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.

Loch Ness Shores also offers the opportunity to go glamping in one of its five luxury wooden wigwam cabins, all boasting comfy caravan-style beds. These stylish wigwam cabins are a first for the Club Site network, with two comfortably accommodating up to five, the other three, two adults and two children.

Wigwam® Cabins available:

3 Wee Brave Wigwam® Cabins, £50 per night in low and mid seasons, £55 per night in high season (2 adults + 2 children)

2 Big Chief Wigwam® Cabins, £60 per night in low and mid seasons, £65 per night in high season (up to 5 people).

Lots of waymarked walks in the general area. Offering various levels of challenges.

This review is for Loch Ness Shores

Lots of waymarked walks in the general area. Offering various levels of challenges. Some steep sections. The site is open in the winter time and there are lots of other places open nearby too. There are quite a few places to cycle, but some of this would involve cycling on narrow public roads, so care would certainly be required if children were in your group. You could also chill out at the side of Loch Ness. All the better if you get nice weather.

This review is for Loch Ness Shores

We loved this site, some nice walks along the loch side, river that are relatively flat. (although the nearest pub is a good 20minute walk and up hill. Lynn & Donald who own and run the site are really helpful, we felt vey welcome. The road in is singe track for quite a bit with passing places so may be difficult for larger units but saying that there were two huge RVs/Motor Homes came in when we were there. Great trip into Fort Augustus and lots of lovely places for lunch and dinner in near by villages. Definitely somewhere to get away from it all.
