Just stayed 3 nights here and wow the views were stunning. The owners and also the young man who assisted with us getting a fantastic pitch on the edge of the moray firth were so helpful and nothing was a problem. Just one tip. Take cash to pay your fees as no card payment facility, however this was not a problem as there was cashpoints in fortrose. Yes the toilet facilities were outdated and only 1 shower, however, I never had to queue yet and the water was really hot. Lots of lovely restaurants, takeaways and walks near by. We were on our first trip with our 10 week puppy and he also enjoyed the trip. We will certainly be back very soon
Stayed here for 1 week last July, what can I say I didn't want to leave, weather was fab. Caravan pitch was big and the views where amazing. My trip here was just to sea the wild and free dolphins. Day 1 went to chanory point no dolphins :( day 2 No dolphins :( day 3 while eating my breakfast and looking out of my caravan window I saw something LEAP out of the water, SCREAMING to my Hubby DOLPHINS LOL WOW AMAZING. That day we where told to go to Chanory point 5 min drive away to see the dolphins up close. Go 2 hours before high tide. You wont be disappointed. We saw 20 or so Dolphins with baby leaping out of the water and feeding FANTASTIC I would never go and see a dolphin in a stupid tank. See them wild and free just like they should be. Anyway did I mention the Dolphins lol. The owners of the site sorry I forgot your names, bit they where lovely people. Who gives a monkeys uncle if there is only 1 shower. I never had to wait to use it. Off site there are plenty of shops to fill your fridge with booze. No space left for food lol. Joking not :)All in all me the hubby and my baby boy milo/dog had a fantastic time and going back this year last week in july I think.
Stayed in a tent at this campsite, all pitches electric and very roomy. Plenty of space for large tent and big car. Toilet block not to far from any pitch, is tired but perfectly functional and although there is just one shower, I didn't have to queue once. Bring hair dryer and straighteners as there are power points in the toilet block and in the kitchen plus a handy microwave.
For pitching, it can get VERY windy, best for tents on the pitches further from the shore. A gazebo will survive if it has a wind bar and good quality guy ropes. Windbreaks should have guy ropes at least to be any use.
Rock pegs are essential for these pitches, very stoney and I strongly recommend them.
Open fires, BBQ's are permitted and is especially nice on the stony beach.
Fortrose is a short walk away if you follow the road away from reception, turn left, newsagents and a delicious chippy. Turn right and drive 5mins down towards the lighthouse and you can see the dolphins playing fairly close to shore usually just before high tide.
I did feel the site fee was a bit high for tents but it seems to just be expensive to camp all across the Black Isle.
First time out ever with caravan thought I would keep it local. First choice was Rosemarkie (just 500m away from Fortrose) but club site was full so tried Fortrose instead despite reviews on here which are a tad unkind. Yes the toilets could do with a refit but they're perfectly fine for their intended purpose. Don't be put off. The benefits otherwise are many. Choice of spot, almost all on the shore front. All with electric hook up. Owners laid back and welcoming (in a stoic highland sort of way) think of Andy Murrays grandparents. The best bit and surely the whole point of caravanning; relaxing with plenty of space for kids. Rosemarkie by comparison looked cramped and industrial ( I walked over to check). I'm sure it's not, just appeared that way. My tuppence worth. Oh, it was a reasonable £25 per night no concession. Local tip; chip shop is very good as is little shop both 10 min walk away (straight on after the school path, not left as all others did )
Great beach setting on grass 4ft above spring tide highest water if you like a full moon max high tide. Great view across inner Moray Firth.
However, this year, our visit was not value for money. £20 per night for facilities which need a serious upgrade and damn good clean. We had just come from a caravan club site where we paid fair amount less for immaculate facilities and fantastic beach.
Site owners, please fix the missing tiles in the only shower in the ladies, scrub the mould out of the cracks and wash the floor in the laundry/kitchen. One microwave does not make it a kitchen. The vintage wringer on its trestle was an interesting period feature. We weren't happy about having to drive over our, and others, mains hook-up cables to reach our 'van.
