Glendale Boat hire is wonderful. Felt very safe as there there is great backup. Very casual, the 2 men who run the company are brilliant to deal with. Well worth the money. Don't hesitate to hire.

Hired Trikki the boat from this company and were very impressed with their friendly, professional attitude. Had clear instruction and enjoyed an hour exploring Gairloch with our dog in the boat. Saw lots of seabirds, seals and a porpoise. Highly recommend this company.
