This was my first stay at this site but my daughter's second when we arrived my daughter was welcomed by her first name which I felt was very welcoming the staff were attentive and helpful. Our pitch was on The Platform which had smashing open views to the sea they pitches were roomy and we had ample room around the van to sit and relax we hooked up to the electric switched on the television got the kettle on and made plans for the evening. The site is close to the town with a choice of eateries. Ladies and Gents washrooms with coin operated shower cubicles, wash hand basins, wcís, hairdryers, electric shaver points and all spotless. The site has it's own sandy beach and there are super walks along the paths next to the beach to the nearest villages. We had a great time the weather was on our side and the sun shone all weekend we look forward to returning in the near future.

This was a lovely surprise be warned very narrow roads to site but we had no problem some pitches have a lovely sea view. Toilet block clean there are two blocks one with laundry and a good area with lines for drying. No shop but a short walk into the village with a couple of shops, coffee shop, fish shop and a couple of pubs. There is a lovely harbour (when we arrived it was fun day so very busy) a nice walk to some quaint beach huts. A large play field used by local football team but great for the camp site children with a skate board bicycle park and a small play area with slides etc. The staff helpful but did not see a lot of them once we were shown to our pitch. Would go again a pretty area.

Nice campsite but as others have said a bit cramped. Best feature is undoubtedly the proximity to the beach. Also has a decent public play park across the road from it.

Toilet block is a bit dated but functional. Small hut with freezer facilities very useful but unfortunately some campers are selfish and take up the whole fridge/freezer with several days worth of shopping leaving no room for ice blocks etc. Site can be noisy. Some people like to drink and play card games into the small hours with no consideration for others (it was a group there for a car rally, complete with rally car so will probably be back early Aug 14).

Staff very friendly and helpful.

Local Hopeman shops provide most things with Elgin having Aldi, Tesco etc.

Site is probably a bit expensive for what it offers but if you're looking for a beachside campsite in that area, there's not a huge amount of choice.

Oddball site with six touring pitches set on raised plinth set in the centre of a mainly very cramped static holiday caravan site/park. A second area is allocated for touring caravans, and area for tents. The site does have direct access to Hopemans West beach and East beach is a couple of minutesí walk from the site. The sand is fine and blond, with plenty of coves and rock pools to explore.

The site has two quirky (modernised and still dated!) but clean toilet blocks and showers are by coin operated metres (40p for a shower). Outside washing up area providing lukewarm water, not much fun with prevailing cold sea winds!

Hopeman harbour is located outside the site entrance and the coastal pathway runs both East & West from site.

Hopeman village has a store, butchers, cafť, post office, fish and chip shop, and Chinese take away.

Not the best of sites, but this is compensated with the access to lovely quiet sandy beaches and exposed coastal walks.

Fantastic location, superb views of the Caithness coast across Moray Firth. Only a few paces to a sandy shore. Excellent for walking, cycling and dog walking. Good local shops, takeaways amd pub all within a few minutes walk from the site.

Toilets and facilities ok although I do object to to having to pay 40p for a shower when I've already paid quite high site fees.

The biggest negative for me though is the packing density for tourers. I've never been packed in so close unit-to-unit. Spoilt it a bit for us as everything else was so good.

This was our fourth visit to Station Caravan Park. We have visited a number of other sites in the area but always return to this one for its beach location, well kept park, and local amenities. There are two areas for tents. One in a walled garden which gives great protection from the wind, and the other, at the top field behind about 3 or 4 rows of caravans. On this occasion we were put in the top field as the walled garden was full of caravans. In fact, we were the only tent on the whole site! My advice would be if you need the protection of the walled garden then book well in advance.

The owners give you a warm and friendly welcome on arrival, and once you have paid you are escorted to your pitch. The facilities are very good for campers, as they now provide a tall fridge/freezer in the hut which is really handy. The hut also provides books to borrow, leaflets on the surrounding area, as well as buckets, spades and bandy nets and even a couple of boogie boards for the kids. They have also just recently installed highland Wi-Fi which is available to purchase from reception. (We didnít use it, so canít comment on price or reception. )

There are two toilet blocks; both cleaned regularly so no complaints there. (You are given a toilet key on arrival) The one nearest the top field has private cubicles for sinks. The other nearest the walled garden doesnít, but it has three showers. (Iíve never had to queue for a shower yet. ) Itís not the cheapest site Iíve ever been to. I think we were charged just over £24 per night. This was their low season rate for a large tent with EHU. But you get what you pay for so I wonít complain.

The village itself has a decent sized Costcutter, a Chemist, a small Newsagent, a Garage, a Chip Shop, a Chinese take away and the amazing Meiles local ice cream shop. My kids love experimenting with their bizarre flavours such as Irn Bru! These are all within 5 minutes walking distance from the site. The local park is directly across the road, and has a nice range of equipment for all ages. It even has a skate park at the far end.

The beach is beautiful. Walk East, past the lovely beach huts for about 45 minutes and you come to the most amazing caves. Walk West along the old railway line and youíll come to Burghead. Iíd recommend a visit to ďThe BothyĒ where I ate the most amazing fish that I have ever tasted!

The pool in nearby Elgin is nice. Check out their timetable as they have fun sessions during the holidays with a large inflatable. We visited Brodie Castle which was running the Cadburys Easter Egg Trails the weekend we were there. Well worth a visit. We also went to Brodie Country Fair for a browse around their lovely home wear and a hot chocolate in the cafe, very nice indeed. Weíll be back in mid July when they run Hopeman Gala Week. Loads of great activities each day to keep the kids entertained!
