The boat was spotless and the crew were very friendly and polite. The narrative provided as we sailed the loch was very informative and certainly added to the experience

Lovely trip on calm waters, the scenery is beautiful, drinks and snacks available on board, well worth it if you have 2 hours to spare

Well worth doing get to see the vast size of loch ness and the scenery which is breath taking alone with learning history
