Can't really review as when we showed up for the 4pm sailing there was not enough people to go out on the boat. Was told to call the next time by the staff - not the best customer service experience.

We took the cruise of Loch Ness from Fort Augustus. The trip is about an hour, and like some others have mentioned, it was disappointing that this boat doesn't take you as far as Urquhart Castle. It cost £13.50 each, and there really wasn't a great deal to see, but the commentary was good, the crew friendly. There are fast... More

A lovely way to see a part of Loch Ness. We went in the larger boat as opposed to the speedier RIB boat as my girlfriend didn't think she could stomach the speed of the RIB. Great value as well. The view from the top deck was Amazing, and the sheer scale of the Loch is hard to comprehend. The... More

Do you want a great and thrilling way to see Loch Ness? This is the place. Take the RIB boat tour. It was rainy and cold on the day that we went to Fort Augustus. I was worried about be soaked and cold. The tour provided wonderful full body weather suits that kept us warm and dry (we wanted to... More

Although it is Scotland's most famous loch, it is not one of its prettiest. The boat ride was about 60 minutes long and took you about 1/3 the way down the loch. We assumed that we would get to see Urquhart Castle, but we never got near it. Not the tour company's fault, but disappointing. The recorded lecture was better... More

I had a wonderful time "cruising" the loch on a RIB for about 90 minutes. It's quite a trip, with light rain and some decent winds, traveling along at 35 mph! The driver was a lot of fun, and clearly loved his job (especially trying to get air on the waves). We were all dressed up in a nice warm... More

A really great 90 minutes spent in the RIB, an amazing way to see Loch Ness. Would highly recommend this trip. Marcus and Tony really made the trip on the boat a great experience. A must have if you are visiting Fort Augustus.

Myself and my friend booked this for first thing on a Sunday, and booked the RIB trip rather than the slower boat. Unfortunately there were not enough people to run the boat on the Sunday, and the team pulled out all of the stops to keep us happy and book us in a time that suited us. The two guides,... More

as with previous reviews about the RIB this is a worthwhile trip. We were lucky or maybe unlucky to go on a beautiful sunny day ( some travellers prefer rough waters ). Great crew of two lads who made the trip for us. There is a temptation to take the cheaper cruiser trip but you see very little being it... More
