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.

Nice peaceful site

Kinlochewe Caravan Club Site
We stayed at Kinlochewe for a couple of nights whilst we were touring Scotland and absolutely loved it. The walks from site are fantastic and there are print outs of the different walks in the information hut which you can take away with you, which is really useful. Very friendly and helpful wardens and facilities up to the normal high standards. The site is next door to a petrol station which sells a few essentials, and has a nice little cafe. We booked a table at the hotel in the village (just a few minutes walk away) and had an absolutely amazing meal there, would definitely recommend. I really hope we get chance to go back to this site as I would like more time to do some of the walks from site and explore the area more.

Great central location to explore

Kinlochewe Caravan Club Site
Warden on site from 5 pm for new arrivals. It was easy to find a pitch as instructions were posted at reception and pitches were clearly marked and comparable. The warden was really friendly and helpful on this camc site, got a real sense of them enjoying their job and wanting to make your stay equally enjoyable, which can make a big difference to the overall experience. Great food and service at The Stag at the Kinlochewe Hotel, which is a short walk from the site and very popular. It is dog friendly and we were told to book ahead due to their licencing. There's a bus that stops outside the hotel twice a week! There is also a lovely little cafe next to the fuel station which is left out of the campsite. The pitches near the road can be noisey as it is a popular stop on the NC500 Stunning scenery at Loch Maree and lovely picnic grounds to spend the day and kayak. The road to Torridon was awesome to cycle and take in the changing scenery (lookout for deer at the car park). The toilet block was small, bit dated but functional and clean. I would definitely recommend this campsite.

Lovely site in the wilds

Kinlochewe Caravan Club Site
A great site in the wilds. Lots of walks in the hills, direct from the site. Very good information available in the "garden shed" on walks and local attractions. Easy access to Torridon and Loch Ewe by car, but lots of single track roads if you go that way! Not for Winnebago drivers. The staff were wonderful. They were even looking after the dog of an elderly gentleman who fell ill. The recovery firm will take the motorhome but not the dog! Downsides of the site were the wifi only being "hot spot", but it was pretty fast, and the lack of shower curtains which made keeping one's clothes dry in the cubicle an interesting challenge, shall we say. And, yes, it did rain quite a lot, and, yes, there were some midges but it is Wester Ross. We hope to return there before too long (as does the dog).

Memorable journeys

Kinlochewe Caravan Club Site
5 night stay in September and found the site to be a fantastic base for exploring, stunning scenery and wild road trips due to many single track roads, journey to Applecross a must if for nothing else but the thrill of the road trip, awesome and memorable. Gairloch, Torridon and Loch Maree all worth a visit Everything you need is within easy reach of the site lovely dog walks through the nature reserve fair choice of places to eat whether you want a snack or a full meal. Peaceful and tranquil site wardens welcoming but unobtrusive liked the checking in system only downside was the midges in the evening and poor TV reception but the whole experience far outweighed the negatives definitely recommend a visit.

Excellent location, great walking

Kinlochewe Caravan Club Site
We enjoyed this site, well located on the NC500 trail, the Torridon hills and Applecross. Clean with excellent facilities and the first time we have seen a drying room! Great idea, particularly for those that are camping in tents. The reception was shut between 1-5pm but was not an issue at all, as there are clear instructions on the door e.g. drop in your membership card and please come back after 5pm - easy peasy! We didn't get to the Beinn Eighe visitor centre as we only had one night, but had heard it was good. The cafe in the petrol station next door did an excellent breakfast and the fuel prices were reasonable. Around the corner was the Gorse Bush Cafe where we had a great beef Sunday dinner, but all the food looked fantastic. We ventured to the Bistro Bo & Muc at The Torridon and had an amazing meal there and a lovely walk around their kitchen garden. All in all, if you are in this neck of the woods, then this site is a really good option. Next time I would not choose a pitch the hugged the tree line, as this is the only place that there were midges. Pitches more central, away from the trees were totally fine.
