Skarv Lines, Kinlochleven, Argyll, PH50 | Contact John MacInnes

Explore Scotland’s dramatic coastline with an unforgettable Scottish cruise adventure aboard our expertly converted wooden hulled trawler.

Skarvlines sets itself apart from other West Coast Cruise companies by combining both the West and East Coasts of Scotland with a trip around the top of mainland Scotland or through the Caledonian canal linking both in one cruise.   Combine this with wonderful food & drink, dramatic scenery, breathtaking wildlife & wild places and our expert local knowledge and we think we offer something really special.
