Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

It's no exaggeration to say, for me and my partner, this boat ride was the highlight of our 6 day tour around Scotland!

We originally booked a different tour and I am so pleased it got cancelled!

Iain you were awesome! The trip was thrilling, picturesque and we had lots of laughs. We truly had the best time and would 100% do it again.

We raced the jacobite train and saw the seal colony. Iain told us about some of the history and about the area, which was all interesting, without being an information overload. It all felt really relaxed and safe.

If you're thinking about booking on then do it, it's such an amazing way to see the area.

Really exciting and interesting trip. Raced the Jacobite train, observed the seal colony from amazingly close up and got a knowledgeable tour of the loch area. We all had a great time and would do it again if I was back in the area.

This was by far the best experience we had during our 8 day travel journey through Scotland. Ian is an amazing guide, really friendly and in for a laugh. He has a lot of knowledge about the area and the wildlife. We saw some seals and a sea eagle. We raced the train and Ian let us have a go at the steering wheel ourselves which was great! I would definitely recommend this tour!!

Went out with my fiancé and two of my mates. Absolutely best time EVER! Iain was an absolute LEGEND! Raced the Jacobite Train into Fort William, Looked at The Seal colony! Unfortunately the Eagle eluded us, but we did get Buzzed by a Couple of the RAF's F35 Lightning Aircraft over the Loch! Definitely the best tour in Fort Willaim. Bring on the Porridge Factory haha!

We are a family of 5 aged 9 upwards and we all absolutely loved this trip - beautiful nature (including dolphins!); some history, lots of learning and some great speed boating. Our guide Ian was so friendly and fun. Would highly recommend.

Iain is the most wonderful guide - warm and welcoming from the word go! Not sure I would trust a teenager to drive my boat like he did ha ha!

Thank you for a most memorable afternoon seeing seals, sea eagles and learning more about this beautiful part of the world. You made it a perfect trip for us as a family and something we will treasure for a long time.

What can I say!? We were so fortunate to have our lovely guide & captain, Ian show us around the Loch and we saw the sealing and their pups, the Eagle, and then we had a large pod of dolphins swim around and right up to us for a good 10-15 minutes! Just when we thought it could get any better, we saw porpoises on our way back in. The kids got a go at driving the boat and we all had such a blast! Thanks so much Ian!
