“Wigwam stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014

Had a wonderful 2 might stay at Loch Ness shores in a wigwam. More than enough space for me and my partner and our 2 children. Excellent site,clean, amazing location and great play park - goals and sandbox which my children were delighted with. Shop was equipped with everything you could possibly need. Views of the loch were outstanding. Loch Ness shores is in foyers which is assessed by single track roads with passing places, can be quite bad with blind corners in places and steep inclines. Once your arrive you soon understand that the journey is worth it.
Staff were absolutely first class and so helpful and engaging.
Will most definitely come back next year.

We ( a group canoeing the Caledonian ) had a major incident in the water stumbled upon this gem of a site.. we made shore on there beech.. They understood our problem and bent over backwards to help, this even included helping to dry our wet clothes... Once the tents were set up we all realised what a dime off a location this is.. fantastic views, fantastic staff, one of the best shower facilities I have ever seen. .! We were advised were the local pub was... take the scenic route via the water falls - it won't disappoint.. The local pub served real home cooked food which was amazing, all the locals are friendly and happy to tell a tale or to about the area.. will I visit again..? YES.. this site has been planned into next year's kayaking.. can't wait to return.. thanks to Donald and Lyn for assisting and making our stay welcome.

This is a lovely new Caravan park on the East side of Loch Ness and the facilities are second to none and so well designed. The site owners and their staff are fantastic and even helped us solve a problem with our satellite television. The site it's self is well laid out and many of the hard standing sites have both water and electricity provided to each caravan / motorhome. As the site is very new the grass has not yet completed a cover of the ground but in a few years it will be lovely. The only thing against the site is there is nothing on the site and the nearest hotel is a good walk up a fairly steep hill. We were fortunate that we had the motorhome as I think the drive from Fort Augustus with an average sized caravan could be quite difficult but other than the drive the site is well worth a visit.

Room Tip: Well worth taking any special food that you like as the range available is extremely limited.

George, thank you for your review, we really appreciate you taking the time to leave feedback.
Many of our guests enjoy visiting the local pub in the evenings, or getting something to eat at one of the local cafes during the day. We are very much "a get away from it all site" with many campers joining us specifically for the local walks, cycling, fishing and spending time relaxing beside the loch at one of our fire pits, some of them even for wild swimming in Loch Ness! For those looking for a more we provide a great base for exploring Inverness and the Highlands beyond by bus or car. The road from Fort August is stunning but those towing a caravan often prefer the approach from Inverness.
We look forward to seeing you again.

We drove up from South Lanarkshire to have a two night stay in the wigwams. The actual place itself is sitting right on Loch Ness, amazing scenery, very peaceful. The wigwams were very comfortable and warm, bed was comfortable too. The road itself into Foyers and Whitebridge was all single lane roads with passing places, we drove up in a mini countryman and it was bad enough, god only knows how the people in motor homes and pulling caravans felt. Defo need to be a confident driver to drive to there. And also, if your driving up later in the day and your a drinker and smoker, make sure you've got your supply's!! We had to ask the woman in the local shop to open for us and she wasn't happy. The wee shop on site only has some foody things, that's all. The shower and bathroom facilities were spotless and well looked after, I'm really fussy about that, even outside sinks too with hot water. Great for washing BBQ's and dishes. Staff were really friendly. Bit too far out the way for us though, great experience but we'll probably not go back.

Jayde, thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We are so lucky to have such a fabulous location, and are glad to be able to share it with others. The approach from Fort Augustus is stunning, and many people recognise it from the film Local Hero, but our guests towing caravans often prefer the road from Inverness.
Hope you manage up again - we'd love to welcome you back.

An excellent caravan and camping site, which also offers luxury wooden wigwam cabins. We initially booked in for 1 week and extended our stay for 3 weeks. Special thanks to Donald and Lynn, Mark and Colette for being the perfect hosts, well done for running such a friendly and welcoming site. We shall certainly be making a return visit.
Everything has been well thought out. Pitches are generously spaced and flat. The toilets and showers are excellent and kept very clean, with good disabled facilities, washing up areas, and laundry room. The wigwam cabins even come with their own fire pit. The site office has a seating area, and a shop selling the basics.
Adults will appreciate the views over the loch and the lovely walks from the site, including a dog walk, and children will enjoy the wooden fort type play area.
We did not use the WI-FI service but it is available via Highland WI-FI which requires payment direct by card or PayPal.

What an absolute gem of a campsite. Group of 13 staying in tents and wigwams and made to feel very welcome. Donald (the owner) and Colette and Mark (managers) are very friendly and proud of their campsite. Exceptionally clean site especially the toilet facilities with hairs dryers that doesn't need the on button to be held and no push button showers! On site shop sells enough to keep you going from bread and milk to wood and firefighters. Strict quiet rule from 11pm which given a group size of 13 the owners/managers handled very well to ensure our group and other guests enjoyed their time. Right on a pebble beach to give a perfect setting and stunning views. You must visit. We will return.
