Why stay here ...

Drumbhan is situated a couple of miles outside the village of Bonar Bridge. The site is on a hill which gives panoramic views to the south towards Loch Migdale, the Kyle of Sutherland and further on to Ben Wyvis. Bonar Bridge has shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants within easy reach.

There are plenty of golf courses (including Royal Dornoch) and fishing close by. The quiet country roads are excellent for bikes and there are a range of mountain bike trails at Carbisdale and Golspie. Walkers are well catered for with low level walks nearby and some challenging hills not too far away.

The area is ideal for touring the north and west coasts - John O'Groats is about 2 hours drive and the hills of the west are about the same. There are castles, beaches and distilleries a plenty to visit. Inverness and Loch Ness are about an hours drive south. You can even complete the much lauded and very scenic North Coast 500 in a series of day trips.

Drumbhan is a working croft with a flock of North Country Cheviot sheep and free range poultry - eggs and seasonal produce are normally  available as is advice on what is worth doing and seeing.

Keen eyed visitors can spot different birds including ospreys, red kites, and hen harriers plus red and roe deer and salmon leaping at nearby Shin Falls.

The site itself is part sloping with hardstanding pitches and grass elsewhere. The site is small and is reached by single track roads but the views are worth it. Electricity hook ups are available.

Outstanding views over the Dornaock Firth to the east and the Kyle of Sutherland to the west.

What a wonderful view of crofts, lochs and valley from this CL site. The site is pretty small, but very secluded though we had no trouble finding it along a single track road with passing places.. Russ the owner who lives next to the site was helpful on arrival and left us to our own devices. Lovely place to be based, we stayed for twelve nights while hubby and daughter did some of the North Coast 500, I stayed and shopped in Tain, and Dornoch and visited Dunrobin Castle just up the coast. We loved the seaside fishing village of Portmaholmack about 15 miles away, it made us want to move in to the village! We visited the Falls of Shin and saw salmon leaping and visited Lairg ..can recommend the Pier Cafe. Definitely lots to do and see, we even fitting in a trip to Orkney catching the ferry/coach at John o'Groats for the day. Can recommend

The site is well off the beaten track but this adds to the charm of the site, the family cant do enough to help you if you have a problem when i hooked up to the electric I could not get 240v power but after a couple of days faffing about we managed to restore 240v by disconnecting leisure battery as it was not in the best of health but that was after call to my caravan servicing agent. I must get back to matter in hand the review of this lovely site great area to walk your dog in the single track roads around the place. the views of the firth are spectacular from the site. I highly recommend going into the nearest town of Bonar Bridge as there are a few good places to eat and drink plus its a good place to jump off from to explore the area. I could ramble on but say come check it for yourself you wont be disappointed in the areas beauty.

What else would you want.

Wow so good we stayed longer going north and again coming back south. Wonderful owners, wonderful views and above all peace and quite. Its a working croft so you may meet the occasional sheep or even one of the collies' checking out your unit, after all it is their field....lol We were in a motor-home so didn't use the prescribed route, but had no problem, but if towing follow the signs not your GPS. Nice stroll into town so long as you remember any hill you go down has to be walked back up...... Free range eggs and some homemade produce available. Would we stay again...for sure.

Thank you for a wonderful holiday!

Drumbhan
A lovely Highland CL with breathtaking views out over Loch Migdale and the mountains with lovely quiet walks close at hand and an ideal location from which to explore this part of the Highlands. Evelyn and Russell were very kind and attentive and we felt very welcome. Thank you for a lovely holiday and we look forward very much to coming back one day soon.
