Sailing in Scotland

Surfing

Sailing in Scotland encompasses an enormous range of different waters, crafts and levels of skill. It can mean everything from a first taste of the sport in a dinghy to navigating a 46-foot ketch around the Hebrides.

An extended sailing trip in Scotland would make for an unforgettable holiday. Discover Scotland's many islands and experience life at sea. Learn the ropes or sit back and relax, days spent exploring are followed with fun, relaxed and friendly evenings aboard.

Many Wild Scotland providers also run RYA training courses, equipping you with the skills needed to make the most of your sailing in Scotland and elsewhere.
