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.

We stayed on the site for 5 nights in July.

The site was very busy during our stay.

The site itself is very nice but is looking a little dated. There are no designated pitches. The very friendly and helpful owner takes you round the site pointing out the available pitches then lets you choose which suits you. In our case this was decided by the length of our hook up cable. The one and only criticism of the site staff was that the owner never showed us the facilities, were left to find these ourselves.

The site is a little dated now and some of the facilities need updating. The shower block was never clean during our stay no matter what time we visited but it was in constant use. There was also only two stools in the gents, one in the ladies, showers. If you didn't get a stool you were reliant on two small hooks on the back of the door to keep everything off the floor or it got soaked. The showers were always hot.

The location is this sites biggest asset. Right on the banks of the Beauly Firth. You can see the Kessock Bridge from the banks at the site and I'm sure there must be dolphin sightings here too. Inverness is a short drive.

This site is a great base for touring the region. Only let down by dated facilities but there's no need to let that ruin your stay. I feel the price was reflective of the facilities and very fair. The on-site bacon roll van was very nice too.

This camp site is now under new owners, not much has changed since my last visit, toilets and showers could still do with upgrading, It is still a very friendly site. Very level pitches, the price of all the extras soon mount up anything over 2 persons is classed as extra even a 5yr old, awning, ehu all extra.
Showers are free, It has wireless internet £1 a day. All in all not a bad site for a few days stop. Inverness is only 4mls away and there is a Lidl only a few miles down the road. It is a good base for touring the highlands.

This is a beautiful location with the site bordered by the Beauly Firth to the North and trees on the other three sides. It is on an old POW camp as evidenced by some of the remaining buildings and has been terraced to make level pitches. We found the site very friendly and there is an area the size of several pitches set aside for children to play and which was equipped with a rope swing, volleyball net and space for balls games; there was also a set of swings a little distance from this area. A snack bar serving breakfast, dinner and hot and cold drinks opened in the morning and early evening and was well used.

The current site owner took over last year and is actively working on improving the site further, he and the remainder staff were very approachable, friendly and keen to help.

The number of showers and washing facilities was good but the water tended to fade away if several people are using the facilities, this was due to be rectified in the next few days with the fitting of a new pump. Toilet paper, hand washing soap and electric dryers are supplied.

Inverness is a few miles down the road and is well served with supermarkets and the surrounding area is awash with places to visit or walk or cycle to. A feature of the area are the dolphins that frequent the area near the Kessock bridge so take your binoculars. Red squirrels are to be found in the local area, I didn't see any in the site woods but did in the countryside to the south west. If you are into arboreal things then a look at the effect of coppicing the trees (presumably during the war) in the woods on the south side of the site and then leaving them to grow might be of interest.

Overall I would have no hesitation in recommending this site and the surrounding area.

We were on our way back from Stornoway and decided to go the 'scenic' route and scout around the campsites in the area. We drove into this campsite and adored it immediately!

We pitched out tent right on the shores of Beauly Forth and spent a magnificent afternoon and evening watching the sun set and enjoying a lovely barbecue.

The campsite was level, the ground not too hard. The toilets were in good working order, however the showers were a bit dirty and could do with a 'freshen up'. The onsite shop was okay, but not stocked with too much 'real food' like meat and veg so a quick foodie trip was in order. Other than that, the campsite was a real joy and I would definitely recommend it.

According to our neighbours the fishing is good and allegedly, if you get up REALLY early, (about 4am ish) you can see the dolphins - though we never made it up that early.

Don't know what playground facilities there are for the kids, but the ones we saw seemed happy enough riding around the site on their bikes.

All in all, it's a great site and I will definitely be going again.

Decent enough camp site with very pretty views over the Moray Firth. Badly let down by the outdated and scruffy toilet/shower block. A new modern facility would make such a difference to this site. Not an expensive site, but for the price we paid I was very dissapointed.
