A nice little caravan site that houses a lot of static caravans but many were not occupied during the week that we were there.

Owners really friendly and always on site.

The pitches are not level and it took us a while to get our unit level, some of the motor homes who came to the pitch next to us abandoned that pitch and moved to another. Pitches are allocated by the owner and initially we were confused as to why what looked like the prime pitches right on the river and level were not being given out. The night before we left (Fri) saw the site fill up and these pitches were used, there was very little space there and some of the motor homes were struggling to get in out.

Anyone is welcome including work vans and caravans in need of some repair, this did mean that there was noise early in the morning as the workers were leaving for walk.

Facilities were dated but spotless and I liked the radio playing in the background.

Laundry on site was adequate but only 1 washer and dryer with token bought from the owner.

Nice dog walk available although another camper told us about this not the owner. Nice walk into Elgin with Asda and Tesco Supermarkets.

A good base for exploring Speyside and the Whisky Trail.

This is a hidden gem, lovely site very friendly the site is on the river. There is a small play area. Toilet and showers very clean. There is a bus outside of the site. Or 15 main walk into Elgin lovely town, caught the bus and spent the day in Nairn. Went for a walk on the riverside. My husband loves fishing so early in the mornings he was at the river. Was booked for 2 nights at 15 a night very good. Ended up staying for another night. Enjoyed it so much hope to go back in 2weeks time for the weekend.

As our last trip of our first season this was a very pleasant campsite.

Although it appears to be predominantly static caravans, there are a reasonable number of pitches for visitors too.

The facilities were excellent with spotless toilets and showers and as previously commented on, a nice little walk around the site for our dog.

The site is well placed for lots of tourist activities from visiting the nearby beaches at Lossiemouth to taking in the whisky trail.

It is also well placed to take a train trip into Inverness for those in need of some retail therapy.

To be honest we were not expecting very much from the main road it looked very small, but as we pulled in it opened up to a very well maintained site, the owner came out to greet and welcome us.

We don't ask for much from any site as long as there is a walk for our dog and that the toilets are clean, we could not fault them on both accounts, the walk was great a well sign posted round the site and dog bins (most sites have a lack of these)the friendly horses in the next field were a nice surprise.

The toilets were very clean, tiles a bit dated but very clean never the less, showers were new and immaculate.

Lots of wild life round the river and an abundance of quite tame rabbits running through the site

There is no doubt that we will return.

Small well kept site, beside river and woodlands. Very clean toilets. Showers hot but slow water flow. The shop has very very few items.

There are a good number of privately owned static caravans and a lot of the pitches for tourers are rented as 'all year' pitches, so best to book, as it is a busy site.

Bus stop at entrance to the site. There is a hotel across the road, with leisure facilities. The road is extremely busy and if turning right, you may have to wait some time, due to heavy traffic. We found this to be a very friendly site.

Just back from a few days break at this quiet site.

Good points -

Easy access to day trips such as the promenade park at Nairn, the beautiful beach at Findhorn, great walk at Culbin were you can climb a tower to see a fantastic view over the Moray Firth, we saw seals at Port Gordon and dolphins at Channory Point (get info from Seal & Dolphin centre at Spey Bay which was worth a visit and has a nice coffee shop)and shore walk at Findochtry. All these activities are free and the campsite was very reasonable at 16 per night for 2 adults, 2 kids & dog.

Near good selection of places to eat & lots of supermarkets.

Not so good -

Shower block needs updating as lighting poor, mens showers very basic & some tiling needs repairing.

Not particularly child friendly if kids over 10 - owner chased our kids from the park having just walked past us - we would have preferred she say something to us directly rather than greet us then moan at kids.
