LEISURE & ENTERTAINMENT

THEMED CRUISES

Golf, Family, and Whisky Cruises are available on request. We can also adapt our standard cruise to incorporate horse-riding, if required. Please contact Paradise Connections for more details.

EXCURSIONS

The Scottish Highlander barge has a very comfortable 9-seater (including driver) air conditioned minibus, which is used for transfer and excursions.

For charter bookings, the itinerary can be adapted to suit your group's particular needs. If a destination or excursion is within a reasonable distance from the barge, we will do everything we can to arrange it. Please speak with us before your cruise and we can pre-arrange with the captain.

Any guests not wishing to participate in an excursion are welcome to remain on the barge.

CYCLING & WALKING

You are welcome to walk or cycle, using the on board bicycles. Most guests choose not to miss any cruising and tend to cycle or walk when the barge is stationary.

Cycling opportunities can be limited on certain days due to the differing terrain along the cruise route.

There are 8 mountain bikes on board. Children's bikes, helmets, and child bike seats can be arranged if required on request. Please notify us at least 8 weeks before your departure.

SMOKING

Our barges have a strict non-smoking policy. Smokers are asked not to smoke inside the barge as this may create an offence to your shipmates. Smoking is categorically not permitted in the cabins for safety reasons. If you would like to smoke, you are requested to smoke outside on deck away from fellow passengers.

PASSENGERS WITH MOBILITY RESTRICTIONS

Scottish Highlander has boarding steps with two handrails from the bank to the main deck. The gradient can sometimes be steep. There are five wide stairs from the main deck down to the salon. The guest staterooms are on the same level as the main salon. To access the Cameron Suite, there are three stairs down from the stateroom corridor with a single handrail. The crew will assist in every way they can but if you have any physical difficulties please advise us before continuing with your reservation.
