Towns & Villages

    Located at the head of Urquhart Bay on the northern shore of Loch Ness, the lovely village of Drumnadrochit is popular with Loch Ness monster hunters!

    Drumnadrochit is a great location for exploring the Highlands. The village is surrounded by the glens, Glen Urquhart and Glen Moriston, as well as the Great Glen that reaches across from Inverness in the east to Fort William in the west. The area is rich in things to see and do with activities ranging from exploring Urquhart Castle, a classic romantic ruin jutting out into the loch, horse riding, cycling, cruising the length of Loch Ness and fishing trips.

    The largest and best known loch in the Great Glen, Loch Ness is one of the most popular UK holiday destinations and attracts many visitors every year hoping to catch a glimpse of Nessie, the world-famous Loch Ness monster!

    Find out more in the Loch Ness Centre & Exhibition about Loch Ness and the monster that (perhaps) lurks somewhere in its depths!  The replica of Nessie may be the closest you get to the real thing, but visitors can also explore the spooky history of the facts and myths of monster hunting at the centre.

    At Nessieland, watch the documentary about the sightings of the monster throughout the ages, and explore the Nessie caves to unravel the legends and the mysteries. The attraction is also home to an adventure playground and offers cruises on Loch Ness.
