Moorcroft Holidays at Carinish were paid a visit by a very special fleet of caravans last weekend, with seven airstream trailers calling for a few days.
Airstreams are classic American caravans, known for their distinct shape and rounded aluminium bodywork.
Groups of people who share a passion for the eye-catching trailers and travel to destinations together are informally known as ‘airstreamers’.
One such group – made up of caravans from England, Germany and Holland – visited North Uist last week.
Andre Ditton – a Gàidhlig learner and frequent visitor to the islands – said the group were spending their time generally relaxing. He arranged the visit to the Outer Hebrides, which he says appealed to the group’s “sense of adventure”.
Andrew himself is staying on the islands longer to take part in Ceòlas, but the other airstreamers are setting off at different times and in different directions.
Moorcroft Holidays is run by Iain and Catriona Morrison and comprises a caravan park, campsite and bunkhouse. This year, two ‘Hobbit Houses’ – small accommodation pods for campers – were added to the offering, with another on the way soon.
