We were on a tour with the kids and found this site by accident. Huge site but it was largely shut down because it was the end of the year.

We only stayed for one night. It all looked fairly new but must have had a pounding. The showers certainly had a wiff of damp and bad water. The shower baskets attached to the wall were just rusting off the wall.

The site is picturesque. Would be interested to how big the queue would be for a shower if the site was full. Albeit a big site there are no real areas for kids to play. Which is hard with a 10 year old who gets board easily.

Must see the lock gates of the canal in the village.

Really good, hadn't booked too much in advance, and was told if no one in reception to just pitch up anywhere until the reception was open. Which is great if you are arriving but worth bearing in mind if you are moving your van for the day. Leave something behind to show that the pitch it taken

Hard standing pitches are massive, felt lost in it! but would be great if you had an awning as you would have plenty room still even after the awning was up.

Good quality showers and toilet block.

Site easy to find.

Lovely site to see the stars.

Staff friendly and approachable

Would recommend and use again

Having just stopped at a very overcrowded site at Loch Ness, and left early, this site was a breath of fresh air. The friendly staff and freedom is what we love. Pitch anywhere you like we were told, just let us know.

The facilities were great, everything you need and all clean. We loved that you can walk in to Fort Augustus in 5 mins and watch the boat go through the locks.

We loved this site if we are back in the area we will be stopping here.

I can only apologise for not leaving this review earlier, myself and good lady only spent 3 nights there but could have stayed for ages.

A cracking site with everything you need.

I was puzzled about other campers who obviously don't ask questions, they didn't know that you get very good Wi-Fi and in my case very good TV reception and excellent views.

Lot's of bikers use this site but they are so good, well organised and quiet. Plus you get to see some fantastic bikes from all over the world.

The village is really so good, so much to see and do, good shops, butcher, pubs and restaurants.

Last but not least the staff - very friendly, very helpful, not in your face but there if you need them.

Highly recommended!

A very nice site with a drive over drain to empty grey waste and hard standing pitches with electric hook up. When we arrived a pitch had been reserved for us but we were told if we didn't like it to go wherever we fancied which we did. The toilets/showers were spotless, the wash-up facilities are outside under a canopy, no other facilities on site but within walking distance of Fort Augustus and pub, fish and chip shop, local shop and post office. Friendly helpful staff, Wi-Fi not good. Did not see any child facilities but plenty of space to run around when we were there but the site wasn't busy.

Stayed here on the first night of a Highlands tour so we didn't have anything to compare it to. The site is convenient for Fort Augustus which is within easy walking distance. There is a convenience store, pubs and restaurants plus a takeaway in the village. Also a staircase lock which lowers the Caledonian Canal down to the level of Loch Ness. This is quite interesting in its own right. The site itself was well maintained with a clean modern toilet block. It is essentially a large grass field with pitches around the edge. It did have a bit of a soulless feel to it though. There were a couple of unattractive bunkhouses which you passed on the way to the camping field. It certainly served its purpose for a one night stay on the way to more interesting parts of the Highlands. However I wouldn't like to spend a week there.
