Dores Visitor Information Guide
Dores Highland village offering plenty of outdoor activities making great use of Lochness and only 8 miles south west of the city of Inverness offering a range of accommodation from Bed and Breakfast to hotels to suite every budget, this small village of Dores has access to the waters edge and beach offering some of the magnificent views from this side of the Loch that changes with every season.
On a calm day, strange mirages can be seen on the distant horizon, ( could this be Nessy ) and when the prevailing wind's blow they whip the whole Loch into a a frenzy of waves.
The loch heads towards Fort Augustus, with the steep sides of the Great Glen fault rising over 1000 feet on each side. The road going south from the village of Dores towards Inverness has attractive views of the water and trees, while another road climbs steeply out of the village of Dores to a ridge above Loch Ness with impressive views over the water to the castle.
