Eriskay is a sleek, modern cruiser and ideal for families and couples. Fully equipped with all bed linen, towels and galley equipment she is the ideal base to enjoy a cruise through the spectacular scenery of Loch Ness and the Caledonian Canal. She has a single engine, shaft drive and is fitted with a bow thruster so is really nice and easy to handle. Starting from our base in Inverness, during a weeks cruise with Caley Cruisers, you can take your boat as far as Banavie (just outside Fort William) and back to Inverness again. The full trip takes approximately 3 days each way so it's an ideal area for a weeks cruise, shortbreaks are also available....Eriskay is a sleek, modern cruiser and ideal for families and couples.
