The Loch actually connects to the sea, here is a quote from yahoo
Loch (Lake) Ness is NOT landlocked as many people believe. It is connected to the Atlantic from both ends. A series of canals and locks connect the
Lake from the Atlantic to the west BUT going east from Loch Ness there is but a few miles of river that join the sea at Inverness. (Inver = river) The
river is actually quite large and deep until it nears the lake. Manmade spillways (built when a system of canals was made) hinder the way but not so
much that migratory fish (ie: salmon, trout, eels, seals and much more) still manage to swim into the lake every year. Predatory animals follow these
spawning schools as well. At times, extreme high tides and seasonal flooding the river swells enough that small whales have been found entering the
Recent discoveries indicate a system of underwater caves that may possibly link the lake to the sea but is as of yet unconfirmed. Since the lake is
above sea level many people claim that any caves in the lake cannot exist. The water level would/could not be higher obviously. But if the caves were
not water filled entirely (think P-trap beneath your sink) the lake could be above sea level and still be connected to the sea.
I won't ramble anymore on the subject but to answer your question:
There is definitely a direct route to the sea from Loch Ness.
