First visit here and what a lovely spot. Owners very nice and helpful. Yes toilets are a bit dated but they were immaculate. Lovely walks for the dog and couldn't get any closer to the sea. When we were there a lot of regular campers who have been coming for years and we can understand why. Near lots of things to see and do. Locals very friendly with plenty fresh fish and lovely ice cream out and about. Would definitely recommend here if you like walking or anything to do with water. Lovely quiet for chilling out. Nice pub didn't eat anything there the night we decided to eat there they were fully booked about an hour's wait. We definitely will be back and the weather was lovely. Just one day overcast. Lovely place.

Just returned from an amazing break at Findochty. Have never been before and were lucky to hire 1 of the statics. Lovely, clean caravan. Stayed Monday to Saturday with our two kids. Plenty of room for 4. Site very clean and friendly. Surrounding area is beautiful! Breathtaking views over the sea, and we saw the infamous dolphins on Wednesday night! Amazing to see. Had a great week weather wise too which helps. We will be coming here again! Also fish and chip van visited on Thursday night in the harbour. Queues whole night. Walks in every direction. Visits to spey bay recommended to see the Dolphin Centre and Baxter Factory well worth visit too. Sorry to have to leave. No shop on site but 1 a ten minute walk at the most. States site to be quiet after 11pm, but quiet in general.

We totally found this site by chance, spotting a camping sign as we drove along the Moray coast road. Dropping down through the picturesque town the site is situated adjacent to the small harbour. We had a hardstanding pitch right on the front with the most amazing view of the rocky coastline. The site was mainly tourers with a handful of static mobile homes. The toilet & shower facilities are housed in a cottage at the site entrance and are very old worldly but immaculately clean. There are lovely walks along the coast line into secluded coves with tiny shingle beaches. The town of Findochty has a small supermarket and a chemist with a post office inside on the upper road and the Admirals pub which is situated at the entrance to the site. This is a great little place loved it !

My wife and I stayed at the site for one night in our motorhome. We visited reception and were given rather vague directions as to which pitch we should use so we just chose one ourselves which was right next to the shingle beach with great views. The gravel hard standing was fairly level and only needed a slight adjustment to level the vehicle.

There are plenty of EHs within easy reach of the pitches and the site has lighting at night. There is also recycling and rubbish disposal available.

The site is well established and is in a great location for coastal walks and views. The village is extremely picturesque and the harbour has many interesting boats. There is a pub at the entrance to the site and the restaurant was well patronised (we did not use it ourselves). We could not find any shops nearby for food etc. , but there must be some in the village we just did not come across any as we did not need to stock up.

The shower and toilet block is in a cottage at the entrance to the site and has previously been described is warm and cosy and was immaculately clean. The showers has plenty of warm water and were of the ‘push button’ type so no fiddling with taps and settings. There were just 2 MHs and two touring caravans on the site when we were there so there was no queuing for the showers. It may be that in high season with a site full this would not be the case.

Elsan and grey water disposal are available by taking your ‘tanks’ to them. As a motorhomer I prefer being able to drive over the drain to dump my grey waste.

Would we visit again – certainly. Would we recommend the site to others – yes.

We came with friends - they hired a static and we brought our motorhome. It really is a most beautiful site with views that take your breath away. We saw dolphins several times and also enjoyed watching the passing traffic of small boats.

The facilities are quaint but very, very clean.

Great walks up the cliff path and on to the golf course.

Brilliant that golf is included at Strathlene golf club close by. It's an excellent links course with plenty of interesting holes yet not too difficult.

Our only concern was the washing up sinks in the toilet block. I really didn't like the idea of washing up near where people were using the toilets. Also men and women can't wash up together. Another little issue is the placing of chairs in the shower cubicles. They are too small to take them. I would recommend putting drop down seats on the walls. A couple of small changes to the bathrooms would make the place absolutely perfect.

I agree with all the reviewers who have said this site is a gem. It's small but perfectly formed. Stunning location right on the beach (which is beautiful but not great for kids paddling or playing in sand although there is a lovely wee beach on the opposite side of the harbour you could use if you wanted to do that).

It's a charming site - the loos are in an old cottage but rustic very clean and very charming.

The nearby pub has good pub food.

The coastal walks either way are charming down to other fishing villages - and if you don't want to walk back you can get the no. 35 bus back which runs every half hour.

We saw seals on an island close to shore on the coast path to Buckie, and we also saw the dolphins. We had been looking hard but in the end they just swam past us just a little out to sea about 8pm one night at fairly low tide and that was an awesome site.

It's a peaceful site - the only thing I would say is its a residential rather than a holiday place despite the charming harbours and cottages and there may not be enough to do for some.

However in our few years of motorhoming now it is only one of three sites that have ever scored full marks on our own scoring system! We loved it.
