6 days discovering Scotland's whisky distilleries by superyacht

6 days discovering Scotland's whisky distilleries by superyacht

1 of 6 1/6
Oban, Scotland
Day 1

Oban Distillery, Oban

The west coast of Scotland is a whisky-loving superyachter’s paradise. The biggest problem is not what to see but what to cull reluctantly from the itinerary. One could spend months here without getting bored and without supping the same whisky twice. The area recently attracted Roman Abramovich who spent five days on a luxury yacht in Scotland.

There are well over a dozen distilleries dotted along the coast and in the islands that make up the Inner Hebrides, each offering a warm welcome. And as you cruise between them you’ll see spectacular sunsets, as well as killer whales, basking sharks and dolphins and, nearer the shore, otters, seals, eagles and puffins.

Day one: Oban Distillery, Oban

You will probably start your voyage in Oban snugly situated in the Firth of Lorn and sheltered from the worst of any weather by the island of Kerrera. There has been a distillery in the town since 1794 and a dram of Oban 14 Year Old will make the perfect start to your journey: intense, sweet and fruity with just an iodine hint of the salty sea. Pack a couple of bottles on board, just in case.
