“Very picturesque”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

Very beautiful place with friendly people and interesting history. We enjoyed watching the canal and locks in action and taking the Loch Ness cruise. We were extremely lucky that the weather was stunning the weekend we were there.

“Our favourite place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

We stayed in a house on the edge of Loch Ness, next to the canal. It was very beautiful and the village was small and intimate. We took a boat trip on the loch and watched the various boats on thc canal as they went through the locks. There were lovely walks around too.

“Lovely Place,”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

This is a great place to visit with some lovely pubs to sit, eat and drink. The step lochs are a bit special and its worth watching the Caley Cruisers make there way up and down the lochs. You can also get on a speed boat here and take a trip around Loch Ness.
