Why stay here ...

Our CL is located in the South Loch Ness area of the Scottish Highlands. Set at the grounds of our country house hotel in the rural Strathnairn valley and only 15 miles from the city ofInverness, the capital of Highland Scotland. 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.

Excellent for touring and visiting Loch Ness and Urquhart castle with cruises to see Nessie, Culloden battlefield and Cawdor castle, great walks and cycling plus the RSPB Loch Ruthven within walking distance. Local tourist details are always available in the hotel. Our restaurant (reservations please) and bar are available when you return from the days adventures.

The main supermarkets are in Inverness but the local shop in Farr has some provisions.

An Overnight Stop

We used the Steadings as an overnight stop on our trip up to the North Coast of Scotland. It was easy to find as was access to the site. We were greeted in an efficient manner but as we wished to pay by debit card it was pointed out to us that they had to pay charges for this and it was primarily for the use of their hotel customers. The access to the pitch was quite tight and we only have a small 2-berth caravan. The views are stunning and the facilities on the pitch are good.

A good spot which could have been even better.

Scenery around site fantastic. Pitches all hard standing with own water tap and grey waste point. Owner was ok but we had to extract local area info out of him; it was not automatically offered on arrival. Given that there was no loo on the site I think the campers could have been encouraged to use the loos in the adjacent restaurant/hotel even if access was only during agreed times. We were not encouraged to do so and the bar prices were expensive. Borderline expensive for what was on offer but great for Loch Ness and Inverness.

Great for Inverness, Loch Ness and the surrounding area

We were warmly welcomed on our arrival. The pitches are positioned so your outfit faces the beautifully views. Each pitch is serviced with a tap, grey water drain and electricity. The CL is compact and some pitches are not suitable for larger outfits such as twin axle outfits, so contact David or Mary before you book and arrive. The surrounding roads are quiet and ideal for cycling and there are a number of forest walks close by. Inverness is close by, as a number of other attractions.

great site

What lovely people the owners are, we spent 7 nights in August and we had a great time and the restaurant was fantastic what a warm welcoming place to dine and loved the conservatory could have sat there all night.

Dinner at the hotel

I am sure this is a beautiful spot to spend some time. However, despite reading many positive reviews by CL visitors about the food provided by the hotel, we were not allowed to sample it. We were informed upon arrival that we would only get a meal if two of their guests in the hotel decided not to dine In. And that we would have to wait until 5 p.m. to know whether this would be so or not. As Inverness is a 20-25 minute drive away from the campsite, we decided not to risk it and found alternative accommodation elsewhere - where there was a restaurant nearby. We do not know who the woman was who told us the bad news. She could have been the owner. But she never smiled once, or made the slightest apology. We were made to feel very unwelcome indeed. My advice to others hoping to eat here when staying at the CL is - ASK BEFORE BOOKING IF FOOD WILL BE AVAILABLE. We were most disappointed and felt that we should have been prewarned about the scarcity of meals available.
