Loch Ness Tours and Cruises departing from Inverness

There are very few people in the modern world who have not heard of Loch Ness! The Loch Ness Monster, ‘Nessie’, is a recurrent figure in modern literature, television movies and games. Loch Ness, the largest freshwater lake in the British Isles, is twenty four miles long and, at one point, one and a half miles wide. It has an average depth of four hundred and fifty feet and at times plunges close to a thousand. It is cold and murky, with dangerous currents. In short, it is the perfect place to hide a monster from even the most prying eyes of science. 

Many lochs of Northern Scotland had ancient legends about monsters and the like. In 565 A.D., though, Loch Ness's story was written down. The account tells of Saint Columba who saved a swimmer from the  hungry lake monster. From then on rumours about the creature were repeated from time to time. New searches for Nessie take place almost daily, by tourists and experts alike!
