Moyle Park is a certified site which lies in a remote and beautiful glen in scenic Wester Ross. It’s an ideal place for hill walkers as there are several popular marked walks and trails in the region. These include the Five Sisters of Kintail, South Cluanie Ridge, Falls of Glomach, the Saddle and Ben Sgritheall, and Forcan Ridge.

The village of Glenelg village is just a few miles away and this picturesque hamlet has a post office, an inn, two churches, and a general store. The breathtaking Kyle of Lochalsh is just over 20 miles away from the campground and that has a few bigger shops.

One of the highlights at Moyle Park is the self-catering cottage for those who would rather camp in luxury. The modern cottage has three bedrooms and sleeps five people. The region is excellent to explore and getting to the Isle of Skye is a wonderful day trip as the ferry is close by.

There are quite a few historic sites to check out as well. These include General Wade’s Barracks in Glenelg, and the Eilean Donan Castle in the town of Dornie.

Moyle Park welcomes dogs and has a chemical disposal area. You can get fresh water and showers and washrooms are available. You don’t have to travel far to find fishing, horseback riding, a beach, and watersports as they can all be found within a few miles of the campground.
