Reviewer: Treen67 5 reviews from this member

Just returned from a 4 night stay at this lovely little site. We booked a tent pitch with electric hook-up. There were no problems with email communication or booking. We paid 84 for 4 nights for 4 people.

The site was more than adequate for our needs. Ok, there is no bar or restaurant but there is a small shop at reception (selling Citronella candles and preowned DS games much to my son's delight) and Inverness is only 10 minutes away by car. Ice packs were frozen for us free of charge too.

Pitch sizes are large and some have shade. The central sloped are is reserved for tents requiring electricity.

Toilet block was ok but toilets did not always flush and sanitary bins (just ordinary pedal bins) were not emptied daily. Showers were free and clean enough. There is a hairdryer for use which takes 20p coins.

There is an indoor laundry/washing-up area/campers kitchen. The provision of bar stools, kettle, toasters and microwave is a nice touch for when the weather is bad. There are also boxes of toddlers toys to keep wee ones amused when doing the laundry or dishes. You can also find a plentiful supply of tourist leaflets in here as well as a small supply of magazines and books to borrow. This is where the tv is also to be found so for the World Cup matches this was the place to be.

There is also an on site enclosed playpark with wooden equipment which seemed to be popular with the kids and wasn't over run with teenagers as on some parks. This is visible from the tent area so I had no concerns about letting my 9 year old play there.

I would definitely return if I was in the area again.

I don't understand the general enthusiasm for this site. Its location is reasonably convenient for Inverness and for touring the area, but there is nothing nearby and no view. The pitches are a reasonable size, but there are very few hardstandings and the ground can get spongy after rain.

The toilet block is quite old. The toilets do not flush properly - it takes at least two 'pulls' to get the water to flow and even then the result is unsatisfactory. The shower stalls are minute, with the flimsiest of shower curtains. There are panel radiators, but they did not appear to be on despite night time temps in single figures.

There is a 'dog walk', but it is just a very narrow path through undergrowth with no space for dogs to 'express themselves'.

We have stayed at parks across Scotland in the last ten days and this park, without comparison, has been the best. Clean and well appointed amenities, friendly service and very competitive pricing. I would strongly recommend this park to anyone. They seem to anticipate the needs of their customers providing not just the major requirements but the finer details to ensure a pleasant stay.

A lovely little camp site on the edge of Inverness. Very easy to find and the site owner very helpful.

Showers a bit weak but the facilities very clean and tidy and warm which was brilliant as the evenings were a bit cool.

No bar or eating facilities here but only a few miles from Inverness so no shortage of restaurants or supermarkets to cater for all your needs. Attached to the shower block there is a kitchen and laundry area which had a kettle, toaster and microwave with basics such as milk sugar and butter. A brilliant idea which I have never seen anywhere else.

A small play park for the children which was always full so that must be a good sign.

Close to touristy things to do such as the Loch Ness boat trips and the Culloden battlefield both of which we thoroughly enjoyed.

Watched the dolphins at Kessock Bridge and despite only staying for a couple of days we will definitely return to Inverness and Auchnihillin.

We have a 34ft long RV towing a trailer and car (44ft in total)so finding sites that can cope with us can be difficult. Our first site after embarking on a 5 week tour of Scotland, at Auchnahillin they were keen to help and offered us a suitable site (long ways across two pitches)and 'dumping' facilities as we were unable to use the raised sink supplied.

The staff were very helpful and the facilities for laundry and ablutions were very clean and well cared for. A very nice touch were the facilities for campers, with the ability to eat under cover and make toast/use a microwave etc.

Lots of information on local attractions and walks. Nice to see recycling in operation and free 'dog poo' bags if you needed them. The site was wet underfoot after our Spring weather, particularly the dog walk though still usable. A lovely quiet location with good views. The Dairy at Daviot is well worth a visit for lunch! Highly recommend a visit to this site.

We liked this site, no litter.

The bathroom facilities WERE clean and modern (I read a review that states that they were not. NOT SO, I saw them being cleaned regularly, with frequent replacing of toilet roll and hand wash. )The showers were lovely and hot and FREE!

We originally booked 3 days ended up staying an extra week as the price was so reasonable and there was a lot to do in and around Inverness.

The kitchen area is practical and usable it has some nice touches like a spare tin opener and plates for anyone who has forgotten to bring them and a microwave oven. The kids books/toys were a good idea and the mini lending 'library' gave me a choice of plenty of old magazines/books to read in the more quiet times.

The washing machine and drier work fine and are reasonably priced.

The kids play park is small but it is adequate it was enough to keep our four kids aged between 4 and 9 years occupied just, for the time we were on site there is also a really good flat grass area at the far end of the site that the kids liked to play ball on.

The owners were open, welcoming and helpful.

This is a small site it has not got amusements, clubs or a bar which is exactly what we were after.

You can order a Chinese meal cooked locally and delivered a little expensive but of good quality.

One small gripe would be that the dog walk was over grown (please cut the grass) had an awful lot of dog waste along the route more a reflection of the lack of care by the dog owners than the camp owners, we walked our dog completely off the site so it was'nt a problem.

LOCATION as a base to explore the local highlands and Inverness great as a self contained holiday park limited.

15 minuets and your in Inverness the swimming pool is worth a visit as is, . The ice skating rink. Nairn beach is beautiful yellow sand, (dogs welcome further up).

This site is priced correctly any more expensive and we would probably go else ware.

we are going again this weekend (may 2013). Looking forward to it.
