Loch Ness & Inverness Scotland
Loch Ness in the Highlands of Scotland is one of the most popular UK holiday destinations. We provide a wide selection of quality accommodation in Inverness and Loch Ness - cottages, hotels, bed and breakfast and lots of things to see and do for a great family holiday - castles, golf, fishing, hiking and activity holidays all within easy reach of Scotland's fastest growing city Inverness.
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.
No holiday in Scotland is complete without a visit to Loch Ness. Over 20 miles long, a mile wide and 700 feet at its deepest, Loch Ness 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.
