We picked up a boat for a 4 hour hire and travelled across Loch Sunart and into loch teacuis, had a great time watching the seals basking in the sunshine.

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.
