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 our buoyancy aids suit age 3+.


Pebble Boats Half Day: £60

Pebble Boats Full Day: £80

Cruisers Half Day: £85

Cruisers Full Day: £115

Boats are available between:

  • 9:00am to 12:00pm,
