Culloden Moor Caravan Club Site, Newlands, Culloden Moor, Inverness, IV2 5EF, 01463790625
To Find Site:- Exit A9 onto the B9177 and follow signs for Culloden Moor and Croy. Once past the Culloden Moor visitors centre the site is on the left about a mile further on.
This campsite, which has nice views of the surrounding hills, is about a mile from the site of the famous battle of Culloden. Non-members are welcome and there is an area set aside for tent campers. The site slopes down towards the road meaning that levelling blocks for corner steadies are usually needed. The site has 97 pitches most of which are on hardstandings. There is one central toilet block which whilst kept perfectly clean and serviceable is of the older variety. There are a couple of service points around the site but there are some pitches which are a long way from water/waste/toilet disposal. For children there is a nice play area in one corner of the site. Electric bollards have a TV hook-up and Reception sell co-ax cables as well as a few other essentials. Mobile phone signals on this site are poor to non-existent, certainly no signal for Virgin Mobile although I did see some people wandering around with a phone to their ear. I did manage to get a weak GPRS signal on my Vodafone dongle. There is a pay phone at Reception but this is expensive to use. Date of visit early September 2011.
There are many opportunities for excursions from this site. The nearest from the site is the Culloden Moor Battlefield which is about a 35 minute walk from the site with a footpath all the way. The National Trust for Scotland have a large visitor centre with lots of information. The Black Isle and Loch Ness are not too far. For shopping there are a couple of supermarkets in Inverness, about 5 miles from the campsite, the nearest being Tesco which also sells fuel.
