Owner description: Many people believe that this brooding lake in Northern Scotland, 21 square miles in size at an average depth of 800 feet, could certainly hide a large dinosaur-like "monster," the lake's long-time and elusive resident.

One of the most amazing trips I've ever made! We wanted to go to unveil the myth, and found an amazing tour through the highlands, facing sun, rain, snow, stormy weather, in short...all in one day! the place is magical, the views are awesome and the stories of monarchy and conquers just thrilling!

I took a boat cruise around Loch Ness as an optional add-on to my tour across the Highlands. I am so glad we had this opportunity. The lake was beautiful, and our boat ride coincided with sunset. (If you care about such things, the boat had a warm interior cabin and free wifi!) I have the most amazing photos from... More

We stayed about 20 miles from Loch Ness but drove along side it in several days and also took a boat trip on it during our holiday. We took our boat trip from Fort Augustus and it was approximately £10pp for an hours cruise. Reasonable value but you only cover a part of the Loch but given its size that's... More

I have lived on a hill overlooking Loch Ness for the last year. Very desolate - rather dull - and totally lacking in activities. Nothing ever happens on the water - no sailing, no regattas, no motor-boating - not even a marina. There may be reasons for this - winds, cold water, building regulations etc, but this all makes it... More

We entered via Inverness, stopped at Foyers Falls, then continued all the way to Fort Augustus, where we stayed at Morag's Lodge. The water was as still as glass and it didn't look very interesting in the rain. However, a couple of hours later the sun came out, we bought some fish and chips, and we went down to the... More

I really loved it, searching for Nessie (who never came to see me...) It's a nice and calm place. The only bad thing is that the souvenirs shop are really expensive. So I didn't have quite money this day to buy something.... (I went there in 2010, nnot 2014)

A beautiful part of Scotland. We looked long and hard for Nessie but didn't find her. Make sure you take a trip out on one of the Tour Boats to get the best information. Lots of places to stay and lovely food available.
