Self drive boat hire tuition

This is individual and before you venture out. We carefully go through all aspects of the boat allowing time for any queries you may have.

We then cover boat handling skills and the "rules of the road" skills you will need to be out on the loch safely and competently.

Individual seafaring knowledge varies from person to person from complete novices to guests who know our boats and the loch almost as well as we do. Once we have covered the basics we are happy to take as long as is needed so that you feel happy, competent, comfortable and safe using the boat.

We are always on hand to answer any questions you may have.


Come and go as you please

Our private pontoon makes it so easy to come and go. Spend a perfect morning out on the loch diving, fishing, wildlife watching, photographing the amazing scenery and wildlife then pop back for coffee or lunch before having an afternoon out and about once more.

Wonderful stay
We sincerely thank Andy and Alliosn for a wonderful stay and genuinely nice host. We also enjoyed their lovely boat tour of the Loch, amazing, no other words. Must see Ardnamurchan point, furthest most land to the westof Scotland. Magnificent views, crashing waves and very peaceful mountains. We plan to come again. The Laga Lodge was beautiful, warm and inviting. Everything we needed. Love S. & S. 09/20/2017 Stephen and Shanley, Melrose MA, USA

A truly magical and fantastic holiday location
We have to give a very special thank you to Andy, Allison, Tom, Graeme et al and to Tag, Spider and Hendrix (the dogs) for making our stay so pleasurable. Lucy our Labrador is missing all the attention from her doggy friends. The fishing on Loch Sunnart was absolutely superb. The pioneer boats are superb to fish from even in a choppy sea, exceptionally well equipped with everything you might need when out on the water, from safety equipment to deep water anchor. We also had 2 truly fantastic days fishing from Laurenca II with Graeme and Tom (Graeme next year we will get that Skate). The soup that Andy makes for the boat trips on Laurenca is truly delightful. If only I could get the recipe! The wildlife is also amazing from seeing the herons, eagles, Porpoises swimming right beside the pioneer boat and the otters running along the shore beside the pontoon - a truly spectacular sight. We cannot wait to return to Laga lodge next year. We loved the holiday so much that I booked it before we left. Robert has never stopped talking about his week’s holiday. It was definitely a very memorable week. Best wishes and we look forward to seeing you next October and if we can before then - Alasdair, Liz, Robert , Mary (Granny) and Lucy the dog woof woof regular annual visitors to Laga Lodge

Wonderful day with self drive boat
We set off into Loch Sunart after very clear and helpful intructions on how to drive the boat and safety intructions to look at the wild life and fish. The 3 of us had an amazing day, saw lots of birds and caught a mackeral. The most amazing thing, which is often the case in Scotland was the light. We had 4 seasons weather, rainbows, mist and sun all giving extraordinary light and views. The trip was advertised as disabled access but so many aren't even if advertised as such, getting on with the tide in was fine then getting off at low tide day could have been tricky but the day was truely complete when they pulled the boat in by tractor and i walked off on dry land! Most wonderful people and most wonderful trip. Chris F. June 2014
