Reviewer: Capt-thow 1 review from this member

Just spent a weekend at this campsite. Had glorious weather and the area is beautiful. Great for dog lovers as beach is so close by. The site was full which is of course a great sign and the kids were all having fun. This site is now under new management and small changes for the good have been made however the one area they really do need to focus on is the toilet block. There is one large block for the site and this is not adequate. The toilets/showers are dated and awful. The shower pressure is zero and there really needs to be more cleaning rounds particularly at peak season. Been in lots of campsites and if the toilets are clean and showers good it really does make you rerun time and time again. Hope management can invest in new modern toilet block rather than focus attention on the sales side of things.

Been on this park one year seasonal pitch. Club and its facilities five star, good bars. Restaurants serving three meals daily, chippy for take aways, shop for most needs, children's slot machine, play room, bouncy castle, and pony riding some weekends.

Large mixed site, really open with long beaches a short walk over the dunes. Gentle beach access. Head for the lighthouse (being turned into a museum and visitor centre this year)

New owners took over in May big strides forward in all fields, more staff. Toilet block updated with new shower and lighting and cleaned five to six times daily, with permanent staff in daylight at school holidays promised. Play areas sparse at best, a pirate ship last year but as I write diggers and toys moving in, looks like a climbing centre slide etc.

Local facilities: 2 miles - Lossiemouth, no path on road, small town facilities, coop main store. 5 miles - ELgin great shop 2 superstores Asda Tesco, good high street, M&S Aldi Lldl, Saturday market.

We're are pensioners so we like a slow pace with minimum fuss and just enjoy the scenery, love it here. Hermesheralded

Went here to meet other family members who had booked to stay here.

Reception was good, minimum fuss and easy entry to the site.

The grass pitch which we were allocated was very uneven and covered in rabbit holes making pitching the awning very difficult to say the least.

Toilet and shower facilities were pretty poor and the in a very dirty condition, despite the site not being all that busy.

Hopefully, the new owners have got pockets which are deep enough to make all the improvements which are much needed. Given the size and location of the site it has the potential to be a fabulous place. Unfortunately, we will not be returning until we hear these alterations have been made.

Great beaches and good location for exploring the local area.

Facilities letting it down badly ie- Shower block in need of tidying up and other areas of the site in need of repair to. Also very little for young kids to do on site.

We were kept up till 0200 due to drunks in the campsite in tents and caravans playing loud music, no attempt was made by warden to control this.

Also no refund made to us as we left the in the morning. Wont be staying there again.

The site is near a great location. Beach is lovely and the dog enjoyed swimming in the sea.

The toilet and shower block require updating and it was not particularly clean. Went to the bar, no atmosphere so walked into Lossiemouth.

We walked to Lossiemouth which took about 20 minutes, but worth a walk to the harbour and other beach.

The beach pub, think this is the name, used to be the old swimming baths, is really friendly, do excellent meals and allows dogs in. They have two outside areas.

Would not return to this site.

Ive been going to this site since the late 60s when it first opened. The site is very clean and the beaches are very safe with lots of rock pools to explore.

The shop is reasonably stocked but do now not sell papers. Its ideal for anything you have forgotten to get. Limited opening times. A large supermarket is at Elgin 7 miles away. The amusement arcade is a bit dated, but is ideal to let the children spend their holiday money.

The cafe and chip shop again has limited opening times. Food was a good quality. There is a very good cafe and chip shop in Lossiemouth 2 miles away. Club lets the site down.

Children under 14 are not allowed in bar so have to sit in children's room, which is very small and unsupervised. Again club during low/mid season has very limited opening times.

The site has a launderette which seemed clean. The toilet blocks and shower blocks are cleaned daily so can be a bit dirty first thing in morning, Toilet rolls do seem to get a bit sparse. But if I did have to use them I would take my own toilet roll with me.

Camping/ caravanning pitches are good with a good area to pitch up in. As with any caravan site look at who your camping next to. There is no use moaning if you do not do your homework before sticking your tent up.

There is plenty of places to visit. Elgin cathederal, Baxters, Whiskey distileries, Lochness, The site isvery close to RAF Lossiemouth so aircraft fly over site on a regular basis usually between 9am and 8pm but can fly 24hrs a day
