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 were a group of seven Canadian travellers, ranging from 16 yrs to 80 yrs, who thoroughly enjoyed our three hour Jacobite Cruise on Loch Ness. The tour director was extremely knowledgeable and personable. The boat was clean and the Ness Brew was delicious!! Thank you.

We took a 3hurs group and the driver was so nice. It was suitable for someone who only has short time to visit Loch Ness. To be honest, the weather is the key for Jacobite experience.

The Temptation cruise includes a short ride on Loch Ness to Urquhart Castle and a short time to explore the castle grounds. For us, it was the perfect amount of time to spend on the Loch and still have time to do other things in the afternoon (although we would have like just a little more time to explore the castle). Our guide, Julian, was terrific and a lot of fun. The boat captain was knowledgeable and both were very helpful. Friendly and efficient, they went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed their tour and our visit to Scotland.

My tour with Jacobite on a Loch Ness boat trip and Castle Urquhart was well organised. It began with comfortable pick up transport with friendly and informative staff. The boat trip was amazing with great views and lots of information. The castle is fantastic and you could easily spend a couple of hours here. Its has a good visitor centre and tea room. Overall this was an efficiently run tour and fairly priced.

We went on the two and a half hour tour and it was brilliant!!
Everyone was very helpfull.
I must mention our bus driver (George??) I had left my hand bag onboard the boat and only dicovered that it was missing when we got the exibition centre.....with kindness and an everending smile he managed to get it back to me....now thats what I call service!!! We were a bit late on our return journey and I made my apoligies to the rest of the travellers
