Boat Trips on Loch Lomond
Boat trips on Loch Lomond are a great way to see both sides of the loch and all that surrounds it. Cruising the loch provides a unique perspective on its tranquil waters and islands, surrounding scenery, mountains and wildlife. Here are some boat trips to enjoy during a stay at Loch Lomond Waterfront.
Please see each individual service for departure points around the loch. Our closest is Balmaha, but you can also catch services at Balloch, Luss, Rowardennan and other points around the loch.
Balmaha Mail Boat
The Balmaha Mail Boat is an on-demand ferry service from Balmaha Boatyard to Inchailloch, one of the largest islands on Loch Lomond. It is a very short crossing and you must agree a return time with the ticket office at the start of your sail. The island is a stunning place to walk and explore.
Loch Lomond Waterbus
There are two waterbus services run by Sweeney’s Cruise Co. One between Balmaha and Luss and one between Balloch and Luss. These relaxing cruises take you to the ancient village of Luss. A beautiful and historic area, with plenty of lovely picnic spots and places to eat and drink. Tickets are available onboard the waterbus.

Additionally, Sweeney’s also offer a choice of Daily Loch Tours, departing from Balloch. Including the popular Experience Cruise, a one-hour loop of of Loch Lomond’s south basin. Or the Island Discovery Cruise, a two-hour tour revealing the secrets of the loch’s many islands.

Outstanding location'The location is outstanding - right on the edge of Loch Lomond with private water frontage and beaches. As a location for exploring, again this rates very highly. We easily accessed central Glasgow by train from nearby Balloch and also explored Stirling (particularly the castle and Wallace memorial), the Falkirk Wheel and even Perth and Pitlochry by car. It is a very peaceful place, which can only be disturbed on occasion by your neighbours but with the Slumber Charter in place, we had absolutely no problems overnight.'
