My husband and I loved it so did our 2 springer spaniels. Friendly and helpful service, boats easy to use, scenery spectacular as you go up the canal and have views that include ben nevis. Would highly recommend and you won't be disappointed. One of the best tourist attractions in the area as you get to see so much at your own pace.

These are great little boats, very peaceful and very easy to drive. We took our children aged 5 & 6 out on one and they loved it - especially taking turns driving the boat! Lovely passing views of Ben Nevis too. Great value for money, would recommend for families of all ages.

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.
