| Inverness, Nairn, Badenoch
The village is on the B852 road, part of the Military Road built by General George Wade, ten miles northeast of Fort Augustus.
This was once a popular destination for Highland holidays, set beautifully by the shining ribbon of Loch Ness, close enough to Inverness and Fort Augustus for convenience and far enough for solitude. The far shore of the loch is dominated by the view of Mealfourvounie, standing at 2,293 feet and rising dramatically from the shoreline. Behind Foyers are the famous Falls of Foyers and soon rise the Monadhliath Mountains, forbidding in their aspect but inviting of the venturous climber.
About the village
Foyers is also the name of the river which runs nearby into the Loch, which has two waterfalls, one of 89 feet and the other 30 feet, known as the Falls of Foyers.
Foyers is the location of Boleskine House, two miles east of the main town, which was the home of author and occultist Aleister Crowley. The house was once owned by guitarist and Crowley collector Jimmy Page.
