At Loch Tay Highland Lodges there are 2 types of boat available to hire for pleasure trips on the Loch

Loch Tay Highland Lodge’s 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.

The 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.

Important: whilst there is no minimum age for going on the powerboats, everyone on board (children included) must be able to fit into a buoyancy aid.  Our smallest buoyancy aid is designed to fit children weighing 20-40kg with a chest size of 55-65cm (22-26 inches).

No fishing is allowed from these boats.   If you would like to fish while on the water please click here

Hire costs include buoyancy aids (compulsory for all), one tank of fuel.

Boats are available from 9:30am to 4.00pm.  You can return them sooner than 4:00pm if required.

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

Only responsible adults are permitted to drive the boats. There is no minimum age for passengers, but everyone going on the boat must be able to fit into a buoyancy aid. Our smallest buoyancy aids are Peak Sproglets which fit children weighing 12-25kg with a chest size of 50-60cm.

Please note that In Your Element hire out these boats on behalf of Loch Tay Highland Lodges.  They are not In Your Element boats.
