Why stay here ...

‘CEUD MILE FAILTE’ ~ This is the Gaelic for one hundred thousand welcomes, which describes the warmth of the welcome that any visitor to the Highlands of Scotland can expect, and nowhere more so than at The Grouse & Trout, Steadings Hotel near Inverness.

The Grouse & Trout CL site is located in a quiet location on the B851 road. Situated in the Strathnairn valley amidst the spectacular mountains of South Loch Ness and within easy reach of the Highland Capital Inverness. We are only 15 miles from Inverness, the starting point of the NC500 and 8.2 miles from the shores of Loch Ness. The site is the ideal base for exploring both the Highlands and local area including Gin & Whiskey distilleries.

The site is situated within the grounds of our Highland country hotel, surrounded by beautiful countryside and complimented by an abundance of wildlife. Watch the Red Kites circle above daily and catch a glimpse of the Osprey or Sea Eagle. Deer roam the hills around us and if you visit during autumn, you can hear the rutting stags. If you are very lucky you might just see one of the local hares hopping through the garden grounds.

The site contains five pitches all hard standing with water and electric hook-up points on each pitch, along with grey water disposal at the pitches. There is a separate chemical waste point. The site is adults only and well-behaved dogs are more than welcome.

The site benefits from an onsite bar and restaurant. It should be noted that the site does not have any toilet or shower facilities or TV hook-up points.

Check in is from 12 noon onwards. Latest check in is 8pm.

Very nice but…

The Steadings at The Grouse and Trout
This is a well kept site but sadly the hotel was closed while we were there. We were looking forward to eating nbyhe hotel as it was highly recommended but with it being closed it took the edge of our visit. Very nice walk to RSPB loch but not much else to do.

A lovely little site

The Steadings at The Grouse and Trout
Sadly, we could only spend one night here but how we enjoyed our stay! The site is on the side of the hotel/restaurant. It’s compact but the pitches are a good size. They are gravelled hardstanding and each pitch has EHU, water and grey waste but the piece de resistance is the restaurant. Not the cheapest place you will ever eat but the food and service was fabulous. And after your meal, sit soft in the sofas and easy chairs in the lounge. Thank you Angelique and team!

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).
