Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

What you will visit:
Loch Ness
The mysterious loch is 22 miles long, one mile wide and 740 feet deep. Its waters are stained dark brown from peat. Surrounded by picturesque scenery, the main draw is the possibility of catching a rare glimpse of Nessie, the legendary creature said to live in the Loch.

What you will see along the way:
A city driving tour of Inverness is an opportunity to gaze upon the city's celebrated historic sites. As your motorcoach wends its way through the streets, look for such notable structures as the impressive gothic-style Town House; the Georgian tollbooth steeple; Abertarff House, the oldest surviving house in Inverness, with crow-stepped gables; and Falcon Square, anchored by a statue of a unicorn with falcons flying. The sculptor was created by the world-famous sculptor Gerald Laing who lived in a castle which he renovated on the Black Isle. The Laura Ashley building was an old Victorian station building which was demolished. The bricks were then cleaned and the building rebuilt at a different angle.

Photo Opportunity:
Inverness Castle
On a cliff overlooking the River Ness, Inverness Castle is made of red sandstone, which makes it look pink under the sun. Built in 1836, the edifice occupies a site rich with history, where defensive structures have stood since 1057. The castle houses the Sherrif Court and is not open to the public. However the grounds and the castle north tower are. A circular path meanders along the river and offers one of the most beautiful riverside settings in Britain.
