Create your own skippered sailing holiday exploring the beautiful West Coast of Scotland.

Enjoy a holiday that is clean, green, ecologically friendly and healthy whilst also discovering diverse wildlife in their natural habitat. Keep reading...

ESSENESS offers the complete holiday package exploring the West Coast of Scotland, the islands of the Hebrides, and further afield to St Kilda - without a doubt one of the most exciting destinations in the whole region. The area boasts some of the best cruising grounds and certainly the most spectacular in the UK, and what better way to discover its remote delights and rich abundant wildlife than by sea? Every cruise is different and given the constraints of wind and tide we tailor make your holiday to combine with your wishes.

The level of sailing is for you to choose, from serious hands on sailing, to combination experiences including sailing with walking - or for the more experienced - scaling the challenging peaks on Skye or Rum. Alternatively you can sit back and relax in the cockpit, enjoy the scenery and varied sea and bird life - puffins, eagles, whales, dolphins, basking sharks to name but a few. Enjoy the sailing, the scenery, the wildlife, a richness of history, archeology and geology, magnificent sunsets, brilliant moonlit or starlit nights anchored in some remote bay, ambles on deserted white sandy beaches, impromptu ceilidhs and music in remote pubs and inns with a warm and friendly welcome by the locals.

For lovers of Scotland`s fine selection of Classic Malt Whisky there are plenty of Distilleries to visit along the way. The Classic Malts Cruise is one of the highlights of the sailing season.

Esseness is a new Dufour 455 grand`Large, a spacious and comfortable ocean sailing cruiser. With two double aft cabins, one en suite. Sue and Stuart, her owners and skippers, want to share their passion for sailing and the great outdoors with their guests and are happy to sit back and allow you to plan and sail a cruise, or help you plan your own itinerary based round your favoured shore based activity. At the end of the day what better way to finish than with an excellent home cooked meal prepared using local produce, good company and brilliant banter.

Sue and Stuart,hold commercially endorsed RYA yachtmaster offshore certificates and have many sea miles logged round the coast of Britain, in the Mediterranean, down the coast of Europe, in the Canaries, across the Atlantic and in the Caribbean. Sue is an RYA shore based instructor so you can hone up on your navigational skills. Stuart is also a professional outdoor pursuits instructor and can guide clients in a wide range of activities. We also have an inflatable two-man canoe, which is ideal for exploring secluded bays while the evening meal is being prepared.
