Father Son Adventure

Five day voyage on a traditional square rigged ship in the Western Isles of Scotland

We believe Fathers and Sons need shared adventures. We offer five night voyages in the Hebrides on board the traditional square-rigged brigantine 'Lady of Avenel' based at Oban. You will sail the ship with up to five other father/son pairs, steering, navigating, cooking, climbing the rigging and handling sails aloft, learning to splice and knot, steer and light fires ashore.

We will anchor in remote bays on wild mountain islands, then explore the hills before a night's bivouac on the beach. There's a chance of seeing seals, dolphins, whales, otters or the great sea eagle; wild swimming, fishing and cooking on open fires on the beach are all possibilities.

This is REAL adventure so there is no fixed programme; we respond to the weather and tides to make the best of the experience. All under the safe guidance of three hugely experienced professional men.

A great chance to spend time together, laugh, relax, learn new skills, see another side of each other and generally have fun.
