Visited for two nights with our two dogs.

This review is for Loch Ness Shores

Visited for two nights with our two dogs. Beautiful location on the edge of the famous Loch Ness (on the south side). This is really a hidden gem and the village of Foyers is a short walk away. Lovely walks right from the campsite. Maps can be purchased on site. Site kept spotless and staff very friendly. Good on site facilities. Good TV reception and Wi-Fi can also be purchased. Visited The Craigdarroch Inn which is UP HILL, dog friendly where you can enjoy a meal and a drink in the bar or beer garden. Views of the Loch awesome from here. A walk to the Falls of Foyers also worth a visit.

This review is for Loch Ness Shores

From the moment we arrived we were greeted with the best of highland hospitality from Donald and Lynne. Donald is a credit to all that makes holidaying in Scotland great. The weather didn't play nice but still had good spells of sunshine and enjoyed the many fantastic walks that can be reached on foot or by car if you want to venture a bit further, 30 mins South to Fort Augustus or same time North to Inverness. My wife was delighted, having seen a family of badgers, seka deer, red squirrels and buzzards a plenty and a good glimpse of a hunting osprey. Our 2 Jack Russell's had a great time on the dog friendly site. This site caterers for all actives and can be as active or relaxing as you choose

This review is for Loch Ness Shores

Amenities are A++, Donald's knowledge of everything is brilliant! Lyn was a pleasure to meet every day & very helpful. Bonnie walks within mins, kayaks & powerboats on site along with fire pits on the shore of loch ness and wee beach, well stocked high end shop & reasonably priced inc. local cakes rolls,breads etc & as my 9 yr daughter commented the 'best sticky toffee pud by far' . Reception area lovely to spend time in with WiFi access AND coffee.Both local pubs were very nice but highly recommend foyers house and the whisky snug! Would also highly recommend Cruise Loch Ness Rib trip - Marcus & tony - brilliant ride down Loch Ness with good banter all the way. Also Ice-cream van visits nightly! All we heard throughout our stay from others were good comments-a winner all round I think. Definitely a site not to miss out on. We shall return for definite. Can't wait to return :-)
