Our family (mom plus daughters 19, 17, & 11) loved it! The boat trip was neat, but the real gem is the ability to hike once they drop you off. The scenery was magnificient! So wild and isolated, but felt 100% safe. Enjoyed hiking over the ridge to the lake and "up the mountain." The next time we do this,... More

Ann and Shamus MacKinnon have a wonderful adventure for us all to share on the Misty Isle. The trip over to Lake Coruisk was smooth. The Deck hands gave an informative dialog of the area on the way over. GREAT SCENERY! We felt very secure and safe all the way over and back. The seals were fun. Thank you

I would definitely not recommend this boat trip. Firstly there was a dog on the boat and i am petrified of them. I was not informed that animals would be on the boat. There were also a family of loud, annoying Americans on the boat. There were 3 crew members and only one of them seemed friendly, the other two... More

Thank you for your review. We are sorry you did not enjoy your trip but since we started running our trips in 1967 we have always welcomed dogs on board provided they are accompanied by a well behaved human. It has never been a point that we make to people when they book as we would expect anyone with such... More

Outstanding trip to Lake Coruisk. Wooden open deck, binoculars, ponchos, tea and cookies provided. Fair price, good banter and wildlife commentary. Special thanks to Anne for all the extra service (incl. looking for our forgotten things and helpful tips)

I took my 4 year old son on the 90 minute boat trip and had an absolutely wonderful time, despite the cold weather. From the moment I called in the morning to book last minute, the staff were extremely friendly and welcoming. When we arrived and were waiting to board the boat, the owner opened up a sandpit to keep... More

We took this trip on a day the other boat people didn't go but felt very confident as both crew were experienced skippers. The journey was very good and the crew were very entertaining in their explanations of what we could see and the local area. The visit was given plenty of time to explore the view down Loch Coruisk... More

As part of our honeymoon, we booked the full day boat trip to Loch Coruisk with Misty Isle Boat Trips. From the moment we arrived at the dock, we were greeted warmly. The boat is relatively small (seats about 20 people I believe) but it was clean and well-maintained. There was a couple about to get married and some dogs... More

I was disappointed to not see a minke whale or basking shark as they had been seen that week. The crew tried hard to spot them for us and gave an interesting review of the area. Three hour trip is perfect timing to have hour and a half to explore the hidden loch. Seals are very photogenic too.

We were staying on Skye for a couple of days so we drove to Elgol having seen a flyer for the Misty Isles boat trip. The drive alone is fantastic - it took at least 40 minutes as we kept stopping for photos! I imagine this road could be a bit nerve wracking in poor weather or for nervous drivers... More

We were actually on a coach trip but, because the weather was so beautiful we opted to take this trip for the morning, early afternoon. It was fabulous and I am so glad we did it!
