The departure point is 9 miles from Inverness city centre, so requires you to travel by car. You can find us on Google Maps - Loch Ness by Jacobite Clansman Harbour, or by using What3Words - https://what3words.com/tolls.awakening.branch
Parking facilities are available at Clansman Harbour. This is free of charge, however, can be limited during peak season. We recommend you arrive 45 minutes before your departure time. There are no bike racks available at The Clansman Hotel. Should you be re-directed to the overflow carpark, this is approximately a 15-minute walk, on uneven terrain to the harbour.
Cruise the Loch and visit the castle on this two-hour adventure. Your voyage will include a one-hour cruise across the mysterious waters of Loch Ness. You’ll also hop ashore for a one-hour visit to explore historic Urquhart Castle and its turbulent past.
Our onboard audio is bursting with fascinating facts and legends to tune into as you sail. And don’t forget to look out for Nessie, with a little help from our onboard sonar.
Please note that all of our boats welcome dogs on board, and whilst this tour does not, it may not be suitable for those who suffer from dog allergies.
Disembarking at Urquhart Castle is not possible for wheelchair users or those with mobility impairments. If you or a member of your party have any mobility impairments, please view our Contemplation Cruise option.
Dogs are not welcome in Urquhart Castle and are therefore unable to join us on this tour.
