Overview

For those who adore history as much as they love mystery, a Loch Ness tour with a visit to Urquhart Castle is a much. Look out for Nessie, the loch’s notorious monster, as you cruise to the medieval ruins, then learn about the role the castle played in Scotland’s long battle for independence.

What to Expect

Make your own way to Loch Ness' Clansman Harbour, a 25-minute bus ride from Inverness Station, and choose between indoor and outdoor seating on the comfortable boat. Cruise across Loch Ness, keeping an eye out for Nessie, the notorious monster that’s rumored to frequent the lake, to Urquhart Castle.

Here you might choose to explore the ruins independently with help from the informative visitor center, or save your funds, capture some pictures, and wander the shore. After your visit, board the boat to return to Clansman Harbour, and travel to your next destination independently.

The cruise itself was relaxing, but there wasn't that much to see. It was pretty cold and windy so we had to stay inside. The audio narrative however was informative if a bit hard to hear. When we got to Urquhart Castle the sun came...More
