IT WAS FABULOUS

Brahan Estate
I was a little sceptical after reading some of the negative reviews on here. On arrival, a very friendly estate worker checked me in, I asked him about fresh water and waste and he told me exactly where it was and also pointed me in the direction of where the camping area was and told me to park where I wanted. We were only stopping for one night and there was only one other motorhome stopping who turned up much later. There was a long track with spaced out trees on one side and we were able to park in between these. The views across a field and mountains in the distance were stunning. I have no idea why the occasional walker or fishermen driving by would cause anyone a problem, it wasn’t a problem for us and we found it all very peaceful and relaxing. We had our bikes and went for a fabulous ride around the tracks and found a huge lake where there were a few fishermen in waders. It was a beautiful stopover and to experience staying there for £10 for one night was worth every penny to me and I would not hesitate to return or recommend it.

Difficult to rate

Brahan Estate
We checked into the office on arrival amd were directed to park under trees alongside an estate road used by fishermen, estate workers and dog walkers but quiet and peaceful in the evening and at night. The four other outfits there were well spaced out. No electric hookup but non expected but waste, disposal and water all situated in the office area rather than near the site. The site managers offered no advice or information about the estate despite the references on the site page. There is good walking in the estate woods but sadly given the size of the area there is no designated area for dogs to run off lead.

The most basic site, expensive for what is provided

Brahan Estate
The best thing about the site are the views of fields and the many walks without driving away. The facilities are basic and inconveniently located (if you can find them) and the estate workers have better things to do than be bothered with dealing with campers. The charge of £10 per night is not merited. I have paid £11-£15 per night for excellent facilities including hookup and warm welcome on this tour, this CL was the worst value.

Dissappointing - Lack of information on arrival, Waste disposal hard to find, Lack of interest when problems raised. We would not go back although che

Brahan Estate
We were on a long road tour of Scotland and chose this site near Inverness because it sounded great and our expectations were high. When we arrived Sat Nav brought us down the most direct track to the site but as there were no visible signs until you were well committed down a narrow track we had to ring the office for directions. he sight is long and thin with a track runing it's length. This track is quite well used by fishermen etc. The water tap is at one end of the site, so could be a long way if you are pitched at the far end. We could not find any foule waste disposal - we eventually tracking it down at the office several hundred yards away - too far to carry/roll a toilet waste container. As there was nowhere to dispose of grey water we had no alternative but to use the ditch adjacent - Here we found some inconsiderate person had emptied thier toilet and dumped a load of cornflakes. I totally do not condone this lazyness but was very dissappointed at the reaction of the office. I would expect them to come and sort this sort of problem - they seemed uninterested if annoyed that it had happened. None of the facilities mentioned in the listing above were mentioned when we arrived. They may not have been available because of Covid but it would have been nice to have been told. The impression was that the CL was an inconvenience and survived on the back of it's impressive name! Cheap but no so cheerfull.

Excellent "away-from-it-all " stop-over on our tour of northern Scotland. Certainly value for money. Adjacent to a beautiful old garden and some fascinating walks of the old Estate and surrounding countryside.
