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.

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.
