Site next to main road, next to aqua centre and ice rink loud music from aqua centre. Noisy fans running all night. The site is just a field with toilet blocks with high perimeter fence around the site does not make it feel very welcoming. They give you codes for the toilets, but doors are open all night. Toilet block is cold floor in toilets wet. Metal toilets. , not the cleanest. Was booked in for 4nights £80. Stayed for 2 nights. Lots of rules on this site, but rules are broken washing hanging out, big red gas bottles everywhere, trade vehicles on site. 2 nights was all l could manage will not be going back.

This was our first visit to Bught Park with motorhome. After reading previous reviews we were not too sure. But I can honestly say we had absolutely NO complaints ! The guy on booking in was very pleasant and helpful. The site was tidy, toilets and showers very clean and plenty showers and hot water. I would like to see a few hard standing pitches even if just done in gravel as if the weather is wet the grass can be a problem. Only ten minutes walk in to town was a bonus. We will definitely return to Bught Park !

Excellent town campsite. I agree with the other comments about it not being an idyllic location or very quiet - but, hey, it's in the city!

Toilet/shower blocks are in need of upgrade but were very clean and loads of water pressure in showers.

The grass pitch got pretty wet and boggy, but there was torrential rain the whole time we were there and when I asked the cahp if he could do anything about the weather, he said 'I could make it rain some more!'

The ground is pretty stony for getting tent pegs in, so bring a good hammer.

A great base for touring Inverness and area - 10/10. £16 per night for 2 of us in a 3 person tent and our car parked next to the tent. Loads of space.

Only stayed for 1 night. Toilet blocks weren't very good and were cold. Staff weren't very helpful. Agree with comments about commercial transits and longer stay caravans. The fence around the site did not make it feel very welcome.

No play area for children that we could see, but there was a swimming pool next to the site.

Noise from the road at night wasn't bad but was worse in the morning with people going to work.

Won't be staying there again. Sorry.

Nice staff. was very wet site, was well water logged, sadly not their fault weather was really bad.

Rules don't hold water either, at least four trade caravans with their gas bottles outside, must say they were no bother.

Toilet block cold and in need of makeover but very clean,

Advise to site away from road edge, as quite a bit of traffic round the perimeter fence.

Perfect position for seeing Inverness, canal is just short walk away other than that,

Security is ok on site, barrier at night.

Leisure centre right outside gate flumes and all,

Someone could have told us about the council estate over the road. The essential wire fence made us feel like we were in a prison camp.

The site seemed more full of campervans and caravans than tents, and some of the caravans were definitely being used as accommodation for people working in the area. The ban on large gas bottles seemed pointless, as most vans had them.

The toilets were basic, and not the cleanest, but functional. The internet cafe was shut/not working for our entire stay.

Location-wise, very good for walking access along the river to Inverness. Loch Ness is a short drive in the other direction and there's a good mini market and excellent pizza takeaway just a few minutes away. The large leisure centre next door is buzzing and great for the kids.

This Campsite is approx 1 mile of town centre Inverness and the area and is only a 15 min walk or £5 for a taxi.

The site is all grass with no hard standing.

Some pitches can be quite tight if busy.

There are four blocks.

Block One toilets only (not in so canít comment)

Block Two showers only. 5 Electric showers in both the gents and ladies sides.

Block Three a mixture of showers (2)toilets, hand basins and laundry facilities in both the gents and ladies (tokens at reception).Unusual colour scheme, but always clean as were the other blocks.

Block four (not in so canít comment).

Motorhome point on site, relatively easy to use.

Large tent area on site as well.

Barrier in operation from late afternoon until morning.

Adjacent to large swimming pool complex and a Park with large kids play area and boating pond.

Have to agree with previous comments about commercial vehicles and longer term caravans on site.

No issues with surrounding housing scheme and local playing fields

Overall would use again.

This is an in-town location, set next to main road, aqua centre and ice rink. It's about 30 min walk to town centre. Not recommended if you like peace and quiet, loud music from aqua centre plus has noisy fans running all night.

Other end of site is next to main road, traffic noise. Only stayed one night. Also toilets not working as they should. On arrival got pass codes for toilets and main gate. Also said hot food at internet cafe, but were not available.

In all a good flat site, hard on tent pegs as only has a top soil. But is handy for city centre

Great location for Inverness city centre - not very scenic surroundings for the campsite itself but happy compromise for the convenience to Inverness. Good value. Could do with an upgrade of shower/toilet but clean and worked well so no complaints. I would definitely recommend this for anyone looking for a base to visit Inverness city or as a stopover as was the case for me.

Toilets basic but done the job. Never visited the showers, big wire fence round the area and a security gate put me off this site. There seemed to be people in their transits and massive caravans. The rules state no commercial traders and no big propane gas bottles but I saw plenty, after coming down from skye this was a bit of a culture shock.
