Holidays in the West Highlands
Holidays at Resipole
For that special place where you can relax and unwind, Resipole is well positioned to enjoy the peace, the silence and the stunning views of the West Highlands. Located on the Ardnamurchan peninsula, on the shores of the recently designated Marine Protected Area Loch Sunart, our comfortable accommodation and facilities will ease away the stresses of modern living.
Take a walk through the ancient Sunart Oakwoods which have been designated as a Special Area of Conservation. This is one of the few areas where the Ancient Caledonian Oak Forest still remains.
Climb the hills out to the summit of Ben Resipole to enjoy the spectacular views out to Skye, the Inner and Outer Hebrides and over to Ben Nevis.
Having discovered the beautiful Ardnamurchan Peninsula you will again be enthralled by the wonderful views from this spacious and level touring park and self-catering accommodation.
Resipole Farm Holiday Park is actively working with local activity providers to provide a unique experience to visitors, enabling cycling, kayaking, guided walks and other activities that bring closer connections to nature and wildlife.
Professor David Bellamy has named Resipole Farm Holiday Park in West Highlands as one of the UK’s greenest holiday spots - and awarded it a special accolade for protecting and enhancing the natural world. Set in 5 hectares of bordering the remnants of the Atlantic rainforests on the shores of Loch Sunart, Resipole Farm Holiday Park provides luxury holiday homes for hire, and also has facilities for touring caravans and tents. Over the past 40 years, the Sinclair family have planted hundreds of indigenous trees on the park and surrounding hillsides, creating a natural haven for deer, red squirrels, badgers and other wildlife.
This superbly located park is also a focus for many rare bird species, and is known to be a breeding ground for the threatened Chequered Skipper butterfly. The efforts of the Sinclair family have now won them a David Bellamy Conservation Award, described by Professor Bellamy as the ‘Green Olympics’ for holiday parks. David Bellamy said he was 'absolutely amazed' when he discovered just how much was being done by holiday parks to protect and enhance the environment. 'Many parks like this have created wildlife wonderlands, and I think it’s time they were given deserved recognition for their big commitment,' said Professor Bellamy.
This Award was made following a detailed audit of the park’s environmental policies, supported by comments made by holidaymakers. The future plans for Resipole Farm Holiday Park include the establishment of managed public access to the Oakwood’s and wildlife hides which will be directly accessible from the park. The park is a member of the British Holiday & Home Parks Association, the park industry’s official body, which is assisting Professor Bellamy with the Conservation Awards project.
Take a moment to read the latest summary from our AA inspection:
A unique location with what must surely be one of the most stunning views in the whole country, as all touring pitches look directly across and along the beautiful Loch Sunart to some of the West Highland’s most remote mountains. For lovers of the outdoors, the natural environment, or just simply stunning scenery this site exceeds all their wishes.
Set naturally within the ancient Sunart Oakwoods, which have been designated a Special Area of Conservation, all touring pitches have plenty space to enjoy the view, with generous hardstandings that will accommodate all vehicles. There is a very good toilet/amenity block just behind the touring area, so as not to spoil the view, and both CDP and drive through MHSP are located close by. Two lovely pods have been added and are proving very popular.
Over the past season an extremely good restoration of a turf topped dyke has been carried out around the front of the site and this gives the illusion, from all pitches, that Loch Sunart laps against the other side of the dyke, when actually there is the single track public road and then the loch shore. Very reminiscent of the ha-ha created on old Estates.
The touring park is now closed for the 2017 season, we open again on the 26th of March 2018.
Our self-catering lodges and cottages are available all year around.
At Resipole we are very mindful of our impact on the environment.
Make your stay at Resipole a bit longer, we have plots available for Holiday Homes.
