Water doesn't get much more mysterious than this 23 mile stretch running...

Water doesn't get much more mysterious than this 23 mile stretch running through the Great Glen in the Highlands of Scotland.There's no better way to experience Loch Ness than by boat. Jacobite's award winning tours and cruises get you onto the water and into the heart of this iconic landscape. This is a whole lot more than simply sight-seeing. We've been running trips on and around Loch Ness for over 30 years and most of us live here.

This was an excellent tour which gave us enough information throughout. Our tour guide Alan was very nice and funny which made it an enjoyable trip. I would've loved it if the tour was longer because I was having so much fun but it was good value amd I would recommend it to anyone.

The tour begins at the bus station in Inveness, which is very near the train station (2 or 3 blocks walk). I walked there from my B&B. The bus is easy to find, as it says "Jacobite" on it. Our driver was Mike, and he did an excellent job. He explained everything we would do before the bus left the... More

We went on the Jacobite tour on a coach with Alan as our driver. He was very knowledgeable, funny and interesting to listen to. Touring round Inverness and along the Loch we got lots of the history of the region. We decamped to a boat trip along the Loch which was "invigorating" and offered spectacular views. Getting off at Urquart... More

Very nice view, I took my guest there, they loved it. And one of the lady that works there was so nice that she gave us ride back to Inverness rather than taking a taxi back.

We took the 4 hours (Sensation) tour to Loch Ness and Urquhart Castle with Jacobite. We were a bit unsure at the beginning (£33 per person sounds a lot), but it was well worth every penny! The guide, Allan, was hilarious. Funny and witty he provided endless information about Inverness, Loch Ness and pretty much everything one wants or doesn't... More

Stayed at Inverness opposite the castle. Tried weather spoons for food - Indian by the bridge - Chinese by the bridge and carvery by the bridge. The food and the people were lovely. Went to lochness with Jacobite tours. Great place to visit.

I did the 7-hour Loch Ness cruise and bus tour on a solo trip to Inverness. The bus tour guide was a lot of fun and took us to an ancient cairn and the Loch Ness museum, then dropped us off at Castle Urquhart. After some time to explore the castle, we boarded a boat to tour the lake. I... More
