  • Quiet caravan park close to the A9 in scenic Glen Glass
  • Half an hour’s drive from dolphin spotting at Chanonry Point
  • Full facilities and shop; five minutes’ walk to the pub in Evanton
Located in the sleepy village of Evanton in spectacular Glen Glass, Black Rock Caravan and Camping Park is so peaceful it feels like the middle of nowhere – but actually it’s really easy to access, being under five minutes’ drive from the A9 main route between Perth and Thurso, and only half an hour from lively Inverness. There's no need to travel very far to stock up on essentials though, as the park has its own shop, open daily, and there’s a small shop in Evanton too. If you prefer not to cook every night on your holiday, the village pub (both five minutes’ walk) serves tasty dishes like burgers or fish and chips. For peaceful times outside of the site, there’s loch and river fishing nearby (you’ll need a permit), as well as many, many hiking trails in untamed Highland countryside. Loch Ness, Glen Affric and the dolphin-spotting hub at Chanonry Point are all within easy reach for more outdoor adventures. And the practicalities? The park has disabled facilities, hot showers, baby-changing amenities and a launderette to keep everyone smart and shipshape, plus ice-pack freezers to keep your foodstuffs fresh. There is also pay-as-you-go wifi on the park.

S camping pod (no pets, six person)

Liked: The uniqueness of the Pod, location of the site and the friendly and helpful staff.

Disliked: Unfortunately our shower was broken. Despite the efforts of the staff, a new component was required. We did have the use of the shower block facilities which were very clean and well maintained.

Liked: Stayed in a basic pod which was very clean and had a heater, microwave and a kettle, heater was already switched on for us which was nice. Toilets with showers were probably the nicest I've ever seen at a campsite and very clean

Local attractions

If you’re into exploring out and about on foot, start off with an easy hike to Black Rock Gorge (five minutes’ walk), or take the longer trail around Loch Glass (25 minutes’ drive) to the well-known Insta spot and solitary pink house at Culzie Lodge. The hour’s drive up to the top of Glen Affric brings rewards in the form of spectacular walking alongside lochs and rivers. You might like to spend a day exploring Loch Ness (40 minutes), perhaps the most famous section of water in Scotland. Board a cruiser in Fort Augustus (an hour and 10 minutes) to look out for the famous monster, or read up all about Nessie in the Loch Ness Centre and Exhibition in Drumnadrochit. Drop by Urquhart Castle (both 45 minutes) to see the Giant Tower, prison cells and dramatic loch views, or go wild swimming off the shingle beach at Dores (40 minutes). End the day in one of the many pubs or restaurants in buzzy Inverness (half an hour). Kids with you? Challenge them to paintball and archery at Wildwoodz Adventure Park Inverness (15 minutes), or take them dolphin spotting at Chanonry Point (half an hour) – be sure to look up tide times as the dolphins follow the tide up Cromarty Firth.
