    Top site for fishing

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 must be one of the best run and friendliest sites that there is.

This review is for Loch Ness Shores

This must be one of the best run and friendliest sites that there is. We were greeted by name at the entrance and directed to the office. The reception could not have been more helpful. We were able to walk around the site and pick the pitch that we wanted, everything was explained to us about all the facilities from the amenities block, shop, on-site food bar, activities around the site to the various waste disposal sites. The amenities block is exceptional! The cleanliness is superb and the attention to detail amazing. It is hard to believe that it is in it's fourth year as it looks brand new. For those with environmental leanings, all the water is heated via ground-water heat transfer and the electricity is provided by solar panels (whenever possible - this IS Scotland!!! Haha) and all water on site comes from a borehole. The staff are superb. The motto of the site seems to be "Yes We Can". Everything you ask is dealt with in an efficient and friendly manner whether it be a query about the site or questions about local attractions. Nothing seems to be too much effort or trouble to them. There is a well stocked shop and coffee, tea etc. as well as super ice cream is available in reception where you can find books and photo albums on local wildlife, etc.. Other books, dvd's and board games etc. are also there to borrow. The site hot food van is a specialist converted American Streamline caravan! The food is very good and made from local ingredients. If you want a clean, friendly and very well run site for your next holiday I cannot recommend this site highly enough.

This review is for Loch Ness Shores

An absolutely gorgeous holiday destination,the owners are lovely and helpful,and the site is clean and tidy,but it is the place itself,the Loch is just magical I adore it,we were lucky to be at the front,overlooking the Loch,but I think most of the pitchers can see the Loch ? There is a retro caravan were you can get breakfast or dinner and a marquee were you can eat
