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.

This site is in a lovely location and we found it to be relaxing, welcoming and well maintained.

Overlooking the Moray Firth, with easy access from Inverness it is a great base for exploring the Black Isle which we did on our bikes - the roads were quiet, views beautiful and hills challenging. The small town is an easy walk away and there are some shops, cafes and a hotel/bar serving food.

From checking in we were made to feel very welcome, encouraged to choose our own pitch, which was very quiet and given information and leaflets about the area.

Although the small toilet/shower block at reception was not modern, it was well maintained and clean and the new unisex shower block is very spacious and well designed.

Would highly recommend, and would definitely return.

As with at least one previous reviewer we had always stayed at the nearby Rosemarkie CCC site. This year, however, we had a few problems with their running of the site so we resolved to try Fortrose Bay. Suffice it to say that it is highly unlikely we will ever stay anywhere else on the Black Isle from now on. Mike and Rachel are extremely friendly and welcoming - nothing is too much trouble. The site is peaceful, clean and tidy; the views across the Moray Firth are superb and we can only think of it as our 'little piece of heaven'.

We love this site. We must do as we have just returned from our 8th or 9th visit in as many years.

Under new ownership, we'll look forward to seeing the changes that will be undertaken. But also hope that it basically stays as it is, a lovely unspoiled site that has steered away from all singing all dancing facilities. There is no play park for children. But you have a great pebble beach, where both our children [now teenage] spend hours. The position, views and wildlife are what help make this site one our absolute favorites.

The facilities are still spotless, even though the site was full and the weather not that great.

Fortrose has a co-op, bakery, fish and chip shop, cafe, restaurant and beautiful jewellery shop.

For wildlife head up to Chanory and hopefully you'll get to see famous dolphins, if you time it for after low tide [when it is on the turn]. You'll be in great company with a good crowd all there cameras poised.

There is a fantastic walk up past Eathie mains down a steep but proper track that leads to a beach where when the tide is out, you can fossil hunt [head right when you reach the bottom and head round the headland a bit].

There is so much to see and do in the area, but you can also get across to the west coast, so a day trip to Applecross up and over the Bealach na Ba is a must for us for lunch at The Applecross inn.

Even storms don't stop us coming to this site [and we've weathered a couple here now]. We will return again next year.

This is a lovely site in a great position next to a pebble beach. We are in the middle of a 12 night stay here and it is so relaxing and peaceful, as I sit writing this a seal has just swam past the caravan towards chanonry point which is a 20 minute walk away and where we spent a good hour this morning watching the Dolphins, having seen them on 4 out of 5 days so far. We have good views down to Inverness which is about 14 miles away and it is 30 to 40 minute drive to Loch Ness. The site has two toilet blocks and though the block closest to us has just one male and one female shower they seem to cope well even when the site is busy. The new owners are friendly and helpful and we will return if we venture this far north again!

Everything good previously I can vouch for. I have camped up the road at the CCC site for the past near on thirty years. But will in future be booking this site the welcome is a lot warmer and the the pitches not as worn out. The other point is this site is not regimental as the other. Facilities were very clean but old.

Will recommend this site to anybody and wish the new owners all the best, looking forward to returning.
