General

  • Luxury site five miles from the outdoor activities of Fort William
  • Surrounded by spectacular scenery
  • Baths, licensed shop, adventure playground and toddlers' playground

Off to the Highlands for outdoor pursuits? Flocking to Fort William to climb Ben Nevis, pick your way up sheets of ice, have a hill walk or hurtle down a mountain on a bike? More power to your padded elbow, we say – you’ve picked quite the place.

Fort William calls itself ‘the outdoor capital of the UK’ and has all sorts of sporty options on offer, from hair-raising ice climbing and whitewater rafting to quad biking and snowboarding; if the thought of these is making you a little faint, there are plenty of placid pursuits round these here parts too.

Either way, you’ll be looking for a luxury berth to come back to, so hightail it to the centre of the Highlands and Linnhe Lochside Holidays, a four-star park five miles from Fort William. There’s stunning scenery of Loch Eil and the surrounding mountains, hedges and shrubs set around to support local wildlife, and a particularly impressive private beach with free fishing and boat launch…

The park amenities include baths for those who might have staggered down sore-muscled from Ben Nevis, a launderette, licensed shop with fishing tackle, drying room and wifi across the entire park with free access for the chalets.

Toddlers have their own playroom and there are adventure playgrounds for the bigger folk (no, not parents: you’ll be burning off your energy ice-climbing instead).

    The facilities are clean however, the 2nd day my partner went for a shower ,1st shower didn't work , so he went into the next one that was fine until he accidentally knocked the temperature gage as the cubicle are not that big , but the water was so hot that he scorched all the his chest area and upper thighs. It was 2 days later when it settled. This is a health and safety issue I'm sure

Perfect base for a holiday in the Fort William area 31/08/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom alan_w274677 Confirmed

  • Non-electric grass tent pitch (four man)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    We stayed for a week, over August Bank Holiday. Pitching out 4 man tent on one of the many smaller sections allocated to campers. The site being a mix of static caravans for hire, pitches of hard standing on type 1 gravel for caravans and campers, as well as a small selection of grassed pitches for those who like to deploy an awning. As well as a selection of small to large areas of well kept grass in amongst the trees for those who prefer canvas (or ripstop nylon as we all use these days). The site is tiered on a hillside down towards the loch. It's a large site, with the main amenities centrally located. The toilet blocks having all the facilities you would need for a site this size plus another block housing the launderette and shop. Some have said that the block gets dirty, well I suppose it does a bit in inclement weather, but they're cleaned to a high standard every day around 1, so the closer you get to that time, the dirtier it may seem. But whose dirt is it anyway, the messy people who drop litter or don't generally treat the block in the same way they might their caravan or motorhome. Even with plenty of bins, people are atrocious with their litter.
    Word of warning though, this is Scotland, so be prepared for midges, everywhere. The shop does sell a variety of natural repellents that actually work.
    Even late in the season, the shop had enough of everything. I've been to other sites where the shop has been emptied by 8am, not this one. And the staff couldn't be more helpful, just don't be afraid to ask.
    The site is a 10 minute drive from Fort William so don't expect to walk there for an evening meal. Still the perfect lochside tranquility on top of all you need in town.
    If you like your steam trains, then the Jacobite runs 2 trains twice a day right under the campsite entrance bridge on a long stretch of line. Well worth watching these powerful engines haul their coaches to and from Mallaig.
    The beach is great for a BBQ with several easy to reach access points, and the site boasts a couple of small child friendly playgrounds.
    WiFi is site wide and free, unlike many sites. Being free, it does drop out occasionally, but doesn't it everywhere.
    Ben Nevis is right there for the adventurous, it is an arduous climb and very cold and wet at the top. Not for the inexperienced, but well worth it if you get a break in the cloud for the views.
    Many waterfalls and low level walks in Glen Nevis.
    Glen Coe and KinLochLeven is a short drive away and offers many activities and stunning views.
    Loch Lomond is a mere 65 miles to the South and Loch Ness and the other Caledonian canal lochs within 50 miles North. There are some good, easy walks along the Caledonian Canal starting at Neptunes Staircase, just down the road at Banavie.
    Plenty of good restaurants in town with even better ones just outside.
    Going West, you have the Harry Potter viaduct at Glenfinnan. Spectacular feat of concrete engineering in the early pioneering days. And then onwards to Mallaig, a proper fishing port for the best fish and chips.
    Overall, I had a great week, with my two children aged 9 and 13.
    And to top it all, it was the easiest booking ever, thanks to pitchup.com

Directions


From junction 10 on the M9 motorway at Stirling, turn left onto the A84, following the signs for Callander, Crianlarich and Fort William (A85 and A82). We are about 5 miles from Fort William. To get here, continue on the A82 for about 2 miles in the direction of Inverness. At the traffic lights and mini roundabout (next to the BP garage), turn left. Follow the directions to Corpach and Mallaig on the A830. Go past Corpach village for about 1 mile until you see a big signpost and our entrance on the left-hand side.

From Fort William station you can jump into a taxi (usually about £10) or on a bus (destination Corpach). Buses run every 20 mins throughout the day and every hour or so in the evening. From Corpach bus stop we are a walk of about a mile.

There is also a local bus (Shiel Buses) which operates from Corpach Village; however it only runs three times a day, each way. It will pick up or drop off outside the park entrance.

Fort William has regular coach and rail connections from most major UK towns.

Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Activities on land, sea and in air are the order of the day in Fort William and the Highlands, with almost every outdoor adrenaline-focused activity possible catered for.

Get an overview of it all at the Nevis Range Mountain Centre, which has high wires, snow sports, the Mountain Bike World Cup each summer, and the country’s only mountain gondola for scenic sights.

More sedately, the glens around this area are prime fishing spots to land brown trout and Atlantic salmon, and there are mackerel and herring shoals off the coast. If you’re new to the art, local excursion companies provide all tackle, training and equipment.

Go out on the water less hair-raisingly than in a raft or kayak with a cruise down Loch Linnhe, on the Sound of Sleat, on the Caledonian Canal or down Loch Shiel to Acharacle. There are boat trips from Fort William pier to Seal Island and its breeding colony of grey seals, with seal spotting and birdwatching trips available from several other nearby islands including Skye, Craigleith and Colonsay.

Within an hour, beachcombers can reach the famed silver sands of Morar; look out for Nessie’s cousin Morag at nearby Loch Morar.

Several indoor activity centres and attractions are within easy reach too for rainy days: that ice-climbing can be had at The Ice Factor in Kinlochleven, or see how Highlanders used to live at the living history Highland Folk Museum at Newtonmore (there’s a West Highlands Museum in Fort William too).

The Scottish Sea Life Sanctuary at Oban and the Kincraig Wildlife Park at Kingussie are both just over an hour’s drive away, or take a stroll to the award-winning Treasures of the Earth a mile and a half away from Linnhe Lochside Holidays with its caves displaying crystals, gemstones and fossils. (Grownup concerns can be met by a tour of the Ben Nevis Distillery.)

Loch Ness, the Isle of Skye and the other Hebridean islands are all easily reachable for day trips, and Inverness is about an hour and a half’s drive away.

For golf – another Scottish essential – four golf courses are around Lochaber and Fort William, all in seriously scenic locations: Fort William, Spean Bridge, Traigh and Fort Augustus on the shore of Loch Ness.

Must see

  • Treasures of the Earth (1.3 miles)
  • West Highland Museum (2.8 miles)
  • Ben Nevis Distillery (3.4 miles)
