Another highlight of my holiday. The Sileas leaves from Glenfinnan, just outside the hotel. They offer various cruises but the best one is the Wednesday one to Acharacle. The scenery is spectacular and breathtaking. On leaving you can clearly see the Glenfinnan monument and even...More

If you go to Lock she'll, and don't go on this cruise you will never know what you missed. It was an outstanding time, the boat captain and extremely nice gentleman and very attentive and informative.

Many thanks for your great review and sentiments. It was a pleasure to help as much as I could. Shame the eagle didn't show up again, but that's what makes seeing them more special.

This cruise is on a small old boat with a salty captain and charming hospitality. The views of the mountains and hills are specular as is the captain's knowledge of the landmarks and history. This is a small family operation and worthy of support.

This morning cruise is timed well so you can watch the Jacobite Steam Train cross the impressive Glenfinnan Viaduct, a sight you will always remember. The cruise then carries on with spectacular views of the Loch and surrounding area. The captain provides a wealth of...More
