Help for Gypsies and Travellers

Everyone has a right to be treated fairly and have access to our services. If you have been subject to any form of hate incident report it on Hate Free Highland.

Site Accommodation

We provide 4 permanent sites for use by Gypsies and Travellers:

  • Longman Park, Inverness - 11 pitches
  • Laggan Park, Newtonmore, Badenoch and Strathspey - 6 pitches - (contact David Secker on 07799658358)
  • Spean Park, Lochaber - 9 pitches
  • Kentallen Park, Lochaber - 6 pitches (Contact John Ross on 07901516054)

Each site has individual pitches each with a utility unit, a hook up facility for electricity and hard-standing for parking caravans and motor vehicles.

You can rent a pitch on a long term basis or stay for only a few weeks. You may also be able to claim benefits to help pay for the rent of your pitch.

For information or to apply for a pitch, please speak to the on-site staff above.


We respect Gypsy and Travellers right to a travelling lifestyle. We work hard to get a good balance between this and the needs of settled communities. Learn more about how we approach this.
