Jacobite's award winning tours and cruises get you onto the water and into the heart of this iconic landscape. This is a whole lot more than simply sight-seeing.

Smashing! There were 5 of us and it wasn't perfect weather but the tour was still totally enjoyable. Peter was on the mike and what a nice man he is. Everyone was nice. We will be recommending this cruise to all our visitors.

The boat left on time and the raise lasted 2 hours as advertised. The boat was roomy and comfortable with both inside and upstairs outside seating. There was an informative commentary and we had good views of Urquhart Castle. It was a pleasant experience.

We absolutely enjoyed ourselves. The crew is awesome, the boat is in a good shape, there are options to is on the open deck or inside the passenger cabin, that offers comfortable benched with tables. There is also a bar selling lattes, snacks and local drinks. Book early, we came at the end of June, but booked four months in advance.

We recently went onto this cruise and from the moment of arriving to leaving some 3 hours later, the whole experience was amazing. The staff were all knowledgeable, and friendly and all the facilities were clean and tidy. I would certainly highly recommend this tour, to anyone looking for professionalism and value for money.

We did the two hour cruise from Dongarroch that takes you down to Urqhart Castle . We had a gorgeous sunny day for the trip and it was fantastic. This tour is composed such that you see the castle ruins from the boat versus a longer tour that docks at the castle. The scenery on the way down is really spectacular and the vistas from the water of the mountains and glens are unique and you could not get the same perspective from land. The tour is narrated extremely well and you get alot of history of the clans that resided around the loch as well as general info on the area. The facilities at Dochgarroch are really, really nice. The building looks like it is only a couple of years old and is very nicely designed. We had lunch at the restaurant, An Tallee, and it was quite good and reasonably priced. This is a really nice way to spend a half day and is a great value
