We loved our visit here, before you go into the exhibition proper you have to watch a short film before venturing through the curtains to the very immersive displays. All the information you could possibly want to know about the Loch and its most famous...More

The visitors centre was really interesting and I found out loads of interesting facts but a little tricky to keep a three year old entertained. The best part however was the boat trip across the Loch. Initially I balked at the price £10 for a...More

Called in here while passing through. Very interesting tour explaining all about the Loch and the myths of Nessie!! Fascinating to learn all about the legends of the monster and the hunt for verification. Sad to learn that she's probably dead..... But is she????? Hmm.

Firstly the concept of the visitor center is a great idea and you can clearly see the passion behind the idea however there were a few issues that lead to this not being at its best. I really like the concept and the whole idea...More

Reasonable information about attraction - visual displays a bit amateurish but served purpose - first thing in morning not that busy so easy access and heard all sound. Shop typical tourist style for area.

They dealt with some technical difficulties so we got a discount which I think is very polite. It’s cold inside and this is most definitely not made for kids. It’s informative but nothing you cannot find on the internet.
