Loch Ness by Boat

from
£45.00

The highlight of this half day tour is either a cruise with the Jacobite cruise line or an exhilarating ride on a fast rigid inflatable boat. Either way, guests experience Loch Ness on the water itself, with the magnificent mountains surrounding the loch and a visit to the mysterious ruin of Urquhart Castle.

    All about the Loch Ness by Boat.

    The first stop on this tour is in Beauly, a historic market town at the head of the Beauly Firth. We have time here to look round the old Priory and visit Campbells of Beauly – as well as grabbing a coffee or tea at the Corner on the Square. A few miles west of Beauly, we make a stop at the Kilmorack dam to spot salmon and then continue to Dochgarroch lock on the Caledonian Canal. We then have the highlight of the tour, a 2 hour cruise by Jacobite boat or for the more daring, an 80 minute ride by fast boat! This is a cool way to be introduced to Loch Ness and commentary will be given related to the history and geography of this famous body of water. We finish the tour with a quick visit to the Highland capital, Inverness.
