What to expect

This tour lets you discover all the marvelous views and secrets of Loch Ness!

You'll leave Inverness and travel up to Loch Ness where you have the choice to either go on a 1-hour cruise around the loch or a 30-minute cruise to Urquhart Castle, where you can disembark and explore the ancient ramparts.

You'll then continue on your journey to Drumnadrochit, a popular destination for keen monster hunters! Here you can look around for gifts and sit down for a spot of lunch. Next, venture to Invermoriston, where you can wander through lush forests and cascading waterfalls.

Your journey continues South West along the lochside to the furthermost point of the tour at Fort Augustus. Here you can take a picture of the boats coming in through the Caledonian Canal.

After a twisty drive through forested landscape, you'll then arrive at the forest community of Foyers. At this stop, you can walk downhill through native pine trees to see the hidden-away Falls of Foyers. This stunning waterfall was a favorite spot for Robert Burns, and if you’re lucky, you may spot a dashing red squirrel.

From here, you continue back along the Lochside and to Dores at the eastern end of the Loch. This final viewpoint is the most striking vista of Loch Ness and the Great Glen rift valley. After a lovely day of exploring, you'll then return back to Inverness.
