Nick, our tour guide, was funny, witty and knowledgeable. Just the right amount of time. It was a little chilly but the boat had blankets for warmth. Lucky enough to see one of the ladies rowing teams out on the water. Very relaxing trip after two full days of walking.

It was a lovely experience. The stag wad well organised and the landscapes were beautiful. The cruise wasn't too long, just about right.
