Loch Ness Tours

star-4
10 Reviews
As huge as Loch Ness is, its vast size is not the reason for its global fame, nor is it the magnificent surrounding scenery. The real reason visitors flock to this Scottish body of water is to spot the elusive Loch Ness Monster. Rumors about Nessie have flown since an Irish monk first caught sight of something unusual swimming around the lake’s inky waters back in the seventh century. Today. travelers still cruise around the loch in hopes of catching sight of the mysterious aquatic monster.

Loch Ness & Dores

Over 23 miles long, the Loch has more fresh water than all the lakes of England and Wales combined. The true star though is the Loch Ness Monster, Nessie herself, who you may be lucky to catch a glimpse of if she’s feeling sociable! No tour of Loch Ness is complete without trying to catch at least a few pictures of this Scottish wonder.
