Itinerary
Where this Tour takes you

This short-day tour lets you discover all the marvellous views and secrets of Loch Ness.

You leave Inverness and follow the Caledonian Canal to the source at Loch Ness.

After arriving at Loch Ness, you have the choice to either go on a one-hour cruise around the loch or a 30-minute cruise to Urquhart Castle, where you can disembark and explore the ancient ramparts.

You travel a short distance to Drumnadrochit, a popular destination for keen monster hunters! You have time here to look around for gifts and sit down for a spot of lunch.

Next, you venture to Invermoriston, where you can take a short walk to an old summerhouse with views of the river Moriston.

Your journey continues South West along the lochside to the furthermost point of the tour at Fort Augustus. Here you can take a picture of the boats coming in through the Caledonian Canal.

The slower roads take you through the less-travelled side of Loch Ness. Driving on single-track roads and using passing places is a typical Highland experience. You may stop for a photo and view looking east towards Loch Ness and Inverness. After a twisty drive through the forested landscape, you arrive at the forest community of Foyers.

At this stop, you can walk downhill through native pine trees to see the hidden-away Falls of Foyers. This stunning waterfall was a favourite spot for Robert Burns, and if you’re lucky, you may spot a dashing red squirrel.

From here, you continue back along the Lochside and to Dores at the eastern end of the Loch.

This final viewpoint is the most striking vista of Loch Ness and the Great Glen rift valley.

From here, you return to Inverness and arrive in the early evening.
