- Quiet site close to Inverness city centre
- On the banks of the Caledonian Canal
- Excellent base for exploring the Highlands
A Scottish canalside campsite within walking distance of Inverness? How utterly excellent.
Guests also use Torvean Caravan Park for exploring the rest of the Highlands from their watery base, as it's within easy reach of the area's most topping attractions, like Loch Ness, Urquhart Castle and, less than a mile away, the famed battlefield and visitor centre of Culloden.
Torvean is a small, peaceful and family-run site, overlooking Torvean Golf Course and a short stroll from gentle ambles and Loch Nesswards cruise afternoons on the Caledonian Canal.
The owners have set the site up to make it as comfy as poss for guests, with well-kept and modern facilities including a tiled, heated and spotlessly kept toilet block with two private cubicles as well as a separate unisex unit with a toilet and shower suitable for disabled guests.
Other facilities include a launderette, a washing-up area and free wifi; the site road is tarmaced for easy vehicle manoeuvring.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

From the city centre take the A82 (Glenurquhart Road) heading to Drumnadrochit. Once you cross the Caledonian Canal swing bridge take an immediate right into the Caravan Park where a warm welcome awaits.
From Drumnadrochit (A82) as you first enter Inverness you will pass Torvean Golf Club on your right and the site is immediately left before the swing bridge over the Caledonian Canal.
You might dither as to whether you should wander/cruise the canal on your first morning here, or take the walk into Inverness: both are within easy reach.
The cruises on the Caledonian float along to Loch Ness and then to Urquhart Castle – yes, you are allowed to imagine yourself as a medieval warrior arriving at this ancient castle by boat. After Urquhart, several other castle and historic options are in the area, like Cawdor Castle in Nairnshire and a few dozen in the Highlands including Invergarry, Strome and Dunrobin.
And then to Inverness… Another castle is here – surprise – along with peaceful pursuits like the Inverness Museum, Inverness Botanical Gardens, the Ness Islands and the city's shops, festivals and cafés. Stick around in the evening for lively pubs, live music, good restaurants, and evenings at the Eden Court Theatre.
Elsewhere around this part of Scotland, Torvean Caravan Park is 30 minutes from Aviemore and the Spey Valley, an hour and a half from Ullapool and Fort William, and two hours from the Isle of Skye and John O'Groats.
