Loch Ness Temptation

from Inverness

Tour Highlights: Coach tour along the banks of Loch Ness, cruise on Loch Ness and visit to Urquhart Castle.

Loch Ness is known World-wide as the home of "Nessie”, the Loch Ness Monster. But there is so much more to Loch Ness than just monster tales! If time is precious then this is the best way to experience the Loch. On this well-planned tour you will discover sleepy villages, wonderful loch-side vistas and one of Scotland’s most famous castles.

From the centre of Inverness you will travel by luxury mini-coach along the banks of the Caledonian Canal to the Bona Narrows. It was here that St Columba is said to have come face to face with "Nessie” in 565AD!

Soon the canal broadens to become Loch Ness and we meander our way enjoying wonderful views at every turn. At the Clansman Visitor Centre a cruiser awaits to take us for a 30 minute cruise on Loch Ness. Here we will sail the deepest waters of the loch which is where Nessie has been seen the most – was that a wave or a fin?

Urquhart Castle is strategically located on a rocky promontory sticking out into the deepest part of Loch Ness. Whoever held this castle controlled the Great Glen and as such it changed hands on numerous occasions. The MacDonalds and the Grants held Urquhart as did the English for a period. It was deliberately blown up in 1691 and today the atmospheric ruins are ours to discover. There are great views over Urquhart Bay to savour and you can learn more about the castle at the award-winning audio-visual presentation.

All too soon it’s time to board your coach from the return journey to Inverness.
