Camping area

General

  • Small family-run touring park half a mile from Drumnadrochit
  • On-site riding centre for lessons and countryside hacks
  • 15 minutes' walk from the western shore of Loch Ness

It's a small and peaceful place, but you'll find simply stacks to do in the Scottish countryside on and around Loch Ness Bay Camping.

The site is only a 15-minute walk through the fields from the western shore of Loch Ness (and famed Urquhart Castle) from this Highlands setting too; a nature reserve is within 10 miles and the lively city of Inverness within 15. Fishing, cruises, golf, swimming, curling, and hikes on the Great Glen Way are all reachable within a short drive.

Loch Ness Bay Camping is half a mile from the shops, restaurants and bars of the small village of Drumnadrochit. Its amenities include showers and toilets, a launderette and chemical disposal. The site has free wifi.

Please note

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

    Distance to Loch Ness, local shops, pups and attractions, the pitches were clean and well sized. Although limited toilets they were clean and well maintained!

    Disliked: 

    Limited amount of toilets and showers was ok for us as wasn’t full.

From the manager...

Thank you for the kind words. Only part a proportion of our facilities were open when you were here. We have a lot more showers and toilets which are opened when we get busier.
