This boat tour was one of the highlights of our 2week stay in the Scottish Highlands. Make sure to put this on your “must do” list. We were able to get really close to Castle Stalker too.

Alistair's boat tour has been the highlight of our holiday. So much to see, so much knowledge to share, a great storyteller and marvelous with young and old alike. Thank you so much Alistair. We'll be back!

Had a lovely tour of the bays around Appin and Lismore. Alistair was very knowledgable and had loads of great stories to tell. Stunning views, seals, wildlife and friendly chat. Not expensive either. Well worth every penny.
