Overview

The Loch Ness Explorer day tour is a fantastic tour to Loch Ness visiting a diverse range of classic Highland scenery including many must see sights and the chance to go monster hunting on Loch Ness! Other highlights include dramatic Glencoe, mighty Ben Nevis, the Great Glen and Highland Perthshire.

Your journey takes you through Fort William passing Ben Nevis, Britain’s highest mountain, before entering the Great Glen.

Upon arrival in Fort Augustus, on the banks of Loch Ness, there is an optional cruise on the mysterious and beautiful Loch Ness. Providing you with an unforgettable experience and offering you the chance to catch a glimpse of Nessie.
