This review is for Loch Ness Shores

This site is owned and run by a couple with years of experience of using campsites and it is obvious that they have used their experience in designing the kind of site that we all hope to find. A very friendly welcome and superb surroundings make this a delight to visit. Walks of varying length and difficulty direct from the site, activities on the loch and a pub just a short walk away, what more could you want

This review is for Loch Ness Shores

I have visited this site on a few occasions and plan to return. It is a first class site with plenty of space and excellent facilities. The site owners are invariably friendly and helpful, and excellent ambassadors for the Club. A great location on my favourite, South, side of the loch. It's a fine base for a day trip to Inverness or Fort William, and also for cycling the many quiet roads in the area. Falls of Foyers are worth a visit, though usually a mere shadow of their former self. Thoroughly recommended.

This review is for Loch Ness Shores

The stars given is an indication of what can be expected from the warmth of the reception to willingness to help in any way.The facilities are beyond compare.Altho' we only stayed one night and did not explore the locality we can see that there is much that can be done round about.Wildlife abounds.The drive to and from the site should be at a leisurely pace!!
