Rivers and Lochs of Scotland

Sail the waterways of Scotland with River Cruise Your Way

About The Rivers & Lochs of Scotland

No visit to Scotland would be complete without sampling Scotch whisky, or “uisge-beatha na h-Alba,” the water of life.
Scotland has no “great river,” but two main water routes across the country: in the north, the Caledonian Canal connects the Atlantic with the North Sea, while, in the southern Great Glen, four lochs, including the famous Loch Ness, are joined by canals to make one of the greatest waterways of the world.
Whether your heart is called to the Highlands or the stunning Scottish Lowlands, the country’s famous canals, lochs, and rivers offer the chance to witness some of the most dramatic landscapes in the world. In addition to exploring wild glens and mountains, epic battlefields, romantic cities and towns, and magical lochs shrouded in history and legend, you’ll enjoy plenty of chances to savor Scottish delights like fresh-caught salmon and single-malt whisky.
A number of stylish and comfortable canal barges are available for cruising in Scotland, most designed to immerse guests in an authentic Scottish experience, including traditional regional cuisine and furnishings reminiscent of a traditional Scottish country house. Take the high road if you like, but for exploring Scotland, there’s no better way to go than by water!
