A worthwhile trip to see the Loch Ness and the castle. The guides were good and informative though at times give overlapping information. The time at the castle was a little short (another 30 minutes would be great), but enough if you want to just roam around. Get your jackets ready as it could get really windy on the cruise.

I loved it, if you have little time is what you need. Neil our very genius driver, on the ship they also explain to you and the time in the castle seemed to me, well, of course if you are going to spend taking photos you will not be able to travel it.

The trip was very nice and we had wonderful sunshine in September. It is a short distance by bus to the departure point and then by boat for just under an hour across Loch Ness to Urquhart Castle. There are also trips that do not include an exit at the castle, but that was important to me and even if only one ruin is left, it is still very nice. After about 1 hour, you will return from the car park above the Castles by bus along Loch Ness back to Inverness. I can only recommend the trip.
