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.

What a gem of a site

Stayed here in July. Great site by a fresh water loch. Very peaceful with superb views. Saw wild red deer across the quiet road from the site every evening in groups of up to 20. Went out on loch in our kayak and easy paddling to explore- even came across a slow worm swimming which is a first for us. Fly fished from shore. Stewards were lovely, a friendly welcome. Little shop with a few essentials (homemade scones and cream tea lovely). Nice touch is a herb garden for campers to use, which we did. A minimum facility site but we were aware of that and with our on board facilities this was not an issue. We’ll definitely revisit.

Altnaharra heaven

Stayed here May 2018. What a fantastic place to be, no tv, no wifi, brilliant. The wardens are lovely and they stock some essentials in the reception area. Cakes and cream teas are excellent. Beautiful views from site peaceful and well worth the trek. Even had great weather during our stay which was a bonus, but would return anyway.

Beutiful peace and quiet

This site is located right on the shores of Loch Naver, twenty(ish) miles down a single track road but well worth the journey because the scenery is stunning. The site itself is very well maintained and the hosts, John and Deborah, are very friendly and helpful. There is plenty of opportunity for walking and exploring the surrounding countryside and watching the local wildlife. Wild deer graze on the nearby hillside and eagles soar above. If you're looking for peace and quiet, surrounded by beautiful scenery then this is the place to be. One thing to note though, although John and Deborah have a few basic items for sale at the site office, make sure you stock up with food and drink etc beforehand as the nearest shop is at least half an hour's drive away.

Beautiful place to stay

We stayed here in August for nearly a week. Looking out every morning to an unobstructed view of the loch and Ben Kilbrek felt amazing. A very quiet site but the wardens made us very welcome and were always willing to advise on local visits to interesting places. A trip down to the Shin Falls on their recommendation watching salmon jumping the waterfall, not something you see every day. Herds of red deer can be seen from your pitch if you keep a look out. Fly fishing from your pitch is a new one for me, for a better chance at hooking a brown trout take some waders as the loch is relatively shallow at this point. All together a spot I hope to visit again.
