Why stay here ...

The Old School House CL is situated within the 2 acre grounds of a beautifully restored Victorian school house situated mid-way between Tain and Invergordon. It sits in splendid isolation surrounded by fields with the forest as its backdrop. It is accessed directly from the famous A9 NC500 route and is conveniently just a few minutes from the nearest pub, supermarket and town. Two young eagles frequently drop in for a visit and deer occationally wander up to the adjacent field at night. In April/May the fields are full of baby lambs and in October/November migrating geese land on the adjacent fields. The site is a short drive from five sandy beaches and breath taking coastal and mountain scenery can be viewed within a short drive from the site.

The site is ideal for keen walkers with numerous coastal, forest, hill and nature walks close by suited to all abilities. The owners welcome well behaved dogs and have gone to great lengths to make sure that your pet has a great stay too. This includes a one acre fenced playground with toys and agility challenges as well as communal water bowls and a dog washing facilitiy.

The location of the site is ideal for exploring the Scottish Highlands and Islands as well as having numerous local attractions close by such as five castles, numerous distilleries (the famous Morangie distillery being just down the road) and miles of forest walks and tracks including bike trails. There are golf courses at Tain and Dornoch nearby. The Seaboard Penninsula starts from just across the road from the site and is a treasure trove of undiscovered historical gems, places of interest and local folklore.

Tain, just five minutes away, has much to offer the tourist, including a local events calendar, a museum and galleries and shops. It is well worth a visit and there is a good choice of places to eat out or buy a takeaway.

There are lots of amazing experiences to chose from - cruise boats at Loch Ness; a ride on the famous Steam Train at Fort William (just two hours away); the natural gorge at Evanton made famous for its inclusing in Harry Potter; the NC 500 route itself; winter sports in the Cairngorms just over an hours drive away; dog sledging; whisky tours. There is just too much to list.

The site owners are continually developing the site. Five electric and individual water access points are currently being installed - one for each guest. Toilets and hardstanding areas are planned later in the year. An honesty shop is being developed on site providing local produce and essentials for guests. A hen coup and run is nearing completion and will soon house some feathered residents to delight the guests and provide fresh eggs for sale.

The site is particularly suitable for larger vans being easily accessed thorough wide gates straight off the A9 onto a site which is completely flat.

Good site if travelling the NC500 route

The Old School House
We stayed here for one night whilst travelling in the area. Although we were not following the NC500 route, this site is directly on the A9 route. and makes for an ideal stop off. It is accessed from the main road and is subject to some traffic noise but this did not bother us at night. We received a warm welcome from friendly site owners and some initial set up problems were resolved swiftly. Each pitch has access to individual EHU and water points which is very handy. The pitches are quite flat and needed minimal levelling. We don't have a dog but if you do there is a nice exercise field for it! The chemical waste disposal and grey water disposal facilities are very good, appear newly installed and very clean. Each point has separate hose/ cleansing facility

Lovely site

The Old School House
This is a small well kept site. Lovely surroundings and friendly owners. There is traffic noise from the A9 but it drops off at night and didn't bother us during the day. Plenty to do in the area so worth staying more than 1 night.

Warm welcome at The Old School House

The Old School House
We stayed at the Old School House for one night on our way to the Orkney ferry. The owners were very friendly and welcoming and we'd recommend this CL. The site itself is lovely, plenty of space, flat pitches, and good facilities. You look out onto fields and woodland. Of particular interest to dog owners is a large fenced dog play area. The site is accessed directly from the main road, which is very convenient but means there is a bit of road noise. The pitches are far enough from the road that this didn't disturb us overnight.
