FrontRunners: Scotch And Water

Few vantage points offer a finer view of Scotland’s mist-shrouded mountains and lakes than does a seat aboard Loch Lomond Seaplanes’ (+44.1436. 675030, www.lochlomondseaplanes.com) Cessna Turbo Stationair T206H. Launched in the spring of 2004, the optimistically named seaplane charter service leads airborne tours to the country’s golf courses, single-malt distilleries, fishing glens, castles, or all of the above. “Scotland has a natural network of waterways in its lochs and shoreline that the seaplane takes advantage of to get to the more inaccessible and hidden destinations,” says Capt. David West, a commercial pilot who divides cockpit time in his company’s lone aircraft with copilot Scott MacDonald. “Some of the best hotels and restaurants in the country are situated in beautiful but remote areas.”

Popular stops on Loch Lomond Seaplanes’ custom trips include private beaches and lakeside eateries. The company operates year-round, weather permitting, and West plans to expand his selection of seaplanes by the end of the summer.
