First time out ever with caravan thought I would keep it local. First choice was Rosemarkie (just 500m away from Fortrose) but club site was full so tried Fortrose instead despite reviews on here which are a tad unkind. Yes the toilets could do with a refit but they're perfectly fine for their intended purpose. Don't be put off. The benefits otherwise are many. Choice of spot, almost all on the shore front. All with electric hook up. Owners laid back and welcoming (in a stoic highland sort of way) think of Andy Murrays grandparents. The best bit and surely the whole point of caravanning; relaxing with plenty of space for kids. Rosemarkie by comparison looked cramped and industrial ( I walked over to check). I'm sure it's not, just appeared that way. My tuppence worth. Oh, it was a reasonable £25 per night no concession. Local tip; chip shop is very good as is little shop both 10 min walk away (straight on after the school path, not left as all others did )

We have just had a week here

My better half researched the best place to see dolphins on the Moray Firth, this is the area, without doubt.

The site does have the road through it, but it doesn't lead anywhere and it was very quiet, you could count the no of vehicles on 2 hands in a day.

We had a nice pitch, feet away from the beach, nice views over the Firth towards Inverness

Yes, the facilities blocks (there are 2) are not the newest in existence, but they were nice and clean with lots of hot water.

The owners were very pleasant, and very knowledgeable about the dolphins.

Did I mention the dolphins?

This is a site to visit, if you want to see them. The walk to Channory Point, is through the golf course, pleasant in itself and they appear to play for the audience. We saw them 3 out of 5 visits.

Great beach setting on grass 4ft above spring tide highest water if you like a full moon max high tide. Great view across inner Moray Firth.

However, this year, our visit was not value for money. £20 per night for facilities which need a serious upgrade and damn good clean. We had just come from a caravan club site where we paid fair amount less for immaculate facilities and fantastic beach.

Site owners, please fix the missing tiles in the only shower in the ladies, scrub the mould out of the cracks and wash the floor in the laundry/kitchen. One microwave does not make it a kitchen. The vintage wringer on its trestle was an interesting period feature. We weren't happy about having to drive over our, and others, mains hook-up cables to reach our 'van.

Used this site for 20 years love the site managed to get the brother inlaw to camp in a tent for first time. Paid £20 for camper with awning but was also charged £20 for 3 man tent with no hookup absurd for very poor services. Site very run down grass along front about 2 foot long. Sad to say wont be back plenty better sites for better value. As for laundry spent £9 to dry 4 towels in tumble dryer from the 80s. Wee money maker for them. Spend some money updating the place please

Amazing location right on the shoreline. We parked on grass that despite the rain was quite firm. Plenty of elec. Hook ups and space so we could pick our spot. Water was a short distance away.

The couple who ran it were very friendly and chatty.

Toilet block rather outdated and small but as the site was quiet it was never a problem for us.

Fantastic to stand outside at 9. 00pm and watch dolphins slowly swimming past not more than 30 yards away. We went to the viewing point next morning but it was so busy we were unable to park. If you are more able it is only a short walk alongside the golf club.

Will visit again.

We stopped off here on our way to john o groates

We paid £21 for 2 adults electric 2 dogs and motorhome which was a bit pricey but the views made up for this and seeing the dolphins which we came for. We were welcomed buy the owner

We saw the dolphins but not on the site we had to walk up through the golf course to see them the best time is early morning an about 7 at night.

The toilet block had 3 toilets and 1 shower it need more as its quiet a big site. The road did not bother us its just local traffic and people coming to the site
