A vast and deep lake in the Highlands of Scotland that extends 23 mi (37 km) southwest of Inverness, Loch Ness is best known for mysterious sightings of the ever-elusive Loch Ness Monster. There are a lot of things to see and do around Loch Ness including a visit to Urquhart Castle, a ruin built sometime between the 13th and 16th centuries along the banks of the lake, or a swim in River Coiltie under the Falls of Divach. The iconic Loch Ness is a great place for camping, and you will want to do it in comfort. Read on and we will show you the top 10 glamping spots near Loch Ness, UK.
