This review is for Loch Ness Shores

We were going to Loch Ness to specifically do some family research. Our aim was to get some genealogy support from Highland Archives in Inverness. However we did not count on the superb support and help we got from Lynne and Donald Forbes. Unlike many Sites to, our surprise the Forbes were locals and therefore had years of knowledge about the local area. We stayed in a wigwam, which had been supplied with a fridge and microwave, kettle and heater. It was all very clean and tidy when we arrived. Donald and Lynne were very friendly and welcoming and introduced us to the site In the mornings we would open the door and look straight onto Loch Ness.In the evenings we would sit next to our fire pit. The facilities were in a fantastic large wooden building that is architecturally quite pleasing (not your normal concrete block). Inside the showers and toilets were of a very high standard. They were well thought out and very clean. Later we discovered that it used renewable energy. What made this site special for me was Lynne and Donalds local history knowledge. After returning from the archives in Inverness my new family tree. Donald knew where exactly my ancestors lived. He was able to point me in the direction of an old crofting area, long gone, but the ruins still visible. Because of this they made our visit very special and we will be very grateful.

This review is for Loch Ness Shores

Perhaps the caravan club can take a few pointers from this very very well organised site that Donald and lynn are extremely well organised so you can enjoy yourself s without noticing the hard work that gose on behind the scenes.So a lay in at 9 am without the tractors, bins emptying ,grass cutting, toilets shut at 10am then this is the place to stay. We have been on the road touring now 5 month 13 sites and this is the best so far on a year out. Well done
