Really great tour of the loch, lovely relaxing tour. The tour starts at the hotel and goes to Urquhart Castle and back to the hotel so not a full tour of the Koch by a long way. The boat provided indoor and outdoor seating, bar provided tea/coffee/alcohol and snacks. I imagine it can get quite busy, I went at 11am with about 40 on board which was nice and chilled but the next tour had about 100 booked. Great opportunity to take photos from the boat, especially as it docks at Urquhart Castle. I went on a cloudy day but still enjoyed it, although I don’t think it would be as good in the pouring rain! On board commentary interesting but a bit cliched. Overall still very happy, only wish it lasted longer!

Amazing 2 hour trip on Loch Ness. Very informative guide and facilities both at the pier and on the boat itself are fantastic. Make sure visit the cafe and the shop!
