Discover the Mystery of Loch Ness with Adventures by Disney

posted on April 23rd, 2014 by Danielle Berman, Marketing Manager, Adventures by Disney


Nestled in the Scottish Highlands is a grand lake with plenty of lore waiting to be unlocked. Serving as the backdrop for the Disney•Pixar film “Brave”, Scotland boasts lush landscapes with ancient stone castles and a proud heritage. The Adventures by Disney Scotland vacation can take you and your family through the beauty that inspired the epic animated feature film.

As your family embarks on this vacation in Scotland, you can unfold the mysteries behind Nessie, the famous elusive creature rumored to occupy Loch Ness, and decide whether you believe in its existence. Before exploring the dark waters yourself, a visit to the Loch Ness Exhibition Centre will set you in the right mindset with a presentation of both fact and lore about the loch. Groups will also meet with a naturalist who is considered to be the world’s foremost expert on Loch Ness to hear more details and answer any questions you may have.

After the exhilarating opportunity to canoe (or cruise) across the waters and search for Nessie, you will disembark at the majestic Urquhart Castle. This spot is said to be the most popular for Nessie sightings. From here, the breathtaking view will have you in awe as you discover the once-mighty fortress.

Unlocking the mystery behind Loch Ness is just one of the many activities of the nine-day, eight-night family vacation to Scotland from Adventures by Disney. For more information, visit adventuresbydisney.com/brave.

Stop worrying about squeezing green into your wardrobe today (watch out for that pinch!) and start preparing to be surrounded by the lush, evergreen pastures of Ireland. This St. Patrick’s Day, celebrate with your family by booking a vacation to Ireland with Adventures by Disney.
The Adventures by Disney Guided Tour of Ireland Includes a Visit to the Rock of Cashel

A three-night stay within the walls of the 16th century Dromoland Castle will have your family feeling like royal kings and queens of Ireland. Over the years, this majestic estate played host to numerous prominent figures, and entertained many families with its plenitude of leisure activities.
