Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: Water doesn't get much more mysterious than this 23 mile stretch running through the Great Glen in the Highlands of Scotland.There's no better way to experience Loch Ness than by boat. Jacobite's award winning tours and cruises get you onto the water and into the heart of this iconic landscape. This is a whole lot more than simply sight-seeing. We've been running trips on and around Loch Ness for over 30 years and most of us live here.

We went on this trip last year, we sat at the front of the boat outside, we felt we owned it especialy with a refreshing bottle in our hand from the bar!

I went along with my family in the hope of tracking down the elusive 'Nessie'! The trip was well organised, and although the boat was very full (it was peak season, in fairness), there seemed plenty of room for everyone to either sit down in the cabin or upstairs, out in the bracing wind..
Nessie remained elusive, and although we elected to not visit the castle on this occasion, we still managed to get some lovely photos as we docked for others to either jump off or re-join the cruise during the 5 minute stop.
The whole trip took just under an hour, and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. My only complaints? The audio dialogue was very quiet and crackly and I couldn't really understand what was being said... Oh, and the coffee machine on the boat apparently did lovely coffee - only we didn't get any as it took too long to make it for the amount of people wanting a cup..

Dear Reviewer, thank you so much for your wonderful feedback. We're sorry to hear you didn't manage to get a cup of our lovely coffee, it has been a challenge in peak season to serve so many people in such a short space of time.

Jacobite Queen was chartered for 75 people for an evening cruise from Tomnahurich to Urquhart Castle . Passengers were friends and family, all guests at my son's wedding. These guys were professional throughout, warm , friendly and nothing was too much trouble.We would unreservedly recommend them to anyone, whether individuals, couples or larger groups.

My husband and I went on the six hour trip which included a coach tour, a visit to the Loch Ness visitor centre, two hours at Urquart Castle and a lovely long boat ride down the loch and the Caledonian canal. We thoroughly enjoyed it all and the weather was very nice which made it even better as we were able to fully appreciate everything we saw and of course it was practically a full day out. Definitely money well spent!

A very enjoyable hour and a half along the loch to Urquhart Castle, on the banks of Loch Ness. Trip option included an hour to look around the castle before taking a 30 minute coach trip back to Inverness.
