A favourite site of ours, only 30 minutes from home but here we get straight from the site and onto the beach. And what a beach, a wide expanse of clean sand, sand dunes to the rear, the small fishing village ( with fresh fish shop)of Sandend to the left. At the far right end of the beach are the remains of a WW2 gun emplacement. The beach and bay are very popular with surfers. The site itself is quite compact with a mix of statics, tourers & tents. The pitches are all of the grass type the majority of which have EHU. The showers & toilets are kept spotlessly clean by a lady who ensures this several times a day. As this is a seasonal site the facilities are not heated which is fine most of the time but can feel a bit chilly on an underpar summers evening. The showers are card operated, one is given several of these upon arrival. There is a small shop offering the basics plus a selection of beach toys and goods. The owners are extremely welcoming and very helpful too. A short walk to the east is the Glenglassaugh Distillery. To the west are the remains of Findlater Castle. Also close by is the very picturesque village of Fordyce which is well worth visiting. A lovely site, many of its visitors are regulars which itself speaks volumes.

A good clean site that is well kept and tidy.

Stunning beach literally on the door step with Cullen and Portsoy handy for shops.

There was a large party of tenters the evening we arrived and our worries about noise were proven right. However the campsite owner did come out a number of times to try and quell the noise. I suspect we weren't the only ones who didn't appreciate a party.

Sandend and the Genreal area is without doubt a 5 star location and really goes without saying but our first 3 night stay at the park was somewhat dissapointing in a few areas.

My first Gripe was the very Risky narrow hedge that runs very close togeather at the Entrance to the park. This Hedge should either be trimmed right back or completely removed as there is a real risk of scratching or damaging the side of your caravan and or vehicle. I really don't see the hedges purpose on the site.

The Site was quiet when we arrived with only a few Tourers with Families on tow, None of the pitches were marked with markers and had to be shown by the very nice lady where to put the drivers side of the van against which was a stone slap level with the grass.

The Chemical toilet discharge area was not the best with a meter or so length of hose which was burst in 2 places and a tap that leaked badly and when trying to wash out my portable toilet the water was splashing every where. I feel a simple repair or replacement hose would have made this tedious job much easier.

The Grass around many of the Statics was very long and not well kept at all and I feel the grass around the site was longer than necessary and not that well kept.

There is a Wooded area at the back of the site where the exit road runs next to and we had to take the caravan and truck on to the grass to avoid long branches and shrubbery that could have again scratched the van and or truck. This should be cut right back or removed as I see no purpose for it.

I never saw any wardens on the site the 3 days we were their.

Finally the site is very expensive and had I known about a fully serviced pitch on a site that was immaculate with a shop manned daily at 2 pounds cheaper per night I would have opetd for that.

Great Location Nice people, but not as well kept as it could be.

Excellently run site, spacious pitches, toilets and showers spotless, cleaned at least three times a day by a very busy lady all facilities available and kept scrupulously clean and spot on.

Beautiful safe beach, ideal for the whole family, extremely child friendly site.

Small shop on site with some basics and more local shops with in three miles at most.

Owners could not be more helpful and we will definitely go back next year

Owners very friendly and welcoming.

Campsite in a stunning location a few meters from a lovely Sandy beach, with a lovely coastal walk at the end of beach also a lovely wee harbour in the village.

Campsite is very clean and well kept.

showers and toilets were very clean, cleaner in regular. Good washing facilities for dishes and laundry.

Small shop on sigh for the basics.

Will most definitely be returning to this sight making our stay longer next time.

We are two adults and two dogs in a tent with an electric hook up.

Location:- This campsite has a fantastic location to either relax at or to explore this fabulous coastline. The beach is adjacent to the campsite and if, unlike us, you don't want a hook up, there are pitches overlooking the beach. We had a number of BBQ's on the beach and enjoyed the sunsets. The pitches were very flat and it was easy to pitch the tent.

Facilities:- There were lots of toilets and even though the site was busy for the last weekend of our stay we never needed to queue for the toilet. There were two showers and you need to have a card to power them, this was free. They are timed but there was sufficient time to have a decent shower. The dish-wash area was under cover and there are two sinks to use both with hot water and lots of space. We did not use the laundry facilities.

Dogs:- This was a very dog friendly site and the beach was fabulous for both morning and evening walks. There were coastal paths walks either side of the beach - both lovely and with hidden gems along the route.

Overall summary:- On the week we went there were very few people there and the site was idyllic. The last weekend was a Aberdeenshire Bank Holiday and the site was very busy with families that obviously knew each other. We would visit this site again but would avoid the Scottish Holidays to ensure we had the peace we enjoy. The owners were absolutely fantastic, very helpful and informative about the area.
