General

  • Pitch up in the grounds of a country house
  • Bar and restaurant
  • Ten minutes from the local train station

It’s back to basics with a difference at Ledgowan Lodge, where guests (and four-legged companions) can pitch their tents in the grounds of a three-star country house in the Scottish Highlands. Two-legged campers can take advantage of the bar and restaurant available to frequent as well as the use of loos and showers in the adjoining bunkhouse, and there’s also a washing up area and drying room for guests’ use.

There’ll be no chance of getting cramped here either with the giant tent pitches available, while canny campers can make sure they’re still in the loop with the site’s internet access and charging facilities.

The folks at Ledgowan will even pick guests up from public transport, although as the train station at Achnasheen is only a ten-minute walk away it might be preferable to amble to the site instead and take in the local landscape...

    The hotel has a bar...

    Disliked: 

    The midge swarm was so bad we didn't stay, but the site is just a small bit of grass next to the hotel... There are far better campsites

    Location. Access to bar and restaurant.

    Disliked: 

    The one toilet is in with the only shower in the bunkhouse, definitely not adequate! On talking to staff I don't think that will change either. Big signs saying campers not allowed to use the kitchen facilities in the bunkhouse though no access to water or anywhere to dispose of dirty water provided. Shame, it's a really lovely spot.

Local attractions

As well as fishing available on site, Ledgowan is close to a range of Highland highlights including golf, horse riding, climbing and mountain biking.

The village of Achnasheen has a studio gallery and café, and can be used as a base for exploring most of the Highlands from Kinlochewe and Gairloch to the west, Lochcarron to the south-west and the glacial deltas of the Achnasheen Terraces to the south.

The site is within easy driving distance of several mountain ranges including the Torridon and Fannich ranges, and the mountain Fionn Bheinn is on the doorstep.

Cycle hire is available on site for those who prefer to explore on two wheels, or if exploring by foot there are several longish walking trails around the area. Attractions such as the Official Loch Ness Monster Exhibition and events including the Ullapool Guitar Festival are about half an hour’s drive away, or if you want to stick closer to home, there’s the option of doing what many visitors to Ledgowan do, and zipping up the hill on a quad bike...

Must see

  • The Official Loch Ness Monster Exhibition (27.8 miles)
  • Urquhart Castle (29.5 miles)
