Travelling around Loch Ness can be exhausting! There’s so much to see and do that if you don’t plan for a break and bite to eat, you might forget to eat at all. And nobody wants that! One of the great joys of following the Loch Ness 360° route is you get to discover hidden gems that you might otherwise miss. One of these is Camerons Tea Room in Foyers. This is a great place to stop for a rest and some food – and you might even get to see some Scottish wildlife too!
Take a break with a view
One of the best things about Scotland is the fresh taste of local and in-season produce. One of the other things about eating in Scotland is the relaxing views – and both of these combine at Camerons. Here you can sit out at the decking and enjoy a range of tasty breakfast and lunch meals. Perhaps if you’re starting your day you might want to fill up with a good old Scottish fry up, or some rather more healthy porridge. At lunch, there’s an excellent menu including soups, sandwiches and nachos. And at any time, you can settle down to a nice cup of tea and some delicious home-baked goodies. These include scones, cakes, traybakes and much more. Nobody will judge you if you want to go back for seconds…
Eating indoors is also wonderful. You can admire the specially commissioned Red Deer antler chandeliers which throw light into the room. These give you a sense of how large deer actually are. And you’ll also find cycling jerseys adorning the walls, as a thank you for all the cyclists who have passed by and enjoyed their break at Camerons.
Camerons also has a shop where you can buy a range of fresh food, paintings and prints from local artists. It’s a great place to find that unique gift you’ve been searching all over for.
Say hello to the Highland Coo!
It’s not every tearoom or cafe that welcomes regular large, hairy visitors. But at Camerons, Highland Cows often stroll down the hill for a drink at the big pond near the tearoom. This is a great chance to get up close with one of Scotland’s most beautiful and well-known animals. From behind the safety of a fence, you can take great photos with them (always a hit on Instagram!). And if you come in the summer, you might even see a calf. These are gorgeous little things that are full of curiosity and energy. So if you are wondering where to see Highland Cows in a safe and fun environment, then Camerons Tea Room is the place to visit.

While you are at this cafe by Loch Ness, make sure you have a look at the nearby Falls of Foyer. This is a beautiful waterfall that, when in spate, can often shake the ground around you. This happens often in the winter, which is a great time to visit Loch Ness. And just along the road is Boleskin Graveyard, a must-see for any fans of the Outlander series.
This is a beautiful area of the loch, and very friendly too. You’ll receive a warm welcome from Morag Cameron and her staff when you arrive, who will make sure you are seated comfortably and served quickly.
