Loch Ness

Loch Ness – the world’s most famous Loch – is only a short drive from Inverness. Why not view the mysterious loch on board one of the cruises or boat trips, or get active and explore the area on foot on the many marked walks, on horseback on the varied and magnificent rides available or on bike via one of the growing network of bike trails.

Find out more about Loch Ness and the surrounding area by visiting the Loch Ness Exhibition Centre; or visit Urquhart Castle on the banks of Loch Ness, once one of Scotland’s largest castles, now a ruin rich with history.
