The Old School House CL is situated within the 2 acre grounds of a beautifully restored Victorian school house situated mid-way between Tain and Invergordon. It sits in splendid isolation surrounded by fields with the forest as its backdrop. It is accessed directly from the famous A9 NC500 route and is conveniently just a few minutes from the nearest pub, supermarket and town. The site is a short drive from five sandy beaches and breath taking coastal and mountain scenery can be viewed within a short drive from the site.
The site is ideal for keen walkers with numerous coastal, forest, hill and nature walks close by suited to all abilities. The site is also close to the start of two national cycle routes so ideal for enthusiastic cyclists. The owners welcome well behaved dogs and have set up a one acre fenced playground with toys and agility challenges.
The location of the site is ideal for exploring the Scottish Highlands and Islands as well as having numerous local attractions close by such as five castles, numerous distilleries (the famous Morangie distillery being just down the road) and miles of forest walks and tracks including bike trails. There are golf courses at Tain and Dornoch nearby. The Seaboard Penninsula starts from just across the road from the site and is a treasure trove of undiscovered historical gems, places of interest and local folklore.
Tain, just five minutes away, has much to offer the tourist, including a local events calendar, a museum and galleries and shops. It is well worth a visit and there is a good choice of places to eat out or buy a takeaway.
There are lots of amazing experiences to chose from - cruise boats at Loch Ness; a ride on the famous Steam Train at Fort William (just two hours away); the natural gorge at Evanton made famous for its inclusing in Harry Potter; the NC 500 route itself; winter sports in the Cairngorms just over an hours drive away; dog sledging; whisky tours. There is just too much to list.
The site has five electric and individual water access points and drive over grey waste disposal as well as grey and brown waste disposal units, rubbish and recycling bins. The site has its own dedicated WiFi. The site is particularly suitable for larger vans being easily accessed thorough wide gates straight off the A9 onto a site which is completely flat. The site is open between April and October each year and fees start at £15.00 per van. Caravan and Motorhome Club Members only please. Sorry no tents or vans without own toilet facilities.
