Loch Ness Cruise Including Urquhart Castle and Loch Ness Centre and Exhibition
From US$45.19
Low Price Guarantee
Overview
Even though Loch Ness is just a short driving distance from Inverness, it can be hard to get there without renting a car. This guided tour includes round-trip transport from an easy-to-find meeting spot, as well as admission tickets to the Loch Ness Centre and Exhibition and Urquhart Castle for your convenience. Plus, it packs in guided and independent elements to allow you to learn with a guide by your side and to explore on your own.
What to Expect
Make your way to the Inverness bus station in advance of your group's meeting time. Then, climb into a comfortable coach and travel to Clansman Harbour. Relax on the way, listen to your guide's commentary, and take in the landscape while your driver worries about directions and traffic.
Board the cruise ship at Clansman Harbour, and explore the boat as it travels through the river down to the famous Loch Ness. Snap photos of the vistas, and listen to your guide detail the myths and legends that surround the loch and its famous inhabitant, Nessie.
Arrive at Urquhart Castle, and disembark for a short self-guided tour. The flexibility to explore on your own is a good complement to the other guided elements of the day.
Move on to the Loch Ness Centre and Exhibition, where you can learn about the origin of the Loch Ness Monster narrative and the historic inhabitants of the castle and fortress. Get a comprehensive overview of the site's long history through an exploration of the seven multimedia exhibits.
Back on the bus, return to Inverness by early afternoon with plenty of daytime hours to do as you wish.

Honestly, I thought it was fantastic from the get-go. I live locally but I took a friend from another country and they absolutely loved it. The staff were friendly and informative. I could have honestly done a longer tour. I didn't want the bus to...More

They don't call it "Sensation tour" for nothing! Everything was done perfectly and our guides on the boat were great, however Alan, on our bus was the best guide ever! Funny and witty (besides knowledgeable), he made it an absolute delight!

Depends. The shorter version is about four hours and it seemed more than long enough for the included activities!
