Site is really well situated to access Loch Ness, Glen Affric, The Black isle and also Inverness city (useful on rainy days). It has a pretty coastal view and access to a stoney beach (a bit too seaweedy for kids playing but good for exercising the dog). The campsite's best feature was the variety of small areas round-about for kids to meet and make friends - lots of random rope swings hanging from various trees, football pitch, swings etc.

Facilities were OK but not amazing. Toilets and showers were being cleaned but were not spotless, and were very dated. The campsite shop at reception sold most basic supplies and also has a freezer for ice blocks. There are a couple of plugs you can use to charge phones in the dishwashing room. Other good point was the excellent hair dryer in the ladies toilets which was free to use!

Had good day trips to Glen Affric, Culloden and Loch Ness (did the full tourist circle). Fantastic Forestry Commission mountain bike trails at Learnie Rock (good for all ages) on the Black Isle and whale and dolphin centre there is also good.

Had a good week there but probably wont go back as we prefer the more remote sites and feel we saw all the things we wanted to in this area.

We returned last week after 5 day stay at bunchrew caravan park weather was not very kind to us as it rained most days. However this is a lovely site and harry the warden was very helpful, finding us a hard standing pitch with good views over the beauly firth. Toilets were a bit tired but always clean. There is a small take away van serving meals morning and evening which is handy if you don't fancy cooking. Inverness is about 3 miles away with plenty shops, theatre and cinema etc. There is a shop on site however can't comment on it as we didn't use it but it looked well stocked. Plenty of supermarkets to choose from in Inverness itself. TV reception and WiFi connection excellent although there is a charge for WiFi 2. 50per day or 7 per week so if staying for more than 2 days it is worth taking for the week. We will definitely return and can happily recommend this site.

A lovely site with beautiful views! You can chose where you park. We only stayed for 1 night while touring. Very quiet, the only thing that lets this site down is the dated shower block. I must agree with the comment from the other review you only got 3 seconds of water before having to pull the chain again. At first glance I did not know how to operate this system it is the first of its kind I have ever come across! The mobile cafe is good! We also saw the dolphins swimming you need to go over the bridge you can see from the site.

Happy to recommend this site. Lovely views of the Beauly Firth and the western hills. We were taken to a choice of locations so we could choose which suited us best. Grass pitches under scattered trees are not demarkated in any way - less formal, which we liked; however, Reception warned us to leave our EHU plugged in if we left for the day, and to leave markers on our pitch. (This is why our grey water cannister has our number plate attached to it!) Small take-away food trailer is popular with lightweight campers and we treated ourselves to chips to go with our Dornoch steak. My one niggle would be the showers - free, with the pulse operated by a pull chain. One pulse gave me three (yes, 3) seconds of hot water so I had to shower one-handed, holding down the chain. However, husband reported that 3 pulls of the shower chain provided enough for his shower. Only another shower in different cubicles would have proved which timing was what the owner intended - 3 seconds or 30. Bus from entrance into Inverness; plenty of day trips in every direction - Beauly, Rogie Falls, Glen Affric, Culloden, Cawdor Castle, Inverness, Loch Ness.

So loved Bunchrew.

I'm the mum of an 18 yr old autistic son, who is often angry, frustrated & bored & very challenging. So with the good weather this summer, I bought a backpackers tent etc & we set out upon an Adventure, leaving Dad & other son at home.

We travelled by coach & bus from our home in The New Forest. Bunchew was the 3rd campsite we stayed at & my favourite of the 5 campsites we stayed at in Scotland.

Bus stop was a 5 minutes walk away & bus service is regular, we received a friendly welcome in shop/office & paid 10 per night (1/2 price backpackers rate). Phone & laptop charging & freezing facilities, were free here, during opening hours. Shop prices were reasonable, apart from my one & only gripe, 4 for a can of butane (( There was also cycle hire, which we didn't use.

On the outskirts of Bunchrew their are a few mobile homes, which I think are residential. Electric hook up is available on site but as we were camping without so N/A to us, part of site (off side) allocated to solar panels & assume these provide green electricity )) Toilet & shower block basic & clean as is washing & washing up.

Their is also a mobile takeaway, run by a lovely lady who loaned me a flask & hot water when I ran out of Gas.

Non electric tent pitches, pitch where suits you & what a view. I pitched our tent & sat their with a coffee a later a bottle of old Rosey cider & every time I moved my head a few inches I was met with another & another & another beautiful view, while the sky stayed light, fantastic.

My son wanted to explore Inverness, which I enjoyed but would also have been happy just to stay here & absorb its beauty & take walks.

* Talking to owner about site. Bunchrew was used as a Prisoner of war camp & as water & drainage etc where provided as so, this beautiful campsite now exists, which I hope to return to soon.

This site is in a fantastic location, situated on the Beauly Firth with views across the estuary of snow capped mountains. It is about 3 miles from Inverness.

The showers and toilets are clean but basic. We are not using the showers as it is cold and they are not heated.

Easy to walk the dog as a little wooded area on the site.

A small shop on site but we didn't use it as went to the large Coop nearby.

We think this site is expensive. We have paid 18. 90 for 2 people in a caravan with electric and out of season.
