This our second stay with new owners Rachel and Mike who are incredibly friendly and helpful. They are working really hard and improving their site. The site itself is right on the water with incredible views. Ground is well maintained with good level grass pitches for all. The new shower units are great. There is no play park but who needs one with the beach and so much space to run. This is the first time we have come back to a site since we got our motorhome last year. It is so peaceful. We had used the club site round the point at Rosemarkie before but often felt crammed in on small pitches. Not an issue at Fortrose. Pitch fees are extremely reasonable too. A short walk takes you into the village where you'll find a butcher, baker, Co-op, brilliant fish and chips and the Anderson with a real ale and whisky 'menu' to make you need to stay longer. You can walk to Chanonry Point from this site and then round to the beach cafe in Rosemarkie. We have a black labrador who is made very welcome. So much space for him to walk, run and swim. No need for a designated dog walk! There is so much to see and do without having to leave the site with our motorhome. Don't miss this little slice of paradise.

We have just returned from a fantastic weekend at Fortrose campsite. The campsite has fantastic views across the Moray firth for ALL pitches, and there is access to a pebble beach, which my boys enjoyed skimming stones from. The new owners are a friendly couple (Mike and Rachel) with two dogs, they were incredibly helpful, and the rate was very, very reasonable. The facilities were clean, and the two additional hot showers (FREE) with a good size changing area were great.

We went to see the dolphins at Chanery point, which is only a short walk from the site, I unfortunately missed them, but I did see an inquisitive seal!

The co op is only a short walk from the site and sells a good range of provisions.

We will definitely stop here again, and we are in the process of booking a return visit. I would not hesitate to recommend them.

It's been a few years since we stayed at this site and it was lovely to be back.

The views are really spectacular, and it is just so peaceful and tranquil.

The site has just been taken over, the couple running it are friendly and helpful. They were able to give us some local recommendations too.

Although the toilet blocks are still the same, they are very clean, and there is a new unisex shower block which is excellent. There are two separate shower rooms - they have large spacious showers and plenty room to change, as a family of young kids, this was great for us!

The site is straight on to a pebble shore, perfect for skimming stones. Our boys loved it.

Fortrose is a lovely village with a lot of small, local businesses, there's a well stocked Co-op and a cash machine available too.

The site is excellent value for money, 20 includes electric and there was no additional charge for our kids or dog.

We'll definitely be back very soon!

We have been advised this site (formerly named Fortrose Caravan Park) is now under new ownership. We've been advised that the new owners plan to spend the winter making improvements to the site in order to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.

Beautiful situation with wonderful views over the Moray Firth 20 per night I think is a little excessive for the facilities provided whilst toilets & showers were reasonably clean the campsite seems a little run down, spent seven nights there the grass was not cut once and when it was last cut the grass was not collected. Hence we were continually fighting to keep our motorhome clean. On our last day there a fellow customer arrived and ended up cutting the grass himself, overall lovely location but could do with a bit of TLC and it would be a wonderful site.

We were really disappointed by this site and left after only one night.

Yes the views are lovely, as were the dolphins. But the facilities left a lot to be desired. Firstly they weren't heated, and we needed them to be! They we decidedly tired.

Whilst it wasn't the owners/managers fault there was a water main burst, which the owners/managers did know about. But it was their responsibility to know the showers were only producing cold water because of the reduced pressure. All that was needed was a notice pinned to the door. Instead I had the unpleasant experience of only finding out after I had taken all my clothes off and had stood waiting in a cold room for the hot water to come through & it didn't. I then got dressed and walked along the road to the other shower block and the owner drove past and waved! When I got there the process was repeated but this time no water came out! How did I find out about the burst pipe? A local man walking his dog told me! Yes I know this sounds funny, but in the cold and rain it isn't.

No we wouldn't come back here.
