Welcome aboard Stravaigin Sailing!

Yacht charters, boating and sailing holidays from Oban on Scotland’s West Coast

We want to welcome you aboard Stravaigin, our 44ft 8 berth yacht charter that sails from Oban in Scotland. We are a small family run business that offers boating holidays, sailing excursions and adventures along the stunning West Coast of Scotland, taking in the idyllic coastline, islands, secluded sea lochs, and sheltered coves.

Stravaigin is an old Scots word meaning “To wander with no particular intent” and we like to think that encapsules our ethos of immersive, slow adventures, exploring and discovering new landscapes, experiences, foods, cultures and creating meaningful experiences and memories that linger.

From a days’ yacht charter exploring inner Hebridean islands to a full week sailing holiday spent cruising the West Coast as well as enjoying other outdoor activities either as a couple, with friends or a family group cast off with Stravaigin to discover new and exciting horizons.

With more than 10,000 miles of spectacular coastline, you are sure to enjoy a boating holiday along Scotland’s rugged West Coast. We pride ourselves on providing our guests with the best quality experience where they are free to relax and enjoy the journey as we explore the breath-taking beauty of the Scottish coast.
