Things to see and do in and around Loch Ness

Around Loch Ness itself there are many options from a Jacobite cruise on the loch perhaps calling in at the ruined Urquhart Castle which dates back to the 13th century; a visit to the splendid waterfalls at Foyers; or a tour of the Loch Ness Exhibition Centre where you can explore the nature and geology of the Great Glen, the engineering feat of the Caledonian Canal and of course the legend of the elusive monster.

Alternatively a little further north, the picturesque village of Dornoch is well worth exploring with a quality antique shop, interesting bookshop and in particular the 'Jail Dornoch' (a former 19th century jail now converted into a unique shopping experience while still retaining many of the original features and even some cells) offers the discerning shopper an exclusive choice of gifts, pottery, jewellery, clothing including cashmere, accessories and much more.  Dornoch also offers a good range of cafes, tea rooms and restaurants to ease the away the strains of an afternoon's shopping!
