The second deepest lake in Scotland, Loch Ness is best known for alleged sightings of the mysterious Loch Ness Monster, affectionately called Nessie. This large freshwater lake extends for about 37 km (23 mi) southwest of Inverness, forming an important part of a series of interconnected and very murky bodies of water. The natural murkiness, created by the high peat content in the surrounding soil, contributes to the legend of Nessie and attracts thousands of visitors each year. Several operators offer boat tours around the lake, providing curious tourists with a chance to search for the famous monster. Don’t miss a visit to the nearby Loch Ness Center and Exhibition, examining the natural history and the myth of the lake’s elusive resident.

Loch Ness Reviews
La verdad es que no es más bonito que cualquier otro lago de las Highlands, pero es el Lago Ness, y eso lo convierte en imprescindible. Es un sitio muy agradable y si te apetece, puedes hacer un cruce... more »The truth is, it's no prettier than any other Lake in the Highlands, but it's Loch Ness, and that makes it a must-have. It's a very nice place and if you feel like it, you can take a lake cruise that's worth 15 pounds and lasts an hour. That said, he buys food before boarding the boat because there are only drinks inside.
A kisfiam latta Nessit!! Az Urquhart var alatti partra mentunk le, es ott! Sajnos a foto nem sikerult.. more »My little boy licked Nessit!! We are rescued at the beach below Urquhart var and there! Unfortunately the foto did not succeed..
Absolutely massive! Lovely drive around but fill the tank. Beautiful views, we went in December so very chilly. Wish we stopped to explore on foot, maybe next time.
There's a reason this place is world renowned! Words cannot describe the true beauty this place beholds which can only be appreciated when you see it for yourself! Also saw a big green monster but it was in the centre of a roundabout so probably not the real Loch Ness monster!
