Loch Lomond Boat Trips

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.

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.
