1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Stunning scenery. Seeing two white tailed eagles. The food!

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

To expect to see wonderful scenery but to be flexible as the weather dictates the programme. Travel light - the cabins are small.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

I recommend putting NcNean's distillery on the programme as it is trying to be fully sustainable. We visited some local shops and spent money with them, as well as a couple of pubs. I don't remember visiting a conservation project but by visiting by boat rather than as individuals in cars you reduce your carbon footprint and get a much better view.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Excellent crew who ensured we had a good time whatever the weather. Will's food was amazing! I would highly recommend your company and its cruises to other people as I really enjoyed it. My only disappointment was not seeing a golden eagle - just a lot of buzzards!

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

The whole experience was great but the excellent food and the relaxed atmosphere on the boat were special. And we were incredibly lucky with the weather.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Hope for as good weather as we had.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

As far as we could tell, the food was locally sourced. A motorised boat cannot have zero carbon footprint but i don't think we were environmentally unfriendly. The nature of the vacation was such that we did not did not directly support the locally economy through spending.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

A wonderful and memorable vacation and a great way to see the islands.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Mull and the Small Isles were just so beautiful, and the sea unbelievably calm. In normal times I would be booking an exotic international trip- i.e.to the Maldives. This trip was even better than exotic international! The team were absolutely superb, food excellent. A wonderful experience. I will be booking again.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Just book!

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

The trip definitely supported conservation. All supplies were sourced locally

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Absolutely superb!

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Seeing Dolphins swim along with the boat was memorable, as was walking on the islands we stopped at. Difficult to pick favourites really.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Be prepared for all weathers! And just relax and enjoy.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

I would like to think so, by choosing a locally based business this keeps the money in the area.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Very good.
