we have been on this cruise before but this time was the best . we had booked the cruise up as we had took my dad on holiday to Scotland has he had never been before he is 82 . The guide knew everything about loch ness and the area but what made it is that he sang two Scottish songs . when we departed i thanked the guide for making the cruise so entertaining as well as interesting Happy memories.

Fabulous and friendly staff. Clear tour guide. Clean. Exciting ride.

The staff were very friendly and funny, they chatted to us and made us feel extremely welcome. The tour guide was clear and concise with interesting facts about Loch Ness and very knowledgable. The boat was clean and the ride along Loch Ness was truly breathtaking and inspiring. Loved sitting at the front outside feeling the spray as the boat splashed against the oncoming wavelings. What a beautiful day and a beautiful memory.
