My partner and I went on a camping trip to Loch Ness home of the legendary Loch Ness Monster! We went in May and the weather was good with a small amount of wind which helped with horribly annoying midges!
We drove from Dunfermline a small town in Scotland to Loch Ness. We left quiet late in the day so it took us around 3 hours however we stopped at a really lovely cafe on the way called snack shack cafe and take away.
We then made our way to our camping site – Loch Ness Shores Camping and Caravanning Club Site, link below:
You can get prices on camping pitches, Caravan pitches with charger stands and cabins are available to book however they do go fast. The campsite has a restaurant, outdoor food van, bathrooms, pets welcomed and many other facilities.
Other attractions near by is the Falls of Foyer a beautiful waterfall. Urquhart Castle is another attraction I recommend visiting however this would take round about 1hr but you get the chance to enjoy the beautiful scenery on your way there.
After setting up our tent we went on a lovely walk around the site and were just amazed by the views.
Another recommendation to keep the midges away at night is having a BBQ but leaving the smoke when setting out the BBQ, also you can use Avon skin so soft the best natural way to keep the midges at bay! You can also purchase head nets which are great when walking around during the day or at night.
It does get chilly at night when camping with a tent so loads of covers and pillows are essential items however it’s very peaceful. We loved camping here so much that another trip is on the cards for next year.
