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.

Highlands in October

Unfortunately we had horrendous weather and it rained nearly the whole 3 nights we were there! The site is 90% gravel but ideal for those weather conditions as we are in a 6m Motorhome and always like to have hardstanding! The facilities were clean and modern with an excellent drying room (would be great if all sites had one). The wardens had lots of information of surrounding walks which I think we'll be returning to follow at an earlier time in the year. There is a small petrol station and another small shop for basic stuff.

What am I missing?

I simply don’t recognise this site from the description or reviews. It is on a junction of 2 major roads next to houses and resembles are car park. Warden friendly and pleasant but knew little about the local area and seemed surprised I thought there might be deer locally and didn’t know where we might see them. The facilities are basic and the dishwashing area closed with no explanation. I cannot imagine how the photographs on this listing were achieved... .... unrecognisable. Gravel all over the site with no grass between pitches. Hideous. By far the worst CMC site we have stayed on. Almost cried after long drive to get her. 1 night only then off.

Lack of WiFi

We have been to Kinlochewe three times this year, coming from Inverness it’s no bother. The last visit we were joined by family and this was where the WiFi problem came up. We usually can live without WiFi all though it can be a pain. The only hot spot for WiFi on site is at the drying area, you have nothing anywhere else on site. We couldn’t sit out because of the midges, nothing anyone can do about that, so some of the younger members of the family were stuck in the caravans. After a day or two the lack of WiFi started to become a problem and the “ Im bored “ complaints started. This is lovely site the wardens could not be more helpful but I think in this day and age contact with the rest of the world should be possible.
