We had a great day out on the boat with Andy. It’s worth remembering that the area is quite remote so internet connections are slow and can be intermittent sometimes and that mobile phone reception is very limited. It’s also worth noting that Andy has...More

We booked a trip. Mr. Jackson cancelled the trip. We asked by e-mail for an alternative trip or date. No response. And no refund of our deposit (£50). We send him several e-mails. He doesn’t respond and no money back. Very dissapointing.

Booked online. Tried to contact via e-mail with a question and received no reply so 'phoned the day before the trip to be informed that boat broken and trip off! I wonder whether they would have let us turn up and then tell us.

Young Barnaby carefully and patiently explained to us how to operate the boat and all the safety aspects. We then spent a wonderful afternoon sailing around the lochs observing the seals and porpoises. Weather was perfect. Would definitely recommend chartering a boat from this company.
