Caravan Park Details

Situated on the beach-front, with level grassland in one of the most outstanding areas of natural beauty. Free hot showers and shop on site with Calor Gas and Camping Gaz available. We are a small, family owned caravan and camping Park and take pride in our friendly style of service to our visitors.Perhaps that is why so many people come back time after time!

Gairloch attractions and directions

The area abounds with wildlife, much of which may be seen from the Park. Eider duck and Northern Divers are frequently seen in the bay and, if you are lucky, you may catch a glimpse of the occasional otter and seal. If you have good binoculars or a telescope, you may see dolphins or even a whale further offshore.

Sea fishing from the beach, rocks or from your own boat can yield good catches of mackerel, cod, pollack, saith and haddock whilst local lochs are well stocked with trout and may be fished for a modest daily fee (permits are on sale in our shop).

Water-sports such as sailing, water skiing, scuba diving and swimming are all possible either from the Park or within easy travelling distance.

For the golfer, there are courses at Gairloch and Ullapool and for those who prefer four legs to two, pony trekking is available at Flowerdale, near Gairloch.

The ruins of the Chapel of Sand are placed picturesquely by the shore and lie adjacent to the Park. This chapel is reputed to have been erected by St Columba, or some of his followers, in the eighth century.

The village of Slaggan lies in ruins at the end of a 2-mile track between Laide and Mellon Udrigle. Visit these ruins and let your imagination take you back to scenes of daily life in this remote settlement over 100 years ago. Dont miss the opportunity to visit the superb sandy beach near to the village ruins (take care if swimming here especially on an ebb tide).

Touring in some of the most beautiful scenery in Scotland is within your grasp. For the walker, the potential is unlimited and there are opportunities to add a few more Munros to your bag! Nearby are the Victoria Falls, the Ardessie Falls and the Corrieshalloch Gorge all of which can all be quite spectacular.
The Park is located in the village of Laide on the A832 main coast road from Braemore Junction to Gairloch. Approaching from the north (which is the recommended route for caravans) the Park is on the A832 about 29 miles from Braemore which is on the A835 Inverness ??? Ullapool road.

After leaving Inverness and passing through Contin and Garve, do not take the first left turn on to the A832 (signposted to Achnasheen and Gairloch) but continue for another 20 miles on the A835 to Braemore Junction. Turn left here on to the other end of the A832.

Journey times from Inverness vary but are usually one and a half to two hours.

Alternatively, approach from the south by turning left after Garve on to the A832. Pass through Achnasheen, Kinlochewe and Gairloch. This is a longer route with stretches of steep, winding, single-track road. Laide is about 15 miles north of Gairloch; the Park is on the left immediately on leaving the village.
