Seeking a bit of adventure during a cruise?

Amongst some of the most popular holiday destinations in the UK, the Hebrides (Inner and Outer) has recently made an influential list of the Top 20 Adventure Cruise destinations on the planet.

Compiled by Wanderlust, the Hebrides landed in 6th place just behind the region of Kimberley in Australia.

Praised for its beautiful, wild landscape, with the UNESCO-listed St Kilda archipelago notably mentioned, the Hebrides are the only UK cruise destination to make the list.

Whilst discussing the Scottish Isles, Wanderlust also notes that trips are very weather dependent in the area.
