We are opening on July 3rd 2020 for booked self contained units only and the 15th July for all other booked units.
If you or anyone you are travelling with have any COVID 19 symptoms, you must not travel to Achindarroch Touring Park and stay at home. Please remember that incidences of COVID-19 have been relatively low in the Highlands, and the communities you encounter may feel vulnerable by your presence. Where possible, bring any supplies you may require (non-perishable food, toilet paper, drink, etc) with you. This will minimise any impact on the local shops and if you do have to visit them, please consider using face coverings and sanitisers, as per Scottish Government recommendations.
Please read the summary of our Covid-19 procedure for arrival and your stay here or use the link above in the menu.
This friendly, family run site lies in a quiet, picturesque location at the foot of Glen Duror on the southern boundary of Lochaber. The park is well sheltered and is a real sun trap in the summer months. Route 78, part of the Sustrans cycle network, runs parallel to the park. It is an excellent, safe route for walking your dog, jogging and cycling and joins up with the Ballahulish and Appin routes.
We have 2 Camping Pods situated in a quiet corner of the site. These are essentially ‘wooden tents’ and are well insulated. All you need to do is bring your sleeping bags, food, tea and coffee etc. Camp beds/Blow up mattresses, chairs, plates, cutlery, mugs, stove, cooking utensils and a table are all provided. There is light and a heater in the Pods and the sockets have USB charging points.
And finally...... no wet tents to take down at the end of the trip! What more could you ask?
Our site welcomes Motor homes, Caravans, Trailer tents, Tents and even American sized RV's. Dogs are also welcome.
The shower block incorporates waterless urinals and shaver points in the Gents, hair dryer in the ladies, automatic lighting, self closing taps, central heating and insect mesh screens in the double glazed window units. We pride ourselves on the cleanliness of our facilities and they are checked numerous times throughout the day. The disabled toilet also includes baby changing facilities.
The ‘Campers’ kitchen includes sinks for food prep and dishes, washing machine and tumble dryer, fridge and freezer, kettle, microwave and USB mobile device charging points.
WiFi is available across the whole site and is accessed via a voucher on request.
The Park is licensed for 40 touring pitches (big pitch sizes), of which 37 have electrical hook-ups, and provides an ideal base for both Fort William to the north and Oban to the south. Local attractions such as the Nevis Range, Glen Coe, the Jacobite Steam Train (as seen in the Harry Potter films), the Cave of Sculls (which is the deepest cave in Scotland) and Cuil Bay are also within easy reach.
For those of you who enjoy light exercise, there are many varied walks up and around the Glen and along the cycle track, all of which are adjacent to the park.
For the more adventurous, the area, which is known as the outdoor capital of the UK, has many outdoor pursuit activities which include Walking, Climbing, Sailing, Diving, Mountain Biking and Canoeing.
We aim to provide the best in personal service and pride ourselves in the friendly atmosphere at the park. We look forward to meeting you and hope you enjoy your stay.
