The Site is unique. Situated in the Highlands of Scotland, on the banks of the river Nairn. Within cycling distance of the town of Nairn, or a short drive to the city of Inverness. Overlooking the rolling hills and only a few miles from spectacular beaches, lies Barns Campsite. Our touring campsite and glamping pods are dotted about this wonderful and secluded landscape surrounded by natural and arable land. The river ‘Nairn’ can be accessed from the site and in the Spring it’s banks are covered with thousands of bluebells.
It’s a place a world apart from the rush and clutter of the modern holiday experience, with an atmosphere that makes you forget the world outside, and just lounge, ramble, or potter about.
We're committed to giving you a genuinely individual service from first contact to your time staying with us and “contribute to making happy memories every day”. We are a brand-new site open since 6 April 2019.
Our nature park
Accessible through a gate from the campground, you and your four-legged friend can take a stroll through the nature park (1.8HA). Walk around the pond and sit and enjoy the views from the wooden benches. This nature park is partly accessible to people in a wheelchair or families with strollers. Dogs are welcome to walk off the lead in this nature park, but we ask the owners to look after their four-legged friends at all times. It goes without saying to please clean up after your dog.
River walks & fishing
Barns campsite will also offer a (dog)walking trail close to the banks of the river Nairn. From the premises of Kinchyle Farm, visitors of the campsite will be able to walk from the campsite via a nature trail bordering the river bank and open fields. This trail will go through strips of wild flowers that have been sown to encourage insects, birds and other wildlife. Along this path, dog poo bins will be provided and information boards explaining the local surroundings.
On the site of Barns Campsite is an ancient archaeological monument. This monument is locally known as 'Hangman's Cairn' and is an excellent example of a well-preserved Bronze Age barrow and contemporary surrounding bank. The monument comprises a sub-circular mound, measuring around 25 m in diameter and standing to a height of around 3.3 m. (ancientmonuments.uk). With the opening of the campsite this monument will be immediately accessible to all campsite visitors. Information boards will promote the wide awareness and significance of the history of this monument.
