Sail from Luss through Loch Lomond’s island jewels and visit the beautiful Inchcailloch –‘Isle of the Cowled Woman’.

Explore our ‘treasure’ island and picnic or bbq on its peaceful shores, refreshments can be purchased in Luss Village Shop or Seafood Hamper from the Luss Seafood Bar.

Inchcailloch on the Highland Boundary Fault is one of the hidden gems in the National Park with something for everyone. Time ashore for a picnic on the beach; woodland walks.  Departure times allow for half or full day on this ‘Famous Five’ adventure island.

On this cruise, you can explore the special habitats of this National Nature Reserve. The island supports wildlife including otter and fallow deer, as well as native and migrant birds including woodpecker, siskin, goldcrest, crossbill, osprey and even capercaillie, to name but a few.

Saint Kentigerna supposedly set up a nunnery here and was buried on the island in 734 AD – hence its name. Take a gentle stroll and see what else you can find in the Burial Ground via Coffin Valley.

It’s a paradise for bird watchers, nature lovers and dog owners and there are bikes for hire and Rangers offering group walks into the silent woods at dusk.
