 What can I say? Positive points, excellent facilities, very close to town, great walks and beautiful beach with the most friendliest and kind staff.

Negative points, absolutely none, nada, zip! Loved my break here, the glamping pods are awesome, and entertainment was first class.

I'm definitely going back it was such a fun, happy holiday.

 Nice site on a beautiful beach with good facilities including a bar fish and chip shop restaurant and evening entertainment and kids entertained and a shop that could be better stocked.

Only fault with the place is totally unorganized touring pitches people who had paid for elec hook up where on fully serviced pitches that they had not paid for badly needs sorted touring warden was never about when he was needed.

Bar is nice but very expensive. Staff where also very nice.

 Been before in static not camping why we chose the site!

Camping pitches big and lots of them! Drainage good but also made it hard to knock pegs in had to buy hard ground pegs!

Great location!

Love the sound of jet engines why went back!

Toilet block in need of refurbishment but showers hot free and no need to keep pushing a button for water!

Very clean site near the sea!

 The worst pitch I have ever stayed on. A mix of gravel, sand, fag butts and beer bottle tops. And the odd clump of grass.

Can't comment on the shower block due to covid, However the toilets in the entertainment centre was open

The only thing this site has going for it is its location. Lovely sandy beaches nearby.

Reviewer: Avalonjim 1 review from this member

 Always wanted to visit this site due to its location. Which is great.

Now back to the site. Great welcome.

Then downhill after that. We booked in for one night luckily. On a standard pitch. Grass suitable for tourers and tents.

Could only describe as a litter strewn waste land. No grass. The odd weed. So decided to upgrade from 30 to 35 fully serviced pitch. Was better with some grass. But then realised on the pitch some rubbish which included a pair of used surgical gloves. We left with refund.

A company that doesn't really care about tourers obviously. But quite happy to charge top dollar for a dust bowl. Considering there's no facilities due to the virus. They have had all spring to do something about the pitches.

We have been touring for many years. Easily the worst.

 Camping pitches poor with limited choice. Lots of stones on very dry soil. Site facilities good.

Location excellent. We were disappointed overall with site this year due to limited pitches.

Site has been increased for static thus reducing pitches for campers.

 Let me just say what a fabulous location. Right on the beach. Now let's look at the rest. We arrive and check in, fine. Well organised. We head to our fully serviced pitch. No electric working. OK so we move to another pitch. No water. I am disabled and moving again was too much so my wife just goes to someone else's pitch to get the water. They don't mind because campers help each other. My point is that this place isn't cheap and we expected the quality to match the price.

Tonight we went to their bar/restaurant. OMG! I went to the bar and got a bottle of Becks and a Malibu and Coke. 6. 25. OK it's expensive I drank the Becks and went back to order a 2nd round. This time I asked for Becks again and a different barmaid said 'alcohol free? ', I said 'no just Becks', she said 'we only have alcohol free Becks'! So I had just spent 3 on lager flavoured water! I said to the girl who served me originally that she had served me alcohol free Becks.

She said 'oh I'm sorry I didn't know it was alcohol free'. OK take it on the chin. Anyway, I ordered a Bud and a glass of Rose. 8. 20! Ouch! Got back to our seat and the glass with the rose was filthy so our son took it back. He returned with the rose in a half pint tumbler.

No large wine glasses left. Classy eh! We then get told our meal is ready. So of we trot to be fed. My steak and my sons were overcooked, the wife's hunters chicken was stone cold, and the kids pizza was burned.

To add a touch of class they served the steak on a chopping board which had a blue gingham paper towel on it. As soon as I poured on the peppercorn sauce the blue gingham paper towel disintegrated and stuck to the steak. So I and my son had blue gingham paper towel flavoured overcooked steak. You couldn't make it up.

My advice here is. Come to the site for the location because it's terrific, don't expect the quality of the pitch to match the price they charge.

 Not the best organised site I have been on in recent years, chaotic at reception when large number of units arrived at same time. Was free to select own pitch, some had parked head first, some tail first resulting in awnings facing awnings.

Utility blocks are fairly modern and adequate for the site.

Site was quiet at night, exception being when the Typhoons take off at night from adjacent airfield, nobody can sleep through that.

Reviewer: Sunny Jim 60 8 reviews from this member

 Typical static site that takes tourers but appears not to really want them! We counted 24 electric sockets out of use which made it hard to find 2 pitches together.

Hard standing is a bit misleading, there are stones to pak on! Idea is good but people were just parking any where as the site didn't monitor in any way.

There were no drains for the grey waste, which had to be taken to the toilet block and pulled up 3 stairs.

Toilet block looks relatively new but bits were missing in the showers, hooks had disappeared, toilets weren't working etc, which is a big shame.

Laundry room also has 3 bathrooms which were well used. On site facilities included food and drink, swimming pool and gym.

Please improve the touring site

 Spent one night here with tent. This is our third year we have camped at this site and will be the last. They are obviously catering for status vans and motor homes etc and each year we have been the camping area has got smaller and smaller.

Facilities are ok, nice to have a bar but the staff aren't that great, a bit scruffy and unprofessional.

The bar is always busy and people drink copious amounts of alcohol which is fine if you want that type of holiday.

The best bit about this site is how close it is to RAF Lossiemouth. Great watching the Tornados and Typhoons.
