Cruises from Scotland

Sailing from the beautiful landscapes of Scotland is a great way to kick-start your cruise and there are plenty of options available to ensure you pick the best cruise for you. Cruising directly from a Scottish port can make starting your cruise holiday much quicker and easier than flying elsewhere to start your cruise from a port in the South of England or further.

Which cruise lines sail from Scotland?

Currently, there are two cruise lines which depart from Scotland cruise ports: Fred. Olsen and Cruise & Maritime Voyages. Sailings are available on two ships:

  • Balmoral is the flagship of Fred.Olsen Cruise Lines and sails out of Rosyth (Edinburgh) to the Norwegian Fjords and Scandinavia
  • Magellan offers CMV cruises from Scotland, sailing out of Dundee to Iceland, the Baltics and St Petersburg

What cruise ports are in Scotland?

There are 16 ports across Scotland, though the most popular cruise ports to depart from include Rosyth, Dundee, and Greenock. Other ports you might visit include Tobermary, Portree, Invergordon, or Lerwick.

Sailings in 2020 may have been suspended or withdrawn due to the current global crisis, however cruises from Scotland in 2021 remain as planned. Popular months typically fall across summer from May to August. Sailings vary between 5-nights to 14-nights, so you can opt for a mini cruise from Scotland or a longer getaway.

Where can you sail?

Cruises from Scotland are well-suited for visiting a breadth of destinations such as Iceland, Norway, and the Baltics. Cruises to Iceland and the Norwegian Fjords from Scotland are perfect, as the destinations are much nearer so take less time to reach.

Cruises from Scotland call at the following ports:

There’s also the option to simply cruise around the Scottish Isles, visiting neighbouring ports in Scotland as well as ports in Ireland, Liverpool and Newcastle.
