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 eight luxury wooden wigwam cabins, all boasting comfy caravan-style beds. These stylish wigwam cabins are a first for the Club Site network, with four comfortably accommodating up to five, the other four, two adults and two children.

Wigwam® Cabins available:

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

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

This review is for Loch Ness Shores

we stopped here for 4 nights on a Scotland tour and it was such an idyllic location that I wished we had booked longer. the staff were friendly and the camp is very clean and modern the only criticism I would make is that there was no Camping and Caravan Clubsite webite access on this site as they had their own which only worked in the reception area. I was a bit disappointed as I had paid for a years worth of cover and it wasn't available here! saying that the onsite shop was better than most camp site shops and had a host of locally produced items. the streamline caravan catering van just outside the reception was also very welcombe and the Kebabs and Venison burgers were delicious and reasonable. the site is on the banks of Loch Ness and I got to do a bit of fishing although I didn't even get a bite in 2 hours, what a place to sit and not catch anything as the views are stunning. There is loads to do from the local Loch Ness centre to Urquart castle and my favourite, Culloden what a moving monument. I would definitely come again

This review is for Loch Ness Shores

Camped for 2 nights in no-electric field - open to wind, more sheltered parts along perimeter loved by midges. No direct views of the loch. Handy shelter/hut proved useful when cooking in the rain, but with no table I was glad I had my own. Excellent modern, clean facilities building, just a shame it's so far from the no-electric field and down a steep slope. Campers need it the most! Quick loo trip first thing was interesting! Wi-fi not through usual C&CC service, though free at cafe/reception. Good stock of food in reception. Out of the way location, means it takes some time to get anywhere, along rural lanes, but it is very quiet. Lovely views of loch nearby, from the site up the hill to the village to the lit houses at dusk is nice.

The road to the site is a single track with passing places.

This review is for Loch Ness Shores

The road to the site is a single track with passing places. Travel with caution, as not everyone takes the bends slowly, you could find yourself having to break sharply. The site itself is beautiful. The toilet block is spotless and clean. You can fish for free from the shore, or pay if you fish by boat, these can be hired from reception. There is a small shop onsite for essentials, bread and milk can be ordered for the next day. OUr first night we tried the airstream take away. The food is locally sorced and is very good. Sadly the weather wasn't very good, had rain most days so wasn't able to walk as much as would have liked. There are numerous walks from the site, a map can be obtained from reception for a small fee. You are in the middle of nowhere so make sure you have provisions as it is a long journey to Fort Agustus or Inverness. Inverness has a choice of supermarkets if you wish to go food shopping. Fort Agustus is worth a visit also. Apart from the wet weather we really enjoyed our stay.
