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.

We have just returned from a long weekend at Burnside. We have a 6 man tent although only 2 of us went. We hooked up to the electric point right next to the tent.

The camping area is to the side and round the back of the reception building. There was some beautiful spots around the back of reception with a stream running past. Unfortunately our large tent was too big to pitch round the back of reception, so we chose an area to the right of reception.

Despite the torrential rain the whole weekend our pitch must have had the best drainage ever! We were still dry come Monday morning!

The site itself is beautiful! Very picturesque! Lovely walks along the river/stream that runs through the site. The wardens were most helpful and nothing other than pleasant - very homely!

Now to the showers/toilets. Immaculate, the ladies toilets were pristine to say the least! Ample toilet cubicles, 2 separate showers (mira showers and a separate wet room with it's own toilet and vanity sink! This is the first time I have ever camped and the toilets had gas central heating in them! Sheer luxury!

The dishwashing facilities on site for campers was always clean and the 2 extra large sinks was ample for the campsite.

The shop on site was very minimal but to be fair the shops in Fochabers were within walking distance. We walked into town on Saturday night through the well lit pathway through the woods leading from the campsite.

Only one thing I would say was that there was a fair bit of traffic noise from the main road which runs along the top of the site. Although on saying that, earplugs dulled out most of the noise.

There is also a log cabin in amongst the camping pitches which was lit up at night with portable BBQ's for campers to use - very quaint - even though the BBQ's were all one-legged! But it was October when we went so I'd say the BBQ's had survived a long busy summer!

We didn't venture into the swimming pool but did have a look. Very pleasantly surprised at how big it was! As per the rest of the site, it was clean, as was the sauna room and jacuzzi!

We are definitely intending going back to this site - can't fault it! Highly recommended!
