This is a very good, clean, friendly-staffed site which blends in nicely with the locale.

This review is for Loch Ness Shores

This is a very good, clean, friendly-staffed site which blends in nicely with the locale. The shop is a bit limited in choice and a bit pricey. However, it has the basics to get you over the first night supplies crisis. Make more of the camping kit available, offer some advice on types of surface to pitch on and it would be a winner. The staff will do anything for you. The facilities such as showers are second to none. As are the the washing and drying. Good play area at back of site.

I am a single mum with a girl and there was plenty to explore.

This review is for Loch Ness Shores

I am a single mum with a girl and there was plenty to explore. My daughter loved all the new things she saw and found and I felt at ease to allow her to explore in and around the site on her own. The staff help us as novice campers and made us feel welcome even though we were only in the wigwam for the one night. I enjoyed my visit to the area, loved the amenities on the site, they were clean and well kept. The wigwam was fun to stay in and I would recommend that and this site to anyone wanting to try glamping or even those with motor homes. It was a relaxed and enjoyable short stay, even the 'handsome well built charming manager' Mark. o and the notice board with what you see from the shores of the loch was a brilliant idea, not sure there is sharks about though. A brilliant place for all to enjoy.

What can I say? Absolutely brilliant site. Super clean amenities and friendly staff.

This review is for Loch Ness Shores

What can I say? Absolutely brilliant site. Super clean amenities and friendly staff. Child friendly site but not unruly and loud. This site caters for all, from couples to families of all ages. The scenery is amazing and you have direct access to the shores of the loch where you can go for walks and have a fire or BBQ. It's located on the quieter eastern shore of Loch Ness so you do have to travel to attractions. Having said that the sights you see whilst driving to the attractions makes it pleasurable and not a chore. The local shops and pub are all very friendly too. The new cafe/farm shop Cameron's is a must. Laze your days away on site or use it as a base for exploring. Either way it's a site you will return to.
