They are a lovely way to explore Loch Tay independently.  Pack some drinks and lunch and rest your paddles on one of the lovely loch shore beaches – the ideal day out with friends or family.

Boats hires are from 9:30AM-12:30PM for morning bookings and 1:30-4:30PM each day from our activity office on the shore, opposite The Boathouse Restaurant.

Power Boats for Hire (with and without fishing permits) – Available April – October

At Loch Tay Highland Lodges we have 2 types of boat available to hire for pleasure trips on the Loch and for fishing.

Our Pebble Boats only have a 4hp outboard engine and are tiller-steered from the engine itself.  These have a maximum carrying capacity of 4 people and are fine for a slow potter around the loch.  They can be hired with or without fishing permits.

Our Cruisers have 10hp engines, a maxiumum capacity of 6 people and have a steering console at the cabin, so much more intuitive for folks with no experience to drive.  Given the bigger engine, these are a better bet for really exploring Loch Tay for picnics and sightseeing. 

Hire costs include buoyancy aids (compulsory for all) and one tank of fuel. Note that our buoyancy aids suit age 3+.


Pebble Boats Full Day: £80

Cruisers Full Day: £115

Boats are available between 9:00am and 4.00pm.

For more information on rules and regulations on fishing on Loch Tay, see the Fishing in the Trossachs website.


Please note, there is no need for you to be staying at Loch Tay Highland Lodges to hire a boat, non-residents more than welcome.
