Riverside Caravan ParkFavourite
This is really a special place with our site situated next to the river Blackwater and some of the Munro mountains almost on the doorstep, with great fishing, hiking and mountain biking in close proximity. Everyone is drawn to the river here, not only to watch our local heron who loves to fish on our stretch of the river but also to enjoy paddling and even swimming. In the sky you will also spot the red kites that are a common sight in the area. You can also enjoy fishing from the campsite (please ensure you catch and release).
Our campsite is in the highland village of Contin, about 18 miles from Inverness and Loch Ness. There are regular buses to the village from Inverness and with a bus stop just outside the site for those of you that do not have a car or want to leave their car onsite.
Contin, Strathpeffer is really in the centre of the Scottish Highlands so an ideal base for exploring all that they have to offer: Loch Ness, Inverness, Glenurquhart Castle, the whisky trails, Isle of Skye and Aviemore to name but a few. This is a perfect location for hikers and will appeal to people who want to explore the munros (munro bagging).
The camping is next to the river and a really tranquil spot with opportunities to spot wildlife. The holiday park is adjacent to the local grocery shop and post office. The village also has a garage and the Coul House Hotel which offer excellent lounge bar and restaurant facilities.
In addition to that our onsite holistic therapist can also offer a range of treatments such as reflexology, holistic massage, Reiki, Karuna and metamorphic technique to name but a few.
This campsite is in new hands and is going to be a family run site. Fresh pastries and food will be available for campers to buy most mornings during busy seasons.
We are also in partnership with Trees for Life if you are looking for a holiday with a conservation theme.
