Loch Ness Coach Tours

No tour to Scotland would be complete without an opportunity to peer into the dark, mysterious and deep waters of Loch Ness, home to its eponymous monster, 'Nessie'. Loch Ness is an iconic symbol of Scotland and most visitors want to be able to return home with stories of how they almost saw the monster...

Loch Ness is a large fresh water loch running for about 23 miles south west of Inverness in the Scottish Highlands, and is the deepest loch in Scotland. On it's western shore stand the romantic ruins of Urquhart Castle; many of the tours offer a chance to visit the castle and/or a cruise on Loch Ness.

We have lots of coach and bus tours to Loch Ness all listed below. We can offer day tours from Edinburgh, Glasgow or Inverness, and extended, more leisurely tours where you'll stay in Inverness, and have more time not only to visit Loch Ness but much more of the Scottish Highlands.

If you're looking for a tour to Loch Ness in the winter months, it's best to choose a tour with Guaranteed Departure, as some tours won't go if there are insufficient numbers booked (normally 5 or 6 people is the minimum), but the Loch Ness tours with Guaranteed Departure will always run.
