“Brilliant trip, booked again for next year”
Reviewed 30 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We had the Strathspey boat, ideal for four adults although it can sleep up to 6 (if there are six of you though I'd suggest hiring a bigger boat). Both cabins have en suite toilets/shower so it was perfect for us, as two couples. We were all novices but after an hour of instruction from Derek we were off. The first berthing at Urquhart Bay was by far the most difficult and a bit hairy! However every day we got better at the berthing and tying up. The boat had everything we needed and the lock keepers and other boaters are all so helpful and friendly. We really loved the whole adventure, so much so we are provisionally booked for next year!

We have just spend a 4 night break on Balmoral cruiser. She is a beautiful boat, kitted out with all we could have wanted. Fantastic company would highly recommend everyone needs to experience the Caledonian Canal in a Caley Cruiser.

“Nice Relaxing Holiday”

Arrived at Inverness airport from Birmingham, 20 minute taxi ride to boat yard. Very friendly greeting on arrival. We were directed to our boat and given time to have a look around before given safety briefing and boat handling instructions. We then took the boat along Caledonian canal to Neptunes staircase and back. We had a lovely relaxing week, locks and bridges no hassle as they are operated by lock keepers who are very friendly, weather was good as September can be. If your thinking about doing this trip I strongly recommend Caley Cruisers.

“Stunning time aboard Stathsprey”
Reviewed 7 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

people found this review helpful

A wonderful company to deal with. The instruction and maps were first class. Great safety instruction upon arrival. First impression of the boat was good. Looked to be well maintained. Got on board and was so happy. Brilliantly well laid out boat that was really comfortable. Wonderful amount of equipment in the kitchen with a full sized fridge and cooker. Two really comfortable double beds in bow and stern. We only had three people on board so had loads of room. Boat was really responsive and easy to manoeuvre. Stern and bow thrusters made life a lot simpler when mooring or locking.
This was our first time in the Highlands and what an amazing way to soak up the views. This area is quite simply magnificent. The views will remain with me forever.
The facilities on the canal are brilliant. We used the showers provided at the mooring sites and they were clean, tidy and had endless hot water. A number of locations also had washing and drying facilities if you needed them.
I could go on and on, but if you want to see Scotland in all its splender, then treat yourself to a Caley Cruiser. Simply brilliant
