Loch Ness


Loch Ness

Loch Ness, with its legendary monster, is the most famous of all lochs; at twenty three miles long it is the second largest lake in Britain by area. Its great depth, however, means it holds several times more water than its nearest rival, Loch Lomond. The area around the Loch features a variety of walks, with more waymarked trails and easy routes suitable for families compared to some other parts of the Highlands.

There are great forest and moorland walks starting from various points along the north side of the Loch. The southern side has much less traffic and a delightful landscape of small hills, attractive woodland and a large number of small, freshwater lochs that are reknowed among fishermen but little known by the rest of the public
