Nairn Camping and Caravanning Club Site is a stunning park situated on Scotland’s “Sunshine Coast.” We are a short distance outside the town of Nairn itself and within a short drive of the famous Highland city of Inverness, which acts as a gateway to the rest of the Highland region. The park is open from early March to early November, and welcomes pets and children onto site, with a play area, open space, and woodland sure to keep everyone in your family occupied and at one with the outdoors. We welcome motorhomes, tents, and touring caravans onto site, while we also have a number of holiday homes that are available for rent should you wish to stay with us.
Our pitches are fully-equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay, including hook-ups for electricity, water, and drainage, while there is also easy access laundry, washing up, and chemical waste disposal facilities. We also provide Wi-Fi internet access to guests so you can plan your day along the Scottish coast or keep up to date with what’s happening at home.
Although we are close to the coast, our park is well sheltered with many high trees, making a great place to stay whatever the weather. You’ll even be treated to seeing squirrels and birds that live in the woodland on a regular basis.
The beach at Nairn and this full section of coastline is often frequented by people travelling to the area to look for dolphins, who are regularly seen off the coast in the Moray Firth and further out into the North Sea.
Salmon fishing is available for those looking for a relaxing activity in the surrounding rivers, although if you want something a little more exciting you can take sea fishing trips from Nairn and other towns and villages along the coastline. Nairn itself hosts many events, and is famous for producing great tasting local produce, while the beach is also Blue Flag accredited and widely regarded as one of the finest in all of Scotland.
Great Glen Water Park is a favourite with children. Although water sports are the main attraction things like climbing and abseiling can also be enjoyed. Inverness is a great city that is your gateway to the Highlands if you want to go mountain walking or nature trekking, although there is acres of woodland and countryside surrounding the park for those who want to enjoy a gentler, less challenging terrain.

We arrived at the campsite on a very wet day, most of the site was flooded as there had been alot of rain. The warden showed us to our pitch which was one of the drier areas. The site is set in woodland so the pitches are sheltered and there are a lot of rabbits. The reception is nice and there is a lot of local information including dolphin watching which we had come for. There is also a small park for the children and a laundrette.
The negatives were, the showers and toilets although clean enough needed updating as they were in a prefabricated building and there were no separate wash cubicles. The laundrette relied on tokens purchased from reception which was only open for an hour and a half in the morning and the same in the afternoon. The site was also next to a busy road and a small industrial estate/quarry so at times there was alot of noise. Apart from this we had a lovely time as the surrounding area is beautiful with plenty of things to do and we were lucky enough to see dolphins!
