The boating holidays on the Scottish Lochs are a great way to explore this breath-taking area. Loch Oich, Loch Ness, Loch Lochy and Loch Dochfour are interconnected by the Caledonian Canal and you can cover a distance of sixty miles between Inverness and Fort William. You will be in constant sight of the majestic mountains which surround the Great Glen and this is some of the most beautiful scenery you will witness in the UK.
The most popular boats for this holiday are cruisers which can sleep from two to six people. They have a fully equipped galley and are totally self-catering. You can have a rest from cooking and stop off at one of the number of unspoilt villages and try the local cuisine. A visit to a distillery is a must whilst in Scotland to sample the national drink and perhaps purchase a bottle or two.
When you enter Loch Ness keep your eyes peeled in case you catch a glimpse of the monster. You can also visit the Loch Ness Visitors Centre and the famous Urquhart Castle. Inverness is a wonderful place and there is a very warm and friendly atmosphere here. If you are feeling energetic head for Fort William and climb up Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in the UK. Boating Holidays on the Scottish Lochs allow you to see some of the most stunning scenery from a very different vantage point.
