General

  • Carefully crafted camping pods 12 miles from Inverness
  • In a forest above Loch Ness
  • Heating, electric, mattresses and insulation in all pods

A little piece of pod heaven in the Scottish Highlands: say aye. Camping Pod Heaven is in the village of Abriachan, 12 miles from Inverness, above Loch Ness and with plenty of local walking trails to wander from one's poddy base. And its scenery and setting are pretty heavenly too: have you seen the site pics...?

All the pods here are big enough to comfortably fit four adults and come with mattresses, an electric socket, heating and a private entrance. Wifi is available on site.

Around the site, podders will find barbecues, covered picnic tables and seating area, and a firepit with more seating. The bathroom is shared and is a short distance from the pods.

    • The pod was lovely and clean.
    • FREE WIFI ON SITE!!!
    • Plug in radiator, a little table and plenty those thin camping airbeds (we stacked them) provided which is nice. Saves a lot of effort putting up airbeds.
    • The toilets/showers were one of the best I have seen on a site.
    • Community fire pit and cooking/seating areas is lovely and give you the chance to socialise with other campers.
    • Beautiful location, really was just a stunning place to be.
    • Owners grandson made friends with my son and they played together for the entirety of our stay. He was lovely and it just goes to show how family orientated the site is.

    Disliked: 

    • Camping pod is incredibly dark during the day(only has a small window at the back), which wouldn't really be a problem except that the pod has no fitted lighting meaning you use the provided floor lamp. This then obviously take some of only two plug sockets and when you have a fridge to plug in you have then used all your sockets so it means you cant charge your phone or anything.
    • No parking near our pod, yet others did. Dont know if they had a different style of pod and had paid more for theirs? Would have happily paid more to have the car next to the pod because it was a nightmare keeping two children entertained and walking back and forth to the car. I have done this on many sites before however they have provided trailers or wheelbarrows to assist the walk to the pods with all our bits.

    Disliked: 

    Signage to find the site. Strongly recommend highways Agency brown sign on the main road at least 100 yards from site in order to find the site. Current signage is exceptionally poor and is off a remote B Road with no other signage for anything.
