Overview
More
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.

They were very accommodating in taking me on the one hour cruise at the last minute. The best part was the view of Urquhart Castle from off shore. Parking can be a bit of a hassle so be sure to give yourself plenty of time.More

Sorry, don't know the answer for that. There are concessions for seniors and students. I'd just phone them

Maybe the one hour Loch cruise would suit the children. It can be boring and long for the children
