Beach caravan campsites in Loch Ness with electricity hookup and water hookup guide


The infamous deep, dark and mysterious lake needs little introduction, but there’s far more to Loch Ness than its eponymous monster. This corner of the Scottish Highlands is surrounded by dramatic scenery and is a spectacular setting for adventure sports, from canoeing and kayaking to white water rafting. Visitors can also walk or bike around the 80-mile (129-kilometre) Loch Ness 360 Trail, which loops the entire circumference of the long, narrow lake.The loch is also surrounded by historic sites of interest, including Urquhart Castle perched on its shore and the haunting Culloden Battlefield just outside Inverness.

When to go

To enjoy the best possible weather, and take advantage of long daylight hours, the best time to visit Loch Ness is from May through September. However, this is peak tourist season, especially during school summer holidays in July and August, which can make for some uncomfortably crowded experiences. Although the weather will be cooler, you can avoid the biggest crowds by visiting in April or late September/October instead. If visiting outside of peak season, check that attractions and sites are open.

Know before you go

  • Trains from Edinburgh and Glasgow reach Inverness in around 3.5 hours. From Inverness, you can reach various points around Loch Ness by local buses.  
  • Small biting midges are a common, and persistent, nuisance during the summer in the Scottish Highlands. Don’t forget to pack repellant and wear long sleeves.
  • There are small shops in Drumnadrochit and other settlements around the loch, but, for stocking up on major supplies and gear, Inverness is a better option.
