There is a lot of exploring to do around Loch Ness and when you’ve had your fill of that for the day you can go exploring in Inverness, maybe practice your retail therapy skills! Look for deals in the Victorian market or fashion in the more contemporary Eastgate Shopping Centre.
There are many small villages and "off the beaten track" roads around the area of Loch Ness and each village has its own charm and appeal. Naturally you keep one eye on the Loch as you travel, hoping for the next sighting of our famous monster Nessie. Wherever you go around the Loch there is an abundance of wildlife thriving in the Highlands.
In between the villages you will come across castles, viewpoints, picnic spots and historic sites that abound with myths and legends and will captivate you for days on end.
For drivers there is a multitude of places to visit in your car. Alternatively you can leave the car behind and let someone else do the driving by booking a coach tour from Inverness or a guided tour on foot.
You should find our Inverness and Loch Ness area maps to be an invaluable aid to your adventure.
