This review is for Loch Ness Shores

The site is new and as such the facilities are 5 star and extremely clean. The site owners were friendly and helpful from the outset. It was a great base for all kinds of outdoor activities especially walking and and wildlife viewing which was our main requirement. There are some lovely waterfalls that can be walked to nearby on well designed paths - however they are steep for elderly or infirm people. Equally it is peaceful and tranquil for those who want to spend quiet days by Loch Ness. The only downside was that we had bought an annual WiFi access card which couldn't be used on the site, although WiFi is available it was expensive. All in all a great place to stay and it can cater for almost everyones needs - highly recommended.

Some narrow roads to access but plenty of passing places. Really friendly welcome.

This review is for Loch Ness Shores

Some narrow roads to access but plenty of passing places. Really friendly welcome. Quiet in nov (just 12vans) but that suited us. Great for country walks, short drive to Inverness/Loch Ness centre/urqhurt castle etc. Lovely views, great for Nessie spotting. Nice little park for kids, sandpit and ball games area. Eco friendly buildings and most modern and cleanest facilities we've been in to date. An impromptu firework display was held whilst we were there with all the friendly local community present for the show, ceilidh and food. Our pitch was away from the main building and nothing was heard when we retired for the night. Has a shop on site and cafe area. The only issue we could see is if someone with mobility limitations was on the upper (superior serviced) sites as there are several steps/slope to get down to the main level. Other than that it is a great place and we and our 9yr old can't wait to go back.

I agree with all the positive remarks from previous reviewers.

This review is for Loch Ness Shores

I agree with all the positive remarks from previous reviewers. My only criticism is why, on a new site, it's not possible to get the pitches level. Even with levelling ramps our motorhome was nowhere near level.
