Gruinard Bay Caravan Park
Gruinard Bay Caravan Park is situated on a beach-front site extending to about 3.5 acres of level grassland in one of the most outstanding areas of natural beauty on Scotland's west coast. There are holiday caravans for hire and pitches for touring caravans, motor-homes and tents. Hot showers are free and there is no charge for the erection of an awning. There is a small shop on the Park and supplies of Calor Gas and Camping Gaz are available.
This is a small, family-owned caravan and camping park. We operate the Park ourselves and take pride in our friendly style of service to our visitors. Perhaps that is why so many people come back time after time!
The Park is located in the village of Laide on the A832 main coast road from Braemore Junction to Gairloch. Approaching from the north (which is the recommended route for caravans) the Park is on the A832 about 29 miles from Braemore which is on the A835 Inverness - Ullapool road.
The Park extends to some 3.5 acres (1.5ha) of level grass. Surfaced access roads within the Park lead to pitches for touring caravans and motor-homes the majority of which are on the seafront. The camping areas are separate and each camping pitch has fencing on three sides to provide more privacy and to act as a windbreak. Generally, cars may be parked adjacent to tents.
There is a small burn along two sides of the Park and this may be fished on the understanding that any trout caught are replaced in the water immediately - this is to help increase the stocks of trout and sea-trout which use the burn.
We have seven holiday caravans for hire, six of which are situated on the sea-front. These are all fully self-contained each with its own toilet and shower. They are fully equipped and all have full-sized gas cookers, water heaters, refrigerators and gas fires and there are no extra charges for gas or electricity. We do not provide televisions, but will supply an aerial if you wish to bring your own portable set; however, be prepared for a rather erratic level of reception (or even none at all). Our holiday caravans are provided with all bed linen and duvets but we do not provide towels.
We have separate toilets and showers for men and women, use of which is free for our visitors, washing-up sinks with hot water and a chemical toilet disposal point. Electric hook-up points and water taps are to be found throughout the Park and we have a number of refuse collection areas. Although there are spin dryers in each of the shower units, laundry facilities for large loads are available for which a small charge is made. Hair dryers may be borrowed free of charge from us when needed. At present, we do not have special facilities for the disabled.
