Is Scotia W only available to charter?
Scotia W is currently available exclusively for charter and comes fully crewed with a skipper, cook and two crew members.
What is the maximum number of people Scotia W can accommodate?
Scotia W has been designed to accommodate up to eight guests in four twin en-suite cabins.
Can I get internet access onboard?
Internet access is available onboard, but is reliant on mobile telephone coverage. Scotia W is fitted with Icomera’s Moovbox M220 device which allows us to offer mobile broadband. The system means that Internet access is only available wherever carrier networks provide coverage, which may be patchy along some parts of Scotland’s West Coast.
How spacious are the cabins?
Scotia W is converted from a traditional Scottish fishing trawler, therefore, accommodation is not as roomy as in a purpose-built hotel. All the cabins have been designed to maximise the space available on this size of vessel, and are designed as twins and fitted with standard size single beds. Each cabin has ample storage space and an en-suite shower room.
Can I tailor my itinerary?
In conjunction with our skipper, we are happy to tailor our itineraries to meet your specific requests. It may not be possible to accommodate all your requests due to distance, tides and time, but we’ll do our best.
How active do I need to be?
It is entirely up to you; after all it’s your holiday. We’ll tailor your itinerary to suit your needs, whether it’s playing at least two golf courses a day, heading ashore to explore Scotland’s history and culture, or simply relaxing on deck enjoying the scenery and wildlife. We berth in a local harbour or mooring each night and encourage you to go ashore and experience the local hospitality.
Can I fish from Scotia W?
Fishing from the vessel is permitted and our cook will be happy to cook and serve your catch. We carry rods and tackle onboard, but you are welcome to bring your own and try your luck while we are at anchor.
Will midges be a problem?
The Highland Midge is a species of small flying insect that is common to the West Coast of Scotland and is known to bite humans. They tend to be most widespread in July and August, and in the evening rather than during the day, as they prefer cooler conditions. Midges are also more commonly found near water, but are less active if there is a bit of a breeze. However, midges are not found at sea. They can be kept at bay with the help of insect repellent and a number of specialist midge repellents have been developed.
