Loch Ness from Dores

Photograph of Loch Ness taken from Dores. Dores beach is located in the north-easterly end of Loch Ness, in the vicinity of the village of Dores. The beach is composed of small pebbles and is bordered by a pine forest at one end. Dores Beach, and the surrounding woodland, is a popular destination for walkers and tourists.

Dores has been host to Rock Ness, a major outdoor music festival focusing on electronic music acts.

Loch Ness is the largest body of fresh water in Great Britain at 39 km long and 132 m deep. The loch is fed by 40 rivers and streams and flows to the sea through the Caledonian Canal and the River Ness. It is on an active strike-slip fault.

In geology, strike-slip faults are caused by horizontal compression and release their energy by rock displacement in a horizontal direction.
