Pets

We welcome pets and dogs at Loch Ness Shores, but they must be kept on a short lead under control while on the campsite. There is a dog walk adjacent to the site and we have walking maps available in the reception for those who want to explore the area further. Please keep the walks clean by using doggie bags at all times, these can be disposed of in any general waste bin.

Our designated dog walk must be one of the most beautiful in the world!
