This review is for Loch Ness Shores

What a find! And it did take some finding as signage from the main road through Foyers could have been better, could a brown sign be put up to indicate the turning more clearly? Never met such friendly wardens who certainly go not just that extra mile but many miles. Where else is the reception/shop/ sitting area open at 9.00pm. Site is beautiful and the location superb and all the better for being on the other side of the Loch from most of the other sires / activities. A must for a return visit

This review is for Loch Ness Shores

Just back from a 3 night stay with our 2 children (16 & 10) and I wish we could've stayed longer. We all absolutely loved it. Staff were so friendly & helpful. Donald was great stopping off to see we were enjoying stay & also to let us know when kayaks were free for the kids. Facilities were the best I have seen so far. The kids had a great time going out on boat with their dad & went on the kayaks as well. There's a little swing park too with sandpit area. Site would be suitable to everyone. Lovely walk to the store & Waterfall Cafe in Foyers, There are a few stairs though so watch out. Notes for travelling DO NOT follow sat nav, use the directions given on CCC site. Also do not forget the midgie repellent, if you do forget the on site shop have some. All in all a fantastic site & will definitely go back here if we are visiting this area again.

This review is for Loch Ness Shores

The Toilet block facilities although very clean lack privacy cubicles, and have only 2 WC's in the Gents for a site of 99 pitches. Also as the site is fairly remote it is not handy for site-seeing.

This review is for Loch Ness Shores

As an older woman, travelling by myself, this was a lovely site. However, I know my circumstances are not the norm, so, as far as all other categories go, I would be completely confident in recommending it to all. Beautiful walks around, with the Foyers Falls well within walking distance, the Loch itself, just over the fence, with kayaking and boat hire available right on the beach. Very friendly, helpful owners and visitors, a great place altogether, if I could give it more than 5 in all places I definitely would. Thank you all at Loch Ness Shores.
