Loch Ness Shores are looking forward to welcoming you.

Scotland’s most famous loch is the stunning backdrop for the Club’s new campsite in the Scottish Highlands. The aptly-named Loch Ness Shores Club campsite is located on the quieter south shore near the village of Foyers.

This 99 pitch, all-year-round campsite enjoys panoramic views around Loch Ness to the mountains beyond and is the perfect base for exploring the area’s historic sites like the magnificent Urquhart Castle, the charming towns and villages of Fort Augustus, Cannich and Drumnadrochit, or for getting active whether it be on foot, bike or boat.

The site itself has excellent eco credentials, including using innovative green technologies to heat and light the top notch facilities which include an amenity block with under floor heating and home from home shower rooms, an on-site shop and wi-fi. Boats (suitable for fishing) and canoes are available to hire on site.

Due to local planning restrictions please note that the arrival time for this site is after 2pm.

Worth Noting

The site is one of a few places around Loch Ness where shoreline access provides access to launch small boats. Activities on site (archery, den building, wildlife walks). Electric bikes, kayaks, and fishing boats with permits are available for hire.

Access and SatNav Advice

All arrivals after 2pm. Do not use a satnavs to access this site. Loch Ness Shores is on the south-east side of Loch Ness. Approaching on the A9, turn off at the Raigmore Hospital junction, then follow the south ring road (B8082 Sir Walter Scott Drive), which takes you to the B862 to Dores. Bear right in Dores on to B852 to Foyers. Approximately 2 miles after you pass through Inverfarigaig, you will see a white building on the right hand side (which used to be a hotel), turn right 100m further on behind the No Entry sign, which is signed for Lower Foyers and follow the CCC signs to the campsite.

We did a lot of walking from the site or using the local bus service which goes into Inverness. Falls of Foyers and the walk along the loch to Inverfarigaig was good

The site location and view is fantastic and if walk alongside of Loch were possible that could add value and attraction to visitors , it`s very quite place to rest for few days if facilities to far end of the camp were available.

This review is for Loch Ness Shores

We came to loch ness as the 2nd out of 3 campsites on our Scotland trip, this being for the longest and we were not disappointed the site has amazing views and plenty to do with the children. On arrival staff were very helpful in which pitch to have and what way to face the tent on getting the best views and the sun setting, we had a minor medical issue with our 3 year old daughter and the staff we so helpful in giving advice and taking the apporat action. We went to the loch ness exhibition center which the children loved as it's like a walk through cinema. We took a trip to fort augustus which is a beautiful town where my husband and two children took a speed boat trip and me and my youngest tookthe cruise both of which are a must do. Over all a great hoilday.

This review is for Loch Ness Shores

We stayed there 10 nights out of the 14 we had booked as we had decided to move on and spend a few nights in the Borders before heading to the South Coast. The staff were very welcoming and friendly and nothing seemed to be any trouble for them. Our only slight niggle was the lack of toilet and shower cubicles, I found myself queuing for a cubicle on 7 out of the 10 mornings we were there, I had varied my ablution times on several of these days so as to avoid any such queue, granted the site was fairly busy but I just felt it needed another bank of shower/toilet cubicles. I would urge anyone visiting the site to adhere to the Clubs directions to get there.. trust me I "tried" an alternative route signposted from the A9 to Fort Augustus.. my other half is still traumatised and amazed i managed to get our twin axle through very narrow tight and twisty single track roads ;-)
