Our most popular trip is a two hour sightseeing and wildlife watching circuit of the island of Ronay. This includes exploring some of the many hidden bays at the foot of Eaval which is the highest hill on North Uist. A pair of sea eagles have been nesting in the area for the last three or four years, and we are able to watch them almost every day, often within thirty meters of the boat.
The two hour trip costs £30 for adults and £20 for under 16's, a small increase on last year.
When the summer arrives and the tide is suitable we do all day trips to the Monach Islands. We leave Kallin Harbour between 8 and 10 am and enjoy a two hour cruise to the Monachs, the first hour of which leads through the serpentine channels of the North Ford. We anchor the boat and ferry people ashore where they can explore these fascinating islands for four or five hours before making the return trip in the late afternoon. Please note that a certain amount of agility/ mobility is required to climb into a dinghy or alternatively walk off the boat onto an old jetty which has fallen into disrepair. Passengers go ashore at their own risk!
The cost for the Monach Island trip is £70 for adults, £40 for under 16's. Payment is by cash or cheque on the day.
Booking is essential, though no prepayment is neccessary.
