We had a long day on the boat but unfortunately failed to see anything. It was however a very enjoyable day. It was very, warm and calm and the scenery was spectacular. The landing on the Isle of Muck was a little disappointing as there was a lot of building work going on. Well worth the trip but don't bank... More

While on honeymoon on Ardnamurchan we took the opportunity to go out with Ardnamurchan Charters on their whale watching trip having been told of good sightings. The weather helped make the day so fantastic, with temperatures well into the 20s and remarkably flat seas. As well as spotting a minke whale, the highlight of the trip was sitting in the... More

We set off into Loch Sunart after very clear and helpful intructions on how to drive the boat and safety intructions to look at the wild life and fish. The 3 of us had an amazing day, saw lots of birds and caught a mackeral. The most amazing thing, which is often the case in Scotland was the light. We... More

We took the 2 hour trip to the Treshnish Islands to see puffins. It was a long journey there but the crew pointed out porpoises and basking shark on the way. The island we stopped at was incredible. Hundreds of beautiful puffins within feet of us. It was great. Andy then took us further up the island to see other... More

We booked a 2 hour trip for later the same day. We were then a little disappointed when we were told that there had been a mix up and our trip was cancelled. However, the company kindly offered us a 4 hour trip as a replacement with no extra charge, and we had a fantastic time. The owner was very... More

We stayed for a week 3rd to 10th August 2013 at Laga Bay. Apart from staying at a fabulous cottage overlooking Loch Sunart, we had a fantastic boat trip with Tom (and Dexter his black lab) from Ardnamurchan Charters. Starting at Laga Bay we went out to Cairns of Coll to see harbour porpoises, many seals, followed by 8 basking... More

We stayed for 4 nights on the Island of Carna. Although accommodation is quite basic, the views, wildlife, and boat trips make this a magical place to relax and unwind. The boat trip to the Treshnish Isles was amazing, puffins galore on Lunga. Andy and family are great. Dogs lovely too.

We all had a really fantastic time staying for the week in Laga Lodge. It was truly superb. This holiday had to be our best family fishing holiday ever. We have to give a very special thank you to Andy, Allison, Tom, Graeme et al and to Tag, Spider and Hendrix (the dogs) for making our stay so pleasurable. Lucy... More
