Burnside is in a lovely setting close to Fochabers yet surrounded by woodland and a small stream. Fochabers has a great museum, garden centre, award winning chip shop, cafes and restaurants. The site mainly caters for static caravans but we found the regular visitors and staff very friendly. There were just 2 tents when we visited, ours and one other.

Reception was closed on arrival (Friday afternoon) but the manager was available by phone.

Facilities were adequate but a little down-at-heel looking, particularly the pool and changing area. Our overall impression was that too little money was being spent on maintenance. The shop is minimal but most things you would want can be found in the village.

We were very disappointed that the games room was locked for the duration of our 2-day stay.

There is a calendar of events for Saturday nights. On the Saturday of our stay, a resident of the static vans had booked the function room and a band to celebrate their anniversary. The music (loud and not very good) went on until midnight and kept us awake. We have a young daughter and didn't think this was appropriate for a site that looks at first glance to be family-friendly. The tent area is behind the function room.

A busy but very friendly site close to the small town of Fochabers which has all you need for shopping etc;

We stayed two nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. On the first night we were invited to a wedding anniversary function in the site bar. Everyone on site was invited as the hosts thought the noise may have been too much but by midnight everything was quiet.

Excellent for kids this site has a small pool for the youngsters.

The second day was spent at the local Highland games which is well worth a look.

I would stay again without a worry.

This is a busy very family friendly site. Access to this site is very good. It is right next to, what used to be the main road. Fortunately fochabers now has a by pass which runs near the site so its easy to get to but now far enough away that traffic noise is now at a minimum. Very easy to find.

On arrival the reception was clearly sign posted and easy to spot. However it was not very obvious where I should stop and park to go and see the warden without blocking the place. Perhaps a sign on arrival would help. So I parked up and the owners were very pleasant and helpful. They showed me to my pitch.

My pitch was gravel and grass. It was reasonably level. It had power, water, and a tv point. Pitches are not very large and quite close together. Reversing my van in would have been very difficult as all surrounding pitches were full. But I do have a large van and I didn't have to reverse because nearby campers were very keen to help us push our van into place. Great tv signal from the tv point.

The childs play area was very well equipped. Lots for kids to do and play with. Good quality play equipment in good condition.

Toilets are clean and well kept. Showers had a good flow and temperature control.

Swimming pool on site was very warm and clean. It is not a deep pool and very popular with the many children on site so anyone looking for serious swimming may be disappointed. Sauna and jacuzzi were great. I did feel it was a bit much having to pay for the pool after paying 25 a night for a pitch with an awning.

Fochabers is a very pleasant small town which is now a lot quieter now the bypass has been constructed. There are good places to eat. A good chippy and a good ice cream shop. The area has lots of nice woodland area with plenty of well established footpaths.

The downside for us on this site is that they offer no baby changing facilities. We found showering our 18 month old girl very difficult. Even in the disabled shower room which has ample space, there is nowhere to lay down baby after showering her. A simple wall mounted changing station would have made a huge difference for us.

To sum up this campsite I would say it is a great family caravan park. Although the price is at the high side I think the facilities available make it good value

Arriving after the kids had returned to school, this has turned out to be a delightful relaxing place to stay. The pitches are large, if a little close together. Pitch posts have water, EHU, drainage and TV as a bonus. Shower & Toilet facilities are spotless but probably due a refurb - the same goes for the swimming pool, jacuzzi & sauna. Fochabers is a lovely place which is ideal for exploring this beautiful part of the country - lots of dog walks to boot!

Will not go back to this site, the site was messy covered in litter, lots of dog mess left by site users on well used path that cuts through the tents area and a definite noise hazard until gone 11pm every night of our stay, little or no enforcement of any kind of rules. You are packed in like sardines with no defined pitch space for tents or any rules regarding space between pitches Location is good facilities reasonable,

We had a lovely 2 night stay at burnside our 2 kids enjoyed the play park and paddling in the little stream which was on the edge of the tent site. The toilet block was nice and clean and swimming pool fine n warm. There is a little ice cream shop in Fochabers with a great selection of flavours for cones. You can take a short walk to another play park in the town. We would definitely go back again.
