Disembark at Urquhart Castle and enjoy free time to visit the ruins before cruising back to the harbor.

Make your own way to Clansman Harbour to begin your tour. Located less than 10 miles southwest of Inverness, the harbor is just a short drive from the city center and is set on the north shore of what is perhaps the world?s most mysterious stretch of water.

Nestled in between rambling hills and the still waters of Loch Ness, Clansman Harbour?s quaint dock area ideally complements the area?s unspoiled natural beauty. On arrival, spend a few moments capturing the incredible scenery with your camera, before heading for your cruise boat.

Once onboard your comfortable boat, take a seat inside or on the open-air deck and relax as you slip away from the dock. Absorb the breathtaking natural vistas of the loch and the surrounding hills as you glide and stay on the lookout for a glimpse of the area?s most famous resident, Nessie, the fabled Loch Ness Monster!

After a leisurely 30 minutes? cruise on Loch Ness, disembark your boat at the romantic ruins of Urquhart Castle. Here, enjoy an hour of free time to spend at your leisure. Perhaps explore the ruins of the castle that, in its 500 years as a medieval stronghold, has a particularly dark history. Learn about King Edward I?s invasion in the 13th century, its importance during the Scots? struggle for independence in the 14th century and the raids from MacDonald Lord of the Isles during the 15th and 16th centuries.

After exploring the castle ruins, return to your boat to enjoy a scenic cruise back to Clansman Harbour where your tour concludes.
