Visited by accident as we thought they did not take dogs. THEY DO. Was in town to play indoor bowls and were going to another site further away. Warden was very friendly and welcoming. Site had originally been under control of Aberdeenshire Council but they were getting rid of them. Warden explained that a local consortium had taken it over and it was the first day they had opened. The Council had only sent them details of site and bookings that day so they were a bit disorganised. However we were made very welcome. Only 4 units on the site plus the warden mainly due to the recent wintry weather. We were lucky and enjoyed good sunny weather although quite cold. The site is right at the end of the beach with fab views. Next to the site is a fish factory but we never were aware of any smell of fish. The toilet, showers etc were very modern, clean and lots of hot water. Near to the High St and carry out food shops, bars etc. As the site was quiet the warden gave us access to the gate as we were visiting friends and could be late. The next day we met other wardens who were every bit as friendly and helpful. I certainly will return as we had a very enjoyable three days. Thanks

This site is only a very short walk from town and is virtually on the beach and with a big Tesco just a 5 minute walk away it really is in a very convenient location.

The facilities are a bit dated but very functional nonetheless. There are showers, a toilet block and laundry room as well as a washing up sink all of which were kept extremely clean by the friendly wardens.

Personally I felt that the pitches were rather close together it did not matter a lot as it quiet in the camping area.

The cost was very reasonable and overall this is a good site. The only negative is that it borders on a fish processing factory so if you are not keen on the smell of fish it may be best avoided. Personally I expect I will be back.

This was my first camping adventure and I really enjoyed my stay here. The warden was very friendly and helpful, going out of his way to ensure I had plenty of information about the area.

There are limited facilities on site, though this didn't affect me as I was away during the days and didn't have children with me. There is a lovely beach within yards of the site and the local town is within walking distance.

The site was clean and tidy, the toilet and shower facilities were more than sufficient for the number of people on site.

Other campers and caravaners were friendly and cheerful, leading to a nice relaxing atmosphere.

I will definitely visit here again.

Excellent warden, nice clean well cared for shower/toilet block. But.
The Youngs sea food factory within 10 foot of the site was smelly, and very noisy very early, so close you could hear the workers talking as they walked from one part of the factory to another.
The town was run down and at night full of boy racers, super beaches and good stop off point but wouldn't want to stop for more than a couple of days.

TomTom didn't take us to site entrance, suggest you get directions as we did. Location is on the shore line with great sea views. It's run by local council & warden isn't on site much of the time, however if he knows you're coming he allocates pitch & leaves key for toilets. Security is poor with local youths walking through site. Youngs fish factory is next door & can smell. Having said that we really enjoyed our stay & would go there again. Tesco's & Aldi are close by.

Have been staying on this site every summer since I was born in 1970! Not up to the standards of the CC sites we normally use but we return again and again - the reason - well we have made a lot of friends in the town.

The site itself is basic and relatively expensive. Only encountered mud on the site twice - summer 2007 and prior to that about 1985. It needs a lot of rain to get the sandy soil in this site mucky.

The view of the beach and the sea is spectacular. The view of the adjacent fish factories is not so good, but at least they don't smoke fish anymore as they did every afternoon in the 80's.

Locally there is plenty to see. The lighthouse museum and the heritage centre to name but two.

The local heritage and dialect is unmissable.

Most recent site manager is good and facilities are much cleaner than they were a few years ago.
