Owner description: 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.

“Nice boat trip.”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

We just did the round boat trip which takes about an hour. Party of 5 including elderly and teen and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. Lovely scenery, loitered around Urquart castle so we could take pics. Bit chilly for me updeck.

“a monster of a cruse”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

a great way to see loch ness and all that is in it!! The best way to view the great glen gem. See Urquhart Castle from a different perspective and avoid the busy A82 in doing so.
The staff are first class and offer a good service

“Very good but ...”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

I went on a two hour cruise with an hour stop off at Urquhart Castle. En route I was advised to go to the visitor centre first. This turned out to be a mistake for me. It is full of the usual tourist tat and as a result I missed out on the historical stuff and a look round the ruins, which I was more interested in.

Overall however, I would totally recommend this cruise - just prioritise how you want to spend your time once you land at Urquhart Castle as you can't fit everything in to the time you have there.

“Amazing Day on Loch Ness”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

I am not a tour person, but not wanting to drive in Scotland chose this tour based on favorable reviews. Booked the Passion tour. From pick-up to drop-off, there were no disappointments. Kenny, our driver, was both personally likeable and thoroughly knowledgeable. The Loch Ness interpretive center was scientific and not myth promoting. Urqhart Castle was an enjoyable ruins to explore and the two hours allotted was plenty. The boat trip back through the loch and the Caledonian Canal was a beautiful end to a fully loaded day...the wifi on the boat was an added surprise. I definitely recommend this tour company.

“Amazing experience”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

We took the Temptation tour and both of us thoroughly enjoyed it. It included a 1 hr guided coach tour of Inverness, a 30 mins splashy cruise, 1 hr at the enigmatic and historic Urquhart castle and then back to city centre of Inverness. The cruise was the highlight as the loch was a bit rough...lots of ups and downs and splashes.....we enjoyed every bit of it.... sadly, Nessie decided to remain shy....

Dear Reviewer, we're delighted you enjoyed the Temptation tour and the cruise even though it was rather choppy. It's a pity Nessie was rather bashful on the day.
