Amazing boat cruise on the hunt for Nessie. Staff were lovely, very polite and informative. On the cruise was a gentleman who was full of knowledge, kids loved it and talked about the cruise the rest of the weekend. Definitely a must for all.

This is a great way to see the Loch. We did the two hour cruise with live commentary, very interesting and informative. A beautiful boat, the Jacobite Rebel. Snacks, drinks and small shop on board.

We enjoyed a beautiful cruise thru the canals up to Loch Ness, ending at Urquhart Castle. The commentary was delightful, and the scenery was gorgeous. A nice way to start your morning of energetic touring.

Had a lovely tour if a bit cold one on Loch Ness. Urqhart Castle was the highlight of the tour with lots to see and lovely views.

The discovery tour is 2.5 hours. It starts with a boat trip leaving Inverness and drops you at the castle. A coach will then take you back to Inverness.
