Set amid the Scottish Highlands, these self-driven, Eco-friendly, silent, electric motor boats are easy to use and place you inside a 360 degree panorama of breath-taking beauty of Ben Nevis and other Munros in the Fort William area. All ages catered for and safety equipment supplied. A perfect introduction for children to steering and skippering a boat in safe sheltered waters. You can find us at the Scottish Canals Neptune`s Staircase Activity Hub where you can enjoy further attractions as kayaking, bike hire, fishing and other activities.

Having 3 teenagers in my family I spotted this as a novel way to spend an hour. Electric power boats sounded a bit tame and I thought myself and my wife would watch the kids sail round in circles for an hour. When I saw...More

It was a lovely sunny day and hiring out a boat made it even better. I was driving by with some friends and thought it looked like fun - which it was! The staff are friendly and the location is beautiful.

We went with the family and took out 2 boats. We all enjoyed a lovely relaxing afternoon on the canal, the smiles on our faces said it all. It's a beautiful setting with great views of Ben Nevis, perfect for photographs!

We tried this as a friend lives closeby. It's a great location and the boats are great fun. It's a really nice way to explore and do something different and although we were two adults, children would definitely enjoy it too.
