We have just returned from a fantastic break at this campsite. We have camped for at least 20 years now and consider ourselves well travelled. This campsite is one of the very best.

The sites are reasonably level the views are stunning we were lucky to have lovely sunshine on our stay.

We saw many dolphins from our pitch and one evening we even spotted a large otter making his merry way along the loch.

We will return as its not too far from our home and I can see us having many more holidays here.

Don't forget your binoculars and camera.

The shower and toilet blocks leave a little to be desired but hey I didn't go to see them.

If you are towing a caravan don't go down academy street take the next turning to chanory point golf course and the campsite comes up on the right (signposted).

Yes I agree the owners were lovely and the couple who look after the site couldn't do enough for you but oh the toilet block - there was only one shower in both ladies and mens (ladies had cracked tiles) and my hubby said he had difficulty turning round in his!

A beautiful spot and the campsite was full so if the owners are reading this please please spend some of the income and refurbish your toilet block.

Someone also mentioned plenty of room between units - not in our case I'm afraid but then it was the busiest time of the year. Won't return.

We're literally just in the door from a weekend at this site. I can only really repeat what others have said.

We had a waterfront pitch overlooking the moray firth with the snow capped Cairngorms in the background.

The road through the site did make me a little apprehensive at first as we had a very outgoing and non street wise 11 & 2 year old with us. However we came through the weekend without any problems.

The toilet blocks are outdated and could do with a refurb. Only one shower in the gents ( presume the same in the ladies ). I'm 6ft 2 and had a couple of probs in the shower. Firstly in the very small changing area my head was touching the ceiling. Secondly I couldn't get a constant temp from the shower.

Overall a very nice site if you just want to relax or if you don't mind driving to attractions. The owners are lovely people.

We have stayed at this site for at least 10 years and have always been made welcome and found the site clean and tidy. The washing/shower block is always spotless and the site is always free from litter and noise. It is a wonderful place to stay when you are on the Black Isle and a great place to see the dolphins which we have watched from the caravan as they go back and forth.

Everything you need can be found in Fortrose and the local eateries are great. There is a wild life park not too far from the site which is worth a visit and a museum in Rosemarkie which we found very interesting. The beach by the site is quite rocky but nice for watching the birds and there are sea otters which come onto the site. All told its a great place to stay while you explore the area.

Decided to stay on this website as we had seen the reviews and also wanted to see the dolphins at Chanonry point. The owners of the campsite couldn't help us enough, we could park whereever we wanted, and we parked close to reception as we wanted to be out of the way. Tv reception was good, we were a bit concerned about the road in the middle but it was fairly quiet so no concerns. Toilet block was clean but could probably do with being updated. A key was needed to gain access which wasn't a problem. There were laundry facilities but didn't use them, dishwashing facilities were inside which was good and there was even a microwave which was a nice touch.

There was a lovely couple who work at the site and they couldn't have been more friendly. The site wasn't too far from the village which has got basic amenities and were made to feel welcome in the local pub! We went to see the dolphins at Chanonry point on two occasions and weren't disappointed. Would definitely visit again of we were in that part of Scotland again

We stayed here for one night en route to the the west coast and our main reason for picking this site was to see the dolphins that visit Chanonry Point.

We weren't disappointed even though we had limited time and the dolphins turned up on cue just before high tide.

Chanonry Point is quite busy because of the dolphins and there are not really enough car parking spaces so the fact that we could wander down to the point from the campsite in about 20 mins was a real bonus. The kids loved seeing the wild dolphins and it made the diversion well worthwhile.

The site is situated on a long thin strip of land right on the edge of a shingle foreshore and the views down the Moray Firth towards Inverness are lovely. The site is divided in two down it's length by a minor road that leads down to chanonry point.

Some previous reviewers have expressed concerns over this but our experience of this road was that being a dead end it was not at all busy during the day and virtually unused at night. The owners were friendly and helpful.

The toilet block is situated about two thirds down the site and a key is provided (5 deposit refundable on leaving) so that only site occupants can gain access. The facilities were kept very clean and tidy. There is no separate charge for the showers.

With the limited duration of our stay we didn't have much of a chance to explore the local area but there looks to be plenty of interesting places in the area. Inverness is a large place with all the associated facilities including a big Tesco with reasonably priced fuel for those wanting to fill up before heading further north. More locally, we had a nice chippy tea from the chip shop in Avoch (about 3 miles back down the road towards Inverness).

All in all a well run site in a great location with a unique uk wildlife experience on its doorstep. Would definitely pay a return visit.
