Help for Gypsies and Travellers
We provide a range of services to assist the Gypsy and Travelling community including education support and permanent caravan sites.
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, please report it below.
We provide 4 permanent caravan sites for use by Gypsies and Travellers:
- Longman Park, Inverness - 19 pitches
- Newtonmore, Badenoch and Strathspey - 7 pitches - contact Sandy Sutherland on 01463 714094
- Spean Park, Lochaber - 14 pitches
- Kentallen, Lochaber - 7 pitches - contact John Ross on 01397 707299
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 Housing Benefit to help with the rent of the pitch.
For more information and advice, please speak to the on-site staff above.
