Loch Shiel Cruises
Loch Shiel · Glenfinnan · Inverness-shire
Unique "Eagle-Watch" cruises aboard the historic MV Sileas on the beautiful sheltered waters of Loch Shiel.
Share the local skipper Jim Michie's twenty years' experience of spotting Golden Eagles, White-Tailed Eagles, Red-throated Divers, Hen Harriers, Red Deer, plus a wide variety of other wildlife, while learning the History and Geology of this special, remote and unspoiled part of the Highlands of Scotland. Accessible only by boat, Loch Shiel is one of Scotland's most historically significant and unspoiled natural treasures. Carved out by retreating glaciers over successive ice ages, this 18 mile long freshwater loch has changed relatively little since then and can truly be called a Last Wilderness. Now you can cruise the magnificent and historic scenery of Loch Shiel in company with a friendly and knowledgeable local crew, with live commentary on the History and Wildlife of this beautiful region. Sileas has a bar, and tea, light refreshments and coffee are available. Meals and snacks are available ashore at each end of Loch Shiel. Sileas has Marine Safety Approval to carry 50 passengers, with covered and open seating on deck and a Saloon below decks.
