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).

Fantastic site with all the facilities for a great price 04/04/2018

  • Electric hardstanding touring pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Toilets and showers were plentiful and always clean, onsite facilities were great - two parks, beaches, shop and laundry.

    Close to Fort William for shopping or a day out. We walked to Loch Eil station and got the train in to FW for the day.

    The steam train passes right by the site so you can get to see it on its way past.

    Disliked: 

    The walk along the road to the train station is absolutely treacherous. We were nearly knocked down twice. Don't think I'd do it again. Not the site's fault.

  • Liked: 

    The views are outstanding, location is a great base for exploring the Nevis range and Loch Ailort is a stunning place to spend time. We had problems with our hook up while we were there (problem with the Motorhome) and the staff were very helpful and friendly.

    Disliked: 

    The playground could be better and unless you shower before anyone else the shower block gets very dirty through the day (muddy and full of hair). Needs cleaning more regularly.

    Lovely spot right next to the loch. Site was clean and tidy and had everything you need. Receptionist very friendly when checking in. Close to all amenities and sightseeing hotspots.

    Disliked: 

    The shop wasn't open because it's out of season. Maybe if it just opened for a few hours a day during non seasonal times? That would be handy. Wi-Fi did keep cutting out but I put that down to the weather.

Can not fault the service we received from the park ... 03/01/2018

    Can not fault the service we received from the park staff. They did everything in their power (pardon the pun) to get us reconnected to electricity supply after it had gone out at 11.45pm on Hogmanay. The electricity company were out onsite on New Year’s Day to get the situation in the park resolved. Staff were all excellent throughout this process

    Definite 5* for Loch Linnhe customer service

    Disliked: 

    Due to the issues with electricity dipping the previous nights before power went completely the staff were trying to locate the issue and this resulted in the toilet/shower block being particularly cold as water heaters were turned off. But, at the end of the day, I chose to go camping in Dec/Jan and fully expect the weather to be cold

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)
