Tours to Loch Ness
Without question the most famous stretch of water in the world is Loch Ness. Visiting this famous spot is certainly on many a visitor’s bucket list. Taking a Discover Scotland tour from Edinburgh or Glasgow is one of the best ways to see Loch Ness.
Loch Ness harbours many mysteries and we’ll help you unearth some of them, from its famous monster ‘Nessie’, to ruined Urquhart Castle that rises out of the mist on its shores. The loch forms part of Britain’s longest inland waterway, the 60-mile Caledonian Canal. It cuts through the Scottish Highlands from east to west at the spectacular Great Glen fault-line.
We have one day tours departing daily to Loch Ness from both Edinburgh & Glasgow. From Edinburgh we visit the historic hamlet of Fort Augustus which lies at the southern tip of Loch Ness. From Glasgow, you'll hug the loch’s shores and soon we encounter the medieval fortress of Urquhart Castle. It juts out over the deep and murky waters of the loch. Whether you depart from Glasgow or Edinburgh you will have the opportunity to take a cruise on Loch Ness.
On our three and four day tours to Skye, the Highlands and Loch Ness, from Edinburgh and Glasgow, we call in at Fort Augustus on the southern tip of the loch. Here you can watch the boats navigating the pretty canal locks. Alternatively, you can jump aboard a ‘monster-spotting’ cruise to see if you can glimpse our elusive Loch Ness monster. This option is also available on our six day island hopping tours to Mull, Iona, Skye, the Highlands and Loch Ness from Edinburgh and Glasgow.
We have various private tour options that visit Loch Ness including a 2 day adventure tour that offers a unique experience to explore the loch on a RIB ride. It's the perfect option for thrill seekers.
