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.

Stunning views

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.

recent stay

although the campsite was very nice and had a warm welcome we booked a table in the restaurant that is where it all went wrong for us at over £30 per head for 1 course meal we thought as we had booked the table we should stay and make the most of it we had burgers and chips , starters with 3 ciders it came to over £100 for 3 of us ok if it had been edible but the burgers where dripping with grease and tasted like they had been in the freezer far to long stale almost rancid we left most of our meal uneaten and as we would be staying there felt that we couldnt complain but if it had been anywhere else i would have refused to pay we felt ill after eating it

Ok stop over with good pitch

We had an over-nighter here and ate dinner at the hotel. The pitches are pretty good but we feel that this CL is somewhat overpriced. We were able to have a meal "if we ate early so as not to disrupt the hotel guests." The meal was acceptable, but on the pricey side. Better restaurants in Inverness are only about 16 miles away. We have a lot of experience towing on single track roads but the approach from the A9 is quite difficult with poor road quality, lack of passing places and twisty road with close in forestry. The locals seem to drive like rally drivers. If you are not confident on single track roads then consider that you will have about 7.5 miles of this before you access the site. We would return as a stop-over site on our way further North.

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.
