Around Loch Ness and Foyers

This is night No.104/2019 living in my caravan. It's also our second night at Loch Ness Shores C&CC Site near Foyers on the banks of Loch Ness.

Last night was a very cold night. When I got up to take the dogs out at 0700, the van was covered in ice, and it was -4C. I reckon it must have got a bit lower than that. However, I slept sound and was toasty warm in the van.

After breakfast, got some warm clothes on and headed a couple of miles north, past Boleskine House, to Farigaig Forest. I've walked here many times previously, it has some great way marked trails.

A fine forest.

The path we followed, a bark topped affair, was covered in fungi.

A bit of a sweaty grunt up to the viewpoint high in the forest. Amazing views up Loch Ness.

I've taken this photo before, it's the screen saver on my iPad!

A zoomed shot of Urquhart Castle further up the north side of the Loch.

Looking across to the rocky hill of Fasnagruig. It was the location of an ancient hill fort, Dùn Deardail.

Last time I was here, at Lochan Torr an Tuill, it was surrounded by trees and even had a picnic bench, but all cleared now by the foresters.

Still very chilly as we headed back downhill.

Amazing how these trees grow amongst huge boulders.

After lunch, took the dogs for a walk across from the site, crossing the bridge over the River Foyers.

Looking back at the entrance to the site, which is still very quiet today. Maybe another 4 or 5 units.

Later in the afternoon, headed along for a walk by Foyers Pier. Absolutely still weather.
