 Really nice campsite with stunning views. Plenty of space and facilities were decent and clean. Very helpful friendly staff. The campsite is a little out of Inverness but there is public bus every hour which we used however with 2 adults and 2 kids we were only £2 more for a taxi back! There is a great little mobile kitchen serving burgers etc at night and breakfast rolls in the morning.

 We picked a pleasant May bank holiday weekend for our stay at this pleasant site on the banks of the Beauly Firth.

The very best feature of this park is it’s location. The tent pitches (we do not use electric hook up) had the pick of the prime spots overlooking the Firth and it was lovely to sit overlooking the water and watching the lights on the bridge in the distance in one direction and the snow capped mountains in the other. Despite being so close to the city it felt very peaceful. There was a little road noise at night but probably only noticeable to us because we live in a very rural location.

The whole site had a very relaxed vibe. There are quite a lot of residential homes on site which made it feel almost like a wee village nestled on the side of the water. The welcome at reception was warm and friendly.

Facilities were basic but adequate. Pull showers - maybe a little attention to cleaning and some new shower curtains wouldn’t go amis - but plenty of hot water. Washing up facilities were also provided in a separate block.

Our kids loved the telescope mounted near the beach and the rope swing was a hit as well. There is also a large playing field with goal post so plenty of space for ball games, frisbee etc without annoying other campers. The play park is mainly an outdoor gym and swings. Great for our older kids and us! The beach is a small, mainly pebble beach. Fun for some rockpooling but not one I would want to paddle or swim from.

Being a short hop into the city was a novelty for us and for anyone camping on rainy days the close proximity of swimming pools, cinemas, trampoline parks etc would be a bonus! As well as all the shops, restaurants etc in Inverness, there is a wee shop at reception that seemed well stocked with the basics.

There is heaps to do locally. We had a drive around Loch Ness with a stop off in Fort Augustus for chips. This was incredibly busy even on an (admittedly warm and sunny) May bank holiday weekend so be aware that in peak season you need to be prepared to take your time!

As well as Loch Ness and Inverness, there is dolphin spotting up at Channory point and all the delights of the Highlands just a short drive away.

If you like a hands off, relaxed camping experience with the convenience of proximity to the city then this is a great pick!

If you value spotless facilities then you may be disappointed here. An upgrade to the shower block would gain this site a few more stars.

Lots of nice touches for the kids and a great location as a base for exploring the local area or up into the highlands.

 This is an amazing site with lovely views. The site manager was very accommodating and allowed us to have a late departure as we were participating in the Inverness Baxters Running Event. The cost is great compared to other Scottish sites and I like the relaxed nature of the site - allowing you to choose your own pitch.

Dog friendly, kid friendly. We'll definitely be back. Thank you.

 Good peaceful position out-of-town and next to the Beauly Firth. Must be very good in the summer weather!

Not much room in the lavatories! Facilities are clean and tidy. Good open views, Good skyscapes too.

 Nice site with beautiful views of Loch. Very welcoming staff. Reasonably priced and a Bus ride from Inverness. Bus stops right outside campsite. Toilets/showers a bit dated but clean. Laundry facilities would seem a bit Heath Robinson to a qualified electrician but functional although expensive. Inverness us a lovely town and worth a visit but has no dog friendly pubs to eat in. We ended up walking 2 miles back from town towards campsite to Inchnaharry Inn where the food was lovely and very reasonably priced. Unfortunately you cannot walk to/from it from the campsite due to there being no pathways on a very busy road but the pub is worth a visit.

 Stayed here for our planned (and doomed) NC500 trip, as our first night.

Very well organised and laid out site, in a veyr nice location, very handy for Inverness. The small shop on site sold most of the things you'd need.

Midge free camping, and reasonably priced (though slightly pricier than some sites).

The shower facilities were perfectly adequate, and in all, when we try our next shot at the NC500, we'd be happy to return here.

Reviewer: Fenboy 11 reviews from this member

 Tried this site 'on spec'. Great views across the Beauly Firth. No really specific pitches, but didn't find this a problem. Despite a number of children & motorcycles, noise was never a problem on the 4 nights we were there.

Facilities are a bit dated, However everything you want is there, clean and working. I admit chemical disposal point is dated, but also clean and adequate. There is an on site snack bar that does the usual fair for the campers. Also has a sign giving recommended times to go the Chanory Point to see the Dolphins.

There isn't a child's play area, (that I saw), but there's plenty for them to do.

Would recommend this site to anyone so long as you don't want everything looking like new and smelling of paint.

 Site is easy to find and access, views across the firth are stunning. However, the site facilities are rather tired, the chemical disposal point an acquired taste to use! Toilet and shower blocks are kept clean but are old and unheated, functional would be an apt description. Water and waste points are dotted around the site and are functional.

There are few hard standing pitches and theses are on a first come first served basis, tents can and do pitch wherever they like sometimes in 'silly' places.

Overall site is ok for a short stay or as stopover as the location is convenient and public transport runs from the site entrance. Could be a fantastic site if the facilities were updated.

 Stayed one night in April 2016 as part of a tour, they were very helpful and good facilities plus a small shop on site but no local pub. Watch out for there site sign as the post code takes you further up the road.

Reviewer: Cobra2 13 reviews from this member

 This site is off the main road A862 heading west out of Inverness. It's in a nice spot by the sea. We stayed here for one night. The toilet/shower block is ok. It has a lady on site operating a tea van selling burgers. Drinks etc. The cost was reasonable. Very quiet site. There is no pubs nearby at all though. So not good if you fancy a walk to a pub at the end of your day.
