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.

Not the peaceful site I was led to expect

Altnaharra Caravan Club Site

If this site is full and you're under 7 metres long you're likely to be allocated one of the worst pitches I've seen in 5 years of using CAMC sites. The pitch was on uneven elevated ground next to a road used by logging trucks and other trade vehicles from 6 am through to 6 pm. The road in general was fast and well used considering its remote location. We had difficulty working out how to park level on pitch 17 and the wardens were not helpful to the point of rudeness and I have raised a complaint directly with the club. There were plenty of parkups in the immediate area around the site that looked flatter, safer and quieter if you're not after electric hookup. The water on site is not advisable to drink neither would I personally want to run it through my Motorhome.

Comment from the Club:

Thank you for your review and we are sorry that you did not enjoy your stay with us. The Site Staff have been in touch as they work incredibly hard to ensure our members have the best possible time on their Club campsite. On arrival there was a choice of 2 pitches and the site staff offered to assist you with pitching. Pitch 17 has been used all season and the site staff were not aware of any complaints prior to your stay of this pitch so they are sorry you were not happy with it. Please be assured our site staff always do their utmost to assist and help whenever they can.

A Lovely Spot

Altnaharra Caravan Club Site
We have stayed several times at the Altnaharra Club site and love the tranquility and the surrounding scenery. The location by the shore of Loch Naver is perfect and having visited at different times of the season the views, landscape and wildlife can be varied. Access to the stunning North Coast is a relatively short drive away and recommended. And lets not forget the site managers who are extremely welcoming and keep the site in tip-top condition.

Remote & wild Scotland

Altnaharra Caravan Club Site
Lovely remote site by the shores of Loch Naver. Wardens friendly & helpful. Make sure you bring chocks if you're in a motorhome. Easy to launch canoes or swim from the site. Some good hillwalks a short drive away. No wifi onsite, we knew this before we travelled, but can get 4g in the village of Altnaharra (3 miles).

Soooo peaceful

Altnaharra Caravan Club Site
We stayed for just the one night during a trip around Scotland, but we will be back. What a little gem this is. If you like peaceful setting surrounded by nature and water you must give this a go. Despite no toilet or shower facilities, this is a true gem of a site. We were lucky enough to have red deer, whilst out walking. It is off the beaten track but if you like a drive then this is also a great reason to visit.
