In an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty

General

  • Scenic Highlands site by the shores of Loch Ness
  • A 25-minute drive from Urquhart Castle and 55 minutes from Inverness
  • Restaurant, shop, gift shop, watersports and archery on site

If you fancy spending some of your hols trying to spot Nessie from lakeshores, and some taking in the scenic Scottish Highlands, take a look at Loch Ness Highland Resort, a family-friendly site in the village of Fort Augustus.

Just five minutes’ walk (less than half a mile) from the shores of the famed Loch Ness, there are no prizes for guessing what the biggest draw is around these parts. The site’s also about five minutes from boat cruises on the loch, and from the Caledonian Canal (which joins the east coast at Inverness with the west coast at Fort William) and the 79-mile Great Glen Way that largely follows its route.

For those in need of rather more activity, the site team can help guests organise whitewater rafting, kayaking, gorge walking, river rafting, rock climbing, abseiling and archery, so staying busy is a cinch. The site itself also spreads across 40 acres of countryside, so kids (and excitable grownups) will have plenty of space to run about in.

All this could possibly be hungry work so it's handy that there's a bar-restaurant right on site to sort meals, and a handful of local eateries in the pretty Fort Augustus. After making sure everyone is fed, make time to peruse the gift shop, then spend the long evenings during high season keeping eyes wide open to spy out eagles, ospreys, red stags, pine martens and red squirrels.

  • Liked: 

    The staff were excellent, facilties really good. I think social distancing covid-restrictions were more relaxed (or lax) than most sites i've been to, no closing down cubicles to social distance, etc.

    Local walks were excellent, nice places to eat and see all around Loch Ness. The walk straight out the site to the right and over the road is lovely and so close!

    Disliked: 

    Two big problems for me.

    1) There was torrential rain which completely flooded my pitch for over 24 hours. You can't stave off weather like that but perhaps some type of better drainage on some of the pitches which are liable to flooding like mine?

    2) There were tons of power cuts that always affected me, potentially damaging some tech stuff. They sorted it quickly each time but blaming the people staying there wasn't right in my opinion (using too much power). If you don't have enough, figure out how to get more or just find a solution you know?

    Stunning location, Our experience from start to finish was an absolute pleasure,
    We were 2 hrs early and the manager accomodated us with ease, we couldnt believe how well equipped the site is from hook up to clean up they supply clean up stations big enough to take the 6 berth motorhomes with hoses and pits making life easier. I must mention the £20 fee honestly if they asked for double I would have happily paid. So close to all the splendour of the locks 5 mins walk with everything you need views, pubs, restaurants, petrol, supermarket, toilets, Loch Ness boat trips, An all round great experience in an naturally beautiful location.

    clean, well-run site offering different accommodations as well as tourers and tents pitches. well laid out and reasonably priced.
    staff were exceptionally helpful. we arrived a day earlier than booked but they found a pitch for us and arranged for us to stay on it for our whole stay without having to move to the pitch we had already been allocated.
    excellent location with the centre of Fort Augustus only a few minutes walk away and Fort Augustus itself ideally located for exploring the region.
    can't wait to go back and highly recommend this site.

Directions

Local attractions

Explores of Loch Ness are an absolute must on any stay here. Make immediate tracks from base to the spectacularly placed Urquhart Castle (25 minutes’ drive), then continue onwards to the Loch Ness Centre and Exhibition (30 minutes) to learn about 500 million years of the lake’s history and to find out where all those Nessie stories started.

Travel the length of Loch Ness to reach Inverness (55 minutes), where there are botanic gardens to wander, dolphin-spotting tours to take, a cathedral and castle to visit, museums and arts centres to traipse through, and plenty of shopping to be had. Just outside the city, a stop at Culloden (an hour and five minutes) comes highly recommended to learn more about the battle that ended the Jacobite uprising of the 18th century.

Heading south instead, a 50-minute drive will land guests in Fort William, the starting point of hikes up Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest mountain, as well as the home of the Ben Nevis Distillery and the West Highland Museum.

Further afield, it’s a little over an hour to the edge of Cairngorms National Park, explores of which should include stops at Dalwhinnie Distillery, the Highland Folk Museum, RZSS Highland Wildlife Park and Landmark Forest Adventure Park, among lots else.

Must see

  • Caledonian Canal Heritage Centre (0.2 miles)
  • Urquhart Castle (14.3 miles)
  • The Official Loch Ness Monster Exhibition (15.5 miles)
