Foyers (from the Scottish Gaelic, Foithir, meaning a shelving slope) is a village in the Highland local government council area of Scotland, lying on the east shore of Loch Ness. The village is situated on the B852, part of the Military Road built by General George Wade,
10 miles (16 km) northeast of Fort Augustus.
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.
