This is our 3rd visit to Dingwall and we will not be going back. On arrival my husband was given a rather stern welcome by the warden. He explained our Vango Airway Serpa drivaway tent was about 5m in length to which she replied that they probably would not be able to accommodate us as this was far too big (we had previously booked this site/awning facility a few months ago) and that other sites such as Keswick (we weren't in Keswick) definitely wouldn't take us (we wont be going to Keswick!) He then had a lecture about fire regs etc but our motorhome and awning took up a lot less room than a car/caravan/awning put together.

We also had our well behaved, kept on a lead and walked off site dog with us. Unlike the chap with the two unleashed, barking dogs we encountered several times. And guess who he was - yes the warden.

On our second to last day we decided to take our awning down whilst it was dry and then went off visiting relatives only to come back to find that the warden had sold our site on to campers. Charming! Good job they had spare pitches although the warden did say it would not have been a problem if they had not as she would have found us a pitch anyway - fire regulations????

Showers/toilets dated and although not the wardens problem, Dingwall has gone downhill.

I stayed here for one night with a bicycle and small touring tent whilst cycling from Lands End to John O Groats. This site is located on the outskirts of the town near the football field and I found it very quiet. The wardens were extremely friendly and accommodating and I was given a flat grassed pitch with a picnic bench to share with another small tent. The showers and toilets were very modern and extremely well kept. The town is a short walk away and has a whole host of shops including some takeaways. I had a very nice Chinese. The only occasional noise is the odd train arriving or departing from the station nearby. At £8 for the night this was very good value for the quality of facilities and very bicycle friendly.

We spent four nights here attending a family event before moving on to Rosemarkie. Frankly wish we had continued at Dingwall!

The site is compact and sited opposite Ross County Football Ground. AS the playing season had long finished this was not a problem. It is also within walking distance of Dingwall town centre with its shops and large Tesco store. It is also close to Dingwall railway station - indeed the railway line runs along one side of the site, but this is not a problem - 2 car diesel units are pretty quiet and there are only around a dozen a day each way. Indeed this could be a useful way to go to Inverness if you didn't want to use the car. It is very easy to access roads to Inverness, Ullapool, Beauly, Invergordon and the Black Isle, so this site makes an excellent touring base.

The site manager was a cheery guy who was very helpful, whilst his assistant managers were also helpful.

Pitches are a mix of hard stand and grass - we had the latter, but again this was not a problem as the ground appeared to be well drained. The 6 metre rule ensures that you have privacy. The facility block is a little aged, whilst the wash-up sinks are under a separate canopy. However I understand that this site is due for some major upgrade works over the 'close' season from November this year.

Dingwall does not really have any good restaurants, but we went to the Conon Bridge Hotel - just two miles away - one night and had an excellent meal. The bright lights of Inverness are little more than half an hour away.

Having by-passed this site many times, we shall now make it our main base for visiting the Far North. At a little over £16 a night it is well priced.

Stayed one night on the way south. Grass pitches and some soggy areas after heavy rain. Very helpful warden, facilities fine, although dishwashing outside! Easy walk into town, but still had difficulty finding food on a Monday night! Pizza sufficed! Railway is right next door, but wasn't noisy, but you might not want to arrive just before or after a home match fo Ross County!

Most expensive site in 3 weeks, partly because we are not members of the right club!

Good dog walking just off site.

I camped here twice whilst cycle touring. The staff were friendly and helpful, and on both occasions allocated me a pitch near the middle of the site, sheltered from the wind by a hedge, and just about 30 meters from the toilet block. I found the facilities to be good, though I understand they are due for refurbishment. The site is between the local football ground and the railway, neither of which bothered me, but it may be different if there is a home game! It is just a short walk into Dingwall town, where there are several pubs / restaurants and supermarkets, as well as other shops.

This site is great, nice and quiet, clean and the staff are very friendly and helpful, they helped me put up my tent because I was a lone female.

It's a fantastic base for exploring the highlands, there's a tesco and lidl in the town along with takeaways and other high street shops.

It's a 5 minute walk to the train station (which runs past the site but didn't bother me at all) it. Took me 15 minutes to walk to tesco or it's a 5 minute drive, there's a train to Kyle of Lochalsh that leaves Dingwall station it cost me £24. 70 return well worth the trip regarding the scenery but was disappointed once at Kyle of Lochalsh. Maybe next time take a bus trip over to Skye.

I'll be going again in a couple of weeks for the weekend with my husband in our new tent

Not sure if the staff here see this review but thanks guys for your help and kindness xx
