Our second night of the John O Groats Lands End challenge was spent here. Facilities were absolutely fantastic and the staff were very helpful. Lovely campsite and a beautiful part of Scotland. Thank you for allowing us to stay the night free of charge as we raised nearly 1000 for The Army Benevolent Fund.

Called into this fabulous site for 3 days (7/10th July 2014) on spec and could not have been happier!

Originally only going to stay a couple of days, we stayed on a further night and would quite happily have stayed longer had it been possible.

The site staff were genuinely friendly (especially the elderly gentleman (Tom) who zooms around on his golf buggy ensuring everything is hunky dory for your stay. At over 80 years of age, he is AMAZINGLY sprightly!

The large toilet block was very clean & tidy with oodles of hot water, powerful showers and it would appear they are tended to on a regular basis throughout the day.

The site is level, dry and ideal for touring caravans, motorhomes or tenting alike & in one of the most idyllic places we have visited in our many years of touring in The Highlands!

The grass was immaculately trimmed and, to be honest, there was nothing to have a moan about.

A bonus for the biking fraternity is a large open shed to park their bike in of an evening should the weather be inclement. There is also an area for drying your wet clothes in the shed! There's a hostel building for non-campers also.

Another big bonus for us was the on-site bar and restaurant for a 'wee dram' on the short walk into town for the evening.

Being such a short walk (less than 3 minutes) into town is ideal & all you will need is there for you in the various shops.

The Caledonian Canal goes clean through the town and is a lovely place to while away a couple of hours on a sunny evening, watching the boats, some of which can be huge, climb the locks. We even witnessed a Viking Longboat come up through the canal locks, spectacular.

Fort Augustus is a very cosmopolitan little town, having visitors from the world over while we were there, mooring their boats for the evening and having a stroll through town or a light refreshment in one of the many Inns or Hotels.

All in all, I would say this site in particular, but even the location is a must for a stay on your travels through The Highlands of Scotland.

Top marks all round.

A large site with many hsp''s separated by grass all around a large field. There is a restaurant on site but we have not been there. The facilities are more than adequate. It' s very close, a 5minutes walk, to the interesting cascade locks of Fort Augustus. There are shops and restaurants, one restaurant is located at the boards of Loch Ness, where it flows into the Caledonian Canal, just before the locks.

Very nice site, man at reception friendly and welcoming. Requested pitch which had TV reception, seemingly 1/2 the pitches don't get TV. Very large pitches, with electric and water supplied (no lugging water bottles). Site is beautifully kept. Toilet block is ok, no major complaints, although the shower cubicles are large, it's difficult to get dressed without your clothes getting wet. It's a very large site and wasn't too busy when we were there but I suspect there would be queues for the 3 showers in high season. Water was hot, although you couldn't regulate the temperature. There appeared to just be 2 industrial bins close to the toilets. I think it would be helpful if there were extra bins placed around the site. There is a lovely new club house, well behaved dogs are welcome. Would definitely return. I think wifi was available sometimes.

I have stayed at this site for the last 4 years when we tour on our motorbikes around Scotland. I therefore get to see a lot of other campsites and this one is probably one of the best. It has a bar and restaurant that open at 5pm each night, toilet facilities are very good, always clean and more importantly warm. This is a godsend after a sometimes cold and wet bike ride. Staff are helpful and friendly, I particularly like the older gentleman who patrols the place on his golf buggy. The views may not be great, especially after staying in Durness, but it has everything you would need for a couple of nights of hassle free camping.

For bikers, we used the site as a base in 2013, staying for 3 nights then riding to Skye or Inverness, both outstanding roads for bikes.

Fantastic site in an excellent location, the facilities are superb, the shower block is probably the best on any campsite in Scotland.

The camping field is great, flat, soft and quietly sheltered with easy access to the village amenities, when the on site bar and lounge opens this site will be very busy so book ahead and maybe see you there, I will definitely be going back
