Hebrides Geosail

Selkie’s Hebrides Geosails reach the places that normal geology trips don’t reach. We travel with the wind, see the Hebrides from a completely different perspective, take our time to soak up the atmosphere, get in close to the coast to view the geology of inaccessible places and marvel at the wonderful wildlife.

Selkie is delighted to be working with Angus Miller of Geowalks to bring this opportunity to visit Scotland’s finest rocks and landscapes, and deliver an unforgettable experience for small groups.

We can’t plan the detailed itinerary in advance, but there are a myriad of possibilities sailing from Lochboisdale, South Uist, to Eigg in the Small Isles  with a range of geology ahead of us. (Rocks dating from 3000 million to just 55 million years old.) We may sail north or south in the Sea of the Hebrides and Minch, steadily heading East for these fascinating and exciting sailing and geology trips.

Our food on Selkie is an important part of our voyage and we try to use local produce as much as possible either from skipper Celia Bull’s croft or from other local Eigg crofts and businesses.
