High above Skye…seaplane with a view

By Kevin Delaney
Skye’s not the limit for ambitious seaplanes boss David West. 
In fact, he is certain that the world famous island with its 360 degrees of breath-taking views is THE place to make his aerial business soar to even greater heights.
For David, who set up his successful Loch Lomand Seaplanes business in 2003, has now set his sights on opening up the fantastic vistas and views of the rugged misty isle with its high mountain ridges and stunning sea lochs to those who want to get a real bird’s eye view of all there is to see.
David, who has over 35 years experience in the cockpit, is offering flights of between 40 and 70 minutes which not only cover Skye but can go as far as the Outer Hebrides, Lochaber and the Wester Ross coastline, the Applecross Peninsula and heading towards Loch Torridon.   So, with up to 120 miles of incredible scenery to take in, not to mention a water based take-off and landing, it’s guaranteed to be an experience of a life time!
