“we all enjoyed this cruise”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

This was a great cruise, the boat wasn't too big and our guide was a really friendly, interesting local who knew everything there is to know about Loch Ness, and the surrounding area. The trip takes about 1 hour and there is more than enough time to take photos, enjoy the beautiful scenery and learn some amazing facts and history, and our guide happily answered any questions we had. We would definitely recommend this trip, great value for money and a must for all Nessie hunters.

What a great way to experience Loch Ness. We had Gordon as our guide, a lovely man who made the trip very interesting with his extensive knowledge of the loch and surrounding area. There's scientific information and fun snippets as well as breathtaking scenery. The trip lasted just under an hour, an ideal length of time, on a lovely little boat that wasn't crammed full so enabling you to move around. Tickets from the gift shop in the village and then picked up outside the Tourist Information centre for the short minibus trip made it all very easy to do.

“Well worth going on this tour”
Reviewed April 29, 2013 via mobile

The best thing with this tour is that it is carried out by a "local",who loves the area and presents his local knowledge in an interesting way. This tour is a great way to hunt for Nessie and see the beautiful Scottish scenery!
The ducks who come to the boat are an additional treat! You may also get the opportunity to feed them.
My husband and I both thoroughly enjoyed this trip and would definitely recommend it to all.

Reviewed March 19, 2013

I have had a huge privilege to see Loch Ness and Urquahart Castle from the board of Castle Cruises. Gordon and his amazing knowledge of local folklore, history and great stories to tell about the Loch and Nessy took my appreciation of the area on a whole new level.
Great cruise where you will be treated as guest rather than a tourist. Highly recommended!

“Nessie hunting - again!”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

We have been on this cruise perhaps 7 or 8 times. We bring all our foreign friends. The good thing is that they take dogs, which many of the other cruise companies do not.

By this time, of course, we know the commentary off by heart but it is still interesting every time we hear it.

The trip lasts just under an hour which is ideal.

No doubt we'll be back with our next lot of visitors.
