River and reflexology, mountains and massage, whiskey and waterfalls, red kites and fishing and a remote location with easy access to roads for urban day trips… some places really do have pretty much everything. Or almost – you won’t find a clubhouse, pizza joint or noisy entertainment at family-run Riverside Caravan Park, but if you’re camping in the Scottish Highlands we’re going to assume you’re erring on the quieter side of peaceful. And that you’re up for some stunning Scottish scenery – have a look at the site pics to see of what we speak.
Riverside is next to the River Blackwater, flowing into the River Contin, a popular pull for salmon and trout anglers from Scotland and further afield. (Fishing is available too on the Blackwater from the campsite – just be sure to catch and release.)The Munro mountains rise minutes from the park for hill walking and Munro bagging, ie, climbing all the Munro mountains in one fell swoop/tired-legged trip, and mountain bike trails start just over the road from Riverside if you prefer to go at a more breakneck speed… Also nearby are the Rogie Falls rushing downhill a couple of miles away, and we’d bank on almost every guest seeing a red kite overhead when staying at Riverside – if not, viewing points and nature trails aren’t far away at the RSPB’s Tollie Red Kites reserve.
Pitches at Riverside are for tents, tourers and motorhomes, on grass and with optional electric. To sort supplies, the well-stocked and reasonably priced village shop and post office is right at the site entrance and fresh bread and pastries are sold on site most mornings during busy seasons. A garage/petrol station and hotel with bar and restaurant are about a mile away.
Catch a bus just outside the Riverside Caravan Park entrance to Contin village and on to Inverness for exploring; if you do want to drive, Riverside Caravan Park has good access to the main roads for Inverness and Loch Ness, and is centrally based for other Scottish attractions like the malt whiskey trail, Aviemore, Ullapool and the Isle of Skye.
And you’ll probably need a rest now. Which is why we say some places really do have pretty much everything: there’s an on-site holistic therapist at Riverside offering reiki, reflexology, holistic massage, Karuna and metamorphic technique, and occasional workshops in drumming, meditation and more. It's a hard life.

It's now possible to make group bookings on Pitchup.com for up to 30 adults and 30 children.
As long as the 'one unit per pitch' rule is not highlighted on the pitch type information (please check this before completing your booking), you will be able to pitch your tents together on one booking.
If you are not satisfied with the results generated, try breaking your booking down for more options. For example, if you're a group of 10, enter five people for your initial search and book two pitches. Use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together when booking multiple pitches or accommodation units: the campsite or park will try to grant your request. Click the 'Make another booking like this' button on the confirmation page to take you back to your chosen campsite/park listing page so you can make your next booking straight away. Please note the same dates and party size will be used, so you'll need to change this if the number of people or child ages are different.
Before booking, please check the listing page for any group restrictions. These normally appear in a section titled 'Please note'. Please also check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit - especially for a large party - is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
