Loch Ness, Loch Ness

(3.7/5 based on 900+ reviews on the web)
The second deepest lake in Scotland, Loch Ness is best known for alleged sightings of the mysterious Loch Ness Monster, affectionately called Nessie. This large freshwater lake extends for about 37 km (23 mi) southwest of Inverness, forming an important part of a series of interconnected and very murky bodies of water. The natural murkiness, created by the high peat content in the surrounding soil, contributes to the legend of Nessie and attracts thousands of visitors each year. Several operators offer boat tours around the lake, providing curious tourists with a chance to search for the famous monster. Don’t miss a visit to the nearby Loch Ness Center and Exhibition, examining the natural history and the myth of the lake’s elusive resident. Our Invermoriston itinerary builder makes visiting Loch Ness and other Invermoriston attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • He wanted to avoid the visit but this winter the Highlands tours included this Lake famous for your Monster. There was the possibility of a 1:00 boat ride but only 4 people. Very cold and without any attractive. The village is interesting but too small. Great fish Haddock chips &;)

  • 在蘇格蘭從愛丁堡出發,經蘇格蘭高地到尼斯湖,蘇格蘭高地沒有多高只因緯度高,容易積雪没有森林,生活不易,生存不易,也造成蘇格蘭人是英國人内最勇的人民,冬天到尼斯湖,若天氣不好,黑水灰天,也許眼一花就看的到水怪,尼斯湖水很混,煤沙石很多、我們從Urouhart Castle上船,到下遊上船,到此一遊。
