Frequently Asked Questions

What can I expect on this cruise/coach tour?
These enjoyable tours are a combination of luxury touring by coach and a relaxing cruise on the mysterious waters of Loch Ness.

Later in the tour you’ll board a cruise boat for a monster-spotting cruise on Loch Ness!
All Cruise/coach tours include a visit to Urquhart Castle which stands guard overlooking the dark waters of Loch Ness. Once one of Scotland’s mightiest strongholds, Urquhart’s strategic location gave it a key role in the Scottish battle for independence. You’ll have access to the visitor centre which includes a fascinating display of artefacts and audio-visual presentation that tells the story of the castle’s history.  All cruise boats feature seating inside and out, heated saloons, refreshment bars, toilets and free wifi. A popular feature is the sonar display – keep a careful watch and you could be first to spot Nessie!
