Full description
Depart Inverness and journey to the deep freshwater lake of Loch Ness in the Scottish Highlands, where, on arrival, you will head to the Clansman Hotel for an optional boat trip across the water. Cruise around the loch for stunning views of the surrounding scenery, and get the chance to see Urquhart Castle from a different perspective.

Look for the legendary Loch Ness Monster to work up an appetite, and then enjoy a delicious lunch at a nearby restaurant. Venture on with a gentle drive to Invermoriston, where you can go on a scenic stroll that showcases flowing rivers, an ancient summerhouse and the ruins of a picturesque stone bridge.

Continue to the wee village of Fort Augustus, nestled between Loch Ness and the 60-mile Caledonian Canal. Journet back towards Inverness, stopping for short walks and coffee breaks at the scenic villages of Foyers and Dores before your estimated arrival in Inverness at 5:00 PM.

The Rabbies tour didn't disappoint, as we've done others. We were able to see everything we wanted--a great boat ride, enough time to explore Urquhart Castle, enough time for a nice lunch in Drumnadrochit. Lots of interesting information from the guide and the stops along the drive were worthwhile. (The climb down to the falls at Foyers is not for the faint-hearted, however.)

The experience was very enjoyable and our guides were lovely Helen and another guide who was training(Sorry we forgot his name) They were both so nice to talk to and the other passengers on the bus were friendly also. Seeing all the sights and scenery was beautiful even on a partiality rainy day. It didn’t diminish from the beauty. I would highly recommend this tour.

I really enjoyed the flexibility of the outing- I paid 18£ for the 30 min boat ride and hour long castle tour and it was perfect for me! The variety of scenery was great too- we went from Loch Ness to little towns, to winding country roads, snowy hills and then back to shore side!
