Our tips for Loch Ness

  • Take a road trip. A drive around the loch is a rite of passage when visiting Loch Ness. Head anticlockwise for the best views of the loch and beyond.
  • Spot Nessie or at least her cardboard cut-out. The Loch Ness Centre and Exhibition Experience tells the story of the Loch Ness Monster, a folklore that has spanned decades and divided many. Hear the tales of the Loch Ness Monster sightings and make up your own mind about her existence.
  • Stay and play at Aldourie Castle. With its turrets just a flick of Nessie’s tail away from the famous lake, this elegant castle-cum-hotel is well worth a visit. If you have the time, be sure to hunker down in one of the castle’s luxurious rooms overlooking the glen for the ultimate Loch Ness experience.

Best time to visit
These bitterly cold waters are best experienced (yep, you guessed it!) outside of the bitterly cold winter. Although every season in the Highlands has its charms, Loch Ness tours between the months of May and September are ideal.
Getting there
The closest train station to Loch Ness is about 13 miles north in the town of Inverness, with plenty of buses heading to and from the station regularly. However we advise you to book tours that include roundtrip transfers from the city as it ensures a more convenient and hassle-free experience.
