Unravel the legends of the world-famous monster and holiday in a Loch Ness cottage.
Arguably Scotland's top tourist destination, Loch Ness has so much to offer, whether you explore by car, bicycle or foot and whether your interests lie in natural, historic or mythical attractions.
With two sides to discover, each roughly 23 miles long, expect no day to be the same. One of the best ways is from the water on a guided boat trip. They operate year round and each season brings something new. Look out for leaping salmon and trout, otter or deer at the shore - oh, and 'Nessie', of course! Or hire a canoe and paddle at your own pace - the choice is yours!
Historic gems hug the shoreline, the imposing ruins of Urquhart Castle of particular note - discover more about the region's history and geology at the Loch Ness Centre Exhibition in Drumnadrochit.
Villages worth a mention include Invermoriston and Fort Augustus, the latter a good place to view the Caledonian Canal's remarkable lock system. The city of Inverness is within easy reach too.
Enjoy walking or cycling? Head for the south eastern shoreline and escape-from-it-all, with wild landscapes and mesmerising loch views - don't miss the dramatic 100ft waterfalls of Foyers.
Exercise and fresh air encourage a healthy appetite and even in the remotest parts of Loch Ness, you'll find some fantastic pubs serving hearty Scottish fare that won't cost the earth.
But will you meet 'Nessie'? We can't make any promises, but perhaps you'll spot her from your Loch Ness cottage's window!
