- Remote Highlands site next to village shops and restaurants
- Spectacular scenery with views towards Skye and the Torridon Hills
- Spotless modern amenities including a heated shower block
Most peeps have a certain fondness for these types of sites: ones which you can use to escape from it all, yet which have most of everything you need right on the doorstep. Because you wouldn’t want to spend a get-away-from-it all holiday without easy access to fish and chips, local restaurants and a coffee shop or two to while away the hours in…
Gairloch Caravan and Camping Site in the Scottish Highlands is remote enough that you can pretend work and cities are a thing of the past, but it’s right next to the village of Strath with plenty of shops, hotels and restaurants – and that fish and chip shop. And as it’s a Highlands site, stunning scenery comes with the pitch price: the park is set above the coastal road with lovely loch views towards Skye and the Torridon Hills.
Wardens Colin and Marion will go out of their way to give guests a Highlands welcome, whether that’s welcoming the family friend (dogs stay for free here) helping you when you arrive or making sure everything is spotless; the park has up to date amenities too, including a heated shower block, coin laundry, chemical disposal point, dishwashing area and tourist information. Wifi is available for a reasonable additional price.

There are heaps of options in and around Gairloch for watery activities: wander around the cove to Gairloch Harbour to book a pleasure cruise on a glass-bottomed boat, have a sailing lesson, take a wildlife cruise to spot whales, porpoises, seals and dolphins, or take the tackle to nearby Fionn Loch or Loch Rollie to land some local brown trout (you’ll need a permit to fish in the area, which you can pick up at the Gairloch Garage). Sea fishing is available too from boats hired at the harbour.
Staying on land, Gairloch and the Highlands are where boots are made for walking: there are all-abilities routes at the Beinn Eighe Nature Reserve and a waymarked walk through the Flowerdale Glen to Flowerdale Falls, with more strenuous leg-stretching available on walks designed to last from a couple of hours to a full day.
Wester Ross also has acres of crags to clamber up, with an indoor climbing wall (and lessons) at the Gairloch Leisure Centre.
If the very idea of all-day walks or climbing crags is making you feel a bit faint, there’s a pony trekking centre at Gairloch too, pitch and putt in Strath, and a beachside golf club open seven days a week in season. Poolewe, six miles north of Gairloch, has an indoor swimming pool.
For rainy days, the Gairloch Heritage Museum has regular events and exhibitions, and there are sub-tropical gardens at Inverewe and a visitor centre at Rua Reidh Lighthouse; the Loch Ewe area is also the place to go for traditional music, with a ceilidh held weekly during peak season.
The town of Ullapool has regular music festivals, a theatre, arts centre and award-winning museum, or if you want to see the bright lights head further afield for a day trip and evening to the Highlands capital Inverness, the location of Macbeth’s castle.
