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.

Still a favourite

Altnaharra Club Campsite
We made it back to Altnaharra site after 2 years of lockdowns and what a sense of relaxation from the minute we turned in, we didn’t even have our usual near divorce tuning in the satellite! We love this site although we did notice much more movement with campervans and motor homes using it as a stopover, it was the busiest we have ever seen it which is great for the site but selfishly, I loved the days when there were 2 or 3 vans on the whole site! The site is maybe not for everyone but we are a family who have been coming to Altnaharra since it was called Grummore, many years ago! Our youngest child is now 14 but still loves the space and the freedom that is on offer. Loch Naver is stunning and we swam or paddled in it most days with the stunning snowy backdrop of Ben Klibreck. The new wardens are great. Super helpful and friendly, stopping their gardening to open the shop for my son. We were so sad to leave but have already booked for next year and can’t wait to get back!

We just returned from 3 nights at this site and wanted to thank the wardens who went out of their way to be helpful . We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the site with its magnificent views and the remote landscape in the surrounding area.

Beautiful

Altnaharra Club Campsite
What a stunning location this site is.The site it self is unusual and yes some of the pitches are uneven but if you come prepared like you should it’s not a problem.Regarding the water issue as someone who moaned about in an earlier review if they took the time to read about the site they would have known about the water and arrived with enough water without having to use the sites. The wardens were very friendly and helpful.My only disappointed was we had to leave earlier than planned because of car issues but we will certainly return. If you want peace and quiet with stunning views do yourself a favour and go.

We have just had an amazing 20 nights at Altnaharra, the scenery is just stunning, we experienced every weather possible but with the change of weather the scenery changed...absolutely loved it. Yes it is miles from anywhere. We did the NC500 from Ullapool to Golspie and lots of bits in between!! One day we travelled over 200 miles then we had two days just siting on site enjoying the sheep and deer roaming the hills. The pitches are a bit rough and uneven and obviously some pitches have better views than others but it's not something that would put us off going again. If you are there for a few days you need to think ahead about shopping and fuel, nothing is close. The Wardens Keith and Sue were cheerful and helpful always ready for a chat. We must have done 1500miles touring the sights from there but every mile was worth it, to return to the calm and quiet of that beautiful site was just incredible..
