Scotland's Royal Majesty
All-Gay Cruise & Exploration 2021

June 14–26, 2021
MV Lord of the Highlands

We invite you to join Brand g Vacations for an exclusive and inclusive, 13-day all LGBT journey, exploring Scotland’s Royal Majesty. This all-gay cruise & tour offers a fascinating insight into Scotland’s history and its Royal connections past and present with unparalleled access to the former and current homes of the Her Majesty The Queen and Her Majesty The Queen Mother.

 

Scotland gay cruise

 

Following two nights in Inverness, enjoy a breathtaking 7-day luxury cruise from Kyle of Lochalsh to Inverness on board the Lord of the Highlands. See Scotland’s famous scenery and visit the islands of Eigg, Iona and Skye as well as the towns of Tobermory, Fort William and Laggan and sail on famous Loch Ness.

 

Edinburgh Scotland gay tour

 

Following the cruise, our exploration continues with three nights in Edinburgh. Here we tour Edinburgh castle, Holyrood Palace while taking in the famous Scottish atmosphere and culture. Our last night ends with a Royal Invitation to a luxury State farewell dinner onboard the Royal Yacht Britannia.

The emphasis on board is not on speed, but on style. The maximum number of passengers is 44, and at all times, progress is serene-to-steady, rather than rushed. We set the pace so that the views remain stunning.

 

Lord of the Highlands Scotland gay cruise

 

The Ship - Lord of the Highlands

Scotland’s highlands and coastline are both exceptionally beautiful but seeing them both on one cruise is impossible for cruise ships – but not the nimble Lord of the Highlands.

Newly commissioned, Lord of the Highlands will join her sister ship Lord of the Glens and embark on her inaugural voyage in 2020. Both luxury expedition vessels feature in the Lindblad and National Geographic portfolios.

 

Lord of the Highlands lounge

 

At just 150 feet, this elegant vessel can squeeze through the Caledonian Canal linking the North Sea to the Atlantic, but her design as a seafaring yacht means she can sail through the Atlantic with aplomb too.

It’s all done in grand style, the locks and lochs, the starkly beautiful islands of the Inner Hebrides all viewed from the comforts of a ship that feels like a small stately home. Lord of the Highlands features polished wood, teak decks, sumptuous fabrics and upholstery contribute to the cosy feel as much as the intimate size – there are just 21 mainly twin-bedded cabins, all well-appointed accommodating 42 guests.

 

Lord of the Highlands bar

 

The open top deck, with tables and chairs is a wonderful place to watch the glorious Scottish country and seascapes slip past; while the lounge and bar on board Lord of the Highlands provide all the warmth and welcome of a good country house hotel.

 

Lord of the Highlands Restaurant

 

Dining on Lord of the Highlands
Dining on board Lord of the Highlands is a treat – the restaurant is an elegant room, with fine views without, sparkling crystal and fine china within. The meals are exceptional too. A full Scottish breakfast welcomes the day, and local ingredients sourced en- route are the basis of hearty buffet-style lunches and dinners. Dinner is served at a single seating, with some tables for odd numbers to allow for easy mingling.

You will enjoy complimentary wines with lunch & dinner and a full bar service is available at reasonable prices at all other times. Select tours may also include a beverage.

 

Lord of the Highlands cabin

 

Cabin Amenities
All cabins are equipped with air-conditioning, central heating, bathroom with shower, satellite TV, safe, hairdryers, 220 V electrical outlets — and each gives you a view of the lochs, canals & rivers.

Frequently Asked Questions

What about the weather?
The weather in Scotland and especially on the islands will be varied. Prepare for wet and windy conditions as well as bright sunshine. Layering clothing items is always your best bet, as this allows each person to adjust to any temperature, including artificially maintained temperature, by removing or adding items throughout the day.

How do I power and charge my devices?
The voltage in Scotland is officially 220/50Hz. To use any electrical product from the US that is not dual voltage, you will need an electrical converter. You will also need a type G plug adapter. Because the voltage may fluctuate at times, we also recommend unplugging your devices when not in use or when leaving them unattended.

Most shore excursions during your travel program are included (exceptions are Roslin Chapel and Stirling Castle). Excursions are led by expert guides, and guests are normally divided into two groups. Electronic listening devices, where required, are complimentary to all guests in order to ensure that guests are able to hear their guides, without disturbing nearby wildlife.

What are pre-paid gratuities?
Gratuities are customary expressions of appreciation for a job well done. It is our goal to ensure that the service you receive is as wonderful as the sites you visit. Gratuities for the included portions of this program have been pre-paid. At your own discretion you may choose to provide additional tips.

 

What should I wear?
Comfortable, casual clothing is appropriate both onshore and on board. You will find a significant amount of walking over very uneven terrain during your time ashore. We recommend comfortable walking shoes with good ankle support, as well as head covering to protect from the sun. At some sites, you may also be required to have knees and shoulders covered. Don’t forget to pack a waterproof jacket (preferably hooded) for unpredictable rain and cooler temperatures. You may also wish to bring something a bit dressier for one or two evenings. For our Gala evening on the Royal Yacht Britannia we will provide you with complimentary full-dress kilt (incl. shoes) and a sash for those who wish to wear a cocktail dress or trouser suit (not provided). Should you not wish to wear the complimentary kilt, please bring your own formal clothes for this special event.
