This was our third stay at this site because it is very handy for visiting Inverness and for travelling North to Wick or going West to Poolewe. It also gives us the option of returning home to Stirling either via the A82 or the A9.

I do not know what the toilets/showers are like because we always us our own facilities.

The pitches are well spaced out and there is a good mix of hard standings and grass with plenty of water taps and bins. TV reception is not the best and you might need your own aerial as the new built in one on our caravan (2014 Elddis) is not much good in poor signal areas.

There is a railway line near the park but it has never bothered us nor has Ross County Football Park which you have to pass on the entrance road.

Dingwall has a Tesco with fuel and a Lidl, one of the best hardware stores I have seen, butchers, bakers, banks and a very posh gents outfitters together with pubs etc. If there are not enough shops here for you there are plenty in Inverness 11 miles South.

On our last visit there were new wardens who were friendly and I understand they will be back next year.

NEW MANAGERS this year so its all hands to the pumps!

The club seems to have spent all my subs on flowers. Grass well cut and site is popular with elderly locals. Tesco adj as is a railway line and football stadium!

Rosiemarkie might make a better choice

The beach is good for walking dogs and the village has a pub and chip shop

We chose this site as a one night stopover on our way up to catch a ferry to the orkneys - I'd read reviews so was a little concerned but thought as it was only for one night we could put up with general shabbiness etc. So it was a really delightful surprise to arrive and see an immaculately neat and tidy site, with possibly the friendliest managers I've met at any site - they are a couple who took over this year and have worked hard since January to get it to what they feel is a good enough standard (and their standards are high!). F or that reason only one of the two showers in the ladies is open, as the second one still had to be refurbished. There are nice personal touches everywhere, like fresh flowers in the shower block and planters full of flowers round the site.

There are further improvements that will be made, like making access to the motorhome water tap easier (inherited problems) but even as the site is now it's a lovely little site. It's ideal for dog owners as there is a lovely walk that goes from just outside the site all along the river.

This site has the biggest discrepancy, in a good way, between what I was expecting and what I actually got, the managers have already worked a minor miracle in transforming this site, so I'd happily return there any time.

Stayed at this site for 1 night while up in dingwall for the football. Site is right next to the global energy stadium which makes this 1 of the best locations in the country as a travelling fan ( could see our motorhome from inside the stadium!)

Now for the site itself, on arrival at 11. 30am we were told we were to early for our 12pm check in. I pointed out that as I had drove 3. 5hrs and as we had booked a grass pitch with no facilities and paid for the pitch online there was no real need for us to check in just park up (site was about 1/3 full) after about 10mins warden decided that would be ok?

Site very run down and could do with a complete make over!

Had a few drinks in the Viking and Mallard both seem like nice pubs. Apart from that never seen much of Dinwall. Our sole purpose of this trip was for the football and location for this is 100%

We will return again for the football and not for the site or its poor facilities

It could be a gem, have written to the CCC about this site. Situated as it is, indeed it is the gateway to the highlands. However, despite the hard working efforts of the manager and his wife, the whole site needs a make over. The fences are rotten, the roads are breaking up and the electrics are in need of an upgrade. The toilet and showers are clean but so old and worn even the best efforts of the staff cannot persuade me to use them. On a positive note, the town is an easy walk away, Tesco's sell diesel at a decent price and there are shops and bakeries on the high street for a pleasant browse. Train station is a 10 minute walk away and can be used to access other parts of the highlands.

A bit dated this Site as other reviewers have noted. There are 2 toilet & shower blocks, one, centrally located, with washing facilities and pass code locked, the other is very small in one corner but is not locked. Both are clean enough but need updating. I am also constantly surprised that, the further North I seem to go, the more Site owners feel a need to have uncovered washing facilities.

The neighbouring Global Energy Stadium, home of Ross County FC was having a full scale pitch replacement so there was a lot of earthmoving & construction work going on from fairly early on in the morning.

TV reception was poor and trains trundle along one side (opposite to the football ground).

On the positive side, the site is well managed by helpful staff and is located just outside town. Dingwall itself looks like a traditional, if quiet little town but is well placed to get across to Ullapool for the afternoon Ferry to Stornoway.
