Loch Ness Scotland

Loch Ness


This deep, dark and mysterious Highland lake is the stuff of legends.

Loch Ness and tales of its famous monster resident have captivated visitors to Scotland for centuries.

Everything about Loch Ness is epic. Created by volcanic activity, it stretches about 36 kilometres (22 miles) through the Great Glen.
Its murky waters plunge to 230 metres at their deepest. It is said Loch Ness contains as much water as the lakes of England and Wales combined.
