We received a very friendly welcome and thoroughly enjoyed our stay, we had a lovely pitch and wonderful weather, which always helps, but the site was excellent and we will definitely visit again and would recommend it to others.
The summer flowers were lovely too and the friendly atmosphere was great
This site is set in amongst tall trees and adjacent to the busy A96. The road noise isn't bad if you are on a pitch on the far side of the site but it can still be heard in the background.
When we arrived it had been raining very heavily and there was a lot of standing water on the site road and quite a lot of the pitches. The warden was very helpful though and walked around with us to allow us to choose a dryish pitch large enough for our caravan and awning. With the rain stopped the site was almost dry the next morning so it does drain quickly.
The toilet facilities are basic, but adequate, and spotless. There is also a small play park for the kids and plenty of paths in the adjacent woods which we'd have like to have explored further. While we were there another camper saw a Pine Martin on the site early one morning but we weren't so lucky.
The site is convenient for visits to Inverness and beyond to the Balck Isle or Loch Ness. There's shops in Inverness or Nairn, which is closer, to top up on supplies.
The site is basic and could do with some attention in places but was relatively cheap. Despite my lowish score we'd be happy to visit it again, as long as the price stays low.
The site is well sheltered despite not being too far distant from the Moray firth and is well kept.
The children's play area was minimal and would only be suitable for very young ones. There is a games area in the main reception block where you can play table tennis & pool.
The site is really lovely with Delnies wood adjacent. There was a resident red squirrel that came to a feeder beside a static caravan each day and my son got some wonderful photographs.
There are some great walks from the site and the beach at Nairn is only approx 20 mins walk away, which given the time of year we went, found the experience quite bracing!
Be warned though, the site charges 50p each for every ice block that you deposit for freezing, which could work out expensive if you go non EHU and have a large coolbox!
The only other factor to consider if tent camping, is the A96 runs close by the site and the traffic noise can be a disturbance, although we found that we became accustomed to this as time went by and were more likely to be woken in the morning by the noise of the crows!
We had quite a lot of rain during our stay but the pitches seemed to cope well. The grass was sodden but not unbearable.
The toilet and shower block was very clean, but they shut from 11am-12:30pm for cleaning and there was no alternative facilities available.
All in all a nice site and only about 16 miles from Inverness. Nairn is about 2 miles away.
