The day we went on our trip on Loch Ness it was sunny and bright which added to the lovely boat trip. The guide was very informative about the surrounding trees and wildlife, sadly no Nessie appeared,

The boat had a good amount of comfortable inside seating in case of bad weather and also had outside seating on the upper deck. One could go out on the front and back decks for photo taking as well. There was a bar aboard that served hot and cold drinks and some snacks. The staff were friendly and helpful to... More

I had booked online with details confirmed by phone for the tour which started at Nessieland and involved us being taken down to the harbour in a mini-bus. There were only four of us on the tour and we were all sat upstairs but that didn't stop George narrating the entire trip. He shared lots of titbits of information and... More

My wife and myself had, along with a family from India and a couple from Australia, a marvellous trip on the 'Nessie Hunter' cruiser. Our host George was fantastic! Over 50 years of sailing and experience on the Loch was crammed into the narration that he enthused over for almost the entire hour of our cruise. It was well worth... More

You can book this cruise round the back of Nessieland! When we booked this it seemed more expensive than others I had seen so was a little curious as to why. You get picked up by Mini Bus that drives you to the boat. Once aboard you are treated to a very personal live commentary from George Edwards 'EDWARDS DEEP'... More

This was a nice relaxing hour or so on the water. Lake Ness (Loch Ness) was calm and the weather was good. The captain knows the history of the lake so well, it was an education too. Whether or not there is a Loch Ness monster (he says she is not called Nessie by the locals, just by us foreigners...)... More

A lovely trip around the Loch skippered by a local knowledgable guide who provided detailed facts of a historical, geographical, geological and crypto zoological nature. Our 2 kids even steered the boat for a bit!
