Cruise Description

6 Night Scottish Winter Warmer cruise departing roundtrip from Tilbury onboard Black Watch.

There’s something special about visiting Scotland in the winter and on this wonderful 6-night sojourn aboard Black Watch, you’ll visit two fantastic cities and explore the dramatic landscapes of the Highlands at the most magical time of the year.

The world-famous landmarks of Edinburgh await you during your call into Rosyth, the gateway to the Scottish capital. Just a short journey from the port will take you the heart of Edinburgh, where you’ll have a full-day to explore at your leisure. The iconic Castle, which dominates the skyline in the UNESCO-listed city centre; Holyrood Palace, the official residence of Her Majesty the Queen; Rosslyn Chapel; and the Royal Yacht Britannia are all not-to-be missed. After a busy day of exploring, why not visit the Scotch Whisky Experience at the top of the Royal Mile and relax with a warming glass of the nation’s favourite tipple in hand.

Awash with fantastic galleries, museums and an abundance of other unique attractions, Dundee – recently awarded City of Design status by UNESCO – is one of Fred.’s guests’ favourite Scottish ports. Arriving early in the morning, you can delve into the rich history and heritage of the city, which is famed for its comics, marmalade and jute. Grab a photo with the bronze statue of Desperate Dan, the much-loved character from ‘Dandy’; explore the Verdant Works jute museum; and visit the Frigate Unicorn, one of the world’s oldest and best-preserved wooden warships. From Invergordon, venture into the picture-perfect Highlands to see historic structures such as the 15th century Cawdor Castle shrouded in ‘Scottish Mist’, or even go in search of the legendary Loch Ness Monster at arguably the most famous of all the Scottish Lochs.
