The tour begins in Inverness, the capital of the Highlands as we travel south to Dochgarroch and the start of the Caledonian Canal and the head of Loch Ness.
Here, you will be able to join a cruise along the canal and Loch Ness which will take you to Urquhart Castle which is perched on the banks of the loch.
You’ll have time to explore the castle before getting back onto your waiting mini-bus.
We’ll continue on to Invermoriston to see the iconic bridge and waterfalls. At certain times of the year, you may be able to see the salmon leaping here.
Our lunch stop is Fort Augustus, a pretty village at the south end of Loch Ness. This village offers stunning views up the loch.
Visitors can also enjoy a visit to the Caledonian Canal Centre and learn about the history of the canal. Or just sit back and watch the boats navigating the locks.
We will then visit the Falls of Foyers, a short but spectacular walk to an impressive waterfall.
Our final stop of the day will be at Dores Beach, a stunning spot which offers undisturbed views down the loch, for one last chance to spot Nessie!
We’ll then make the short journey back to Inverness.
