Went on the Loch Ness cruise. Our skipper for the trip was very knowledgeable and kept us well informed. I was quite surprised at the size and depth of the water. Great scenery. Nice was to spent a lazy hour in the afternoon

I took this tour with my two children (9&6). After 10 days holiday in Scotland, and many visits all round Fort William, Skye and Ayr etc, we all agree that this was our favourite part. We were the only ones on this tour. At first I was sceptical. It was a cold, rainy day and the boat is half uncovered... More

What can I say. An absolutely fantastic cruise with the best captain ever. He's a mine of information and any questions (no matter how stupid) we're answered very knowledgeably. He obviously loves his job and it shows. We went out on quit a choppy day and it was FUN. Our ages ranged from 11 to 55 and I would have... More

We stopped off at Drumnadrochit on our way to Skye so we could see a bit of Loch Ness. We were able to easily book our trip at the gift shop near the village green after seeing it advertised at the visitor centre across the road. Our skipper was punctual and very knowledgeable about the loch and the various myths.... More

We've been on this cruise twice now, and it can't be beat. We chose it the first time because they allowed our dog along. She's a big girl, but it was early in the season (March 2014) without any other tourists on the cruise with us. This alone was fabulous, just the 4 in my family plus our dog. Dick... More

The biggest difference between the many Loch Ness cruises is whether you want to go on a boat that holds 12 people or a boat that holds 150 passengers. We had already taken the larger boat years ago and opted for the smaller more personal cruise this time. This is the way to go to explore the loch! The captain... More
