We booked a Tobermory Wildlife Boat Trip (months before we actually came to the area). Initially we struggled booking through the website, and also trying to actually speak to someone, but finally managed to pay a deposit and confirm the booking. A week before we were due to visit, I emailed again to double check details. Unfortunately never got a... More

In August we stayed at Laga Lodge, Ardnamurchan Charters' chalet, and hired one of their Pioneer boats for some fishing. The briefing by Barnaby was exemplary and the safety equipment just as it should be. However, as we were about to leave the dock, we discovered the wheel steering was not working. Barnaby dismissed this as not being important, saying... More

We took the wildlife trip. This gave us an interesting perspective of loch sunart. We saw seals, porpoises, an otter and nesting terns. Andy, the skipper, is a great advocate for the attractions of this location and his passion for the area shines through. Note - the boat is easy to access and suitable for a range of mobilities, but... More

I have been photographing wildlife for over four years. I booked for the very focused trip dedicated to sea eagles to take photographs of the white –tailed sea eagles at Bloody Bay as the highlight of my holiday in Scotland. After a two hour journey including a ferry crossing I arrived at Ardnamurchan Charters to be told that the trip... More

Pre-booked a trip on Wednesday 18th May 2016. You can turn up on the day but the boat might be full. Scheduled as a 4 hour trip, but turned into 5 hours as late on it was really interesting.

I organised a trip to Ardnamurchan Charters for a group of friends to use the self drive boats. The drive there is very scenic but on slow roads so allow plenty of travel time. Parking space is limited, if you are a group car sharing is useful. We found the company to be very flexible and accommodating and allowed us... More

We arrived on spec and having initially been confused with a family who had pre-booked, were able to have the safety briefing with them and head out onto Loch Sunart for a 4-hour boat hire. All safety instructions were clearly given (albeit interrupted at points by a large friendly dog belonging to the instructor) and the boat we had was... More
