The 'Maid' is the perfect venue for a variety of private events and functions, offering a stunning setting with unbeatable views. Whether you're planning an office party, a day out with friends, a family celebration, a corporate event, team building activities, or fun days, we can tailor our services to suit your needs.

For daytime events, guests can enjoy a leisurely cruise along the water, taking in the sights and sounds of the surrounding area. For evening events, we recommend keeping maximum guest numbers to around 60-80, as this is the maximum capacity for our heated lower deck. Space available will be limited by your entertainment and catering choices so please get in touch to discuss your specific requirements.


We are pleased to offer a variety of entertainment options for your event, subject to availability. You can choose from our resident Jazz band, DJ and disco, 'Pure Malt' Folk band, or the talented vocalist Cailean McLean of CMC Vocals to set the mood and keep your guests entertained throughout the day or evening.

When it comes to catering, we have a range of options to suit all tastes and budgets. Starting at £6.95 per person for coffee and cakes, our catering services can also include our popular BBQ Rib eye steak supper priced at £10.00 per person. We are able to accommodate most dietary requirements with advance notice, and are happy to work with you to create a menu tailored to your preferences.

Please note that all beverages must be purchased from our well-stocked bar, where we offer a diverse selection of wines for those looking to provide a welcome or celebratory drink to their guests.

If you are considering booking a private charter with us, please reach out to us via email to express your interest. Be sure to include the desired date and the type of event you are planning, so we can create a personalised package that meets your requirements.
