From Inverness: Loch Ness and The Highlands Day Tour

1. From Inverness: Loch Ness and The Highlands Day Tour

Try to catch a glimpse of the Loch Ness Monster on this day trip from Inverness. Board an airconditioned coach and travel to iconic Highlands locations like Fort Augustus, the Caledonian Canal, and Invermoriston. Leave Inverness in the morning and follow the beautiful Caledonian Canal to its source at Loch Ness. The loch is home to the famous Loch Ness monster, affectionately known as Nessie. You'll spend most of the morning at Loch Ness, allowing plenty of time to look for Nessie. Choose to take a 5-star cruise across the loch to Urquhart Castle. If you’d rather see the loch from the shore, then stay on board the bus and your driver will take you to Urquhart Castle. Explore the ruins of the castle, enjoy the visitor center, and soak up the atmosphere of Scotland’s most famous Loch. Your tour continues to Invermoriston, where you'll pause to take photos of the bridge and Columbus Well. Afterwards, journey to Fort Augustus, the furthermost point of your full-day Highlands tour. Fort Augustus is a small town of only 650 people and a perfect spot to watch boats passing through the Caledonian Canal while you enjoy your lunch. After lunch you'll begin the journey back to Inverness, stopping at the Falls of Foyers. The waterfall was a favorite retreat for poet Rabbie Burns, and is truly breathtaking. Enjoy plenty of time here to appreciate the landscape before continuing on to Dores to see Dores Beach. Spend a short while wandering the sandy shoreline before boarding the bus for the final time and returning to Inverness.

TONKS!! Our guide Tonks made the entire tour amazing. She’s a local who’s obviously very passionate and knowledgeable about her beautiful country and it showed during our full day tour. The tour itself was great, stopping at a lot of local attractions/spots we’d have likely missed just running around the area on our own. Tonks was kind enough to stop and let the group take pictures on a few beautiful stretches. Something other guides we’ve had didn’t do. In my opinion, most tours are predictable but the guide is someone that can make it special and for us, Tonks made it a great experience. She played great Scottish music during the drives and pointed out interesting local spots. She answered everyone’s questions enthusiastically. At the end of the tour she thanked us and even got emotional since it was her first tour since COVID which showed us just how much she cares. Tonks, if you read this, thank you again from your Canadian friends sitting in the front row. :)

I really enjoyed this tour - our guide (Gillian) was informative and shared a lot of general knowledge and Scottish history along the journey. Gillian was also great in stopping along the way for some photo opportunities. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone who would like to see the beautiful scenery of Inverness and the Loch Ness.

Ryan, Our guide for the day was fantastic! really friendly, knowledgeable and very accomodating. First time visiting Inverness and it was my birthday, so the Highlands and Loch Ness tour was our planned excursion. We'll worth it this part of Scotland is beautiful. If I get the chance I will definitely be coming back.

It was a very enjoyable experience. The day flew by with great commentary/insights from our driver Julian and he was good craic! The bus was comfortable and we never felt rushed. Would highly recommend.

Guide was exceptional full of information and gave a good view of the highlands and Inverness and the surrounding areas and the history the Jacobite war
