Head to the pretty Dunstaffnage marina near Oban in Scotland and you’ll find Seahorse II, an 82 foot steel hulled small houseboat which is perfectly situated for exploring the highlands and islands of West Scotland. Sleeping up to 11 guests, a holiday on this beautiful ship, puts you at the heart of unspoilt coastlines and among pristine environments. Beautiful landscapes and plentiful wildlife abound, this is a wonderful holiday for all the family.
Living right on the water on our quirky small ships allows you the chance to enjoy the sea and the marine environment, whilst having the chance to see lots of Scottish wildlife. Our three quirky small ships are the ex-tall ship St Hilda (maximum 6 people), the ex-Norwegian ferry Seahorse II (maximum 11 people) and the ex-cruising lifeboat Gemini Explorer (maximum 8 people). All of our vessels have been converted to ensure that you will have a unique self-catering experience both in comfort and style in an authentic small ship environment. Please note that with our self-catering option there is no crew aboard and the vessels are not setting sail. From April to October we also offer small ship cruising and wildlife holidays to the Inner and Outer Hebrides, please enquire for info.
This location offers you a chance to explore the very best of the Hebrides and Argyll, and you won’t be disappointed by your beautiful surroundings. Oban is the gateway to the Hebridean isles and from your starting point you will have the opportunity to visit local islands, explore beautiful coastline and beaches, go fly fishing, take wildlife tours, whisky tasting, visit castles and play golf. The youngsters in the group will especially enjoy fishing, kayaking, swimming, snorkelling and rock pooling.
Dunstaffnage Marina is three miles north of Oban and is easy to reach either by car or by public transport. If arriving by car, directions and marina parking instructions will be provided on booking. From Glasgow, you can take a train or a bus to Oban (3 hours).
