Why stay here ...

Gently sloping to face a glorious, unspoilt view over the Nairn Valley, Culloden Moor Club Site has the asset of being sheltered on one side by an abundant belt of mature trees to afford extra privacy and wind protection. The caravan site is only about 1.5 miles from the famous Culloden Battlefield, where Bonnie Prince Charlie was defeated and Scottish history was rewritten. 

Culloden Moor Club Site is also just six miles from the pretty city of Inverness - not only does it have more than enough choice for shopping treats and places to eat or drink, it is also centrally situated for touring some of the most beautiful scenery in Scotland. Beautiful must-see locations include Loch Ness, Black Isle, Moray Coast and the Whisky Trails in the Spey Valley. The caravan park also puts you within easy reach of Glen Affric for unforgettably scenic walks - you'll see its magnificent landscapes best on foot and maybe even spot some deer. With forest walks, this site is ideally located for dog owners.

Excellent

We have used Culloden Moor on several occassions in the past and always found the wardens very helpful and friendly. The site is well positioned for visiting many of the famous tourist spots in the Highlands, including of course the fantastic Culloden Battle site, run by the Scottish National Trust. The site itself is well managed on a sloping area, so blocks and ramps are needed on most pitches. These are available at reception if you forget your own. The facilities are always kept spotless by the wardens and it is a real pity that whilst we were there some fellow club members couldn't be bothered to treat the facilities with the respect they deserve. The mess left in one of the gents was quite frankly disgusting. People just need to remember what loo brushes are there for!! The dog walking area next to the site is ok but we tended to drive the short distance to the battle site to walk our young pup, who thoroughly enjoyed all the attention he got from the many tourists visiting the site. A trip to the Black Isle should be on everybodies itineray and I can recommend the pizzas at Souters Creek, although booking is essential. The Dutch Cheese shop should also not be missed and the local Cromarty real ale is another must try. The city of Inverness is also a must and there are just too many eateries there to mention. A walk along the river Ness is another simple treat. Overall, this is a site that can't really be faulted, it is just other members who seem to think rules don't apply to them thay spoil it for the rest of us.

Handy location for highlands

We have visited the Inverness and Nairn areas for about 40 years as we have family living in the area. Weve tried a few campsites in the general area but found Culloden the easiest to find and the most handy to see a wide variety of places in the area. Although we concentrated on Nairn, Elgin and the Strathspey area with our own knowledge we can see how handy it is for Fort William, the far north (route 500 as it is now called), Ross and Cromarty (to see those Dolphins at Chanonary point) and so much more. We agree about the sloping pitches and those with the best views seemed to have the most sloping pitches and do agree that it would be wonderful if they could be made just a little more level but the pitch we were on was no worse than many other pitches on other sites. The staff were very friendly, the site had a warm atmosphere. The B road was quite busy during the day but very quiet at night. No problems with dogs noise as someone mentioned in a previous review so I guess they might have been unlucky. This was our sort of site and I am sure it will be a regular site for us when we visit family. It was good for children (ask our 6 year old granddaughter!) and for the dogs too and even for 2 grandparents.

Peace and Quiet

This is our second time visiting this site this year. The facilities are excellent and kept very clean. There is a great area in the adjoining woods for dog walking. The pitches are a challenge! Thankfully we just have a small VW Campervan so levelling isn't too much of a problem but there are very few pitches (if any) that don't require levelling ramps. We stayed on pitch 10 and it was interesting to watch the large motorhomes / caravans manoeuvre the corner without either catching the fencing or the large rock placed there! I think there needs to be some thought given to widening that area to avoid costly damage to vehicles! That aside, it's a great site if you want peace and quiet and to be woken by the farm cockerel nearby. Enjoy :-)

Uneven pitches

Nice enough site but could be great . I think we got one of the few pitches that was levelish. Most pitches were so sloping that putting anawning up would practically be impossible as the front or rear of the van would be feet in the air. Facilities are pretty good and spotlessly clean.

Good

really quiet and isolated place. excellent dog area, inside the forest. I think the only problem is the fact that every pitches is not level, especially those in the first and second part of the pitch. moreover, the maneuver spaces are very narrow. there is a single point for the exhaust for the motorhome, but I really appreciated the fish and chips that you could buy them in the field. no activity for boys. but if you want to be quiet and spend your time watching the stars here is the place for you.
