A lovely quiet site within walking distance of Inverness. Facilities are very clean and always a warm welcome whenever I stay here. It is one of my favourite sites in the highlands. The local bus service stops just outside the site and takes you into the city centre.

Having stayed there 4 years ago we decided to return to bught park, what a mistake. We were put next to the fence which backs on to the leisure centre constant noise day and night. From early morning til late at night children from the apparently permanent vans were allowed to run screaming and shouting unchecked. Although the chap who works from the portacabin was very nice, another one whom we didn't know arrived at our tent and demanded we move our car. This was on our last night, he was abrupt and rude. We won't return. Also toilets and showers outdated and often dirty.

Was easy enough to make a phone call booking with no deposit required.

There isn't much to do on the site, no real provisions for children.

It is situated conveniently for the leisure centre, the Caledonian canal & the city centre. However it is situated in a built up residential area and was quite noisy.

The staff we met were pleasant and helpful.

The let down was the main toilet block which were really quite poorly maintained and quite dirty, so much so, we really didn't want to use them.

We stayed at this site a year ago for 3 nights and was disappointed that things hadn't changed since, as we re-visited with a view to stay last week and subsequently didn't.

Although staff were pleasant, the facilities were clean though basic and convenient to town it was the laughable use of large signs for 'No Commercial Vehicles' etc. Many were parked on the outside of gate and some plain coloured ones on site (most quite new!).

Yet again it was so obvious to see the long-term/permanent community of families based on the site and a feeling that you were 'on their patch'. As stated previously by others it would be noisy 1st thing in the mornings when they were going to work and on return, whilst domestic chores would go on throughout the day, having monopoly of the facilities.

A funfair was setting up in the field opposite and related vehicles were on site, hence due to the potential noise decided not to stay.

This could be such an excellent site with an upgrade of facilities, a few hard standings and only leisure campers to warrant the charges and could even charge a little more as a result.

A great location, with a 10 minute walk to inverness centre and a few minute walk to the caledonian and loch ness boat trip boarding site. Facilities are excellent and well kept. A friendly and helpful welcome always. Walking the caledonian canal banks is an easy and pleasant walk with plenty of wildlife on view. The site is flat and pitches are well marked, with easy access to all the facilities.

I think this must be a municipal camp site run by managers rather than owners. This does not mean that this site is poor by any measure. It is big and extremely well organised. The tent field if you're cycling or hiking is huge and separate from the motor homes, caravans and vehicular campers.

Shower block I used was very dark and strange, water hot and plentiful but a bit cramped.

Pumping techno music from the adjacent leisure centre spinning class hovered over the site until about 8:30ish, but this was not unpleasant. In fact I missed a bit when it stopped.

All in all a good site for a stop over.

We love Inverness and this place is part of the reason. Welcoming, convenient and well tended. We noticed no unusual traffic so the 'problem' has evidently been dealt with.

Don't be put off- easy to find and a twenty-minute cycle from town through pleasant parks by the Ness.

If we ever find ourselves six hundred miles from London again we'll be back.

I have had a few holidays in inverness and have always stayed at bught caravan site. City centre about twenty minutes walk along ness walk. A very pleasant walk. Toilets and camping area are kept clean and tidy, Site staff are friendly and helpful, well worth a visit. Inverness itself has many pubs for entertainment with many places where a pleasant meal can be had.

I stayed 2 nights to take part in the Loch Ness Marathon, so for me it was ideal. It's close to the town and has good unmetered showers. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Obviously the site is in a town so it is a bit noisy with cooling fans from the ice rink, but I just got used to it. No signs of washing or vans etc. I was very pleased that I stayed there and would again. Basic, but good and clean and well managed.

Mostly I agree with other reviews. The location of the site is fab if you want a nice walk into Inverness (which is a lovely town) however it is in a rather seedy looking areas of town and there doesn't seem many places to eat nearby.

The site itself was tidy and well kept but there were a lot of what appeared to be long stay vans with their washing hung all round and what could only be described as patios set up. On the whole this wasn't an issue until the evening when lots of vehicles seem to be driving around quite fast dropping people off. The same happened in the morning with associated horn blowing!

The toilets were very clean as far as I could see but they are rather old and dimly lit. I chose not to use the showers as I have mobility issues and there was no adapted facility that I could find and no seats provided in the others. My hubby did however and said they were very good.

The owners were very pleasant and helpful in my dealings with them.

The worst thing however has to be the very loud fans on the swimming/ice complex which went on all night. Thankfully I had recently been to a festival and had some earplugs! I don't think I have ever had to sleep with earplugs before even at festivals!

We only stayed one day and that was enough. All in all I would return but for no more than one night and probably not in bad weather as the site is all grass. I also thought it was quite expensive 22 a night (which did include 2 extra per night per dog) but when you can go to a caravan club site just up the road for less I would definitely choose that for longer.
