We booked this site on the day and what a great find it was! We stayed for 2 nights on 6th and 7th August, towards the end of our 2 week trip around the Highlands and Islands of Scotland. How we wished we had time to stay longer!
There were plenty of nice walks where we could let our dog off the lead to roam around the beautiful, remote surroundings.
We were in a Motorhome and given a choice of pitch No. 12 or 2 and decided on pitch number 12 as it was more private, although we noticed pitch number 2 did have full sun all day and evening! The pitch was hardstanding and overlooked a lovely big duck pond with lilies growing in it and a bridge part way across. (I guess the pond could be one of the reasons this site doesn't allow children and is Adult Only?). I have to say, it was nice to sit back, relax and enjoy the peace and tranquility of the place without any children around.
The toilet and shower block we used was spotless and spacious with plenty of piping hot water and detachable shower heads! We noticed more toilet and shower blocks in the camping area in the wooded areas.
This was the cheapest site we stayed on and even had free wifi. The site even has fridge and freezer facilities for campers and I noticed a sign for laundry, although never went in to explore. The customer service was second to none and we felt that it was great value for money.
Will we go back? You bet we will and next time we will make sure it's for longer! Go on, give it a try - I'm sure you'll love it if its peace and quiet you're looking for!
A lovely site run by friendly and helpful owners. It is set on a wooded hillside with each pitch quite private with a picnic table and bench. The facilities were immaculate, modern, clean and warm. Though pitches were spread out it was only a minutes walk to the shower block. There are walks directly from the site, brilliant for walking the dog. It is a short drive to Fort Augustus where we had a great day watching the boats, walking along the canal and stocking up on provisions.
This site was brilliant, views were wonderful, facilities immaculate and owners so helpful.
A bit different to most sites in that the pitches are well spread out across a hillside - you have a lot of privacy and are close to nature. Beautiful views. Well away from anywhere - though not too far (by road) from places to eat or get supplies.
Excellent if you have a dog, there are good dog walks straight from the site, including a very nice, fairly level, 3/4 hour (each way) walk to Loch Lundie, where the dog can be off the lead most of the way - and have a swim when you get there!
Good, clean, facilities blocks (though the spread-out nature of the site means that some pitches have a bit of a treck to get there). One negative: the grey water disposal is combined with the chemical toilet disposal and is almost unusable if you have a large (wheeled) grey water container. Free wifi. Friendly owners. We didn't find midges to be a particular problem here, in late June. Good value for money. Recommended.
I spent two nights at this site, and I can honestly say its one of the best I have ever stayed at. The owner is very friendly, there is a fridge and freezer, the pitches have picnic benches at each one, the area this place is situated is stunning. The road leading to this site is of a good surface, and only a short distance from the main road. The shower blocks/toilets are immaculate. This site does offer peace and quiet, I never heard any music at all whilst I was there, something which has ruined my stay at other sites is listening to other peoples noise. I was on my motorcycle, and the price of £6. 50 per night was fair. I will return for sure to Faichemard Farm, as its a gem.
Had a wonderful stay here at this beautifully laid out site. We parked fairly close to the toilet block, still reasonably private, pitches are very spacious and each came with its own picnic table, which is a real bonus. The shower, whilst basic is good and hot and roomy! We booked for 3 days and stayed for 10.
Around and about is a lot of good walking, good footpaths, well marked and good underfoot. Fort Augustus is close by, lots of coffee shops and tourist stuff but no real food shops worth going to. The only downside is the distance to a decent supermarket but Tesco deliver so next time we visit we will do an online shop!
The whole place is amazing, if you don't want peace and quiet then it's not for you.
