    A few things to know

    CAMERAS AT THE READY

    LAYER UP

    It’s warm on board, but the deck can get a wee bit windy.

    SNACK RESPONSIBLY

    Don't feed the monster – Nessie's on a zero litter, gluten-free diet right now!

    ROCK SOME BOOTS

    They’ll help you keep a good grip in castles and on deck.

    PACK A MAC

    The Scottish weather can be unpredictable. Raincoats are a no-brainer.

    KEEP A TIGHT LEASH

    Nessie loves dogs. For dinner. So keep them back from doggy paddling.
