This tour is must if you are ever in the Highland Capital of Scotland Inverness. We took four Canadian guests on the trip, and they just loved it to bits. The tour starts in Inverness, where you board the boat. Buses run from the centre of town to the boarding point at Tomnahurich bridge. The trip down the Canal, is just so enchanting/relaxing, and the crew are very freindly and helpful. However, I would advise that you take your own refreshments/picnic, as the choice on board is not that good. Also, on the top deck you also have to watch out for the exhaust fumes of the boat - stay well forward - or find a good spot on the lower deck. Emerging from the canal onto the Lock itself reveals some awesome/spectacular backdrops, but the scenery for the entire trip is amazing. Landing on the Loch edge at the castle gives folk a real sense of history - albeit don't expect to get any Nessie souvenirs at the Castle shop - surprisingly, they don't have any??? .... we had to go back to Inverness to get them. The bus trip on the way back is also very nice, and the lass who was driving the bus was very cheerful and informative.
Don't pass it up, and take a raincoat with you just in case.
