Depart for Rona at 11am. Enjoy a leisurely cruise to the stunning Rona Harbour (Acarsaid Mhor), taking in views of the iconic Storr and Cuillins along the way.
Wildlife spotting opportunities are abundant throughout this trip, from seabirds to marine life. In particular, Rona has a resident seal colony, so make sure you take a pair of our binoculars to hopefully view them basking on the rocks.
We serve a hearty lunch of fresh seafood onboard upon arrival. Eat out on deck or in our cosy wheelhouse if you prefer. Soak up the beautiful views of Rona harbour, while listening to the many species of birds who nest there. It is a truly special place.
Guests then get the opportunity to go ashore for up to 2 hours, during which they can explore the natural beauty of this remote island. The views looking back to Skye are magnificent. The historical site of ‘An Teampull’, a small 14th century chapel, can be accessed on foot. Take a hike to the ruins of a settlement that dates back to the Scottish Clearances. Alternatively walk to the dramatic Church Cave, which was used for Sunday worship until 1912.
Walks on Rona are of varying degrees of difficulty. Sturdy footwear is advised if you plan to go exploring ashore. We can recommend walks for all levels of ability.
Departure from Portree Pier will be at 11am, returning back for 4pm.
