Come and have a great day out for all the family at the Loch Ness Centre & Exhibition.
We have seven themed areas and five hundred million years of history, natural mystery and legend, revealing the unique environment of Loch Ness and the famous Nessie story. With translations in 17 languages and 11 language narrations. The exhibition is an insight into the Loch's wider significance, whilst keeping the mystery centre stage.

Using a highly effective mix of lasers, digital projection and special effects, the Loch Ness Centre & Exhibition charts the history of the monster by exploring Scotland's geological past it's folklore and the various research projects carried out on the Loch.

We run cruises from the centre hourly every day during the season on The Loch Ness Project research vessel Deepscan. We have an onsite hotel with 29 bedrooms and a cafe/restaurant seating upto 120 people. With a vast shopping facility we can offer customers everything from kilts, cashmere and woollens, to a Whisky shop, Nessie shop and even a place to research your ancestry!
