We popped up from Edinburgh on a bus tour (The Ness Bus - geeat by the way) and this was an optional extra which we wanted to go for in order to see the Loch. I'm glad we did it because the loch isn't clearly visible from within the town, and we got to see the blackness of the water... More

Went today and witnessed a company that was happy to go the extra mile. Even though it is winter and there are only two scheduled sailings, they put on a extra boat at the last minute to cater for a large family group that wished to sit together. It was quick thinking and the type of attitude rarely seen in... More

Of course I didn't expect to see any monster. My expectations included a boat ride on the lake and see some pretty views. I saw some, but what I mostly saw were the back of other people's head with barely any room to move. I was glad when the whole thing was over.

Very enjoyable trip, well worth the ticket of GBP 17, the staff on board were really friendly, sadly l did not get to see 'Nessie', maybe another day. The trip lasted for an hour, the scenery was so beautiful, great views of the Loch and mountains, very informative staff

Took the day trip to Loch Ness from Edinburgh, beautiful trip. The Lake is so beautiful, we were lucky to have such a clear day. A big thanks to Ricky who was very informative and great 'Craic!!' From the two Irish girls!

Beautiful, clear day was awarded us for our Loch Ness cruise. Plenty of opportunities to take amazing photos. There is a cash only bar on board and toilets are available, as needed. This cruise is available for all ages and some passengers were accompanied by their dogs. The crew is very genial and helpful. The length is approximately one hour... More

We were utterly delighted to see that the boat trips were running in winter - it's not very well advertised!! We booked our slot (£14 for an hour tour down Loch Ness!!!) and arrived at 2pm for departure! The staff were all friendly, fantastic and knowledgable - great ambassadors for both the company and the area!! The tour was fantastic... More
