Lovely river but not much of a view for us as the hook up pitch had a tent directly in front of us and a holiday chalet directly behind us!

The owners were really lovely people and told us the hotel up the hill was dog friendly. So we wandered up there in our rather grubby walking gear and finished up having a scrummy dinner in a rather posh bar. The owner offered to put our dogs in his office so we could sit in the restaurant! All the other guests were immaculately turned out and we looked like the poor relations, but everybody was so welcoming - well worth a visit.

Sadly we found the campsite facilities rather lacking, including running out of soap and toilets rolls. Old and not as clean as I would have liked - couldn't bring myself to use the shower. And please Martyn pick up the grass cuttings! Our motorhome and the toilets etc were full of them.

Would we go back? Probably not, which is a great shame as the site had so much potential and a bit more TLC would make a huge difference.

Don't know how come the people who stayed in August only paid 7 we were charged 17!

We loved this site. We arrived for a week and stayed for two. The riverside location is a delight and the views are great.

There's easy access all directions to loads of things to see and do. Lots of excellent forest walks just over the road. Rogie falls are very near, as is Strathpeffer and Inverness is very convenient too.

The facilities were just fine. This is not a big posh site and the reasonable prices reflect. Everything was clean and functional, lots of hot water, clean loos and showers, frequently replenished loo rolls, hand towels, hand soap (these basic things often get overlooked).

There's a large football ground adjacent for children/dogs to run around.

Very well stocked shop open till 7 p. M just at the entrance.

The owners, Martyn and Deborah, were welcoming and extremely helpful.

We saw the Heron but, sadly, not the otter.

All-in-all we would not hesitate to recommend a stay at Riverside.

We last visited this site twenty years ago. It was closed for a long time and is now under new ownership.

The site is by a pleasant river. So the midges can be fierce. But the location is worth it. It is a small site with basic facilities. But they include hot water and showers in the fee of 7 a night. There is a small shop just outside.

Martin and Barbara are helpful and friendly. Now on our repeat list.

We dropped into this lovely little site for one night and ended up staying for 3. Nothing fancy but everything we needed or wanted. Our visit coincided with the tail end of hurricane Bertha so we mostly hunkered down and watched the river rise and the owners fight a never ending battle with the mud being trodden into the showers. A perfect base for exploring this part of Scotland and a well stocked village shop at the site entrance help make this a perfect stop for any length of stay.

Lovely little site. Local store right by the entrance carrying most things you will need. Gorgeousness views over the river and into the hills and mountains beyond.

Relaxed pitching allowing you to chose your location with mindful respect to other campers.

Gazebo provided for this with smaller tents to use for eating/cooking etc if the weather takes a turn.

Ground is very rocky (to be expected by a river) so my only advice would be to take a selection of spare pegs. The investment in a few pegs is well worth the views and relying atmosphere.

Great base for visiting the attractions of Scotland. Loch Ness not far away, easy access to the whisk yep trails and the moray tourist routes. Jon-o-groats a nice run out up the A9 which you are on within a few minutes of leaving the site.

I especially liked the toilets where each 'cubicle' is kore of a room with your own sink and mirror allowing you to get ready in private in the mornings :)

Inverness is half an hour away if you need anything major whilst away.

Would definitely come back here and stay for longer next time, there is so much more I would like to do in the area.

Nicely located at the side of the river. Very adequate if slightly eccentric facilities for ablutions, laundry and dishwashing, which are all regularly inspected and cleaned. Local shop and garage within immediate vicinity. Very helpful and friendly management. Would not hesitate to stop there again.
