Why stay here ...

Our CL enjoys a secluded forest location close to the River Moriston. As well as being well placed for hillwalkers, the site is great for cyclists and those who love fishing. Owls, woodpeckers and pine martens nest nearby and otters can be spotted in the river. An easy 45 minutes’ drive to Inverness to the East and the Isle of Skye to the West.

Catherine looks forward to welcoming you to her CL.

Near to the Munros.

Lovely peaceful location.

We just stayed one night here. The lady was most welcoming and advised us where to connect to electricity and obtain water. We were on the last hard standing pitch, adjacent to lovely grass and trees. We take our cat with us and felt safe allowing her to roam. The site is quite close to the road but we did not notice any noise during the night. This was a stopover on our journey so can't comment on local facilities but the scenery is stunning. We would highly recommend a stopover here.

...... Disappointing

Torgoyle Lodge
If you like narrow, wooded pitches with high trees all around you, you will love it. This site has potential but feels really neglected. One of the pitches has been turned into a meadow, which is a lovely idea, but not if you wanted to put an awning up, or have a seating area as the grass and flowers are knee high. This CL site is in need of some TCL. We had not internet, no phone lines (with two different providers) and no radio, so the comment ‘TV reception is variable’ really means ‘ none’. We were only booked in for one night as a stop over.

Very poor site that offers very basic facilities and uneven hardstandings covered in road planings

Torgoyle Lodge
This site is not what we were expecting and to say it is basic is an understatement, there is no peace or tranquility and no access to hot water or toilets and showers. The reception we received was fairly cold and when I asked what facilities they had was asked; “like what” so I said toilets and showers, the lady said no just cold water, she then handed me a black bin liner and instructions for recycling and asked for £15 payment, I didn’t have enough cash as I was expecting contactless payment, we had no choice to move on and find another site. This site is extremely basic and the description makes it sound like a lovely location, which it is not. We feel that the club is not giving it’s members a fair opportunity to judge the quality of the site in advance and should probably consider whether they should include.

Ideally situated midway between the Kyle of Lochalsh and Inverness, this CL was just what we needed after several days of off-grid motorhoming on the Isle of Skye. When we rang up the owner asked us the length of our outfit, which is 7m. We obviously had no problem fitting on the site - but anything larger may struggle. Anyway, we were able to recharge our bike batteries and empty our grey/black waste and take on water. The ehu allocated to our pitch was out of order - so we had to plug in via a 3 way extension to the pitch next door. The owner told me that the electrician was to be coming out in October to repair it. As others have mentioned - there was no phone signal. We were able to pick up radio reception in the morning - we had given up on the journey there - we just couldn't pick up a decent signal. Once on the road again the reception didn't last for long. We don't have a tv in our motorhome so I can't comment on tv reception. I agree with others - the "site" is a grass strip adjacent to the cottage - and a through road runs in front of it linking the small number of houses with the main road - on saying that the main road was not overly busy at night so we had a quiet night. I doubt very much there would be enough room for an awning between each pitch - it was quite tight. We weren't affected by midges - I suppose it is coming to the end of midge season. As mentioned we just used it as a stop-over site to Inverness - I am not sure whether it is suited for a longer stay - I suppose it depends on your holiday requirements.

Poor site

Torgoyle Lodge
We booked this site as our second stop of our holiday. We should have stayed here for 3 nights. However on arrival the site was not what we expected of a caravan club clsite. The position of the site was in a layby at the side of owners house the facilities looked tired and worn the only water tap we could see was beside the Elsa point. It was all hard standing but would struggle to get 5 vans on the site and very little space for awnings. The site is on a road that takes to other houses or as a bypass for the main road which ran behind the houses. The owner was not onsite when we arrived and had difficulty gettongnhold of her. We left a voice mail when we where able to get a phone signal to say would not be staying at the site. She eventually returned our call later in the day and was not happy that we where cancelling our stay as she said how can I fill these nights you have booked. We asked about refunding our deposit which she said at first she was not willing to do as she would loose out on the 3 nights bookings. She was very rude on the phone and was swearing at me. I said I am being very polite to you so please don't swear at me. After a period of discussion and me saying I would contact the caravan club she agreed to refund our money. We certainly would not use or recommed this site to anyone.
