It's good to have a different perspective of the Loch Ness, although it doesn't offer much to see. The view nearer the Castle is much prettier. For the price and duration it is a good trip. and the right duration.

I really enjoyed this cruise, although it was a windy day the boat ride was super smooth. The commentary on board was great, just enough information and did not bombard you with boring stuff. I enjoyed just doing the cruise itself and looking at the nearby castle and visitor center at my own pace before the cruise. It was a great opportunity to get a photo of the castle from the water. Unfortunately I did not spot 'Nessie', maybe next time

The trip on Loch Ness was interesting. However, the sound left a bit to be desired and the seating was not ideal. The temperature was chilly. There is some history provided and there are things to read on the tables. While it was not the best presentation, the price is right

Wer nicht lange Zeit hat, die Highlands und Loch Ness zu erkunden, für den ist die Bootsfahrt genau das Richtige. Man bekommt in kurzer Zeit einen tollen Ausblick auf Loch Ness, die Berge und Urqhuart Castle. Währenddessen bekommt man interessante Fakten zum Loch Ness zu hören.
