Amazing scenery. Very interesting commentary. Boat spotlessly clean, including ladies toilet. Crew very welcoming and courteous. It would have been even better if more outdoor seating space were available, to get an even better view of the scenery. But nearly all the seating on the Silver Marlin is inside. And I did enjoy the good weather out on the small rear outdoor area.

The boarding time was on time, the crew were brilliant and very helpful..the trip along the loch was pleasant and very calm. The commentary off the crew was very good telling us about the big houses on the shore and about the legends etc. The scenery all around is breath taking, we'll worth the money..

There are a choice of cruises on Loch Lomond and we did the 2hr. Greatly enjoyed the trip - the weather was great which made all the difference of course. There were not too many people on our afternoon sailing which meant we could move around the vessel (and most people did!) - inside and outside, facing forwards and backwards. Good fun and happily recommend. If there is an adverse comment it is that, depending on where you sit, the engine is extremely noisy and after 2 hours it was a bit much! We thought the commentary was good but very factual - little enthusiasm in the expression or presentation - but fine to listen to. The crew could do more to promote their bar and drinks offer too.
