A long, long way up north, somewhere in the far reaches of Scotland, is home to the most famous lake in the World, Loch Ness.

When we got there, the journey was totally worth it. We came across a campsite called Loch Ness Shores that was literally right on the shore of the loch with easy access to the entire south side of it. There were several spots for a campfire prebuilt right along the shoreline of the lake and it was a stunning experience to sit there at dusk with a few marshmallows and just watch the sun go down and take in everything that nature had to offer.

We had hoped to rent a boat and spend a couple of hours in the water but due to the choppiness this wasn’t an option. We will certainly be doing this again! It is just a shame that we didn’t get the weather. Inverness is about a 30 minute drive from where we stayed where we found a supermarket and shops to buy a bed as one of ours had deflated! The food we ate was locally sourced and absolutely delicious.

On our final day we paid a visit to Fort Augustus on the western tip of the lake. This village is supposedly home to the best fish and chips in the world so of course we had to try it out! The trip this far north is worth it even if you just see the sights from the car. These photos absolutely do not do it justice!
