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.

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.

Getting Away From it.....

Easter break included 4 nights at Alnaharra and walking / cycling in the surrounding area. Well managed site with friendly and helpful wardens. Excellent views all round and an abundance of wildlife including deer and birds of prey all visible from the comfort of the motorhome or on strolls up on to the hill at the back of the site.Would thoroughly recommend this location if you just want to "switch off" for a few days.
