Loch Ness Shores are looking forward to welcoming you.

Scotland’s most famous loch is the stunning backdrop for the Club’s new campsite in the Scottish Highlands. The aptly-named Loch Ness Shores Club campsite is located on the quieter south shore near the village of Foyers.

This 99 pitch, all-year-round campsite enjoys panoramic views around Loch Ness to the mountains beyond and is the perfect base for exploring the area’s historic sites like the magnificent Urquhart Castle, the charming towns and villages of Fort Augustus, Cannich and Drumnadrochit, or for getting active whether it be on foot, bike or boat.

The site itself has excellent eco credentials, including using innovative green technologies to heat and light the top notch facilities which include an amenity block with under floor heating and home from home shower rooms, an on-site shop and wi-fi. Boats (suitable for fishing) and canoes are available to hire on site.

Due to local planning restrictions please note that the arrival time for this site is after 2pm.

Worth Noting

The site is one of a few places around Loch Ness where shoreline access provides access to launch small boats. Activities on site (archery, den building, wildlife walks). Electric bikes, kayaks, and fishing boats with permits are available for hire.

Access and SatNav Advice

All arrivals after 2pm. Do not use a satnavs to access this site. Loch Ness Shores is on the south-east side of Loch Ness. Approaching on the A9, turn off at the Raigmore Hospital junction, then follow the south ring road (B8082 Sir Walter Scott Drive), which takes you to the B862 to Dores. Bear right in Dores on to B852 to Foyers. Approximately 2 miles after you pass through Inverfarigaig, you will see a white building on the right hand side (which used to be a hotel), turn right 100m further on behind the No Entry sign, which is signed for Lower Foyers and follow the CCC signs to the campsite.

This review is for Loch Ness Shores

Narrow access roads make journey in and out very interesting especially with farmers leaving mud on roads particularly around Balmaha. Could be difficult if you have a long outfit. Nearest village (Balmaha) is a fair walk along these roads, and not something I would recommend walking at night.

Lovely site very well kept.

This review is for Loch Ness Shores

Lovely site very well kept. Driving from Fort Augustus is interesting, I don't think I have ever seen so many 'passing place' signs! Made the mistake of leaving my watch in the showers on our last evening. True to their word I received a 'come and get it' call soon after leaving. some honest camper had found it and handed it in. Nice people!
