Nestled on the shores of Loch Naver with a direct view of Ben Klibreck, Altnaharra Club Campsite 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 Campsite 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 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. Altnaharra is served by a private water supply and as such we strongly advise all site guests to boil any water drawn from site before use and to bring an adequate supply of bottled or tanked water. Guests should refrain from filling caravan / motorhome tanks at the site for the time being.

So peaceful

Altnaharra Club Campsite
This was an amazing experience. We had pitch 10, which was relatively secluded and right on the lochside. The views are incredible. Wardens were superb - they were relief wardens during our stay, but really went out of their way to help. Even though there is no toilet block, still giving it five as the Chemical Toilet was immaculate.

Beautiful site

Altnaharra Club Campsite
I can only agree with all the reviews already posted - a fantastic site location. 3* for facilities as there are none! 3* for families unless children like walking or kayaking. All the rest 5*. We saw deer on the hilltop above the site in the evening. I also saw a very large herd of deer (40+) when out on my bike a few miles away. We visited in late April when the local pub / inn (2 miles away) was closed so cannot comment. Also, no midges in April, which is one of the reasons we went then. This site is very remote and access is by single track road, so be warned if you are towing! We were in a motorhome so no problem, especially as the roads are very quite in April outside of the school holidays. The whole expereince was enhanced by having warm sunshine and completely blue skies!

An excellent site.

Altnaharra Club Campsite
We arrived to be greeted by site warden Keith, who was welcoming and efficient. Keith and his wife Sue were excellent throughout our stay and were informative, knowledgable and friendly. The location is stunning, walks and a loch for the dogs to swim. The deer eluded us and not an eagle or otter in sight (apparently all 3 are seen in the vicinity), apart from that perfect stay at a tranquil location.

Probably the most remote site in the UK

Altnaharra Club Campsite
Altnahhara is one of a kind, probably one of the most remote sites in the UK if not Europe! I've rated it 5/5 except for facilities because basically there aren't any! There are Chemical toilet and rubbish facilities which are all very clean and tidy but no toilet/shower facilities so unless you have them with you its not necessarily the site for you! The water supply is filtered from the local burn which I'm sure is safe but I expect as a backside covering measure there is a sign cautioning the necessity to boil the water. Please don't think I'm being critical of this site because I am absolutely not as we visited it twice on the same trip in Scotland and will probably go back again in a few weeks time but it is not for those who need that facility. The view from the site across the loch is beautiful and as a previous reviewer has said all the pitches have a view, but yes pitch 5 is the one to have if it's available. Baring in mind that A roads in NE Sutherland can be single track with passing places the journey to Altnaharra is quite a unique experience for driving in the UK, the remoteness and awesome vistas across the 'Flows' (pronounced as in cows) is quite memorable as you come up from Lairg past the Crask Inn. So if you want to experience Altnaharra make sure you are well provisioned for your stay and enjoy the views and tranquility. I notice that another reviewer had their BEST meal at the Altnaharra Hotel. Yes we too had a meal there and I can also say it was one of the best, not the cheapest by any means but straight forward beautifully prepared dishes (Scallops & Venison). One final point, although I had a "proper" connecting join in my cable, Keith pointed out it was actually agin the rules so thank you Keith (the warden) for the loan of your cable!
