Hardstanding touring pitch

General

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

If hotfooting it over to the Highlands is a travel plan of yours in the near future, there’s a splendid space for you at Barns Campsite on the banks of the River Nairn. This park is also a 10-minute drive from Nairn’s town and beach, 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, and a supermarket’s about a 10-minute drive away to pick up produce.

Waterside walks with the pooch appeal? Potter around the pond at this dog-friendly park or roam beside the river; you could also fish from the water (just make sure to pick up a permit at a local shop in Nairn first). Once you’ve had enough of angling, trot back in time by exploring the Bronze Age barrow on site, the Hangman's Cairn.

Arriving at the park by bike? There's a handy bike rack beside the common room and owner Ewan’s on hand to give top tips on biking routes around the area.

Please note

  • Liked: 

    All facilities were spotlessly clean, toilets, showers, dishes washing area and also washing machine and tumble dryer. Good walking for dog walkers and a pond on the property for doggie swimming. Feels like you are a distance from any towns etc but you are only 10 minutes in the car from Nairn. Play park for the kids. Very large hard standing pitches.

  • Electric grass tent pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Great 24/7 facilities, easy (secure) access to very well maintained pitches (electric and water)

    Very quiet and very clean site in great location for several key locations with some of the best hiking I have come across!

    Overall this was our favourite camp site of the year!

    Disliked: 

    Minor point: With over 20 pitches occupied it would be better if the second toilet and 3rd shower could be opened as there was frequently a queue for these facilities at key times (7am - 9am ;-)

Local attractions

Historical hotspots are rife in this part of Scotland – hike to Cawdor Castle and Gardens in an hour and a half, then travel to Culloden Battlefield visitor centre and interactive exhibition (15 minutes' drive) to see the setting of the famed Jacobite Rising’s last battle. The 18th-century Fort George is about the same distance for gazing at an awe-inspiring selection of arms, including muskets, pikes and ammunition pouches.

More places to poke around in the past – from museums to castles – are in Inverness (25 minutes), which is also the gateway to Loch Ness (45 minutes). Drive or dawdle along the banks while trying to catch a glimpse of the fabled monster, stopping by the ruins of Castle Urquhart (55 minutes) for pretty pics with the water in the background.

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

Head deeper into the area for the Cairngorm Reindeer Centre (an hour away), then round off the trip with a tour and tasting of some of Scotland’s finest whisky at the Knockando distillery (55 minutes).

Must see

  • Inverness Museum and Art Gallery (12.6 miles)
  • Culloden Visitor Centre (12.6 miles)
  • James Pringle Weavers of Inverness (12.6 miles)
