Look out for great views of Ben Lomond as you cruise over the fault line between the Highlands and the Lowlands.
Choose to cruise before lunch, at 10am, or after lunch, at 2pm.
A lively commentary during the cruise offers colourful insights into local lore, with tales that range from nudist colonies to wallaby farms.
The Boat House is a firm favourite with 5pm diners, as these recent reviews testify:
‘Great food. Lovely meal.’
‘Great loch side meal. Lovely food and great views.’
‘Absolutely brilliant. Went to The Boat House for my partner’s 50th birthday. The staff were first class and nothing was too much bother for them. The food was excellent – one of the guests said the fish and chips were the best she had tasted – can’t review better than that. Great place for a special event or just a lovely meal.’
Today’s Big Deal on a Loch Lomond cruise with lunch at The Boat House would be a great choice as a treat to mark a birthday or special occasion.
As we mentioned, with validity until the 30th of March, it would also make a lovely surprise for your nearest and dearest on Christmas Day.
A scenic cruise and an excellent lunch. That sounds like a ship-shape day out to us.
