We love this site. We must do as we have just returned from our 8th or 9th visit in as many years.

Under new ownership, we'll look forward to seeing the changes that will be undertaken. But also hope that it basically stays as it is, a lovely unspoiled site that has steered away from all singing all dancing facilities. There is no play park for children. But you have a great pebble beach, where both our children [now teenage] spend hours. The position, views and wildlife are what help make this site one our absolute favorites.

The facilities are still spotless, even though the site was full and the weather not that great.

Fortrose has a co-op, bakery, fish and chip shop, cafe, restaurant and beautiful jewellery shop.

For wildlife head up to Chanory and hopefully you'll get to see famous dolphins, if you time it for after low tide [when it is on the turn]. You'll be in great company with a good crowd all there cameras poised.

There is a fantastic walk up past Eathie mains down a steep but proper track that leads to a beach where when the tide is out, you can fossil hunt [head right when you reach the bottom and head round the headland a bit].

There is so much to see and do in the area, but you can also get across to the west coast, so a day trip to Applecross up and over the Bealach na Ba is a must for us for lunch at The Applecross inn.

Even storms don't stop us coming to this site [and we've weathered a couple here now]. We will return again next year.

Lovely find of a site and much better value than the one on the other side of the peninsula.

10 min walk up to the light house to watch the dolphins

Lots of Pitches had a sea view and mostly taken up with caravans. ( now own a caravan so will be back to try these out)

Toilets and showers are split in two with only one washing up place in the far block from reception.

This is a lovely site in a great position next to a pebble beach. We are in the middle of a 12 night stay here and it is so relaxing and peaceful, as I sit writing this a seal has just swam past the caravan towards chanonry point which is a 20 minute walk away and where we spent a good hour this morning watching the Dolphins, having seen them on 4 out of 5 days so far. We have good views down to Inverness which is about 14 miles away and it is 30 to 40 minute drive to Loch Ness. The site has two toilet blocks and though the block closest to us has just one male and one female shower they seem to cope well even when the site is busy. The new owners are friendly and helpful and we will return if we venture this far north again!

Everything good previously I can vouch for. I have camped up the road at the CCC site for the past near on thirty years. But will in future be booking this site the welcome is a lot warmer and the the pitches not as worn out. The other point is this site is not regimental as the other. Facilities were very clean but old.

Will recommend this site to anybody and wish the new owners all the best, looking forward to returning.

We returned here again, after discovering it last September. The site has been taken over since last year. The new owners are very friendly and very keen. The site is very good. All pitches overlook the Moray Firth. The site is suitable for tents, caravans and motorhomes. Chanonry point is less than five minutes drive away, or fifteen minutes walk, here you can see great views of the famous bottlenose dolphins. The facilities are excellent. Clean toilets and showers, clean and well equipped washing up room. I would not hesitate to recommend this site to anyone.

Just back from a 3 day stay here.

Lovely relaxed site, we were able to chose our own pitch with electric hookup, overlooking the Firth, from which we spotted an otter one night. We also saw a dolphin with her calf.

We used the showers in the unisex shower shack, was a bit apprehensive at the thought, but no need - this setup works well, modern electric showers with good water pressure, also very clean, as was the older style Ladies Toilets.

The site is a short walk into town where it was good to see a nice selection of local shops still in business, and the Co-operative Supermarket had a good selection of supplies. We also had brunch in the garden of the local cafe, which welcomed dogs.

Be careful not to miss the sign for the site, from the main street in Fortrose, the road down is fairly narrow, but there were large caravans and motorhomes that traversed it without problem.

All in all we enjoyed our stay, and will certainly return.
