My wife and I spent the most memorable day with Billy and Eileen in August, visiting the Isle of Rum on their fantastic boat, riding across the island in their Land Rover and hiking to the most scenic places very few people get to see. I caught fat brown trout with Billy in a secluded loch and my wife was hosted by Eileen to a tour of the “Queen’s Beach” and other fantastic sights. We finished the day with beers and fresh trout that we prepared at the Isle of Rum Community Center with the nicest local residents. Then we made the short voyage back to Mallaig. We spent two weeks in Scotland, staying in castles and enjoying the nicest people and most beautiful places. No experience we had came close to the warm hospitality and pure discovery afforded us by Billy and Eileen. We are going back for more adventure!

Hi Amy and Michael, it was an absolute pleasure having the Rum experience with you both. We remember that day fondly the sun came out and I would say we were spoilt with the stunning vistas. I hope all is going well with you both and we would love to see you again next year.

Booked a special trip for my husbands 60th birthday & we were not disappointed. The service & attention to detail Billy gives you is second to none. We had the most wonderful day visiting the local waters & the island of Eigg. Catching mackerel, smoking & eating it. Billy’s knowledge of the area & local history is incredible & he kept us all entertained for the day. Cannot recommend it enough. Definitely the highlight of the holiday .

Go on an adventure with Billy, he is wonderful and a great ambassador for the area with extensive knowledge. He knows the area intimately and works hard to get the details right. You'll get a deeper sense of the places you explore with a knowledgeable guide like Billy. Truly unique and a variety of experiences, but if you can get over to Isle of Rum with Billy, do it. It's an amazing place with such a unique history that has left me with the most memorable memories of the trip (and the best photos)

We did the LOCH NEVIS CRUISE IN August 2019. It was just great.
We really saw what was promised in the advertising and learned much more as Billy (skipper) was always ready to give some interesting background information. Our expectations were more than met.
We all enjoyed the tour and especially as we were only a small group of 8 guests and due to Billys friendly manner we never had that feeling of “these” commercialized overloaded boat trips.
And remarkable, when we booked the trip our two teenaged girls (12 and 14) were not convinced if a day on small boat can be exciting, but at the end they didn’t want to come off the boat.
Thank you Billy!

Knoydart is special and simply wonderful when combined with an experience like the day we spent with Billy at Minch Adventures. Feeling safe at sea in capable and experienced hands allows you to relax and really enjoy the day. Watching gannets dive around the boat, fishing and hauling lobsters. Being landed at a remote beach and walking through view after view to be met at the other end with the most superb seafood meal. I really hope we will be able return for another adventure. Thanks Billy.
