Boating holidays on Loch Ness and the Caledonian Canal

Boating holidays have become very popular in recent years and deservedly so. Modern boat facilities are fantastic and the number of options for taking this type of holiday are now more than ever. You can choose from a week on a luxury barge to family cabin cruiser hire on Loch Ness and the Caledonian Canal.  

Here is where you will find boating holiday ideas and businesses offering accommodation onboard a boat cruiser or house boat on the Caledonian canal or Loch Ness. If you are a little more "hands on" then why not consider paddling the Great Glen Canoe Trail  or if time is short get on the water by taking a pleasure cruise on Loch Ness.

We are a trusted and local organisation, so you can have peace of mind when making online bookings or when booking rooms directly with any of the companies featured in our Visit Inverness Loch Ness website.
