The trip to Inverie takes about 30-45 minutes depending on which boat you catch.

The MV Western Isles is a traditional wooden passenger vessel with toilets and a bar on board. This a very special vessel that you can walk all round and fully enjoy the breath-taking scenery up the Loch. It does take a bit longer but well worthwhile.
