My wife and myself took the 11.30 cruise which lasted one hour. Beautiful smooth day, information provided about various shoreline properties etc. Very nice way to pass an hour.

For quite a good price (10-11GBP) you take a 1 hour tour around a part of Loch Lomond, you see some islands from closeby and get nice explanations of the most important buildings/castles on the shores of Loch Lomond

Hi Colin, Further to our telephone conversation last week I'd like to reiterate a few of the points discussed. Firstly, having watched the cctv the fall was a trip rather than a slip- the steps in question aren't slippy and could never be described as so. That being said, it is very clear that the staff member in question did... More

We travelled from Glasgow on Sunday morning in early March, half expecting the cruise to be cancelled due to lack of passengers- how wrong we were - it was standing room only by cast-off! Unfortunately it had rained in the morning and the outside seats were soaking wet. After paying £10.50 for a ticket for a one-hour trip, it would... More

Hi there, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I glad you seemed to enjoy your experience on the whole, although you're quite right about the wet seats. We do try our best to dry off the outside seating when we can, in this instance it looks like either the crew forgot or have been surprised by... More

We took the 1 hour cruise on a very misty, wet Sunday morning. The boat's seating areas are very comfortable and the commentary was informative. The little coffee shop was very welcome, and all the crew were polite. Despite the weather we had good views of the Loch and the shores - and if you don't want to be in... More

If your in the area, make sure you take the time to get a cruise in. The morning 2 hour cruise stops at Luss giving you enough time to grab some lunch and take in the beautiful little village. The sights are stunning and there are not many places in the UK could offer such sights.

I have been on the 2 hour cruise last summer and the 1 hour just there in January. We chose to go again in January because of the atmospheric mist around the shores of the loch. You get closer to the islands and there's more to see on the 2 hour cruise but the 1 hour is still worth a... More

We decided to go on the cruise round the Loch with Sweeneys and it was pretty pleasant. The large cabin is enclosed and heated which was lovely as the weather was very cold. Good commentary from Scottish TV presenter and author Neil Oliver which was good if not a little short. Would be best on a clear sunny day.
