The Complete Loch Ness Experience Small-Group Day Tour from Inverness

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    Join a guide and small group at a central location in Inverness, then board a top of the range, 16-seat Mercedes mini-coach for the short trip to the Clansman Hotel, by Loch Ness. Upon arrival at the storied loch, opt to see the area on a sightseeing cruise (boat trip own expense). As you explore Loch Ness, enjoy great views of the dramatic Urquhart Castle, historic ruins at the edge of the water.
    And of course, keep your eyes and cameras on the water—there have been reports of a monster in Loch Ness for hundreds of years, and the guide shares some of the most fascinating tales and sightings. 
    Return to shore and head to a nearby restaurant for lunch (own expense). After your meal, continue to the Highland village of Invermoriston, where you can stretch your legs on a walk past pretty rivers, a ruined stone bridge, and a historic summer home.
    Keep driving to the Caledonian Canal, then turn back towards Inverness, with pauses to walk and get coffee in the villages of Foyers and Dores. This full-day Highland tour concludes with drop-off in Inverness.

    This day trip was just as described on Rabbie's web site. You do need to pay extra for either the boat trip or the visit to Urquhart Castle. Comfortable mini bus and adequate time at each stop. Although a bit too long at Fort Augustus...More

    Prompt pickup. Informative dialogue from driver. Not exactly a guided tour, more of a lift to interesting places with assistance. The Loch Ness boat trip was wonderful, weather was kind. Extra cost but worth it. Fort Augustus is a pretty little town, bit touristy, but...More

    Upfront tip: the price you pay Rabbie’s is for your guide to get you from place to place. Tours on the lake are from a different company and you will need to select and pay for them when you board the bus. A one hour...More

    Those who choose the castle and cruise will get a partial cruise and are dropped off at the castle . Those who don’t want to see the castle get the complete cruise around Loch Ness. The bus picks those doing just the cruise... More
