Welcome to Loch Goil Cruisers Motor Boat Hire, Lochgoilhead, Argyll on the West Coast of Scotland.

We have a fleet of modern boats each with an internal diesel engine, wheel steering for easy handling, half cover for shelter and seating for up to ten people. We recomend a maximum number of eight for comfort.

Our boats are perfect for enjoying the stunning scenery, diverse wildlife, picnicking and fishing. There are ducks, gannets, cormorants, oystercatchers, herons and porpoises in the loch and deer on the hills. Don't forget to ask the Instructor where you can find the seals! A coloured display card will help you spot the different species.

Our boats are very popular with the experienced fisherman. For the novice we can supply basic equipment. You might catch a mackerel, pollock, sea trout or even a salmon for supper!
