It’s not easy to squeeze a luxury speedboat, sparkling loch and prancing deer into a single Christmas stocking.
Unless, of course, it is a 5pm Christmas Gift for a 30-minute private cruise on Loch Lomond.
Up to seven people can go on this trip, meaning you could either treat a special someone or the whole family.
Whichever you choose, this is a present that will be remembered for a long time to come.
Luxury Loch Lomond cruise
This scenic speedboat adventure will set off from Luss Pier Sundays to Fridays, taking passengers on a private jaunt across the water.
Led by an experienced skipper, up to seven people will have the speedboat all to themselves. This means that you can either make it a romantic couple’s day or bring along family and friends (children are also welcome).
Although the boat will zoom across the water at an exhilarating pace, your skipper will slow it down at sights of interest, giving you a chance to drink in the scenery and take snapshots.
The trip takes 30 minutes but you can also upgrade to a 60-minute adventure if preferred. Please arrange this directly with Loch Lomond Leisure.
Make a day of it
This luxury Loch Lomond cruise is available from March until September, so you will have plenty of time to plan it. In fact, why not pair it with Valentine’s Day, a birthday or an anniversary?
There is plenty to see and do afterwards as well. For instance, Luss is a very picturesque village which would be fun to explore. You could also try to spot some ‘wee folk’ on the village’s Loch Lomond Faerie Trail.
Plus as Luss Pier is just a short drive from Cameron House, the Bay Tarbet Hotel and Duck Bay Marina, you could plan a lovely lunch or dinner for after your cruise. Or why not head on a shopping spree at Loch Lomond Shores?
Experience gorgeous scenery
We don’t need to tell you that Loch Lomond is one of Scotland’s most stunning natural beauty spots. And at 23 miles long, a luxury speedboat is perhaps the best way to see it.
Your thrill ride across the water will take you past some of the loch’s fascinating islands, including Inconnachan.
Get ready to sit back with the wind in your hair while whizzing across a glassy loch, surrounded by the emerald hills and glens of the Trossachs. If you are lucky, you might even spot the odd deer or golden eagle.
Happy boat cruisers
Loch Lomond Leisure has collected many positive reviews on TripAdvisor, earning it a Certificate of Excellence. Here is some recent feedback, edited for shortness:
‘Amazing. So just finished a 30-minute speedboat tour skippered by Sandy, what a lovely guy, very knowledgeable, friendly and clearly loves his job!

‘Great day, great staff…Everything was brilliant, we had the best time on the boat…The staff were absolutely brilliant, we had so many questions about the Loch which they were happy to answer. Booking staff, kayak staff and boat staff we can’t thank you all enough for all your help, you made our day special. Thank you all.’
Christmas gift inspiration
As this Loch Lomond tour welcomes up to seven people, you could turn it into several gifts in one (making Christmas shopping a whole lot easier this year).
Alternatively, you could impress your other half with how thoughtful you are by surprising them with a romantic day out for just for the two of you.
