She can take a maximum of 12 passengers on board.

The Glenliath is a 45 foot Princess motor yacht a modern classic and the only way to travel in style, this superb boat is extremely comfortable with an upper flybridge to get the best views and sunshine.

FAQ’S

Everything You Need To Know

Do I need to book?

 

Operating dates :

We try to operate all year round so if you can’t book online then please give us a call

 

What time do I arrive?

Please ensure you check-in 15 minutes before your scheduled departure time in order to get kitted out. All our sailings leave on time so as not to impact later departures or other passengers on our tour. We are not able to provide you with wetsuits but will be providing lifejackets. Please ensure you are wrapped up warm – even on the hottest of days, Loch Ness can have a chill!

Is there an Age Restriction?

The minimum age for our RIB tours is 5 years old. Children under 15 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Children of all ages are welcome on board the Glenliath.

When do you operate?

Please contact us directly – info@beastieboats.com to arrange any specific needs or to structure a special private tour.

What should I wear?

We will provide you with lifejackets. Please ensure you wrap up warm – even on the hottest of days Loch Ness can have a chill! We also recommend you bring a change of clothes with you as you are in the ultimate splash zone!

Lifejackets do not have to be worn on board the Glenliath, however, are avilable in the event of an emergecy.

Will I get wet?

Warm clothes are required for your tour – waterproofs will be better!

Bring a change of clothes with you should you happen to sitting in a splash zone area.

Can I take pictures with my phone or camera?

Yes, of course! Make that Instagram profile so much stronger and remember to use our #beastieboats and tag @beastieboats!

Will I get seasick?

It is incredibly rare for anyone to feel seasick on The Wee Beastie. Our speedboat sits low in the water and the motion shouldn’t be too severe. Plus, we are in a Loch, not in the sea!

Can I change my booking?

We require a minimum 48-hour notice to amend/cancel a booking.

Do trips ever get cancelled?

Very occasionally we may have to cancel your tour with us. Passenger enjoyment and safety is our highest concern and if we feel weather conditions on the day are unsuitable we will cancel the sailing.

What happens if my trip is cancelled?

If we have to cancel your trip for any reason, any payment you have made for your tour will be refunded in full, or we will try to be able to accommodate you on the next available one that suits.

What if I’m pregnant or have a back problem?

Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate those who are pregnant or have back problems on board our RIB tours. Even on calm days if the weather changes or there is an unpredictable wave – motions could occur. For that reason we don’t recommend our tours for anyone with these conditions.
