Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Join a guide and small group at a central location in Inverness, then board a top of the range, 16-seat Mercedes mini-coach for the short trip to Loch Ness. Upon arrival at the storied loch, opt to see the area on a sightseeing cruise (boat trip own expense). As you explore Loch Ness, enjoy great views of the dramatic Urquhart Castle, historic ruins at the edge of the water.

And of course, keep your eyes and cameras on the water—there have been reports of a monster in Loch Ness for hundreds of years, and the guide shares some of the most fascinating tales and sightings. 

Return to shore and head to a nearby restaurant for lunch (own expense). After your meal, continue to the Highland village of Invermoriston, where you can stretch your legs on a walk past pretty rivers, a ruined stone bridge, and a historic summer home.

Keep driving to the Caledonian Canal, then turn back towards Inverness. This full-day Highland tour concludes with drop-off in Inverness.
