Loch Tay Safaris is part of a long history of boats on Loch Tay. The Loch Tay Steamboat Company operated five steamers, Queen of the Lake, Lady of the Lake, Sybilla, Carlotta, and Magpie in the loch’s waters from 1882 to 1949. In 2003 the Loch Tay Steam Packet Company commissioned Fegusons the Clydeside shipbuilders to build a new steamer “The Spirit”, which unfortunately never was launched due to a dispute over the welds. This can still be been seen on the north side of the loch, not far from Kenmore (opposite shore line to the Scottish Crannog Centre).
Loch Tay Safaris boat is also available for private charter.
