We booked for 2 nights and stayed 5. Lovely relaxed site with no silly rules.

2 unisex showers, but no need to worry as this works well. Older toilet blocks with 1 oldish shower in them - but all very clean.

5 min walk to shops, good walk to Chanonry Point and round to Rosemarkie's beach. Good swimming there for our dogs, and nice beachside cafe where you can sit outside with them.

Our 2nd visit to Forrose Bay Campsite, and it won't be our last.

What a fantastic site this is, directly on the shore of the Moray Firth with lovely views in all directions, and an easy 10 min walk into the centre of Fortrose with Pubs, Butchers, Bakers, Co-op etc. Don't let the fact there is a public road running through the site put you off, it is extremely quiet, (there is much more traffic on the one running through the Caravan & Camping site at Rosemarkie). The pitches are mainly grass, but very firm and well drained, you have a choice between more sheltered ones behind reception, still right on the shore with lovely views, or the much more open areas all along the front of the shore, all with hook ups. There are 2 toilet blocks, one each end of the site, both with one shower for each sex which are spotlessly clean, but for the luxury experience use the new unisex 'Shower Shack' beside reception, a heated building containing 2 shower rooms with large glass shower enclosures, electric showers with variable heat settings, (no buttons to press or timers) a large dressing area with a lovely wooden stool and lots of hooks for clothes and towels. A 20 minute level walk along the shore by the golf course takes you to Chanonry Point, the best place to see the Dolphins, which usually make an appearance at low tide, we even saw some from our pitch. Rosemarkie and the Fairy Glen are also both within walking distance. In the evening you can see the fishing boats out on the Firth. This was by far our favourite site on our round the coast Scottish tour, the lovely owners have got the balance just right, friendly and helpful but never in your face and this makes for a great relaxing site.

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
