Whether you’re joining us for one of our daily sightseeing cruises, a celebration or a memorable corporate event, you’ll find our luxury fleet of boats are equipped for the occasion – all against the most beautiful of backdrops, Loch Lomond.
One of the longest running family businesses in Scotland, Sweeney’s Cruise Co. has operated boats on Loch Lomond since the 1880s, and in that time has come to know every inch of the Loch’s 23 miles, its varied wildlife, wealth of history, legend and folklore.
In the early days, the company ran on steam launches and rowing boats. Today it’s a different story. Managed by John Sweeney, the fourth generation of the family to work on Loch Lomond, with the help of his wife Catherine and three sons, Sweeney’s Cruises now operate the most luxurious fleet of passenger boats in Scotland.
This one hour circular tour of Loch Lomond’s South basin enjoys views of the magnificent Ben Lomond and passes a number of Loch Lomond’s stately homes and castles along the shoreline. Venture out towards Inchmurrin Island- the largest of Loch Lomond’s 33 islands and home to the ancient remains of Lennox Castle, which in the 14th century sheltered a fugitive Robert the Bruce before he was to become King of Scotland.
Island Discovery Cruise
Discover the legends and secrets of the islands of Loch Lomond, known as the jewels in her crown. This leisurely 2 hour circular cruise passes the world famous Loch Lomond Golf Club, explores the middle island of Loch Lomond sailing through an area know to locals as “The Narrows” and onwards to the village of Luss.
There is perhaps no sight more spectacular than the sun setting over Loch Lomond. This 75 minute cruise is a magical way to end any day, taking in the wonderful views of Ben Lomond and the Island of Inchmurrin.
Join the Luss to Balmaha waterbus service and stay on board for a one- hour circular cruise through the cluster of islands between the two villages on Loch Lomond’s east and west shoreline. Learn of the histories and heritage of these islands and see if you can spot one of the Ospreys that nest in the area.
