The Caravan


The caravan is situated in Arrina, a tiny village comprising seven houses,
about nine miles from Shieldaig, on the road to Applecross. From the
caravan, there are uninterrupted views of Loch Torridon, a sea loch.

Views include the Torridon Hills. There is freedom to wander at will, with
hill walking or mountaineering for the fit. Brown trout fishing over hill
lochs is free, as is sea angling from the rocks. There are safe, sandy
beaches between Arrina and Applecross.

The nearest village shops and pub are at Shieldaig (9 miles) and Applecross
(16 miles) in the other direction. The Applecross Inn is highly recommended
for its award-winning seafood and cuisine. The Potting Shed is another
restaurant in Applecross that uses locally sourced fish, venison and
vegetables for its varied menu.

Don't be put off by the fact that the caravan was built in 1950. It was
built to last, and has its own distinctive and charming character. We think
it is ideal for two, although on many occasions it has housed more, as there
is sleeping accommodation for four. There is a double bed and two single
bunks, one in a separate room.


Toilet facilities are adjacent to, and for the sole use of the caravan. The toilet block consists of toilet, washbasin, shower and deep sink.

Lighting, heating and fridge are by electricity, and cooking is by gas. Blankets and pillows are provided. There are the usual cooking utensils, crockery, cutlery and a small TV. Parking is beside the caravan.

Costs: for the caravan:

£38 per night, or £240 per week. (plus electricity)
