Campsite & Tents
Camping By A Highland River
We have a wonderful location for you. Select your own pitch and make use of our modern shower and toilet block.
You are welcome to use your own BBQ or to build a campfire. For a small additional charge make use of our purpose built central covered cooking area.
Free WiFi is available in most of the camping area and you are welcome to catch your supper in the river with our free range fresh eggs as emergency back-up!
This is the perfect location to relax and rest away from the pressures of everyday life.
Just enjoy the tranquil site, the surrounding area or venture further afield. From here you can tour a vast amount of the Highlands without doubling back on yourself.
Shelter - for when the weather isnt perfect.
Here are just a selection of day tours:
- Head north to Glen Affric, then along Strathglass to Beauly. Visit the 13th Century Priory visited by Mary Queen of Scots then head across the Black Isle stopping at Fortrose Cathedral, the historic town of Cromarty, watching for dolphins as you cross the Beauly Firth en route back to Loch Ness and our base in Glen Urquhart.
- Head south to Loch Ness then west to Glen Moriston travelling through magnificent Glen Shiel to the west coast. Visit Eilean Donan castle then return via Strathcarron and Beauly.
- Head south to Loch Ness then east through Inverness calling at Culloden Battlefield, Cawdor Castle then on to the home of malt whisky in Strathspey. A connoisseur? Why not take one of the deluxe distillery tours at the Macallan or Aberlour and enjoy the frantic activity of the Cooperage.
- Head south then over the top to join the great north road. Pass along the lovely east coast and make a stop to remember at Dunrobin Castle, taking in the falconry. Continue north to John O'Groats then head west and complete the loop back via historic Dingwall.
- Take a circular tour of Loch Ness seeing Urquhart Castle, St Columba's Well, Telford's Bridge, Fort Augustus Abbey, Cumin's Seat then follow single track roads through pretty Foyers and past the spooky Boleskine of Led Zeppelin and Aleister Crowley fame. Finish your circular excursion by coming through Inverness and back along the loch side or over the top via Blackfold.
- Head south then down to Fort William on a trail of forts and castles. Turn this into a longer circular day by driving to Mallaig, taking the ferry to Armadale and returning over the Isle of Skye and back via Glen Shiel or Strathcarron.
Alternatively hire mountain bikes and explore the local area at a more sedate pace.
Your camp site is located just a few miles from the famous Loch Ness Centre and Exhibition where Nessie is used as a backdrop to understanding this great loch, its natural history, flora, fauna, extraordinary underwater waves, climate and the history of humans in the Highlands explored through sediment cores going back more than ten thousand years.
Urquhart Castle is also close and you can buy special explorer tickets which allow you to visit all manner of Historic Scotland properties during your stay. Urquhart also regularly hosts re-enactments of battles and other heritage events.
The nearest pub/Restaurant is just a few miles away with fine dining available at restaurants in Drumnadrochit and Strathglass.
