Really enjoyed the leisurely cruise out on the loch. Alison was great and provided lots of interesting info on the birdlife, marine life and the geology of the area. Highly recommended.


This is a fantastic boat trip on Loch Glencoul, leaving from the slipway outside the Kylesku Hotel. Our children (9 & 11) got to handle live lobsters, crabs and starfish hauled up in the kreels. We saw porpoises come really close to the boat and watched seals basking on the rocks. The biggest thrill for us was fishing for mackerel. We pulled dozens up, sometimes 3-4 on the line and we got to take away as many as we wanted. Neil and Alison were brilliant, with excellent communication before and knowledgeable and enthusiastic during the trip. It was well worth the money and we would thoroughly recommend it. Top it off with a meal at the Kylesku.


Went on this boat trip last minute on a Sunday as Ullapool had nothing going on when we were there and I must say what a good choice we made the weather and scenery were fantastic. Lots to see and this is a amazing if the weather is right. The skipper even stopped and caught a couple of mackerel. Would highly recommend this to anyone.
