Mullardoch Boat?

Mullardoch Boat?


Postby tall-story » Tue May 21, 2013 9:43 pm

I am looking to do the Northern Mullardoch hills soon, I know there used to be a boat that would take you half way up the Loch and drop you off, which would save a couple of hours but this stopped :( But recently I have been hearing rumours that there may be a boat again :) Is there anyone who can confirm this as true or false??

I know a few members of my walking club are heading up there soon and they have arranged the boat, its costing them about £20 a head, but that is for a full boat, might be more expensive if less of you.

This was us in the boat way back in 2005, it's not a large boat, probably only takes about half a dozen, cannot remember the cost and I think it was 0900hrs sharp starting off, does not take long but worth every penny, it's a wet boggy slog otherwise.

A friend and I used the boat a few weeks ago, think the guy does a few runs depending on demand, it cost £20 per head with a minimum of 3 people or £30 a head if there is only 2.

Hi,

Anyone got any idea of 2017 Mullardoch boat cost? I know I can ring up, just curious as to what it was last year and now

Thanks,

Hi Swaley

Some friends and I used the boat last year. It was £25 per head for at least three people, with a maximum of eight passengers per trip. If there's more than eight he'll do a second trip, time between the two trips depending on the weather, but I think it's usually about 30 minutes.
