What people are saying about Balloch

We loved the Cruise, the guide was so interesting and informative including the piece about The Lady Of The Loch, which I sailed on when I was a kid. I was also relieved with the facility of contactless payment as I forgot to bring cash as recommended on the website!

It was great fun! There were explanations and you could buy snacks and drinks when on the cruise. A very cool way to see the are around Loch Lomond we strongly recommended it.

Beautiful trip, absolutely loved it, commentary was good and informative, lucky enough to have great weather in November, nice wee bar for drinks prior and during the trip

Staff were friendly, and the tour was really informative. A very relaxing time on the water. We will definitely be back to do another one of the tours on offer.

Stunning scenery, excellent care from knowledgeable tour guides, highly recommend
