Loch Ness Tour

 

This tour takes us from the fertile lands of Aberdeenshire to the rugged grandeur of the Highlands.

 

Our coffee stop en route to Loch Ness is Johnston’s of Elgin where cashmere and fine woollen cloth have been made since 1797.

 

Loch Ness lies in the Great Glen which runs from the north-east to the south-west, dividing Scotland. It is the largest loch in Scotland by volume and is the home of the elusive Loch Ness Monster – more affectionately known as Nessie.

 

Our cruise on Loch Ness will take us to visit one of Scotland’s most famous castles, Urquhart Castle. This will be our lunch stop today.

 

Leaving Loch Ness, we will have on a panoramic tour through Inverness, the capital of the Highlands, on the banks of the River Ness, before our return journey takes us through some wild countryside as we drive over the Lecht, the second highest road pass in Scotland at 2,100ft/640m.
