4.7/5 (55)

Loch Ness is a large, deep, freshwater loch or lake in the Scottish Highlands, located near Inverness. Loch Ness is the most famous loch in Scotland thanks to the mythical and renowned Loch Ness Monster, also affectionately known as Nessie. Many sightings of the mythical creature have been reported and its possible existence continues to draw many visitors to the area.

The loch is surrounded by beautiful Scottish scenery with rolling hills, green fields and forests in abundance. It is also home to the ruins of Urquhart Castle, formally one of Scotland’s largest castles. The castle was blown up in 1692 but continues to be an impressive sight on the banks of Loch Ness.

With picturesque villages surrounding the loch and the city of Inverness close by, the area is bursting with things to do, from ancient castles, whisky distillery tours to outdoor activities and boat trips.

“Jim onze buschauffeur en ook onze begeleider krijgt van mij alle lof. Erg grappig en met veel humor verteld hij tijdens het rijden over de geschiedenis van de prachtige omgeving. Een lange bustocht waardoor je veel kunt zien in een dag. Dat betekent wel dat je korte stops hebt en veel in de bus zit.”

“Our local guide greeted us at the meeting point and did not stop talking anymore for the rest of the day. Great stories, anecdotes and bits of folklore while touring Loch Ness. There were frequent stops - but beware that Fort Augustus and the boat ride (to be paid on the spot) are fairly touristy.”
