Hey, we are a small family run Boat Hire Business in the heart of St Fillans. We welcome all visitors, from babies to the elderly from experienced to novice and we even welcome well behaved dogs! We actually build and sell these boats too so we know our stuff. Whether you want to potter about or try your hand at fishing you can hire for 2, 4 or 8 hours and we even include all of the fuel. All life jackets are supplied free of charge. Please note that we pride ourselves on being a friendly, very safety conscious business and with the latter in mind, please note that if we do not think that weather conditions are safe enough for a trip out ..The boats will not be hired our until calmer conditions return. We have a Facebook page.....Check our some of our customers comments (the ones we remembered to tell that we were on Facebook!) Search St. Fillans Boat Hire............And for a good look at our Arran 16 Search Arranboats. Hope to see you all very soon.

Thanks for your lovely comments........our boats aren't fast but steady, no fancy dash boards-a simple steering wheel or throttle, a quick lesson and then you're off. Its a very laid back, leisurely way of passing a few hours with friends soaking up the stunning scenery...More

So happy you found the whole experience enjoyable, I think that sometimes people think the driving of the boat will be too difficult....and that couldn't be further from the truth! You have now seen our Loch from a totally different perspective.....great isn't it?
