year — this time to cruise around Skye and the Small Isles in one of the bigger boats — The Glen Etive.

    Thank you Janine for your review and how you handled talking about the small cabin. The bottom line is, of course, your comment about a desire to return to Majestic Line.

    I have made two small ship cruises amongst the Scottish Isles plus several itineraries using the CalMac ferries, and other small ships in Orkney and Shetland. I want to keep returning to Scotland.
