Well organised tour of Loch Lomond on a very comfortable boat. Good seating arrangements across two levels with open areas front and back.

Very pleased with the the adjacent parking and easy access to the boat dock.

I took my parents to Loch Lomond for their 60th Diamond Anniversary , we decided to book the boat trip, best part of the trip , they absolutely loved it, I must say the staff were outstanding , very helpful and showed consideration for my parents who are a bit slow on their feet. Thank you for that. That aside the actual tour and commentary was excellent , my dad in particular loved listening to the stories of the Loch, it was so lovely as to my surprise when you played the bonnie banks on the tannoy system they both sang it from beginning to end, I didn’t even know they new it. You and your team made their day. Thank You.
If you want the top deck you need to get to the boarding point early due to scottish covid restrictions. Limited refreshments are available on board, we took a picnic.
Smooth booking and boarding. Fantastic sites and trip through. Will not be disappointed if considering this.
Really enjoyed this cruise on Loch Lomond, relaxed with a recorded commentary.
The whole experience was excellent from beginning to end
