We stopped at Urquhart Castle and didn't really want to spend our money on another ruined castle tour. Struck up a conversation with the carpark attendant and he recommended this cruise to get a good view of the castle. It was just the perfect experience. A one hour cruise that gives you all you all you need to know about... More

My husband and I caught the first trip of the day. We parked at the Drumnadrochit Visitor Center where the shuttle bus picked us up. It was a quick 5 minute ride to the boat. The boat is fairly small and accommodates only 12 people. There were 7 or 8 other folks on the tour with us. We were delighted... More

£14 for an adult ticket; the cheapest out there. It was absolutely worth it. It was so much fun! The lovely man who was our guide was very kind, funny and he told us some really interesting facts about Loch Ness. Would definitely choose them again. Oh and of course ; if you choose them you'll see a funny duck... More

We went in the morning and were surprised to find we were the only party booked onto that slot but what a great, personal experience we had! Booked it at the gift shop across from Tourist information and you get picked up in the car park. Was a dull morning but didn't dampen the cruise at all! After a very... More

Booked it by the Fiddler's restaurant, picks you up by the visitor's centre across the street. Nice basic boat gives you good views of the lake and discusses events on the loch. Some ducks fly in to meet you bring some bread!

Really enjoyed our morning trip. It was warm on the land but chilly and windy on the water. Very simple tour that we enjoyed - no hokey details just someone who loves the area. Never felt rushed and found our host/pilot very engaging. He picked us up at the local Tourist Info center in Drumnadrochit and also picks up at... More

Take this tour over the bigger competitors! They are all showing you Loch Ness, but this host knows his stuff first hand and is wonderfully charming! As it was a quiet day it was just two of us on the boat so it really was a personal experience. Our host couldnt have been friendly and took pictures of us at... More

What a lot of fun, great little tour with someone who knows his stuff through first hand experience. Take this tour over the big business competition as it ticked all the boxes.

On day 7 of our 2 week Scotland Road trip we were off in search of the Loch Ness Monster! We met up with Castle Cruises Lock Ness and the same man who drove our tour bus to the boat, was our captain, and our skipper and our tour guide! He was very informative and has actually been on the... More
