Cruised on the Caledonian Canal for 4 days from 16th June 2014. Tried to leave review against Company and boat, but maybe I am too thick to find them.
Wanted to express just what a fantastic holiday this was. We were a family of 7, six adults a three year old, and could not have wished for a better experience, as rookies on this type of holiday.
From the initial training we were shown how to operate the boat, and within an hour we were cruising on the canal by ourselves. The boat was excellent, and in first class condition. We had one small equipment malfunction, and the company were immediately available to talk us through a resolution, and would have come out to us immediately, had this been required.
The boat was large enough for our party, and not as cramped as I had envisaged. However there is only so much space that can be available, so take only what you need by way of luggage.
We were blessed with fantastic weather, so not able to comment on what would happen if this was not the case, but with the outstanding scenery, and the adventure of piloting your own craft, this was an ideal holiday for a family looking for a relaxing way of seeing one of the most beautiful countries in the world.
The people who man the lock gates are very friendly and helpful, even to those beginners like us.
All in all, I would recommend this type of holiday to any active types. We also went for walks at some of the various stops along the way, the falls at Foyers being a favourite.
