Welcome to the Beauty of the NW Coast of Scotland!

What we offer…


Excellent self-catering accommodation at the beautiful white and safe sandy beach of Achmelvich in North West Scotland. Hillhead Caravans is located in an area ideal for country lovers who are looking for peace and quiet and enjoy beautiful scenery, observing wildlife, walking, cycling, photography, sailing or relaxing with a good book. The caravans are well equipped, warm, and comfortable; all heating and lighting included in the price.

Achmelvich beach (3 miles north of Lochinver, 55mins drive north of Ullapool) is one of the west coast of Scotland’s beauty spots, with unique white shell sands and safe bathing from the gently sloping beach. The award winning beach is very clean and uncrowded, and the sandy bottom gives the sea a tropical colour.

Hillhead caravans has been under the personal supervision of the Macleod family now looking forward to our 58th year and 59th season in 2023, with many regular visitors that return every year – childhood visitors later bringing their own children. One family celebrated their 50th consecutive year with us in 2017, and returning each year and celebrated 55th visit in 2022, another family 49 years and many in the 10’s, 20’s and 30’s. Our guests enjoy the tranquility and unspoiled beauty of the location, the convenience of the amazing white shell sand beach on the doorstep, and exploring the rich countryside easily accessible nearby. The possibilities are endless.

We most sincerely thank all our customers for their understanding and great help during the difficulties we all had of operating through Covid, when we were operating under very restricted conditions for everyone’s safety.  We look forward to better things.

Contact details, prices, accommodation and local information are all available elsewhere on this web site. Please get in touch with any further enquiries. We hope you will visit us soon.
