Caravan sites

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

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.
