|[Looking south along Loch Ness from Dores beach]|
Dores is your first point of contact with Loch Ness when exploring it in a clockwise direction from Inverness. There's not much to the village itself, although we can recommend the Dores Inn, with a beautiful outlook over the water especially at sunset. A key highlight for fans of the Loch Ness Monster is a camper van / kiosk on the beach belonging to Steve Feltham - a full-time Nessie hunter. The views along the loch towards Fort Augustus and the hill of Meall Fuar-mhonaidh are beautiful - a peaceful place to stand and gaze if you're there before the crowds arrive.
