Private boat hire options
When you stay at The Lovat, you’ll be able to choose from plenty of boat trips on nearby Loch Ness. However, if you’d rather hire a private boat, we can help you organise that too.
Enjoy the essence of true luxury when you stay at our Loch Ness hotel – book online or call us on 01456 490000 to book a room.
Explore the Great Glen from a different perspective on Lady Kathryn. This superbly crafted boat offers you comfort and relaxation as you soak up the Scottish scenery and wildlife. Gordon, your Captain, has a wealth of knowledge and passion for the area which he can share with you during the trip. You will also learn of Lady Kathryn’s particular treasures, such as the 1910 pre-Titanic wine cooler from the ‘White Star Line’.
Both day and hourly boat cruises are available to suit your mood.
Fort William Boat Trips
This is arguably the best route by boat as the scenery is more dramatic along Loch Lochy and the wildlife is in abundance with osprey sightings on occasion. You also have a direct view of Ben Nevis and Aonach Mor.
Fort Augustus Boat Trips
This is a more historical boat trip along the Caledonian Canal with views to Invergarry Castle and the Old Highland Railway
Sunset Boat Trips
Leave Laggan Locks and head towards the Letterfinlay Lodge Hotel. Hop off for a wee dram or pint on the perfect outside decking to enjoy a calm evening, then return at your leisure.
