'Home' on the pontoons at Kyle Posted 12 May 2017

Red Moon is back in her summer berth at the Kyle of Lochalsh after two great cruises out of Oban and two out of Greenock. We are looking forward to welcoming our first 'Skye guests' of 2017 shortly. Here, Red Moon was 'droned' by the pontoon-master and we have some fab aerial shots - see our Blog and Facebook page for more soon...

En route to Skye... Posted 20 April 2017

Red Moon is currently in Oban getting ready for a couple of cruises to Islay and around Mull. We had a fun trip through the Crinan canal on the way up after completing our first trip of the season with a cruise through the Kyles of Bute to Arran and its lovely distillery.

New season approaching... Posted 1 February 2017

After a settled winter in Greenock we are gearing up for our second season. The bookings are coming in and we look forward to welcoming our first guests in early April. We have added an 'Availability' page to our website to help you plan your cruise with us and we have a fabulous offer for the school summer holiday period - see our 'Cruise Offers' page and book soon as this expires in April!

Red Moon Winter Posted 15 October 2016

Red Moon Cruises is now in her winter berth - this year we are staying close to Glasgow on the Clyde at James Watt Dock Marina. This means we can still be available for short river trips or even as an alternative to land based B&B - please get in touch if you are interested. Here is Red Moon on her voyage south in the Crinan canal.

Autumn cruises - special offer for September & October Scottish cruises Posted 15 August 2016

Come and see Scotland in her finest colours. Already the hills are showing muted heather and bracken colours, which delineate the magnificent hillsides around the lochs. This time of year often brings a spell of settled, favourable weather in which to enjoy the spectacular scenery from Red Moon's wheelhouse and cosy saloon. Call us to book your Autumn cruise with our special 10% discount.
