The staff at Sweeneys were lovely and welcoming. The biat was spotkess as were the windows. The cruise was informative but we weren't overloaded with information. Plenty of time to take in the gorgeous views, have a chat and take photos. Would definitely like to take the 2 hour cruise next time.

My loch lomond cruise was most enjoyable, the boat was great, the information on board was interesting and informative. The fact that there were toilets on board was good and also hot and cold drinks available. The cruise itself was very easy to book, online or pay at the hut located by the side of the loch. The views were stunningly beautiful and the expanse of water was breathtaking. I would recommend this as an essential experience while visiting loch lomond!
