We started our day in Tobermory, a quaint town with a colourful waterfront. Guests chose between spending time at the shops in town, going for a guided hike to Tobermory Lighthouse, or going to Tobermory whisky distillery. Some energetic guests managed to do all three options, and many of us were only too happy to spend some time in the local chocolate shop.
In the afternoon, we set sail for Inverie, the main village on the Knoydart Peninsula. Guests gathered in the lounge to take in the beautiful scenery as we cruised along the west coast of Scotland.
Knoydart is sandwiched between Loch Nevis and Loch Hourn — often translated as "Loch Heaven" and "Loch Hell," respectively. It is a spectacular landscape in one of the most remote parts of Scotland, and it offers the feeling of a truly wild place.
Once we arrived, some of us went for a long hike and enjoyed stunning views from the hills, while the rest of us explored the pretty coastline and quiet beaches. Many people commented on how serene and quiet the community felt. Indeed, part of what makes Knoydart so unique is the fact that it can only be accessed by boat or on foot.
After dinner, we paid a little visit to the most remote pub in Scotland: The Old Forge. This recently renovated bar only opened a few weeks ago, so we got to share in the excitement over a dram or two with the locals.
