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.

We went on a temptation tour with the bus tour, the lake cruise and the castle. In 3h time it gave us a good look an feel of Lochness area. ALan, the driver and guide is a good story teller with a sense of humour.

We took the shorter tour around the Loch and around the Castle, then went back to the Castle on our own. We enjoyed learning about the history of the Loch and the sheer size of the body of water. Whether you do both the Castle...More

We booked the passion tour. Our tour guide/bus driver was very nice. The castle was okay (well, there were a lot of visitors and it was quite full which might have dampened our enjoyment quite a bit). The boat tour was okay too, but unfortunately,...More

Yes, its becoming a bit of a myth.....quite frankly there is no such 'Loch Ness Monster' yes, it may be good for tourists, but quite simply unless you are 'naive'.... its a gimmick to attract people onto the Loch; I think most people have now...More
