Overview
More
Water doesn't get much more mysterious than this 23 mile stretch running through the Great Glen in the Highlands of Scotland.There's no better way to experience Loch Ness than by boat. Jacobite's award winning tours and cruises get you onto the water and into the heart of this iconic landscape. This is a whole lot more than simply sight-seeing. We've been running trips on and around Loch Ness for over 30 years and most of us live here.

The staff is really friendly and helpful. They provide a lot of information but not an overwhelming way. You will enjoy every bit. It is all funny and not forced at all. I would love to go backMore

Sorry, don't know the answer for that. There are concessions for seniors and students. I'd just phone them

Maybe the one hour Loch cruise would suit the children. It can be boring and long for the children
