Immaculately maintained with friendly and helpful staff, as on most Camping Club sites. The site is basically a strip of grass alongside the Moray Firth with splendid views of Fort George and the sea. Good viewing of dolphins along the beach at the lighthouse, best on an incoming tide. The site is open to bad weather, especially from the east and suffers from a public road running through the middle, which can make campers feel a bit goldfish-like and insecure because of a lack of fences and barriers. Ideal location for touring, but the facilities need expanding - just 6 showers (3 male and 3 female) for the whole site!

Fantastic Site - We arrived on Friday for a three night stay. The pitches are all grass but well maintained and hookups easy to administer. The site offers two rows of pitches with a central access route. All pitches offer outstanding views across the ocean which is just a few metres away. The toilet/washing/cleaning blocks are excellent albeit due to their size, it may get a bit 'queued' during high season. The site staff are excellent and extremely helpful. Ten minutes walk in any direction takes you into either Fortrose or Rosemarkie. Villages provide all the facilities, restaurants/take away outlets, and shops needed. Eateries are outstanding. Great for kids due to local facilities and only a short drive from Inverness if required. Two breweries nearby along with historical and natural attractions. Can't wait to get back for a longer break. 10/10.

The amenities blocks were all closed at the same time each morning for cleaning although thick cobwebs were in evidence above the entrance door to the male toilets on the main site.

I had booked our stay 2 to 3 months prior to our arrival. I made the booking through C&CC Central Reservations and when asked if I had any preferences regarding our pitch, I asked for a pitch with sea views, near an amenity block and with room for a porch awning. When we arrived we were informed 'it, s either that pitch without an awning

(sea view) or this one with an awning (second row adjacent to road)- make your minds up and let us know which one your taking'.

Don, t think I, ll be rushing back.

This is a must-visit for the wild-life enthusiast, offering the opportunity - though not guaranteed - to see a pod of dolphins feeding close-up from the nearby Chanonry point, also seals further out in the Moray Firth. Also, the pitches are arranged along the shore to provide panoramic views of the Firth. The staff were welcoming and helpful, otherwise the site has few attractions, the pitches being small, the on-site facilities tired and limited (though clean) and there being little in the way of decent pubs or restaurants in easy walking distance. But we will definitely go again for a chance to see those dolphins.

A superb site with superb friendly staff, the toilet blocks are dated but the showers wash cubicles & loos are fine - the showers being electric so no cool shower as the hot water runs out, they are always clean - entry by code to keep non campers out as a footpath runs between the beach and site and the road to the village bisects the site, this was never a problem ie no speeding & no noisy walkers - be aware that access laws in Scotland allow the public to walk thro the site. The grass piches were a mix of level and those needing ramps/ blocks but nothing too far to be used. The Dolphins- they were the principle reason for going & BOY WERE WE IN FOR A TREAT, morning and night for a week we watched/ filmed/ photographed them along with seals and an otter. Mornings are better as there are fewer people there jostling to get a view, they were as close as 15 metres to the shore, take warm clothing as it does get chilly, there are some picnic benches in front of the lighthouse and you can get mobility scooters to them from the car park by the lighthouse, otherwise walk down the beach or golf course. Swimming is a no no from the spit& in front of the site but ok by the village Wildlife Boat rides varied between 15 & 30 per person - talking to a lady on the beach who went out on the R I B everyday it appears that standing on the spit in front of the Lighthouse on Chanonry Point was just as good. Units without an awning or tents were pitched on the front row overlooking the beach/bay whilst units with an awning were pitched behind them but staggered so as to be able to see between the front row. We can't comment on the Rosemarkie shops etc as we didn't go there but the Coop in Fortrose was fine, we did go into Inverness to Lidl and Tesco, couldn't find Asda with the in car satnav though. ENJOY!

Apart from the attraction of the Dolphins this site really is a rip-off. It has sixty pitches on two sites, with a road in between. All pitches are grass and there is no site security. To access the beach from the far end of the site means crossing that road, which can see some undisciplined driving. More than one dog had a narrow escape during our eight night stay.

When we rang the site, some three weeks before we arrived we were told that there were no pitches available, but going onto the C&C Club web site a day or two later I did manage to get a booking for a 'large' grass pitch. (But not overlarge and a thoroughfare for others walking to the village or the beach). At 29. 30 a night it was an utter rip-off, but was our only option.

The rear facilities block had a tired air - only one shower each side and only two loos - but three vanity sinks!. This was inadequate amongst 30 pitches. There was no alternative available when the blocks were being cleaned, other than going 200 mfrs down the road to the other part of the site. As expected for a Club site, the facilities were always clean. Only the front part of the site has recycling facilities - but does NOT take glass.

Rosemarkie itself has a tired pub, an expensive Bistro, a greasy spoon beach snack bar and a golf club. Oh yes, walk along to Chanonry point about 2-3 hours after high tide and you have a fair chance of catching the dolphins as they chase fish. Females and young do come within about 20 mfrs of the beach - but it can be blowy - go prepared!

Fortrose has a Co-op mini-market that seems quite all stocked, a decent pub, a Coffee shop and the Eilean Dubh restaurant. We have been there before, but it must have changed hands and is aiming at a more up-market clientele - hence fancy food with fancy prices and only three tables taken (one on spec) when we visited.

It is eight years since we last visited Rosemarkie; I don't see it being less before we go again!
