Loch Ness: Urquhart Castle Round-Trip Cruise

1. Loch Ness: Urquhart Castle Round-Trip Cruise

Climb aboard a small cruise boat for a truly inspiring tour of Loch Ness, departing from Clansman Harbour, just south of Inverness, and sailing as far as Urquhart Castle and back. Once on board, you will sail to the heart of Loch Ness, famous around the world for its mysterious - and elusive - monster. A selection of Scottish produce, as well as hot and cold snacks are available to purchase from the bar, if you fancy a wee dram as you cruise. Boats also have free WiFi for your convenience. Soak up the stunning mountain views as you cruise to the remains of Urquhart Castle, the envy of Scotland’s romantic ruins. Once you reach the blunt peninsula of Urquhart Bay, the boat will turn around and sail at back to Clansman Harbour.

From Inverness: Loch Ness Day Trip

2. From Inverness: Loch Ness Day Trip

Explore the Scottish Highlands on a bus tour from Inverness. Take scenic nature walks, surrounded by violet heather, rolling hills, and forests. Look out for the Loch Ness monster on the shores of the deepest loch in all of Scotland or embark on a 1-hour boat cruise on the loch at your own expense. Depart Inverness and journey to the deep freshwater lake of Loch Ness in the Scottish Highlands, where, on arrival, you will head to the Clansman Hotel for an optional boat trip across the water. Cruise around the loch for stunning views of the surrounding scenery, and get the chance to see Urquhart Castle from a different perspective. Look for the legendary Loch Ness Monster to work up an appetite, and then enjoy a delicious lunch at a nearby restaurant (not included). Venture on with a gentle drive to Invermoriston, to take a stroll by flowing rivers, an ancient summerhouse, and the ruins of a picturesque stone bridge. Continue to the wee village of Fort Augustus, nestled between Loch Ness and the 60-mile Caledonian Canal. Journey back towards Inverness, stopping for short walks and coffee breaks at the charming villages of Foyers and Dores before arriving back in Inverness.

I have never been on a guided tour before so I was slightly apprehensive on what to expect. This tour went above and beyond what I thought. It was so carefully planned, Gregor our tour guide gave us mountains of information and was friendly and helpful. He had an abundance of stories and there was never an ‘awkward silence’ on the bus. He took us to some incredible places on our tour, and often pulled over so we could see some breathtaking views. I 100% recommend this tour and specifically, our tour guide. Having never been to Scotland, I feel like I’ve now seen the true beauty of it.

Would thoroughly recommend the 50min trip to Urqhart Castle and back. Great views of the Loch and castle plus the benefit of a bar and friendly staff who are happy to share a story or 2. We took a trip along the Loch during winter and had fun despite the cold and rain thanks to Peter and the crew for entertaining our very active 7 yr old!

Nice boat trip down Loch Ness with great views of Urquhart Castle from out on the loch. Extensive views along the length of Loch Ness along the way.

The entrance was not clearly marked. It took a while before the guards to assist the line formation.

Guide was very informative about Lochness and everything about the Loch very relaxing as well
