Took the two hour round trip and really enjoyed it. Really informative captain relaying the stories of the loch. Great weather made it even more enjoyable. The steamship was perfect and some great coffee on board. Enjoyed it immensely.

Stunning scenery, enjoyed from The Steamship Sir Walter Scott. A comfortable and interesting trip. The warm blankets were very welcome on a day as chilly as when we were there, and made sitting outside possible.
