The start of your tour begins with a visit to the beautiful waters of Loch Ness. Loch Ness is home to Nessie - the elusive Loch Ness Monster. Many people have searched for evidence of Nessie’s presence ever since her first reported sighting by Saint Columba in 565AD, but Nessie has eluded many would-be witnesses – from scientists to loch-side fanatics holding vigil onshore. Will you be one of the lucky few who catch a glimpse of Nessie swimming through the waters of one of the largest and deepest expanses of water in the UK? The Loch itself is a marvel as it contains more water than all the lakes of England and Wales combined! With its dramatic scenery, great adventure sports, and nearby Lighthouses and castles, it’s no wonder Nessie has chosen to make the Loch her home.
