    Macfarlanes have been running the mail service on the Loch since 1948. The mailboat delivers mail to the islands of Inchtavannich, Inchmurrin, Inchcruin and Inchfad. There is a one hour stop on Inchmurrin where bar lunches are available at Inchmurrin Hotel. Days and times vary.

    The boats can cater for large groups, parties, educational trips, and ramblers by arrangement.
