Glen Tarsan

Discover the hidden beauty of Scotland’s rugged coastline aboard Glen Massan’s sister ship the Glen Tarsan. Tastefully renovated in 2007, the traditional fishing vessel navigates the tranquil waters of the region to a backdrop of spectacular mountain scenery, stunning lochs and abundant wildlife and allows guests inshore access to some of the more remote idyllic areas, often undiscovered by visitors to the region. Measuring 85ft in length, the Glen Tarsan offers six spacious double cabins, two on deck and four below deck, furnished to a high standard with en-suite facilities. The two top deck areas are furnished with sun loungers and provide a great space for wildlife watching. Facilities on-board include a wonderful informal dining area and bar where guests are served locally sourced menus at a communal table and an outdoor deck perfect for alfresco dining or watching the sunset.



The recently renovated wooden fishing vessel offer spacious accommodation full of traditional character, perfect for exploring the spectacular coastlines of the Argyll and the Inner Hebrides.  Due to the vessels size inshore access is available to more remote areas of the coastline not available to bigger cruise ships.

The design of the ship encourages relaxation and informality, the deck saloon has one large communal table where guests gather and dine together, sharing stories of the day's activities. The crew offer exceptional personalised service on board providing amazing meals from breakfast through to dinner. The daily menus are freshly prepared using locally sourced ingredients including lamb, beef, venision, fish and shellfish. There is also a new set menu but individual food tastes and requirements are catered for. Snacks, teas, coffees, soft drinks and fruit are available throughout the day. The deck saloon also has a well stocked bar offering a large variety of malt whiskies, plus a small library, stocking books on local wildlife, history and attractions as well as a range of games.

The outside decks have been cleverly designed to enhance the guest experience on board, allowing for  alfresco dining or perhaps even an evening drink at sunset. Stairs lead to spacious upper decks and the wheel house, where many guests spend time chatting to the crew, who are brimming with local knowledge of the area and its history. The top deck consists of a sheltered aft deck with sun loungers and a fore deck, an ideal area for wildlife watching. Here you can simply  relax and enjoy the panoramas or curl up with a good book.
