Fort Williams to Lochness Tour

We are coming in May and are looking for a tour from Fort William to Loch Ness.  Does one exist?

    Not sure of a private tour but you could take a local bus heading to Inverness and get off at the Clansman hotel to do the Jacobite boat tour + Urquhart castle. There are 3 or 4 journeys that are feasible a day (I think, takes 1.5 hours). Bus schedule:

    Other options in addition to getting the bus is to get off at Fort Augustus and try one of the Cruise Loch Ness  cruises. Or stop off at Drumnadrochit and do some of the shorter tours available there. There are some good walking options around Drumnadrochit if you want to explore the wider area but don't want to do a long linear walk like the Great Glen Way. I can help with the latter option :smiley:

    The benefit of stopping at somewhere like Fort Augustus is that you spend less time in the bus and should have more time to explore. I'm really hoping someone starts the Fort Augustus - Foyers - Drum - Dochgarroch boat route again but sadly there's no sign of that happening anytime soon :(
