A total of 761 vessels visited Scotland last year, bringing with them more than 680,000 passengers. There are currently 815 vessels with approximately 821,000 passengers expected in the season that gets underway this month and continues through into the autumn. “A significant milestone will be achieved this year when the passenger total since 2010 will pass the four million mark,” said Andrew Hemphill, chair of Cruise Scotland.’
