Description

Uncover the mysterious legends and fascinating history of the Scottish Highlands on this 2-part tour of Loch Ness and Urquhart Castle. Sail the dark waters that are said to be home to Nessie, the elusive Loch Ness Monster, and then explore the ruins and turbulent past of once-mighty Urquhart Castle.

Arrive at Clansman Harbour and board a boat that takes you on a cruise over the loch. Grab a seat on the deck, or in the heated area if the weather is chilly, and gaze out upon moody views of glassy water and fog-covered hillsides. As your personal audio guide fuels your imagination with captivating tales of the legend, be on the lookout for the monster herself. According to folklore, the enormous creature has a long neck and a hump that extends for nearly 50 feet (15-m).

After exploring the depths of the water, deboard the boat at Urquhart Castle, one of the largest by area in Scotland. Roam the ruins of the premises, dating back as far as the 13th century, to discover its crumbling tower and decayed gatehouse. Along the way, learn about the centuries of conflict that took place on these grounds, including the numerous raids that eventually led to its destruction. Climb to the top of the tower to scope the loch for Nessie before boarding the boat back to the harbour.

Good value at about half the cost of the ship's same excursion. Plenty of time to enjoy both the cruise and the castle. Highly recommend it if you've not done it before, or even if it's been a few years!

Was a great experience to be on Loch Ness, not only looking out for the mysterious Nessie but cruising on the largest fresh water lake in the UK. We got off to explore Urquhart Castle, it's ruins and history were amazing. If in Scotland it is a trip I would highly recommend.
