Morvich
Scotland
1 acre
Lungfuls of fresh Highland air and the chance to stride across open hills
If you don’t want to raise a crop of sofa spuds with over-developed gaming thumbs, drag your kiddies up to Morvich and spring-clean their lungs with some pure fresh air. At this little patch of the Scottish Highlands there’s no such thing as indoors. Only outdoors. It’s a secluded spot, ideal for the quiet life, but with some brassy adventures waiting outside your tent flaps. The campsite’s a long caber-toss from the shores of Loch Duich, with its dramatic castle, recognisable from many a tin of shortbread. The sea loch’s a popular spot for sea-kayakers and is probably the best place for dramatic views of the Five Sisters of Kintail. They’re not, as you might think, a coven of witches, but a range of mountains, drawn in crayon colours of purple, brown and green, that make for a serious hill-walking challenge. But the campsite, run by the Caravan Club, is equally a lovely little patch of greenery in which to while away the days, doing nothing more than drinking in the views of the last of the Five Sisters. And getting your crayons out if you fancy trying to capture it on paper.

Nearby attractions
Take a trip to see Britain’s tallest free-falling waterfall. The Falls of Glomach are a 7-mile return hike from the end of the road past the campsite, so it’s only suitable for older children who can walk there and back over remote countryside. But it’s worth the trip to see the 100-metre drop. If you’d rather be on the water than just watching it, the National Trust (08444 932231; mailto:kintail@nts.org.uk) runs sea-kayaking taster days from the Morvich centre between April and October. No experience is necessary and it’s £40 for adults and £25 for children over 10.
Food and drink
There’s a small shop onsite for all the basics and enclosed BBQs are allowed (but sadly open fi res aren’t) so you can always cook up something yourself. But if you fancy a bit of posh there’s the Kintail Lodge Hotel (01599 511275) with a sunny conservatory (sadly sun’s not on the à la carte menu) and dining room that serves up tasty treats like pan-seared West Coast scallops or chicken breast stuffed with haggis. There’s also a bar-meal option with more standard fare.
