Getting to the Loch from Inverness

by eric_ives

We're using the train from London to Inverness as a way to nap and cope with jet lag during our first day in Britain. We really don't have much time in Inverness (one evening and one morning), and I would like to take the family for a hike or outing so we could get a view of Loch Ness. How does one do this from Inverness? Do we hire a taxi to take us to a hiking spot, or do public busses carry us to a place where we can see the countryside and Loch Ness?

Best spot to head for is Drumnadrochit. It's about 8 miles south of Inverness on the west side of the Loch. There's an interesting visitor centre here & Urquhart castle is also nearby. Buses do run here but not certain how often. www.travelinescotland.com will have the answer for you.

Drumnadrochit sounds great, and my kids will love the Nessie Museum there. I suppose one can hire a taxi there from Inverness in the morning? I've checked the bus schedules on the Internet and if they run on time we might just have time to use a bus to get to the train station in time for our train, but I'd probably feel better just hiring a taxi. The fare for 8 miles can't be that high.

Taxi prices vary from city to city but shouldn't cost more than £15.
I would fix a price with the driver before setting out..

You could/may have the time to take a boat trip to the Nessie Museum and the bus back it's included in the fare. (All one price for the trip)

Or walk along the shore.
Enjoy your trip.

You can get a bus to see the loch (service buses will take you the full length and back, dropping you off anywhere en route).

But I can't for the life of me ever understand why anybody *wants* to see Loch Ness when there's so much around that's *much* more impressive and *much* less overrun with I-Spy tourists!

I think Loch Ness is a tourist trap considering other more beautiful places in Scotland. Most tourists go to Loch Ness for the Urquhuart Castle, the Nessie museum and take a picture with the plastic Nessie in a pond.
I feel that Fort William is better than Loch Ness.

Good Question, unless you are able to drive on the opposite side of the street and car! The drive from Inverness to Loch Ness is short, and if you want to get further south into the highlands around Ben Nevis mountains, it takes 1/2 day and you could be back in Inverness by nightfall or continue south to see other parts of Scotland. The lochs are plenty and so are the mountains. This is a great time of year to climb a little or a lot and breath air that just tingles your toes it is so fresh. Each mt. has a great quality of it's own.. some are rocky and craigy, some are dotted with sheep, and some have the pretty greenery, (watch out for the prickely gorse bushes), and the thistles will be blooming good soon. Heather will take until cooler air drifts in. Do try the drive. You can stop when you want to and visit the little towns and villages and admire the cleanliness like we don't see here in the USA. I love the UK, can't you tell!

Travel Tips for Inverness

Roadsigns on the water...

by daarth

I was not used to see “road” signs form a boat, but the one we saw here was best followed. It was a warning to stay off the one edge of the canal, as the water flowed over to the river. A small boat with limited power could get sucked off the canal... Read from the ships' logbook in the travelogue here:

Take a walk around the 'Islands'

by aegialichick

This wee walk doesn't take long, whether you walk it, cycle it, push a buggy around it, rollerskate or skateboard it ... los of park benches along the way to sit and enjoy the sound of running water or read a book when (ahem, WHEN?) the weather gets better ....

Culloden Battlefield -Well of the Dead

by stevezero

The Well of the Dead is situated close to where the fighting was heaviest. Here, among several other corpses, was found the body of Alexander Macgillivray of Dunmaglass, who led the Clan Chattan regiment in the Prince's army.
Clan Chatten, who numbered 350, lost, it is believed, more heavily than any other regiment. All the officers were killed, except three, and one of these was wounded. Dunmaglass, who died stretching out for water at a spring, now know as the Well of the Dead, was engaged to a young lady, Elizabeth Campbell of Clunas, who died broken-hearted two years after the battle.

Inverness capital of the Highlands

by Renteboy

"Nice town in the North."

Glasgow, Edinburgh… a few big cities that weren’t on my list, but Inverness did. It isn’t that big city after all and it appears to me that it consists out of an old and a new modern part. The old one has all its charms and tranquil ness a part you can enjoy walking trough it. The new part is loaded with shops and is just an ordinary “shopping street”.

Because Inverness has an airport it makes the best starting point for a journey trough the highlands. The city gives you the opportunity to get your stuff for the trip also it can be an excellent ground or base to start your daily tours or tourist visits in the neighborhood.

"Nightlife"

Like I mentioned it is the capital of the Highlands, it means that a lot of –young-people are spending the night. Beside the pubs there are a few discothèques and dancing’s too.
