Went on a one hour boat trip around the Loch wonderful scenery and views of Urquhart Castle bit choppy at times didn't see Nessy out there Plenty of information from the staff about the history and secrets of the Loch well worth the trip

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!

Excellent cruise, George's knowledge was first class and he made my son's day when he let him drive the boat. Would recommend this for the family, a really lovely morning on Loch Ness.

Its a beautiful (black) lake with high green mountains surrounding it, but the lake boat cruise tour is nothing extraordinary even though the scenery etc is great. Its good, but i won't do it another time (esp when... More

Thank you for your positive feedback but just one fact to put right! The cruise last for 50 minutes on the water with a short bus ride to and from Nessieland depending on the traffic which has been disrupted this summer(2014) with some essential road works. More

My husband, our 8 and 12 year old, and I visited Scotland with my mother and father in law. My youngest has been OBSESSED with Nessie for the past two years and could probably be a cruise guide if you are looking for a new employee :) The cruise was wonderful.... our guide had many a story to tell us...

The boat trip was excellent, picked a day when weather couldn't have been better. Captain George was very informative about the loch and Lenora was very helpful with advise on other attractions, local walks etc. Would absolutely recommend this trip if you're in the area.
