A very nice trip up and down Loch Linnhe, but I think we could have had a better day weather wise. We left the quayside in sunny conditions albeit a bit windy, but the clouds and mist came in and Ben Nevis disappeared.
The boat ride was fun. We sat on deck and got blown around, and even came close to a soaking when the boat must have hit a small wave. The trip took us to a salmon farm ( salmon leaping) and a mussel farm and we then headed across the Loch to find seals, but unfortunately it wasn't the right day and there were none. This of course was not the fault of the crew, it's just your luck and I notice that another reviewer saw quite a bit of wildlife, so you take your chance.
The crew brought out blankets to keep us warm ( it was only July of course!!!!) and we had a good commentary for what we did see. The boat's skipper had good local knowledge even to the extent that when we docked he said "It will be raining in Fort William in about a quarter of an hour"....and it was!
I think that a good day would be better to take this cruise if you want to see more wildlife, but for an ordinary cruise on the Loch I would recommend that you tried Crannog.
