A excellent opportunity to explore the Loch and surrounding islands. Great customer service and good commentary on board the cruise. The views are breathtaking. A brochure may be a good idea to understand more of the history once you leave the cruise. Overall excellent day out for all the family.

A perfect day out and highly recommended! Not only did we have a wonderful time on Loch Lomond with stunning views (and a couple of beers from the well stocked bar!), we even saw two ospreys flying overhead. Such a fantastic way to spend an afternoon with friends up from Wales

We had a great afternoon on this cruise. My 6yo grandson loved the boat and wanted to go to the front of the boat, to see where we were going, then to the back of the boat to see where we'd been. Ok, the commentary was a bit over his head, but we pointed out the places that Neill Oliver talked about. We did a 1 hour cruise last summer, which my grandson loved and kept asking when we were going back. It's not a cheap outing, but definitely one worth saving up to do. The girl who worked in the bar area was lovely, as she came to tidy up. My son has learning disabilities and loves to talk about things he likes. She patiently waited for him to tell her things and replied. We were all reminded to wear our masks when moving about the boat and the seating area was cleaned before we were allowed on
