Sitting on site as we speak and given the glowing reviews of this site I have to admit I'm a bit disappointed, wardens not around when we got to site, 16:55 on a Thursday. Drove round the site twice trying to find a pitch with hook up, pitches are not marked in anyway and the ground was very soft making it a bit dodgy for our large front wheel drive motorhome.

Warden did show up and was very friendly, directed us to what he felt was the pick of the pitches, a pretty soggy grass area in the middle of a lot of long term caravans.

Site also has a significant number of statics, some of which don't seem particularly well kept giving the impression parts of the site are not cared for which is probably pretty unfair.

Also thought charge of 6.50/night for hook up seemed a bit painful.

So as I said, overall a bit disappointed but as we are only stopping over 1 night not a huge issue.

We have just returned from 5 nights at this campsite. We were all very pleased with it!

My daughter loved the sand pit and rope swing and paddling in the little stream which flowed into the Beauly Firth.

I liked the informality - pitch in a space! - and despite being August it wasn't too crowded. The views were great - excellent sunsets. I was also pleased with the price - especially as we were there in peak time!

My husband loved the fact that despite being in the Highlands as we were so close to Inverness he got a good mobile broadband connection!

The campsite is well situated for touring around the area, close to mountains, coast, and also easy to get into Inverness for shopping etc.

Only downside was as it was so light so late (not dark until 10pm ish) the kids were very noisy playing out, however as soon as it was dark quietened down very quickly!

Would definitely stay there again!

We stopped here for two nights during our around the coast of uk tour. We arrived around 6 o'clock. We paid 38 for electric pitch for two nights. We was shown to our pitch which was very small and in between two caravans who must keep there caravans there all year round as no-one was staying in them. The man said we should be ok stopping there because the owners of the caravan have not contacted him to say they we coming. This was ok to us but a lot of people are asked to move around.

This is my only downfall the site is beautiful and toilets and showers are clean. There is a nice walk on the waters edge. The staff who work there are very very friendly and will help with anything they lent us an extension for the electric hook up.

If you are to go to do the laundry you need tokens from the office first. All the facilities are spread out around the park so go and explore.

The atmosphere on the campsite is very nice I would definitely recommend it, if you don't mind stopping at bunch(UP)chrew site

We stayed for four nights good site it rained most of the time but the ground stood up to it very well shop could do with more stock in it. Big pitches, good views the play area needs attention big holes under the swings my grandson couldn't play on them but on the whole I would go back again dogs are welcome on leads. Could do with more showers only four water nice and hot its a press button have to keep your finger on it. There is also a van that does hot filled rolls in the morning and hot takeaways at night prices a wee bit dear though I thought. As your only 3 miles from Inverness everything you need is close at hand.

My family and I stayed at Bunchrew for five nights and we were very happy with the site. The site is bordered by high woodland on three sides and the fourth side is looking on to the Beauly Firth making this a very beautiful setting.
The site is a mix of tourers, statics and tents all of which can have access to electric hookups if required and has ample and very clean showers and toilets in one block. There is also a laundry (one of the cheapest I've seen for a while: Total of 2.80 for washing and drying), pot wash, chemical waste disposal and fresh water supply.
There has been a sizeable area set aside for children to play on, this has a football goal, rope swing and a volleyball / badmington net. In addition to this there is also a swing park and a sand pit for the kids. The site has a well stocked shop full of essentials and tourist board leaflets so you can always find something to do in the surrounding area. It also has Internet Access in the shop(3 per hour) or you can take your on laptop and access the WI-FI at the cost of 1 per day.
Dispite the site being busy it was nice and quiet and relaxing, the staff were very friendly and helpful. The site is only 10 mins away from Inverness which has some very good shopping and restaurants and fast food outlets so no matter what your taste you will be catered for. There is also a Vue cinema and an excellent liesure and swimming pool in 'Inverness Aquadome' so if its raining you will always have something to do. On the road out to Bunchrew there is a caravan sales shop with plenty of accessories on sale should emergencies arise.
All in all this site is a fantastic base whether your touring the highlands, walking or fishing holidays or just plain relaxing. This is the third year that the current owners have had the site and from what I read in reviews from before this time they have made some major improvements. I would definitely reccommend this site to anyone and will be back I'm sure.

The location of this campsite is fantastic - right on the Beauley firth. There are no designated pitches - just plenty of open space for tents. You can even pitch at the water's edge (space permitting). There is an open area for children's play, a swing-park and a sand-pit.

I pitched inland to afford some shelter from the strong winds which were forecast. The ground at my pitch was hard. Luckily I had packed rock-pegs, and used all 20 of these to secure the tent.

There is a single toilet/shower block and a separate pot-wash building. The facilities were OK, plenty of hot water etc. There clearly has been some recent and significant investment in the washroom - with the installation of new stainless steel sink-units. The building, however, lacked a modern feel - louvered vents and doors leading directly to the outside mean that the inside temperature is little different from the outdoor temperature. Also, some design details could be improved - such as the addition of shelving at the sink-units so that toilet bags can be kept dry, and improved shower enclosures so that clothing and posessions can be kept dry. These are things that could eaily be fixed to significantly improve user-frienldlyness.

A number of supermarkets are represented in Inverness, but the most convenient on this side of town are Lidl (closest) and Aldi.

The location and attractions in the surrounding area are what would draw me back to this site.
