Full description
Climb aboard a small cruise boat for a truly inspiring tour of Loch Ness, departing from Clansman Harbour, just south of Inverness, and sailing as far as Urquhart Castle and back. Once on board, you will sail to the heart of Loch Ness, famous around the world for its mysterious - and elusive - monster. A selection of Scottish produce, as well as hot and cold snacks are available to purchase from the bar, if you fancy a wee dram as you cruise. Boats also have free WiFi for your convenience. Soak up the stunning mountain views as you cruise to the remains of Urquhart Castle, the envy of Scotland’s romantic ruins. Once you reach the blunt peninsula of Urquhart Bay, the boat will turn around and sail at back to Clansman Harbour.

    Firstly, the trip we took was not this one. We were called to re arrange due to COVID issues. The trio was fine - beautiful scenery, good descriptions by the narrator. What it lacked was interaction- my son was very excited to ask questions about Nessie but there was no opportunity to do so. Facilities were excellent.

    Very well organised onshore and onboard especially with all the covid restrictions currently. Made us feel safe and that our safety was not being compromised. Plenty space onboard with any seat position good to see all around. Staff very helpful. Good commentary about the Loch and Urquhart Castle Great experience and well worth value for money

    It was a wonderful experience. The loch and Castle are well the time. The staff and facilities are great. The experience was a bit trying as there was a family that thought it was a private boat and managed to be everywhere at once. But this has no bearing on the trip
