Loch Ness & Inverness Scotland

Loch Ness, close to the Highland city of Inverness is one of the most popular UK holiday destinations. We offer a wide selection of quality accommodation from both city and country - cottages, hotels, bed and breakfast, camping as well as lots of things to see and do for a great family holiday - castles, golf, fishing, hiking and activity holidays all in one fabulous destination. Where else can you find city lights and dark skies so close to each other? Inverness is a city oasis surrounded by the most magnificent Highland countryside of Lochs, heather moors and hills.

The central location of Loch Ness makes it the perfect destination for holidays in the Scottish Highlands. At the loch itself, of course, there's always a chance to glimpse 'Nessie', the world-famous Loch Ness Monster. Inverness too is enviously served with first class air, road and rail links from the rest of Scotland, the UK and the continent making it an ideal destination for corporate functions and business conferences too!

No holiday in Scotland is complete without a visit to Loch Ness, just 8 miles from Inverness. Over 20 miles long, a mile wide and 700 feet at its deepest, it is the largest lake in Scotland by volume. The surrounding area is filled with historic attractions, natural wonders, cosy places to stay, and superb eateries. The Loch Ness Monster is just one of the many myths and legends to be discovered in this particularly beautiful part of Scotland.
