Fantastic boat trip. The commentary was informative, the scenery was incredible and the boat was comfortable and smooth. We had a coffee and sat upstairs to admire the views. We had a baby and a 5 year old in our group and they seemed to love it too. A great trip for all the family!

I went with my partner and had a great time. The trip across the loch was informative and fun. We had an amazing day for it but even if it was raining there was an indoor space on the boat for shelter. There is also a bar for refreshments. The staff were friendly, efficient and knowledgeable. Would highly recommend, a great way to see more of the loch.

Very organised getting people on an off the boat. Staff willing to help with wheelchairs. I had mistakenly booked the wrong time but the young lady checking people on kindly let us go aboard. The commentary was fabulous and very informative. It can get a bit windy and cold on the top deck so remember a jacket. All in all we throughly enjoyed the trip.
