Overview

Enjoy this fantastic cruise under the slopes of Ben Nevis, Britain's highest mountain, onboard the historic vessel Souters Lass. The Skipper gives an entertaining and informative commentary as the boat cruises past a salmon farm, mussel farm and on to view Black Rock where seals can be seen most of the year. Look out from our deck or from our cosy viewing lounge for porpoise, otters and all kinds of sea birds and red deer.

I know that the Skipper had his dog on board but I'm not sure if you'd be able to take your own. Might be worth checking direct - Call: 01397 705589
