Hello from your hosts 🤗
It would be churlish of me to offer you all these fun things to do at The Gart without sampling them for ourselves 😎 The sunset champagne cruise was quite honestly one of my favourite experiences in Scotland (aside from our solitary hikes;) We left the boat on such a high and literally couldn't stop smiling all night. I'm tempted to make this a compulsory part of your stay with us!
The privately chartered yacht can accommodate 10 people and is moored on Loch Lomond. At 25 miles long this is the largest expanse of freshwater in the UK. You can add further fun to the experience by catching a seaplane from our local Loch Venachar. It is an unforgettable experience and no better way to appreciate the magnificent Scottish landscape #memoriesforlife
I was surprised to learn that Loch Lomond has 22 islands. Many of which have sheltered inlets and sandy beaches. As only 4 are inhabited, the remaining islands offer quiet sanctuary to a great variety of wild life, including golden eagles, nesting ospreys, red squirrels, otters and, (yes!) wallabies. The island of Inchcailloch is popular for its beautiful nature trail and beaches.
We can accommodate larger parties by adding on some top of the range Super Air Nautiquewakeboard boats, each boat added will increase capacity by 8. We can also add wakeboarding and SUP equipment 🖤
If you have never tried Stand Up Paddleboarding aka SUP I would highly recommend it. You can experience nature from an unexpected perspective. Discovering hidden beaches and wildlife in its natural habitat whilst gliding along to the sound of lapping water. It's a meditative and beautiful sport - and yes it gets you fit too!
Here are some of the packages we can offer:
Sunset champagne cruise – a one hour spectacular sunset cruise, a swim is optional
Whisky & Gin Tasting – Whisky & Gin tasting experience while sailing through the islands.
Cruise and climb – Ben Lomond or the Conic Hill
Island visit – Inchmurrin for a drink or some food, Inchcailloch for a historical nature walk and perhaps view some wallabies!
Watersports – enjoy wakeboarding and SUP on your private cruise, includes wetsuits and instructor
Sundowners and dinner– A sunset cruise through the islands with some drinks and arrival at dinner by yacht
A hello from the dashing and knowledgable Captain Richard and our lovely events manager, Chara.
You are welcome to purchase one of the house silks to add further glamour to the occasion 💋
Sail away with me honey, what will be will be 🖤🙏
