Loch Ness Guide

Fort Augustus is one of the most charming towns in the Highlands, set on the banks of Loch Ness. This area of the country is breathtaking, and if the Loch doesn't leave you awe struck then the mountains and walkways around the town certainly will.

But no trip to this corner of the world would be complete without trying your luck at finding Loch Ness' most famous resident; Nessie. Why not relax by the Loch and try some Nessie spotting or enjoy a Loch Ness cruise? Or find out about the history of the Loch Ness Monster at one of the 2 rival monster exhibitions at Drumnadrochit Our Loch Ness guide aims to help you to get the most out of your stay in the Scottish Highlands.

Once you've got your sighting in, head up to Urquhart Castle. This is an impressive historic ruin enjoying a stunning location on the banks of Loch Ness. It was an important medieval fortress, guarding the entrance to the Great Glen from the 13th Century and playing a major role in 500 years of violent Scottish history. Finish up the night in one of the town's traditional pubs and have a pint of local ale or something a little stronger to wash down the locals' Nessie tales!

Best hostel in town!

Morag's Lodge in Loch Ness is a home away from home in the Scottish Highlands. Relax with the open fire and head down to the Loch to search for Nessie!
