Very simple to book and the location is easy to reach, with free parking nearby. The boat left on time and there was plenty of room for everyone to sit comfortably. The onboard commentary was perfect - not constant, just every now and then pointing out things of interest. Having the small bar for snacks and drinks was perfect. Took us on a lovely route and it was exactly the full 120mins we paid for! Totally got our money's worth. Toilets on the boat were also very clean and easy to use.

Very enjoyable tour. Meeting point was very easy to find only 1 min walk from the train station . The 2 hours went by so quickly, there was so much to see and take in, with commentary on board. The only thing I would improve would be to make the speakers louder so that people could hear the commentaries from outside the cabin. The boat was very clean with toilets and a bar on board. We sat outside because we didn't get any seats inside but we had the best view so can't complain about that. The time options are excellent which is one of the main reason why we came here because it was very convenient. Overall very good experience and great value for money. Will definitely recommend it. Very friendly staff too.

Great trip on the Loch. Guide was very well informed about the history on the Loch. The trip was peaceful and we had lots of time to take photos off various buildings and scenery. We had a coffee on board and good we brought along with us. Weather was not kind on our outward journey but the clouds cleared away to show what beautiful scenery we have here in Scotland. Would recommend doing this trip you won’t be disappointed.
