Quiet location

A quiet stopover on the NC500. Good for trekking on the nearby Munroe's and walking around the loch. A couple of excellent cafes nearby and a pub which serves fine ales. Disappointed with the site on a couple of matters with our pitch flooding in August and the lights in the ladies toilets not working fully. Good drying room and small shop a nice touch.

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.

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.

Nice site

Kinlockewe is a peaceful site set in Kinlockewe village. Pitches large and are on hard standing. The amenities block is central and clean / tidy. The site managers were very pleasant and helpful.
