From the entertaining staff compere/guide on board to the historical short film at the castle centre we had a very entertaining and enlightening trip. Alas no Nessy, but would definitely recommend. The views alone are spectacular.

The boat is very sturdy, we went in rather bitter windy weather and both my husband and children were fine! A very smooth ride , didn’t feel any choppy waters . Have a fabulous time!
