What to expect

You leave Inverness and follow the Caledonian Canal to the source of the River Ness. Your guide takes you down the road less travelled to Dores, on the eastern side of the loch.

This tiny village boasts a beach with the most striking vista of Loch Ness and the Great Glen rift valley.

Our next stop, the forest community of Foyers. Here, 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.

After a twisty drive through forested landscape, you arrive at Fort Augustus, the furthermost point of the tour. Here you can have your lunch and take a picture of the boats coming in through the Caledonian Canal.

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

Whether you believe the legends or not, keep your eyes peeled for the monster or breath-taking vistas as we continue along the banks of Loch Ness. We know Loch Ness is all about Nessie, but the banks of the loch are home to another star; Urquhart Castle. Walk the grounds of the castle and listen to the echoes of battles reverberating in the ancient walls. And then enjoy getting closer to the mystery on an hour-long cruise of the loch.

Once you're back on the shore, you continue your journey along Loch Ness and return to Inverness in the early evening.
