Why stay here ...

Peaceful and intimate, Kinlochewe Club Site is set at the foot of the rugged slopes of Beinn Eighe, at the end of a beautiful drive along Glen Docherty from Achnasheen. The caravan park is a magical oasis where the world slows down to walking pace and you with it - glittering lochs, lush woodland and mountains provide a paradise for both climbers and walkers alike.

Kinlochewe Club Site also offers convenient facilities to ensure your holiday is trouble-free. Pitches are all made of sturdy stone hardstandings. There is a licensed shop, small cafe, hotel and petrol station in the local village to cater to your immediate needs. The Scottish Natural Heritage Beinn Eighe National Nature Reserve is just 0.75m away from the caravan site, giving you and your family an opportunity to spot golden eagles and deer by the beautiful Lochside at dusk. For an unforgettable drive, take the A896 down Glen Torridon and through to Applecross: the views across to Skye are truly superb.

Excellent site

Kinlochewe Caravan Club Site
Really pleased with this site. Excellent facilities and great location. Yes, the site is mostly hardcore but it is landscaped well and it makes it safe for pitching in poor weather. Check in was efficient rather than welcoming. The Stag Restaurant, 5 minutes walk from the site, is highly recommended. Only gripe: toilets are closed for cleaning between 10.30am-12noon, when most people will be leaving for long journeys. Seems very strange timing (given there are no alternative toilets). Why not 12.00noon - 1.30pm? Other than this minor quibble, great site.

Disappointing

Kinlochewe Caravan Club Site
Right on the NC500 route so good location ok for a short stop over However.... Pictures on website rather misleading as there is not a lot of greener on the site. It’s like pitching in a stone quarry. Female warden couldn’t have been more helpful but male warden must have been having a bad day! Shower block needs a major upgrade. Not up to the standard we are familiar with from the CMC

Choice for walkers

Kinlochewe Caravan Club Site
Perfect spot for walkers, access to the wonderful Torridon hills and mountains, and Inverewe Gardens. Usual spot on club facilities and the staff were extremely friendly and accommodating, no problem with the COVID alterations, very simple and not difficult to live with. Have been 4 times now, we will be back. Thanks

Very Disappointed

Kinlochewe Caravan Club Site
A great location for this site but unfortunately it is little more than a lorry park. Very little in the way of grass areas it is covered in hardcore and seems very unkempt compared to other Club sites. This is not helped by the fact that the Wardens do not man the site for sufficient time, so on arrival guests are constantly driving around the site trying to find a pitch. Without doubt the worst Caravan and Motorhome Club site I have ever stopped on.

Fantastic quiet site - other than the unnecessary COVID restrictions

Kinlochewe Caravan Club Site
We really loved the area, and the site was very peaceful, quiet and clean. the staff were VERY friendly and are had great facilities. The walks up the hill behind the site was really picturesque. The ONLY gripe we had which was shared by the many other members we spoke to in the washroom queues was the ridiculous and unnecessarily over the top COVID restrictions to the washrooms. To be fair this was a central dictate and not owing to the staff locally. Over 50 percent of the cubicles (toilet, showers and basins) were taped off. And only 3 rubber bands were issued for only three masked users at a time. This was extremely frustrating, leaving members queuing in the rain (or otherwise) even though users had migrated from a toilet to a shower. This annoyed everyone we spoke to, and was the real let down of our stay. People also forgot to move rubber bands from the hook to the bucket, meaning we were waiting for spaces to become available, even though there may have been only one person in the facilities. Come on CAMC this needs an urgent review ! Other private sites just insist on mask wearing and social distancing (which everyone respects), instead of punishing their customers.
