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.

Clean bus, audible and friendly driver. But driver's commentary was NOT informative when there was any. Mainly a few wisecracks. We were left alone at the boat and at the castle - just as described but not half as interesting as the subject could be....More

We had a party of 3 and wanted to take the boat to Urquhart Castle. Easy to book online or at site. Prompt and allowed plenty of time to explore castle. A nice boat ride on a beautiful day!

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
