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.

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.

Ticks all my boxes

This site has it all. It's located in stunning scenery with proper and immediate mountain views from each part of it. It is itself in an almost sylvan setting with mixed evergreen and deciduous trees throughout. The facilities are good, modern and well maintained: management are friendly and helpful. The immediate location is superb - handy for the two local shops which between them carry a decent selection of stuff and considering the relative remoteness of the area,it's all reasonably priced. The local hotel [circa 250 yards away] has a brilliant selection of real ales [5 on last time I was there] and an eye-watering range of malt whiskies. Their food is good, based on local seasonal produce and again the prices are pretty user friendly. There is a small cafe even nearer the site [circa150 yards on the Torridon road] This no greasy spoon tourist trap but provides interesting and well prepared food at reasonable price. Handy for touring to Gairloch, Torridon, Applecross, Lochcarron, Inverewe and little more than an hour from Kessock bridge. Its on the NC 500 and the road occasionally attracts lunatic bikers who go faster than is wise for the roads and make more noise than they should but they tend to be an infrequent irritant. TV and wi-fi are limited TV needs a cable hook up and even then gives only BBC1+2, STV, Ch 4 and Sky News.I count that as a blessing but others may not.

Excellent Site.

We have just returned from a five night stay. Excellent walking and cycling opportunities in the local area. The village has a garage, two stores, a pub and two cafe's and so there was nothing that we needed that we could not find in Kinlochewe. The site is brilliantly well maintained and the facilities are spotless. I particularly appreciated the drying room and the mountain weather forecast that is posted in the information hut each day. There are of course midges at this time of year in Scotland but the site reception stocked lots os options for managing them and Susan the warden is very informative about midge management! The site is very quiet, particularly in the far section away from the road where the best views are also to be found. A welcoming and peaceful site that is perfect for an active holiday.

Third Vist

Third visit to this site over the last few years. This year blessed with cool but good weather, lovely to wake up to sunshine with snow on the tops. Clean tidy site with good wardens. Do wish the club would do away with the key pad access to showers, they are in a dark area between two doors, the numbers you can't see as the blacking on them had worn off, I could just about see them with my specs on, but must be difficult for some! Can recommend "The Gorse Bush" formerly the Whistle Stop Cafe. The food is excellent open 10-6 Wed to Sunday. Sunday lunch is amazing but need to book. Rupert the owner chef is much travelled well trained chef and deserves to do well in his new venture. The garage is also a cafe and sells supplies. Lovely area plenty to see.
