English cruise company, HP Shipping Ltd, has added a second luxury small ship to its operation having acquired the MV Lord of the Glens from the Magna Carta Steamship Company.
MV Lord of the Glens is an upmarket yacht that was inspired by the Royal Yacht Britannia. With a capacity of 27 passenger cabins, the four-deck vessel sails the waters of Scotland’s Caledonian Canal and its many locks, along with the sheltered waters and lochs around Scotland’s west coast.
Lord of the Glens will be chartered to Hebridean Island Cruises Ltd with operations and reservations for the vessel moved to Hebridean Island Cruises’ HQ in Skipton, North Yorkshire.
Chairman of HP Shipping and Hebridean Island Cruises, Roger Allard, said the Lord of the Glens is a “perfect fit for our portfolio and existing customer demographic.”
“‘Small is beautiful‘ is the Hebridean Island Cruises’ mantra and the Lord of the Glens can certainly boast of that accolade.”
“We are really fortunate to acquire the operation of this unique vessel, which will offer five- and seven-night cruises, commencing April 2021 along the beautiful Caledonian Canal, between Inverness and Kyle of Lochalsh including Loch Ness and Oban,” said Hebridean Island Cruises’ MD Ken Charleson.
“Advance bookings for 2021 are very strong and a number of cruises have been chartered to US and European tour operators. Lord of the Glens is a ship of similar size to our well-established and well-loved Hebridean Princess which carries a maximum of 50 guests.”
Hebridean Princess operates primarily on the west coast of Scotland.
