The site is adult only and pets are also welcome. All sites are hard standing with fresh water and drainage, plus electric hook-up and fantastic views of our rural mountainous vista and plenty of wildlife.

A First Class CL - Do Give It A Go.

The Steadings at The Grouse and Trout
We have just spent two days and nights at the Steadings At the Grouse and Trout and feel we need to share the experience. Angelique and Rob have recently (June 21) acquired the Hotel and CL site but already seem old hands at all it takes to make the venture a success. On arrival you are invited to book in at the hotel reception. We were met by Rob who efficiently processed the booking and walked us to our plot, pointing out all of the services on the way. All plots are fully serviced: Electric Hook-up, fresh water tap and Grey Water drain. Plots are well spaced on two levels all looking out across grazing pasture to the moorland and hills beyond; the site was very peaceful. On the first evening we went to the hotel bar for a drink and met Angelique. She too was very welcoming and showed a genuine interest in her clients; asking where we had been, what we planned and general chit chat. The following night we booked in for dinner, pleased to learn there is a section of the restaurant where dogs are allowed. The menu is not extensive but where practical the food is locally sourced and seasonal, which appealed to our greening agenda. The fresh food is cooked for you in the kitchen, no pre cooked and heated meals. The quality is exceptional and the meal we had was up there with the best we have ever had. Taken in the round: the friendly helpful welcome; the location; site facilities; on site restaurant this is the best CL we have stayed in.

Under new management - a warm welcome.

The Steadings at The Grouse and Trout
We had planned to stay (22/06/21) and eat in the restaurant, however, new owners have just taken over and not quite set up for that yet. Lovely clean site, beautiful surroundings, and facilities well-organised. We had a lovely warm welcome, and will definitely return to sample food when the restaurant is up and running (25/06/2021).

Good place to stay for Culloden

The Steadings at The Grouse and Trout
We stayed here for a few nights in our motorhome whilst passing through the area in September. The hardstanding pitches all have their own water tap as well as EHU, which makes a slightly higher price than some other CLs acceptable It is part of a hotel, but we did not use the hotel bar or restaurant facilities, so cannot comment on them. The site is in quiet and hilly countryside, we are climbers and did some rock climbing nearby, overlooking a loch. We also found it quite convenient for visiting the Culloden battlefield site (a short drive). All facilities were good and clean. We would stay here again if in the area.

Stunning views

The Steadings at The Grouse and Trout
we spent 4 nights at the CL, it has stunning views down the glen, and some wonderful sunsets to watch, we were welcomed in a friendly manner, and shown where everything was, given information about the bar and restaurant, if we wanted a meal we had to book the day before which we thought a little strange, but as its in the middle of nowhere, with no passing traffic, I can see the reasoning. all the pitches have there own EHU, water and gray waist, the black waist and bins were in a lovely tidy area, over all it was a lovely site. the couple of down points, access is a little tight, we only have a small campervan, and we had to shuffle a few times to get the van into the position we needed for the driveaway awning, and the bar prices are a little on the steep side, and as you only pay at the end of the night, it comes as a bit of a shock when you get the bill. so the big question, would we stay again? yes we would, it gives good access to Loch Ness and surrounding areas, and it was a pleasant, well laid out site, each pitch with its own facilities, and great view down the glen.
