Just wanted to say my husband and I had the best time. It was the first time on a RIB for both of us and I would thoroughly recommend it, it was fantastic! If you want to view Loch Ness this is the way, several photo opportunities and seeing the castle from the Loch was amazing! Waterproof clothing supplied and shades. Fun times getting the trousers off but all worth it. Thanks again x

Thank Sarah C

So glad that your first time on a RIB was enjoyable Sarah and that you had a good time. Thanks a lot for your review and hope the wrestling with the trousers wasn't too tiring and allowed you to enjoy the rest of your trip!

We went on the tour with Robbie at the end of the Easter holidays, we got a fantastic day for it.
My 2 sons loved the whole thing, but their obvious favourite were the really fast parts, doing doughnuts in the water! I loved the music, the stories and the yummy hot chocolate.
I would do it again, and couldn't recommend Robbie and his wee Beastie highly enough.

I went with my 2 younger brothers (10,6) and my Mum and Dad! It was really great, loved the songs that were playing! My 2 favourite bits were the Hot Chocolate at Urquhart Castle and the high speed donuts at the end! The information and the interesting facts were really cool! Overall it was a great family trip!

One of the best things we’ve ever done, my 5yo said she preferred it to Disneyland rides! The perfect level of adrenaline and excitement whilst still feeling completely safe. We’ve done the Jacobite cruises before on the bigger boats which would still be good for under 5s or anyone pregnant or with mobility probs who can’t do this one, but for us this was so much better! Its great for people who don’t like crowds as there are only 10 seats, we were very lucky and were the only ones on! Robbie was very pleasant and provided waterproofs and life jackets, and the music was perfect to go with it, Amy MacDonald, Fratellis etc! Much better value for money than the other tours, and being lower in the water we found it more comfortable too. Will definitely do it again!

Hi Afboarei, Wow I am so incredibly humbled by this review of The Beastie Boats so soon after we started! It really does mean a lot, especially that your 5yo preferred it to Disneyland rides! Glad you also thought the music was good! Look forward to seeing you again :)
