Why stay here ...

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 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.

Beautiful setting

Altnaharra Club Campsite
Beautiful setting by the Loch, very peaceful with friendly wardens .Keith even goes around picking up the sheep poo which is above and beyond! You are shown where to pitch so don't get a choice and we ended up furthest away from the loch which was a bit annoying. Also our pitch had quite a lot of water on it and it hadn't rained for nearly 2 weeks.. Main reason for not scoring higher is there is no motorhome service point and we can't get a waste water carrier underneath so would restrict the length of stay for motorhomers.There were two water points , one you would have to have a very long hose or the other one you could drive to. However a beautiful site perfect for a few days of relaxation.

Fantastic Peaceful Site

Altnaharra Club Campsite
Keith and Sue were great. We had a lovely pitch looking out over the loch. Our first day there was a 'Jubilee Tea' so we got to meet a number of other couples. I would say it's not a great site for families due to lack of washing facilities but for us as a mature couple it was great. It was even warm enough to swim in the loch! We would like to have stayed longer but had already booked our next site.

Fantastic views, with a fabulous welcome from Keith & Sue

Altnaharra Club Campsite
We had just one night booked here. What a stunning location. Keith and Sue are fabulous. Keith kindly helped me to my pitch and was happy to help work out how we were going to get it level : we are 8 meters long, before adding the bike rack. He even went and got a bit scaffold board and cut it in two for us to use. It was so gorgeous, peaceful and Keith was out early tidying up. My husband cycled to the site and then cycled the following day up to Bettyshill. It was our favourite place on our 13 night tour of the north east coast. We were extremely lucky with the weather. We will definitely be back. Thanks Keith and Sue.

Fabulous

Altnaharra Club Campsite
Very friendly welcome from Keith and Sue, Keith greets and shows each individual the choice of pitch available, ( nice personal touch ) The weather doesn't always behave well, but the whole ambience of the site more than makes up for that. Lots of wonderful views all around the coast, the drives are long and slow but take it easy and enjoy it, get back to the site and relax. Bettyhill store and cafe serve very good food and coffee, Smoo Caves and Dunrobin Castle are really worth the visit, again, great freshly made food at Dunrobin is really good and very reasonably priced. We had two lovely weeks here, and would definitely stay again when in the Highlands.
