Description

Get to know the secrets of Loch Ness with this adventure that puts you right on the surface of its famously murky waters. Your half-day tour takes you to the remains of the castle that stands on its shores and reveals the legends and fascinating history that surrounds the beautiful site.

A tour bus carries you from downtown Inverness and through the Great Glen to the shores of the harbour where a vessel waits to carry you out on the water. Learn about famous legends from the onboard audio guide, enjoy some light snacks and drinks while on board, and explore the depths with the onboard sonar to probe the secrets of one of Scotland's largest and deepest lochs.

When you're back on the shore, pay a visit to the ruins of Urquhart Castle, which dates back to the 13th century and served as a fortress during the Wars of Scottish Independence. You next get a look at the Loch Ness Centre & Exhibition, where 7 themed exhibits take you from the loch's prehistoric origins all the way to the modern day, before you depart for the return trip to Inverness.

The tour was excellent...!!! Puntual, the driver-guide was more than perfect. The Cruise and the visit at the Castle was beautiful. Totally recommended.

The Jacobite Cruise was great. Tour guide Alan had a great store of knowledge and delivered it with humour and the most beautiful scottish brogue and rolling of his “r”s. Enough time to see most things. The castle part was a bit hurried but the weather was wet and cold.
