This extended trip on famous Loch Ness will take you on a journey of discovery through the Caledonian canal and into Loch Ness on the hunt for the famous Loch Ness Monster. Scotland is brimming with myths and legends – and Loch Ness is the biggest of them all.

Departing from Dochgarroch Lock on Thomas Telford’s famous Caledonian Canal, the boat travels south along the canal before the view opens up onto the loch. Take in the beautiful scenery and wide-open views of Scotland’s deepest loch.

As the voyage continues you’ll experience breathtaking sight of the historic Urquhart Castle and the boat stops briefly at the castle-side.

Our onboard audio is bursting with lots of facts and legends to tune into as you sail. You’ll hear about the colourful history of the Loch, including the crash site of a World War II Wellington Bomber. And not forgetting some stories about the world’s shyest monster.
