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 review is for Nairn

Most of all we appreciated the immediate tranquility of camping in the woods...all those fir cones and leaves, twigs and lichen for all that LandArt. I was in my element! Our dog appreciated all the smells and the attention of the extremely friendly people who (as ever) one meets at a Camping and Caravanning Club Site! This site was experiencing a short term problem with their facilities but the alternative provided was toasty warm and kept scrupulously clean whilst we were there; hence the 5 star rating. The site itself is a short drive from Nairn itself, but there Are buses. The staff were very helpful and i would...without stopping to think about it...recommend this camp site to Anyone, Thank you very much indeed Nairn. You Will be seeing us again!

Our first sighting of a red squirrel was here - on the bird feeder by Reception.

This review is for Nairn

Our first sighting of a red squirrel was here - on the bird feeder by Reception. Warm, friendly welcome, and shown how to operate the manual barrier to access the site. No TV signal, but who needs it with all that surrounds you? Facilities block out of action, so lovely portacabin being used. Great walk through woodland from the site.

Lovely warm welcome to a very good site set in a pine forest.

This review is for Nairn

Lovely warm welcome to a very good site set in a pine forest. The walk from the site to a very good beach is not very far . Sitting having breakfast watching red squirrels is a pure joy . The toilet block is not what we expect from the club it may have been ok in the 1970s but not now such a let down compared with your other sites . PLEASE INVEST IN THIS SITE IT IS A WONDERFUL ASSET TO THE CLUB .

This review is for Nairn

We were made to feel very welcome upon arrival and given information about the benefits of joining the club as we were non-members over sixty when we arrived. The assistant warden was very helpful when our campervan developed a problem and gave us directions to the VW garage in Inverness. We really like the location of the site under the trees next to the forest, which is great for walking the dog. Unfortunately, the amenity block had suffered damage over the winter so a portacabin toilet block had been put in place. We really hope that the club will invest money and build a new amenity block as the site is in an ideal location for exploring the Inverness and Moray Firth area. There is also the bonus of the travelling fish and chip van which visits the site on a Tuesday evening. The food from there is delicious! The only slight drawback to the site is the noise from the nearby busy A96 during the day but this is hardly noticeable in the evenings when there is less traffic.
