Loch Ness from Dores Beach

Going south, the River Ness runs a few miles before emptying into Loch Ness, an unmissable destination for monster hunters, and gateway to many unforgettable hill walks in the high country surrounding this great expanse of water. Drumnadrochit is popular for its monster collections and pleasure cruises, while halfway along the north bank, the eerie ruins of Urquhart Castle stand high on a rocky promontory overlooking the loch.
