Loch Ness boat operators

A cruise on the mysterious and beautiful Loch Ness is one of the best ways to enjoy some of the Highlands’ stunning scenery.

At 23 miles long, a mile wide and more than 750 feet deep, Loch Ness contains enough water to fill every lake and reservoir in England. And thanks to tales of its legendary monster, the loch is one of the most famous stretches of water in the world.

The Lovat is located in Fort Augustus at the southern end of Loch Ness. We offer the ideal location for anyone wanting to enjoy an unforgettable Loch Ness boat trip.
