“Lovely tour to Loch Ness, Castle Urquhart (Passion)”

Loch Ness by Jacobite
Certificate of Excellence

Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
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.

My daughter (5) and I went in this combined bus and boat trip visiting Corrimony Cairns, Loch Ness Exhibition Centre, Castle Urquhart and a boat trip back to Inverness. The guide that day Ian was very friendly and told many interesting things about the buildings and landscapes we drove by. The trip and the amount of time allocated to each place was appropriate. It would have been nice to have a guided tour included at Urquhart Castle but I could of course just have paid extra for that at the visitors centre. This was a lovely way to spend 7 hours and I can recommend it for anyone else wanting to see these special places near Inverness.

Just went with my mom to this loch ness tour. Everything was great: the bus, the boat, the ruins. Alan, the bus driver, is one of the funniest tour guides I have ever met. He knew every single detail of Inverness and its story. If you have the chance to choose bus driver, choose him.

As I come from a country full of lakes, the loch itself wasn't quite spectacular, but the whole tour was incredible.

I can't remember which exact cruise we chose, but my sister and I cruised the Loch, walked around the castle, and then took a bus back to our starting point.

The cruise was great. Our guide, Kenny, was fantastic with his information throughout. My favorite part was his singing during the cruise! Amazing voice!

The castle tour was good...a little chilly in March, but beautiful views.

We thoroughly enjoyed our outing and felt it was a good value.

We had a bus tour of Inverness, a 1 hour cruise on Loch Ness, entrance to Urquhart Castle and to the visitor centre all for 32£ which we felt was very reasonable.
The highlight for us was te tour guide on the cruise who gave info and also sang Scottish folk tunes. We would do this again!
