Loch Ness Sightseeing Cruise Including Urquhart Castle
From US$37.80
Overview
Forget about the hassle of driving or bus timetables on this coach and boat trip from Inverness. Enjoy seamless transportation to the harbor where you embark upon a cruise on Loch Ness, taking in the beautiful Highland landscape and, perhaps, monster-spotting opportunities along the way. Disembark at Urquhart Castle and take advantage of free time to explore before returning to Inverness.
What to Expect
Your tour begins with a pickup from central Inverness. Settle into the air-conditioned coach as it travels out of the city and into the surrounding countryside. 

Enjoy enlightening and entertaining commentary from your guide throughout the tour. Upon arrival at the pier, board the cruise boat and take in the sweeping views as you cross the still waters of Loch Ness toward the romantic ruins of Urquhart Castle. Keep your eyes peeled for "Nessie," the fabled Loch Ness Monster, along the way.

Enjoy free time to tour the crumbled castle that, in its 500-year-long role as a medieval fortress, has a long and bloody history. Learn about King Edward I’s invasion in the 13th century, its importance during the 14th-century Wars of Scottish Independence, and multiple raids during the 15th and 16th centuries.

Snap photos of the Highland vista from the castle before re-boarding the coach for the return journey. Your tour concludes back at the original departure point.

Loved the castle ruins

To be honest I would have been happy to give thec30 min cruise a miss and go straight to the castle. The boat was very crowded and the majority of passengers were not interested in the commentary and kept loudly talking in their own language...More

Beautiful Cruise and Urquhart is Amazing

Highly recommend - especially from the Clansman! Convenient and easy access to boarding area. Tour bus showed up for our 9am but still plenty of seating, on both levels, even with the large crowd. Loch cruise is gorgeous, with plenty of photo ops for scenery...More
