We weren't too sure if any boat trips would be running on the day we phoned up to enquire as it was out of season (November). However on phoning up Misty Isle, they were extremely helpful and friendly and gave us all the details we needed on trip options that day. The boat trip itself was well worth the money... More

There are so many positives about a trip to Loch Coruisk, beginning with the drive along the narrow Skye roads, the cows chewing salt ropes, the informative trip on Misty Isles, but the star of the show....Loch Coruisk. The trip suits all types, the walk from the dock is managaeable by most people, and for those a little more adventure-ous,... More

We did the half day trip to Loch Coruisk and the trip to Canna. Both were wonderful! The boats were well equipped (toilet on board) and the crews friendly and helpful. Over both trips we saw porpoises, a minke whale, seals, golden eagles, white tail eagles, other birds of prey and red deer. If you're going to Loch Coruisk, take... More

If you're looking to get off the beaten path and onto the water, this is a great day trip on Isle of Skye. It was a long, but very scenic, drive from our place in Portree, which added to the adventure. The road to Elgol is pretty remote, and you feel like you must be going the wrong way -... More

Did a last minute booking on the very day. Got a little lost driving to Elgol but the beautiful scenery all around makes up for it. Please do not miss this boat trip! You will not regret it. The scenery is so beautiful, its still stuck in my mind right now. Skippers are brilliant too. Watch out for the midges... More

After found out about this trip on the internet, in no time, we made a direct query to Anne and her crew. Anne was so helpful that she allowed us to make booking for two different days subjected to the weather and chose one day later when we are sure about the weather. We were there for a pre-wedding shoot... More

We have been on both these trips this week. My husband has been very ill recently and we weren't sure whether he would manage these. We did the short trip first and found everybody so helpful and friendly, that we booked the longer trip straight away. My husband needed help on and off the boat, as well as my two... More

Everybody seems to rave about this trip and no wonder. The quiet beautiful scenery, the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff and the wonderful hot chocolate and shortbread on the return journey all make for a wonderful day....and if you get the sun shining, as we were fortunate enough to have, it is almost perfect. Misty Isles are happy to... More

The trip I took to Loch Coruisk with Misty Isle was one of the highlights of my trip to Skye! I will admit, I was a little frazzled by the time I arrived in Elgol; locals tend to drive faster than those of us not used to one-track roads, so the time they tell you it will take to get... More

Misty Isle run lots of trips to Loch Coruisk, but our hosts were really enthusiastic and very friendly and made sure our trip was special. They went out of their way to make sure we saw lots of dolphins. It's a beautiful location but the hosts made it extra special. Thanks guys!
