St Kilda, Inner Hebrides and Small Isles 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.
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 myriad possibilities setting out from Mallaig with a range of geology ahead of us. (Rocks dating from 3000 million to just 55 million years old.) Our possibilities include the Outer Hebrides, Skye, Soay, Col and Tiree, or we can sail north to the Summer Isles or south to Treshnish, Mull and Iona for these fascinating and exciting sailing and geology trips. And, if conditions allow, we can reach St Kilda beyond the Outer Hebrides and land there for a wild walk.
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. We buy our fish from Andy Race in Mallaig and venison from the Glenfinnan estate. Muck pheasant usually rocks up for a meal too. You can enjoy an anchordram as well as a glass of wine courtesy of the Wine Society with your meal, or a refreshing beer from the Laig Bay Brewing Company on Eigg.
