Scheduled to operate from Summer 2023

We are working to create a caravan/camp site on the Barvas side of the estate.

The site will welcome tourists and visitors with motorhomes or caravans to stop and enjoy the Barvas area.

It is important we work proactively to protect the machair along Barvas beach where wild camping is common. The provision of a caravan / camp site in an area where there is currently none available will help us to protect the environment by reducing rubbish disposal and ensuring safe chemical toilet disposal.

We are interested in the community’s views on the proposed plan. We would appreciate if you could answer a few questions in this survey link to help us develop a site that works for all.

Aims and purpose

Excessive use of the Machair by non-agricultural vehicles may cause long term environmental impacts on this important area. Among the initiatives to address this damage and to support the recovery of the area, Barvas Estate Trust obtained land to develop a motorhome / camper van site with facilities. The aim is to encourage people to stay locally around Barvas in an area away from the Machair and provide a range of visitor services currently unavailable.
