DrumnadrochitDrumnadrochit

Situated at the head of Urquhart Bay on the northern shore of Loch Ness, you find the pleasant village of Drumnadrochit. If anywhere could be classed as the home of the Loch Ness Monster mystery, this would arguably be the spot.

Drumnadrochit is the home to the Loch Ness Centre (formerly Loch Ness 2000) whose five star exhibition is endorsed by Scottish Natural Heritage as a ‘portal to the unique phenomenon that is Loch Ness’. Here, the real inner secrets of Britain’s greatest lake are revealed, shedding some very unexpected light upon the mystery for which it is so widely known. And if you’re really keen, you can even go for a monster-spotting cruise on the Loch with one of the excellent cruise companies sailing each day.

Despite being such a magnet for tourists, Drumnadrochit still retains a great deal of charm and personality. The well-kept village green is home to a stunning miniature model of nearby Urquhart Castle – and a stroll through the village will take you past white-harled traditional cottages, cafés, and tasteful gift shops.

Drumnadrochit is an ideal choice if you want to stay near to Urquhart Castle, and has a range of accommodation options – including the contrastingly modern Drumnadrochit Hotel. The Castle itself is just a short distance away and is well worth a visit – to experience the amazing views, stroll around the ancient ruins and find out more about its turbulent history.
