UPDATE: End of Season

We had our last trip of the year on Sunday up Loch Etive with bright winter sunshine, fantastic views and so peaceful.

The boat comes out of the water today for the winter, we will be back ready for trips again in late March 2019.

Thanks to our regular customers for your continued support and to our new customers for choosing to take a trip with us this year. Hope to see you all again soon.

Best wishes from all at Etive Boat Trips 🙂
