It was not just a Seal Spotting Loch Linnhe Cruise, it was an absolutely educational boat trip. The Captain told us about Scotland history, what the people of Scotland achieved and improved over time and how they did it, I enjoyed that trip a lot and learned a lot about Scotland. I strongly recommend this boat trip to everyone visiting Fort William. Thank you. I will come back, my soul's in Scotland.

Do not miss this trip. It was amazing. We were blessed with perfect weather and the views of the surrounding area were incredible. Great staff - the Skipper was knowledgeable and friendly and the young lady on the phone and check in was charming and understanding of our plight where we thought we would be late ( but weren't ). Worth every penny.
