Below are comments we've received on our visitor feedback forms......
"We have just returned from a fabulous holiday in Scotland and hired a boat from Caley Cruisers to sail up Loch Ness right through to Fort William. Caley Cruisers provided us with excellent customer service and care. The boat we hired was spotlessly clean and in immaculate order throughout. Equipment on the boat including galley ‘stuff’ (pots n pans) was of a high standard. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience with CC and would recommend them to others wishing to take a similar holiday. No doubt we’ll return some time in the future. The scenery was outstanding too!" - KR, Taransay, July 2014
"We have had around 35 boating holidays from around 20 different boatyards. About 10 years ago we "found" Caley Cruisers and have been with no-one since. This is our 5th trip and our only regret is we didn't find them sooner. Best looking, best maintained, best equipped boats. Outstandingly helpful and pleasant staff. Cannot fault anything in any way. Already booked Balmoral for same week next year!" - MT, Balmoral Class, July 2014
"Smashing holiday & friendly, happy faces start to finish- lovely!" - ER - Eriskay Class, June 2014
"Both boat & handover procedure exceeded expectations. We last hired a boat 20 years ago - it was a disaster and we handed it back after a couple of days - you have restored our confidence in boat hire! We were very impressed with the condition of the boat, especially the cleanliness" SK - Mull of Kintyre, June 2014
"The boat was in very good order but I was particularly impressed with the paper instructions and advice provided. The navigation chart is well thought out and told me all I needed to know" AP - Mull of Kinytre, May 2014
"We had a fantastic holiday from the minute we arrived at Caley Cruisers. The service is 2nd to none. Thank you to everyone involved. Would highly recommend you and will do!! N&GP, Eriskay, April 2014

Caroline Whitehurst, Highland Glen, October 2011
"We loved our holiday and were very impressed with all your staff. I hope Caley Cruisers goes from strength to strength!"
Nick Edwards, Highland Monarch, April 2011
"I first came across Caley Cruisers in the 1970’s, when conducting a Loch Ness Monster hunt for the BBC Children’s Programme, Blue Peter, when I spent several days filming on a cruiser with the company’s founder, the wonderful Jim Hogan. Over the past 25 years my wife and I have cruised the Caledonian Canal on four occasions, each time with Caley Cruisers. In 2010 we took a Highland Monarch with another couple, and had perhaps the best holiday ever. There is always something new to do on the canal, the restaurants en route are excellent, and the boat itself had lots of space and every facility. Everything is taken care of, and the instruction before setting off means that you leave for your holiday with great confidence in your own ability to get the best out of the boat. I would, and have, recommended Caley Cruisers to all our friends. It is a holiday on which we can take our dogs, so it really ticks all the boxes. It’s a long way to Inverness from the south of England, but, my word, it is worth the trip. Quite beautiful"
