Since 1914, the grounds that are a part of Red Squirrel Campsite have been used for camping.
For well over a century campers have been coming to visit the highlands
to experience nature at its finest!
Red Squirrel campsite was founded by Hugh MacColl and has been thriving ever since.


The campsite has a new management team and the site is open!
