Lochy Holiday Park
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 5, 2014

Stayed at Lochy in December in a log cabin. I would highly recommend this little gem of a holiday park for a holiday base exploring The Highlands of Scotland.

The accomodation was absolutely spotless ( I have stayed in many hotels and holidayed in holiday parks both in The UK and abroad, where so often this has not been the case) and was equipped to a very. high standard. The log cabin was very warm and cosy having a nice sized lounge area to relax in. It also had a 'proper' comfortable sofa ( as opposed to the hard and uncomfortable sofa's that you so often find in caravans) and a real gas flame fire that kept the lodge nice and warm. The beds were all made up with high quality thick duvets and pillows, the kitchen was well equipped with scrupulously clean decent sized quality saucepans and other equipment to self- cater. The Bedroom's were quite a good size too, bigger than a caravan, all had heating and the double bedroom had ample storage space to hang clothes up and stow luggage away.

The park is a quiet and relaxing park a few miles from Fort William with spectacular veiws of Ben Nevis and the surrounding area. I feel the park has everything a family would need for a get away from it all break. Lochy has a nice little play park for the children, a laundrette -that is not over priced and a shop ( open in the main season) . If you want constant entertainment, pools with flumes and bars etc then this may not be the park for you, however, we liked the fact that it was a quiet holiday park!

The customer service I experienced was second to none. The owners are friendly, helpful and really appear to care about their customers and the park itself. I did not have any problems whilst staying here, but if I had I would have been very confident that the owner's would have sorted any issue out quickly and effectively. Being an idependently run park they are not governed by a 'computer says no' mentality and can deal with any issues as they see fit.

The area around Fort William and The Scottish Highlands generally is absolutely breathtaking even in the depths of winter. However, in order to get the most out of your holiday, you will need a car to get around and explore places! This part of Scotland is remote and the weather ever changeable, so you need to be prepared and come with a fully waterproof and windproof coat, waterproof boots or shoes, an umbrella, hats and gloves especially in late autumn or winter time!

Fort William is a nice little Town to visit. It has quite a few smaller independent shops, outdoor camping shops and a few high st chains of shops. If you need to buy food to self -cater then there is a big Morrisons in The Town and a Farm Foods near to Lochy. If you fancy a burger then Fort William also has a Mcdonalds. Malliag is around 50 miles from Lochy and is a nice little place to go to. The Fish Market in Malliag serves up wonderful locally sourced fresh seafood and fish for lunch or dinner. The food was lovely, but a little over priced ( £ 35.00 for 2 adult fish and chips and a child's portion at lunchtime with soft drinks) and the staff were not friendly in The Fish Market which was off putting. Inverness is another good place to go - It will take around two hours in the car from Fort William and has the usual array of High Street shops. In the spring and summer months you can enjoy walking and outdoor activities as well.

One last point - The majority of ATM machines in this part of Scotland will give you Scottish bank notes. The Scottish bank notes and English bank notes are legal tender across Scotland. However, if you live in England or Wales you will need to change any Scottish bank notes you have back into English Bank notes once you arrive back in England or Wales as most shops and attractions will not accept Scottish bank notes as payment for goods or services.

If you stay at Lochy you will have a fantastic holiday!

Room Tip: You do not need to worry about taking your own bedding. Lochy's is of a very high standard and v...

We stayed here with our young family for 4 nights at the end of October. It is a quiet site in a great location from which to explore the area. We stayed in one of the Woodbury lodges which are excellent. The weather want great during our visit but the lodges seemed much warmer than caravans. The owners are very helpful and friendly. Amongst other things we visited Glen Coe, Glen Nevis and drove to Morar from here. Fort William is very close by for shops etc.

Thank you for your review. You are correct in your assumption that the lodges are warmer and cosier than the caravans at certain times of the year. This is why we close the caravans down by the second weekend in Oct. This is an excellent area to go walking, bike riding or exploring in and it looks like you had a really good time during your holiday.
We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

Have stayed at Lochy now for a number of years when in Fort William, both with & without my Grandaughters.The children are safe can play on the field without us being worried as we can always see them both. There aren't any cars driving around the site as they have designated parking at various places on the site.
The log cabins are very, very clean and welcoming as are the caravans, the site is quiet so there are no "idiots" keeping people awake.
Always receive a friendly welcome from Mr & Mrs Brown. Hoping to be there again in Feb.

Cleanest and best organised campsite we've ever been to. Not a spider's web or draughty toilet. Well designed, built and maintained facilities; friendly, helpful and welcoming. Great location by river and walks but near town, good "personal space", quiet and green. We'll be back!

Lochy Holiday Park is a perfect holiday park where in you can hire a stationary Car-a-van or you can come along with your own car-a-van. Available car-a-van are perfect for a stay of a small family/friend group. Self catering vans are fully equipped with a small kitchen platform & necessary utensils. Gives an homely experience far away from home. You can plan for any day trip from here e.g. Ben Nevis, or any other climbing trips. The park is located on the banks of River Lochy. You can spend time on the river banks, have camp fire enjoying your wine & dine. Great Place to spend a whole week and not just a week end.

Thank you very much for taking the time to post a review of your visit to our park. I am glad that you enjoyed the spaces around the park and in particular the River Lochy at the bottom of the park. It is a very peaceful and tranquil area to walk or sit and look at Ben Nevis and the surrounding mountains.
We do not have many reviews from such far flung places as Mumbai but we hope you enjoyed your holiday with your family in this particular part of Scotland.

Thank you very much for taking the time to post your review. We are very pleased that you were happy with the park and in particular the range of caravan.camping goods we sell. We do not try and compete with the supermarkets, particularly with the town being so close but we do try and assist customers from far and near who have a specific requirement for their tent/caravan or motorhome.

We stayed here in our Motorhome in September, nice friendly reception when we arrived. It makes such a difference when you arrive and you are greeted with genuine people who clearly care and enjoy their job.

Caravan Park is very clean, didn't see any litter.

Toilet block and Showers really clean, and warm.

Great relaxing place to be.

Nice location and the directions on how to find the site where accurate.

Would recommend and use again

Well done to all who work here as this is a lovely site.

Many thanks for your review of our park and the staff who work with us. We are all pleased that you were met in a cheerful and positive mood by the Reception staff. We are here to please ( and advise when asked ) all our customers and encourage visitors to ask questions about the area. It is amazing the number of people who start chatting in our Reception, not just with the staff but amongst each other, when needing information. Who needs 'Facebook ' or ' Twitter ' when people can chat face to face! You never know,it may catch on!
We do try and present the park and the facilities in as good a light as we possibly can for our visitors at all times
We hope we can welcome you back on a future visit.
