Hardstanding pitch

General

  • Countryside park with a pretty pond and dog walks on site
  • Nairn town and beach within 10 minutes’ drive, and Inverness in 25
  • Dedicated barbecue area on site; river wanders close by

If hotfooting over to the Highlands is a travel plan of yours in the near future, there’s a space for you at Barns Campsite on the banks of the Nairn River. Pitches at this park a 10-minute drive from Nairn’s town and beach are in a secluded landscape with hillside views; come in spring to see swathes of the peaceful area carpeted in bluebells.

Warmer weather’s your best chance of firing up the barbecue too – a dedicated area is on site if you’re keen on cooking over coals.

Waterside walks appeal? Pootle around the pond on site or roam beside the river; guests can also hike to Cawdor Castle and Gardens in an hour and a half (or simply take the car and be there in 10).

Inverness is 25 minutes from the site, a place of forts, museums and the gateway to Loch Ness (45 minutes) – drive or dawdle along the banks of the lake while trying to catch a glimpse of the fabled monster, stopping by the ruins of Castle Urquhart (55 minutes) for pics.

To get out on the water, dolphin spotting and sea fishing tours leave from Inverness through the Moray Firth, while the northern edges of the Cairngorms National Park are around 40 minutes away for terrific treks through Scottish landscapes...
