Review of Scottish Highlander barge

The Scottish Highlander is a charming boutique hotel barge cruising in Scotland. Departures are from Inverness and Fort William. This is a motorized Dutch steel barge ship and a member of the European Waterways river cruise travel company's fleet.Scottish Highlander barge cruise ship

The ship was built as a trading barge by Gebroeders Van Zutphen in 1931, in Holland (Vreeswijk). Initially, it was named "Vertrouwen" (meaning "trust" in Dutch). For the first 60 years of service, the ship served as a trading barge transporting grain and commodities throughout The Netherlands.

The barge was purchased in 1991 by J P Leisure Ltd. After a refit in Holland, in April 1993 she sailed to Inverness to start her career as a passenger vessel. In 1999, the ship was bought by Derek Banks to become part of the fleet of European Waterways hotel barges. In 1999-2000, the ship was completely renovated and renamed "Scottish Highlander". The last refurbishment of the barge was in 2006.

As a luxury hotel barge, Scottish Highlander cruises on Caledonian Canal in Scotland with up to 8 passengers. She features 4 passenger cabins, 3 crew cabins, and a saloon. The Scottish Highlander barge is crewed by a tour guide, chef, housekeeper and captain.
