Nestled within a beautiful highland Forest, our Club campsite at Nairn is level and well sheltered and has a rural feel. You might even be lucky enough to spot a red squirrel or two.

There are well maintained facilities, including a laundry and a recreation room with table tennis, also a small site shop. The site’s delightful location offers extensive walking directly into the wood. There is also a great walk to the beach.

The attractive seaside town of Nairn has two Blue Flag beaches and a promenade with fantastic views over the Moray Firth. The town hosts a number of festivals including a Book and Arts Festival, International Jazz Festival and the Highland Feast – a food and drink festival. And in August is hosts Scotland’s only free-entry Highland Games.

Nairn is also a centre of golfing excellence with two 18-hole championship golf courses - the Nairn Golf Club and the Castle Stewart Golf Course which is a regular host of the Scotish open. Within an hour’s drive of the town you can visit Cawdor Castle, Brodie Castle, Culloden Battlefield, Fort George, Clava Stones, Loch Ness, Castle Urquhart, Culbin Forest and the new viewpoint tower, the Cairngorms National Park, Cairngorm Mountain Railway, the Strathspey Steam Railway, Ballindalloch Castle, Elgin Cathedral and the Whisky Trail.

Inverness is 15 miles from the campsite. Here you can explore its old town or enjoy walks along the Caledonian Canal and the River Ness. Or take a boat trip to see the resident bottle-nose dolphins in the Moray Firth.

This is our fourth stay this year and we wouldn't go anywhere else.

This review is for Nairn

This is our fourth stay this year and we wouldn't go anywhere else. Our dog loves the forest walks and we enjoy watching the wildlife. One of the few places where you can still see red squirrels close up. Terry and Glynis the site managers, make everyone very welcome and keep the site in lovely condition. It is a rural site which can be called 'camping in the forest' without the accompanying price tag! There are lots of days out within easy reach of the site, by car from the Cairngorm Mountains to the West Coast 500. Nairn is a lovely little coastal town only 2 miles away, where you can buy just about anything you need. For a relaxing 'get away from it all' break you would be hard pressed to find anywhere better.

Temporary facilities were in place which we weren't informed about until we arrived.

This review is for Nairn

Temporary facilities were in place which we weren't informed about until we arrived. If we had known we would have would not have booked. Looking at previous reviews the so called temporary facilities have been in place since before May 2017. The showers were cramped with no disabled facilities. Poor drainage on site, whilst we accept the weather is out of all of our control, due to the wet weather the site was very muddy, with silt and mud across the roads in the site. This proved slippery and hazardous in places. The staff did what they could but the site appeared to be in need of some investment and attention. We have visited the site before and found it to be peaceful and we gave a good review. This visit we were pitched at the bottom end of the site which is closer to the main road. Noise from the road was significant with heavy goods vehicles passing regularly and this disturbed us from 6am onwards. Their is also a railway line near by which added to the noise pollution. We did not enjoy this stay at Nairn and will not visit again as things stand.

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights during our tour around Scotland.

This review is for Nairn

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights during our tour around Scotland. On arrival we were informed of the temporary toilet and shower facilities and found that they were more than adequate and kept spotlessly clean. On 2 occasions a graffiti vandal had left their tag in the mens toilets and on both occasions these were removed by staff very quickly. The site itself having a woodland setting was very relaxing and the rabbits are almost tame giving you a glance has you pass them. Both our rescue dogs loved the dog walk with the abundance of new wild life smells. The staff were very friendly and informative and even asked if the pitch which had been chosen for us was ok. I can only confirm all the other positive reviews to be correct and can add nothing more than whats already been said. This was a change for us has we prefer the smaller CL sites so the facilities are 5 star in comparison to some toilets and showers we have used in the past. We only had 3 nights here which was not nearly long enough to see everything we wanted to see. This I'm afraid included the dolphins which unfortunately we did not get to see so another visit looks firmly on the cards for the future.
