Loch Ness Loop

Tour the world famous Loch Ness with a complete drive around one of the most famous and mysterious lochs in the world. This is a private tour for your group only. No more overcrowded buses.

Our Nessie hunt starts from Inverness heading down the Northern side of Loch Ness. We pass through the village of Drumnadrochit and onto Urquhart castle, from there we head onto Fort Augustus at the southern tip of Loch Ness. Turning back towards Inverness on the much quieter southern road, we pass through the villages of Foyers and Dores, stopping at Dores beach for some spectacular views down Loch Ness. From Dores we then have a short drive back to Inverness.
