Cruise Loch Ness Boat Tours

Cruise Loch Ness

Take a cruise on Loch Ness

Cruise Loch Ness is a boat tour operator, based at Fort Augustus, on the southern tip of Loch Ness. If you are travelling around Loch Ness during your stay with us at the Kingsmills Hotel, a stop at Fort Augustus is a must! This is where Loch Ness meets the Caledonian Canal, and it is a popular and picturesque village to visit, about an hour’s drive from our hotel. Cruise Loch Ness has been operating from Fort Augustus since 1968, and today offers a range of boat tours on the loch, including scenic cruises and high-speed RIB cruises.

Scenic Cruises on Loch Ness

The scenic cruises run daily, all year round, and they are a great way to see the sights of the loch. You’ll learn about its rich history, and have the opportunity to spot an array of amazing wildlife. Perhaps you might even spot Nessie herself! The boat even has sonar equipment on board, which beams live images from beneath the water. Daytime cruises take around 50 minutes and evening cruises are one hour long. Book your cruise online.

Thrilling speed boat rides

For those seeking a little adventure, Cruise Loch Ness also offers a choice of speed cruises. These tours on high-speed RIB boats will zip you across Scotland’s most famous loch, showing you the sights along the way. These tours run seasonally, and there are height restrictions, so please check the website for full details.

Dog-friendly leisure cruises

We are a dog-friendly hotel, and the good news is Cruise Loch Ness’s slower, scenic boat tours are dog-friendly too. They welcome dogs on their larger vessels, so your four-legged friends can join in the fun too!
