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 places you must go before you die.

It has a beautiful, stunning, incredible landscape. If you go to Scotland, you have to visit Loch Ness at least once.

I went on a cruise of loch Ness for my birthday it's a beautiful loch with stunning views and whether or not ness exist is up to each individual and although I did not see him or her on my cruise I still enjoyed my day. And would most definitely go again.

On a stunning sunny day in late March we drove down the road from Invergordon to the Great Glen to Loch Ness and back up the other side to Castle Urquhart and Inverness. One of the most scenic drives in the UK. Wouldn't have missed it for anything. Wonderful scenery.

Whether Nessie exists or not, and I'd like to believe he/she does, you're really only going to see two things here: 1. yet another cold gray loch; 2. stupendously overdone marketing of a dubious life form. If I were Yeti, I'd be jealous - where are my plushes?

Having been to this region in Scotland on more than a few occasions we were looking forward to visiting more of the loch towards the village of Drumnadrochit. There are a variety of excellent places to stop your vehicle to take pics of this vast loch and see the Urquhart Castle in the distance. For anyone who has not been... More

A fantastic beautiful experience. Loch Ness is an unspoilt vast expanse of natural beauty, the scenery, in all weathers, is absolutely to die for. On the North side of the Loch is the main road to Fort William and Kyle of Lochalsh, both journeys are excellent with the road to Kyle taking you past the 5 Sisters of Kintail which... More

The journey from Edinburgh was amazing. The snowy landscape of the Highlands on a winter morning is remarkable. Loch Ness is spectacular! Its mystery atmosphere is unforgettable! There is a very good coffee + souvenir shop. Definitely a must see in Scotland!!!
