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.

Peace & Tranquility

We recently stayed here for 4 nights on our tour of Scotland. The location is simply stunning and our pitch was about 30 feet from the Lochside with wonderful views across Loch Naver and Ben Klibreck. It is the ideal location for walking etc. and spotting all sorts of local wildlife (eagles on the hillside and red deer who come down very close to the site some evenings). Paul & Linda, the wardens are extremely friendly and helpful without being obtrusive. They work tirelessly to keep the site clean and tidy and are constantly cleaning up after the sheep on site. They also have some very good suggestions of places to visit if you need any advice. This was our first trip so far north and we were initially a little concerned about the narrow road from Lairg to Altnaharra but we needn't have worried. Although it is a single track road most of the way, the land is quite open so you get to see anything coming in the opposite direction in plenty of time and there are plenty of passing places. Although there is plenty to see around the site we did venture a bit further on a couple of days and had a trip to Cape Wrath on one day and down to Lairg and Loch Shin another. All in all it was well worth the journey and is a lovely site to relax and recharge your batteries.

Wonderful week

A first trip to this site and it delivered on all counts. The beautiful setting, wildlife and extremely good wardens made this site extra special. The laid back feel and slow pace lends itself to a refreshing break. On board facilities are just fine and a swim in the loch is a lovely experience surrounded by the mountains. Enjoy.

Booked 2 nights and stayed 6!

A great site with some fab wardens Paul & Linda. We were going on a wild camping tour of the North of Scotland and wanted to stay somewhere to charge a few things, get water (note treated stream water) and get rid of waste/rubbish and chill for a couple of nights. Ended up staying 6 nights instead and didn’t bother with wild camping, as it was so good. Very much our sort of site. We started with a hook up and then moved to the “eco pitches” where we had a very peaceful/tranquil pitch with unsurpassed views. Had a ready supply of freshly baked cakes from Linda and lots of friendly banter with Paul. Hoping to be back later in the year when we have some free time.

Fantastic!!!!

My husband and I with our wee dog stayed here for 4 nights. Upon arrival Paul, the warden came to greet us and even give Bobby, our dog, treats!!!! He showed us our pitch and gave us general information about the site, he was so accommodating and really helpful and he has a lovely sense of humour. The site and our pitch were perfect....what an amazing place, so peaceful and quiet, beautiful location. The site was spotlessly clean and tidy. The wardens certainly looked after the site, going above and beyond the call of duty. We will definitely be back and for longer....cannot wait to return. Thanks Paul and Mrs Paul.

Spent 3 days on this site a few weeks ago and was amazed at how peaceful it was. The wardens were very helpful and informative. This site is a joy if you can do without television, internet and mobile phone as there is nothing. There is however a lot of wildlife with fantastic walks and cycle runs. We will definitely return for a longer stay. A true gem in the Caravan Club Network.
