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.
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.
Cruise Loch Lomond have a large range of Loch Lomond boat tours leaving from various points. Such as the Capercailie, a 90-minute circular cruise from Luss, exploring the historic Lomond landscape, with live commentary on the marauding Vikings and feuding clans.
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.
Companies such as Loch Lomond Leisure and Portnellan Farm run a variety of speedboat tours on Loch Lomond. Cruise slowly through the islands and speed through open waters, enjoying magnificent and ever-changing views. This is a thrilling experience and a memorable way to see the loch.

Undisturbed site exclusivity'We couldn't have asked for a better venue for our wedding. The flexibility and service that the staff of the venue provided was amazing and our wedding turned out to be the perfect day we had always hoped for. We had site exclusivity and we certainly weren't disturbed! it was so nice taking over such a large space and knowing the only faces we would see were our guests. We had a drinks reception and marquee down on the beach for 230 people but the next morning we used the function room to put on a breakfast of bacon butties...
40th celebration'My husband and I came here to celebrate my 40th birthday and we truly had a magnificent time.
