Why stay here ...

Nestled on the shores of Loch Naver with a direct view of Ben Klibreck, Altnaharra Club Site in Lairg is perfect for those wanting to get away from it all - the nearest shops are 20 miles away. Anglers, walkers and birdwatchers will love the unspoilt natural wonders on offer in and around the caravan park.

Families will have more than enough outdoor attractions to make their holiday at Altnaharra Club Site memorable. Fly fish for free from the shore; attempt to spot over 70 different species of birds and admire the red deer roaming in the wild. Those staying on site are now have non-motorised boating rights on Lake Naver (conditions apply), ideal for those with small rowing boats and dinghies. Walks range from leisurely ambles across gentle hills such as nearby Ben Loyal, to areas like Munros, where explorations in places like Ben Klibreck and Ben Hope make for a good challenge. Also within easy reach of the caravan site, a visit to Cape Wrath by ferry and minibus to see Scotland's most north westerly point, its spectacular lighthouse and the highest sea cliff on the British mainland at Clo Mor (900 feet) will take your breath away.

Please note: This site does not have a toilet block.

Tranquillity Base

Altnaharra Caravan Club Site
Thoroughly enjoyed the tranquillity and remoteness of this location for the two nights we stayed. Plenty of wildlife around though we missed seeing any eagles. Easy cycling to the Rosal Settlement which was interesting. Upon leaving we followed the unnumbered road to Loch Hope through desolate but stunning scenery, past hordes of deer and the Dun Dornaigil broch, to reach the A836. Fairly narrow but worth the effort.

Does exactly what it says !

Altnaharra Caravan Club Site
Read the description carefully and you wont be disappointed. We knew before we went that there were no toilet or shower facilities and we also knew that the water quality couldn't be guaranteed so we were prepared with our own supply. We met a gentlemen who only stumbled upon these facts when he arrived! The site is on a single track road but it is deceptively busy with articulated lorries, delivery vans, cyclists and, of course, cars, motorhomes and caravans. We were hoping to use our bikes but for me it was a bit too risky. However, just over the road is a good off-road walk and you can see the remains of old buildings and there are info boards to explain what used to be on the site. If you are more adventurous you can obviously walk much further! The site has the odd sheep visiting from neighbouring fields but the wardens kept the site clean and free from sheep poop so it just added to the rural feel. The shop on site was well stocked and having ice creams available was a real bonus! I've marked this down a bit on 'good for families' bearing in mind this modern world that we live in, but if your kids are into nature, birds and all things to do with the country they would have a great time.

Altnahharra - blissfull

Altnaharra Caravan Club Site
Booked 4 nights mid to end may 2021 and the site really does look like the photos and videos. It is a little above rough and ready camping with pitches tucked away into the hillside or along the driveway / entrance. Not all pitches are dry in the rain. When the rain did hit our pitch was puddles and mud - particularly under the awning of our caravan (advice here is dont bother with an awning). The booking in was straightforward but did seem to concentrate on what you shouldn't or couldn't do rather than the positives. This was backed up by the warden making a mistake and rushing down to chastise us for having the waste pipe connected without the end being in the hog. I did have to point out to him the legs where still in process of being put down and that means I ain't going inside to get the waste hog or the water pump until all is safe .... I think he got the point an made a strategic withdrawal - would have been nice if he had asked if we needed his help in any way but hey ho such is the effect of living remotely as a warden. So after a shaky start being bothered by an over zealous warden, the 4 night stay continued and we did move out of the puddle and mud to a drier pitch for the last night All in all this was an enjoyable stay and I would recommend it for those wanting to get away from it all and it really is that so be prepared and take EVERYTHING you need for the duration including bottled water - a least 5 litres a day

Fabulous site

Altnaharra Caravan Club Site
Stayed for one night at the end of April 2021 and so glad we did the site was just what we had been looking for and if we had known we would've stayed longer to totally unwind. Great welcome very informative and thorough run through of site procedure. We will be back if we can get booked in.

Perfect Peace

Altnaharra Caravan Club Site
Can't say more than that - just perfect peace and quiet yet well situated for touring some fabulous Highland and NC500 destinations. Just be brave when driving on the single-track roads. Take your time, it's the Highlands!
