Welcome to Loch Ness Travel


Flexible Touring with you in control ...


Loch Ness Travel Co. was founded by George Simpson in August 1991, offering Personalised and guided Tours of Loch Ness and the surrounding area including the Highlands and Islands of Scotland for the Individual or Group Traveller (up to 8 Passengers) with collections from all major Scottish Airports, Coach, Rail and Ferry Terminals. In addition we offer both Residents and Visitors alike a reliable and efficient Taxi Service for this location and beyond.


During 2002 we launched the Great Glen Way Baggage Shuttle and Support for walkers trekking the 79 mile long-distance Great Glen Way route between Fort William and Inverness. We operate our "Door2Door" Baggage Shuttle service along the entire route in both directions between Easter and mid-October. Our Loch Ness Shuttlebus transfers walkers from the village of Drumnadrochit via Loch Laide / Ladycairn or Blackfold for those wishing to divide the longest 20 mile section from Drumnadrochit to Inverness into two more manageable "chunks" by staying two nights in Drumnadrochit. This is a "request only" Walker Transfer Service and will be charged accordingly. Baggage drop-off/collection facilities at Fort William and Inverness for those wishing to commence their Trek on their day of arrival ... or departing on their day of completion.


Late in September 2010 we commenced a new venture called the East Highland Way Baggage Haul, moving Baggage and Walkers along the new 78 mile long-distance East Highland Way route with our "Door2Door" Baggage Shuttle service. The East Highland Way is a long-distance walk that connects Fort William with the ski and mountain resort of Aviemore and in doing-so, connects Scotland's other long-distance walks, namely the West Highland Way and the Great Glen Way to the southern end of the Speyside Way in the North East. There is an option along this East Highland Way route for walkers to join up with the old and long established Corrieyairack Pass starting from near Laggan Bridge taking them over the Monadhliath Mountains and back down to join the Great Glen Way route at Fort Augustus. The Corrieyairack Pass was built by General Wade and follows the footsteps of Bonnie Prince Charlie along Scotland's highest mountain road. For those commencing their East Highland Way trek on their day of arrival in Fort William or walking this route in the reverse direction, we offer Baggage drop-off/collection facilities at Fort William only at this time.


Please be aware that the East Highland Way cannot support "solo" Baggage along this route due to the high cost of Baggage Transfer.
