Around Foyers

This is night No 3/2019 living in my caravan. It's my 3rd night at Loch Ness Shores CCC Site in Foyers, on the banks of Loch Ness.

Got up around 0615, and took the dogs for a quick walk over the river from the site. The weather was surprisingly mild, and I definitely felt a 'blast' of warm air as we made our way back to the site for breakfast and a shower.

After a read of my book about Edward I, 'A great and terrible King', we travelled 5 mins in the car to Inverfarigaig. I extended yesterdays walk with a loop over another viewpoint overlooking Loch Ness.  

A bit grey, but very mild.

After the walk, I continued up the shores of the Loch, through Dores, and into Inverness. Went to Asda for some supplies, then had a leisurely drive back to the site.

Made a couple of burgers with salad for lunch. First time I've used the Remoska for burgers. Quarter Pounders, and they were excellent!

And of course, they were prepared with this real fiery sauce!

These two were making the most of the rest.

My recently installed 'Scrabble' inspired artwork. A Xmas gift from Laura.

After lunch, I researched a walk south of the site. A fine circular walk from the site, to Upper Foyers and the Falls, and back to the site. Started of bright, but rain started, and we all got soaked!

Extended the walk a bit to take in the radio mast at the forest high point. I was hoping for a view, but it was a bit 'hemmed in'!

Got back to the van, soaked, after this 2hr walk. This is where the van really proves itself. The toilet doubles as a drying room with the hot air piped from the fire. Braw!


  1. Your van is looking good Iain. You’re obviously hooked on the caravanning life. Enjoy.
