Been to this site couple of times. Changed ownership last year and has had a upgrade. Toilet blocks upgraded. New shower block. Very friendly wardens. Spectacular views.

20 a night dogs free. (the Caravan and camping club is 30 a night). Used to be free WiFi. Now it's 2. 50 a day. Go into plough pub in Rosemarkie. It's free and fast.

TV signal ok. O2 Mobil is ok too.

The dolphins at Channory point is good viewing. The carpark has been reconfigured. Think there's less space now. But in peak times free park and ride bus to Fortrose. You can walk to Channory point from Fortrose campsite 30 mins along coast.

Would definitely return again. Good site price.

This site is under new management and couldn't be faulted in any way.

The couple that run it are just so friendly and helpful and nothing is a problem.

It is so clean and tidy and well maintained.

Local area has lots to see and do and good selection of shops, pubs, butcher, cafe, chip shop and restaurant.

Short walk to Chanonry point to see dolphins from the beach, short walk to Rosemarkie with a lovely sandy beach, cafe, shop, restaurant and pub.

We have just spent 5 nights at this site - we moved from Rosemarkie so we could have a 'sea front' pitch & use our canopy. Rachel welcomed us, provided a free map of the Black Isle & explained the locations of the necessary facilities on the site.

Stunning views - pleasant mile walk to Chanonry point where we did see the dolphins as well as a variety of sea & shore birds.

Dolphins & otters were also visible at times from the caravan.

Facilities are old but very clean although there are not many showers for the size of the site.

Looking forward to a return visit next year.

Booked this site for 3 nights and was bowled over with stunning location so stayed for 5, right on the front, short walk to lighthouse to see the dolphins they did not disappoint back to site, has just had new owners who are doing all the right things facilities are old but well maintained all ways clean an earlier poster states no MH point there is it, s along side second gents toilets so no problems for MH, s the CCC along the road at Rosemarkie will have to improve in both price and their welcome to guest, s or lose out to Fortrose

PS campers kitchen has sinks, microwave, washing machine, dryer and ironing board

We spent three nights here at the start of our highlands tour. Very friendly welcome and we were given a map of the Black Isle and information about the area. It's a short walk to Chanonry Point where you will see dolphins on the turn of the tide. We saw seals from the site.

10 minute walk up to the village where there are a couple of pubs, a restaurant and fish and chip shop. Reasonable sized co-op and butcher and baker.

Facilities were clean and free showers.

The only downside to this site is that there is a road going straight through the camping area. It's not a very busy road and most cars go slowly but I would be a bit concerned if camping with small children.

We arrived at the C&CC site to be told they were full for the weekend and they suggested we try Fortrose Bay site.

We did, they fitted us in but they too were full by 3pm on the Friday afternoon.

The site is set out on a long strip of grass along the shore, some tent pitches on the side of the road furtherest from the sea, the rest on the sea side.

Pitches were defined by marker posts, there seemed to be a fair bit of confusion as to whether units should be parked in the middle of the markers or to one side (the details pinned outside reception showed to park with the driver side to the post but to be fair many wouldn't have read that).

The loos and showers were old but have to say have found very few places where they are kept cleaner - spotless in the ladies by reception at all times. The shower in there was good and hot, decent pressure and not on a push button.

There is a water fill for motorhomes at the endof the first pitch section, no drive over empty point but several grey water dumps. Chem disp at the rear of the facilities block and ehu on all pitches.

Wifi is available for 2. 50 per 24 hours, pay direct on line not to the site.

The village of Fortrose is less than 10 minutes easy walk, a butchers, two bakers, a couple of cafes and a small supermarket. We loved the Fortorse Cafe, great scones, super friendly staff and good coffee.

There is bound to be comparisons between the Rosemarkie and Fortrose sites, we found them very similar in terms of both have a great location, old but immaculate facilities and fab owners / wardens.
