PoB Hotels are offering one reader the chance to take a dream trip on The Hebridean Princess.

BPurpose-built for Scotland’s Western Isles, The Hebridean Princess is a small luxury cruise ship, launched by Hebridean Island Cruises in 1989. Sailing mainly from her home port of Oban, her small size means she has access to the remotest islands, lochs and bays beyond the reach of larger vessels, gliding serenely through the water.

The Hebridean Princess perfectly complements the wildly beautiful Scottish scenery. Carrying a maximum of 48 passengers, fellow guests soon become friends. Wild landscapes, Europe’s best beaches, wildlife in abundance and centuries of history await you on board. And below deck, expect all the comforts and luxuries of a boutique hotel.

Take your place on the viewing deck, the best seat in the house. The wind in your hair, a dram to hand. Sea birds wheeling and diving above. Eyes to the waves, there are seals, porpoises and dolphins here, whales too, if luck is with you.

On the horizon could be the colourful houses of Tobermory, the rugged coastlines of Coll, Iona, Colonsay or Rum, secluded sea lochs or the turrets of baronial castles. The sounds of the sea all around. pobhotels.com/hotel/hebridean-princess/
