High Jinks, High Seas and Highlanders

Weary of her Yorkshire county life of grouse moors and hunt balls, Amelia Dalton threw herself instead into converting a deep sea trawler into a holiday cruiser. She had to deal with the closed community of fishermen in NE Scotland in the 90s, negotiate red tape, oversee shipyards and deal with engineers, while coping with demanding shareholders and wayward employees. What began as a love affair with the romance of the sea became a battle to stay afloat financially and literally. This is a lively account of an adventure like no other and a voyage of self-discovery.

“Imagine A Year in Provence with the cast of Para Handy; add a touch of James Herriot, and you’ll get the drift of Mistress and Commander. Imagine Freya Stark, or some other dauntless female, taking on the alpha male communities of maritime Scotland and you’ll have the measure of Amelia Dalton.”  Peter Hughes, FT & Telegraph travel writer.

For ten years, Amelia Dalton organised cruises to the remote island chains of Scotland’s stunning West Coast. She worked closely with The National Trust for Scotland, and gained her commercial qualifications as a Captain. Amelia advises for individual clients on river and ocean cruises and runs her own travel company, Amelia Dalton Travel.
