Sorry, Grannies - we won't be back. Dogs running free all over site, dog mess left, adults and children playing football, frisbee around vans. Small children knocked over by large dogs. Football kicked into the side of our van with no apology. Huge play areas away from vans - lazy people. In short, anarchy. Toilet facilities are good, clean and heated. Only 2 showers for women, no means of cleaning them after use therefore dirty floors at busy times. Restaurant fully booked by the time we arrived (around 3pm). Noisy bar with one pool table. Pool table mechanism temperamental, member of staff helped us on day 1. On day 2 pool table mechanism wrecked by man in bar with huge fists. Good dog walks on beach. Only satisfied customers in our group were the dogs. Focus here is all on static vans. Tourers left to their own devices. No obvious security. Paid for 4 days, left after 3.

Stayed here July 2015, prior to peak season, Tent with elctricic, 1 adult, 1 child. Have stayed at Embo various times over the last 30 years, its the nearest family park to me, I love it, as does my daughter, which is why we go back. Entertainment in area in general is dated, and I don't think much has changed except the decore for a while. As you would expect with Parkdean the kids entertainment is brilliant, and I could not fault the people that do it at all, food was quite good, although they did run out of Ice cream in the restaurant, which was not good out of peak season.

Small shop which had an awful lot of stuff in it, so no reason to leave thesite if youdon't want to.

Large swing park which was well used, with sand underneath.

Toilet blocks, 1 modern which had everything required for a touring site, lots of hot water and well cleaned, and the original one which is open weekends and peak season (I think)is older and dated, but the one we used most because it was quieter and nearer, dated but clean, although it did tend to run out of hand soap and toilet paper regularly. Losts of camping areas, however, check your weather, the central area of the camping area does hold water, and as such has a tendancy to flood, as happened when we were there, but years of knowledge means I was not in that area.

Staff are friendly, the area is beautiful, with Dornoch being the nearest town, there is larger supemarkets in Tain, about 15 minutes away. In Golspie, 15 muinutes north, there is a very nice fossil/rock museum which was fascinating, even though its not my cup of tea, but is my daughters, and well worth a visit.

2 different styles of beaches, 1 sand and 1 rockpool, which always attract the children, these are very good rockpools, but make sure you have the correct footwear, not the heels that I noticed 1 lady wearing, 1 occasion we gathered anough muscles for a light lunch.

I will be expecting to come here at least once a year while the kids are young, and hopefully after they have left home as well.

Lovely site and very helpful site. Nice pool, sauna etc, with fish and chips for supper. Quite dog friendly with a wonderful dog walking area not to be missed, shame dogs not allowed in bar or entertainment centre though understandable. Fantastic beach on site which the dog loved with beautiful golden sands. The only thing I didn't like were the toilets and showers, 2 showers is inadequate for a site this size, and only 1 had dryer in for the whole toilet block, desperately needs updating, if it wasn't for this I would give the site 10/10.

Plenty to do around the site good bar meals and great service staff were always about cleaning tidying up around site nice base for visiting the area free Wi-Fi in and around complex but not reaching touring area will get a booster for next visit

Toilets good but site was quite quiet but possible to be queues in summer months when busy great for pets good walking places around the site and plenty for the kids swimming pool amusements ect will be back when in the area

Visited again this year with our new puppy.

Site was clean and tidy, only issue was the seagulls. Not the parks fault but the insane people feeding them in front of there caravan.

The toilets were clean and all fully open this time so much better.

As always Dornoch was good to walk round and visit shops.

My family & I stayed for one night in a motorhome on our tour around Scotland during the Easter holidays. Having experienced a number of different caravan parks over the years we found this one to be very comercialised, over crowded & not near enough showers for the size of the touring area. The very large site had friendly staff & good priced pitches but the toilets & ONLY 2 showers weren't clean during our stay. On the plus side, there is good on site facilities (shop, restaurant, takeaway, swimming pool, entertainment) Catered more for the static caravan market.
