We wanted a trip to Eigg to climb An Sgurr and saw that the Shearwater gave us a 5 hour stopover. The boat was immensely crowded and hugely good natured and our from Arisaig the captain paused to watch the seals. The real highlight was halfway across the channel. Here we stopped for half an hour watching two Minke Whales... More

Fantastic, amazing, wonderful views of Dolphins leaping around the boat, so many great photos and you didn't need some huge camera with mega lens. my daughter got some brilliant photos just using her phone. only thing that would have made it better would have been some communication telling us what we were seeing I.e I had to ask to find...

We took a ferry from here to Rum for the day in August. The harbour is stunning and the views beautiful. Although we didn't stay long, the café and facilities were very good and really clean. The drive here from Fort William was very picturesque.

Visiting the area of Arisaig/ Mallaig to see the Small Isles. Decided to take day trips with the "MV Sheerwater", at Arisaig Marine, based at the boatyard in Arisaig. Took 2 trips, to Eigg and Rum. Boat takes you to the islands' harbours and lets you know what time you need to be back for the return journey. Very fortunate... More

We took the wildlife cruise from Luss to Muck. It was an overcast day at the start and raining heavily on the way back. What an awesome day!! We saw seals (and a whole seal colony on Muck), sharks, a whale, Dolphins. Each time something was spotted the skipper slowed right den and turned off the engine - exciting would... More

Having previously been to Eigg on the "proper " ferry we decided to go to Muck on the Sheerwater. It is that closer to the road junction at Fort William than going further to Mallaig. The boat is that much smaller and more of a local pleasure craft than a ferry but unfortunately the crew did not fully exploit this... More

We chanced a trip to Eigg in very poor weather - heavy rain and wind. The sailing was absolutely fine, a little bouncy at times but nothing too serious. I would recommend in these conditions that you sit inside or under the tarp as people outside at the back got very wet when the waves came over! It was not... More

But the sun came out and the trip to EIgg was exciting. 30 minutes in the characterful cafe then onto Muck with seals and puffins on the... More

My wife and I took a day trip on the MV Sheerwater in June to the island of Rum. The boat leaves from Arisaig harbour and takes about 1 ½ hours to get to Rum. You can buy your tickets in the harbour shop and we paid £25 each for the return trip. The boat is medium size and takes... More
