This is a well maintained site and the facilities are first class with spacious showers and individual wash cubicles. There is no extra charge for use of the hair driers. The laundry and wash areas looked excellent also although we had no cause to use them.

At just over £16 per night for CCC senior citizens it is very reasonable for the standard offered. You will be tempted as we were to stay just a little bit longer as it is an excellent base from which to explore the area. Railway station is just round the corner and has a simple but very nice coffee shop there. Various bus routes operate from the town.

Site seemed very popular with dog owners as there are various options for exercising and walking along the canal and owners were all very responsible.

If you are looking for somewhere that is completely quiet you may not enjoy it here. It is right next to Ross County Football Club and Academy so there were sometimes training sessions in the morning. We didn't find this in any way invasive. The occasional train rumbles past and again this is hardly noticeable. The seagulls made more noise!

TV reception was weak and patchy on pitch 3. It would be advisable to ask where reception is available before pitching up.

The site is within easy walking distance of the town which has a Tesco and Lidl supermarket as well as various other places to shop, browse and eat.

The four star rating for child friendliness is simply because there is no specific play area on site. There is no other reason why parents would not want to bring their children here.

Would have no hesitation in returning.

Had one night here while enjoying the NC500. We were given a warm welcome, we asked for a sunny EHU pitch & were taken to a pleasant one on mown grass where the dog could lie down (tied to the van) and stare at the many rabbits grazing nearby. No sight or sound of any of the unpleasant unleashed dogs mentioned by a previous reviewer, and our dog enjoyed her walks along the river beside the adjacent football training ground. The toilet block has been refurbished, it's so fresh & new that the keypad on the door isn't in use yet. The trains were infrequent & not a nuisance in the evening when we sat outside. Dingwall has a good feel about it, a strong sense of community, and there's free Highland Wifi on the pedestrianised main street. All in all, we liked the site so much that we timed how long it took us to get home, with a view to returning in future to stay longer. It cost about £16 for EHU on grass, members' age concession, good value.

Very clean and well maintained. Toilets and showers excellent clean good hot water. We ate at the mallard inn which is situated on the railway platform ! Good food and nice cosy pub. Could be noisy if football is at home.

Overall we enjoyed a three night stay on this site in late April. The site was, at best, only a third full - mainly motorhomes touring the highlands. In contrast we were a largish tent booked onto hardstanding with electric hookup. The only problem came from evening noise - v loud disco music - from a travelling fun fair on the neighbouring football ground car park. Great if you are thirteen but a bit of a nightmare to us oldies! We booked using the call centre the day before but were NOT warned of this in advance. Fortunately it didn't go on beyond 10 o'clock. The other sources of noise were 1. From the neighbouring railway line but the trains aren't frequent enough to be annoying. There was even a steam engine passing by on Sunday morning. 2. Ross County's football ground if there is a home match but we are talking of crowds of 3, 000 not Wembley Stadium.

The site is a little awkward to find - turn first left straight after the railway bridge. The wardens were friendly. The site is level, reasonably sheltered with new, and spotlessly maintained, facilities. Reception sells absolute essentials but Dingwall has a very large Tescos, including fuel, and a Lidl both a mile or so from the site. There is a nice walk along the canal into town, also ideal for dogs, with excellent views over the Cromarty Firth. Mobile reception good and the site wifi worked well.

Day trips: we went to Culloden battlefield, National Trust for Scotland but free if you have the English membership. This is a strange place - the battlefield itself with its memorial cairns is free access and very atmospheric but you pay for the new visitor centre. We found this interesting but probably not enough 'entertainment' for smaller children - a better bet is Urquhart Castle on Loch Ness if you have primary aged kids. In the afternoon we called in at Rosemarkie on The Black Isle to see the dolphins - again, the car park by the lighthouse has been recently tarted up but is still free. On the other side of The Black Isle you could easily see the cruise ships moored at Invergordon.

Lastly I must put in a good word for Tore services - a petrol station with a small shop and truckers cafe just off the A9. Don't be put off by appearances, it was both friendly and the best value mug of tea and slab of cake we had all trip whilst seated on a Starbucks style leather sofa!

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.
