Scottish-oriented Lord of the Glens purchased by HP Shipping

The ship will offer five- and seven-night cruises starting from April next year
HP Shipping Ltd has purchased the 27-cabin, luxury yacht-inspired Lord of the Glens from the Magna Carta Steamship Company Ltd for an undisclosed sum.


‘This unique vessel … 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 Ken Charleson, managing director, Hebridean Island Cruises, the Yorkshire-based company which charters the vessel.  

‘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 and operates mainly on the west coast of Scotland.’ 

He added, ‘Advance bookings for 2021 are very strong and a number of cruises have been chartered to US and European tour operators.’ 


The four-deck ship's cabins were refurbished earlier this year. The vessel's design was influenced by the royal yacht Britannia.
