My father used to bring me to Loch Lomand to do some wild camping - yes, we ALWAYS cleaned up and respected the rules regarding wild camping. What we never did was have a cruise. It was very sentimental for me as my Dad died 13 years ago, so to see Loch Lomand from a different angle was so great. Myself, my wife and our son loved the cruise. Loads of photographs. At the end of the day I would happily give you 10 stars for making the cruise so enjoyable. When it came to sampling a pint, the young member of the crew actually brought our drinks over to us. Must have spotted my walking stick and put two and two together and came to the conclusion that I am disabled. The only thing that I could say as a negative comment: Even though we had the extended experience it was too short. Seriously, I would have loved to be out on your cruise all day and it still wouldn't be enough. To finish. We absolutely loved our cruise!!

The trip was good, the crew were nice, what annoyed us being old people was that it took about one and a half hours to book it. Having to get the vouchers on to the phone, photographing the receipt. When got to the gangplank I was asked “ what’s your name” and then we got on. Very annoyed to waste all our time getting the vouchers on our phone, if we did not need it. JUST SAY YOU HAVE BOOKED, GIVE YOUR NAME AT GANGPLANK. What’s hard about that. Ken Bragg

Well organised tour of Loch Lomond on a very comfortable boat. Good seating arrangements across two levels with open areas front and back. Excellent pre recorded commentary well synchronised at all the appropriate points. Luckily we had a mostly sunny day which really showed the scenery at its best. We purchased drinks on board but no snacks or crisps etc available which I am sure most people would have had so maybe they are missing a trick not providing them. Very pleased with the the adjacent parking and easy access to the boat dock.
