A trip to the Highlands would not be complete without a trip to the mystical Loch Ness, home of our elusive sea kelpie, Nessie. The Loch has stunning views and you can take a boat trip from Inverness to Drumnadrochit with Jacobite Cruises. Equally, the drive along the Loch side has passing places where you can pull over to take pictures and there is a visitor centre in the picturesque village of Drumnadrochit.
