 Nice and clean site, but not sure how they come to £34.50 a night as no renovations have ever been done to the site since the council ran it.

Showers had out of action signs in both ladies and gents due to urgent repairs,

The site lighting needs a few bulbs changed

 Ourselves and neighbouring friends had all booked to attend the Buckie Classic Car Rally which was to be held on Sunday 30th August 2020 so we all booked to stay at Findochty Caravan Site.

We had our Motorhome and friends had their own Caravan. When we booked Ashley was so pleasant and helpful that she allocated us pitches directly next to each other which was so kind and very thoughtful.

Sadly Buckie had to cancel their Show due to the Coronavirus and the outbreak in Aberdeen which was completely the right thing to do.

As we were all looking forward to our trip we still decided to go to Findochty for the 2 nights and we were all going to be (self-contained) with all our own facilities so it was not a problem.

Ashley informed us that if we did require to use the WC facilities they were open but as long as you adhere to all the relevant guidelines and procedures.

I had a look and I can confirm that her WC Facilities were absolutely pristine and immaculate, the cleanliness was so very High indeed to which they have to be commended for such professional pride in their cleaning standards. We actually checked out of a Hotel in Inverness in August due to the poor and disgraceful unacceptable cleanliness within the Bedroom and Dining Room and to go to a Caravan Site and actually discover absolutely immaculate WC’s and facilities was truly so welcoming to which the Staff deserves credit.

We had a lovely walk along the Moray coast and into Finechty where we actually got speaking to a very nice (Local lady) with a most beautiful Cockapoo Dog and after we told her where we were staying it turned out that she was Ashley’s Granny. A very sincere family indeed. We truly loved it so much that we have booked to return in October for 3 or 4 nights as this is such a beautiful and very well managed site. Thanks, Stuart Findlay, Laurencekirk.

 Really enjoyed this small site for a few nights.

Short walk to the village and bus stop. Perfect to visit my relative in near by Portnockie, lots of other villages nearby.

You need to use your own toilet and shower but that wasn’t a problem.

Sea views also 😁

 Another lovely site, right on the sea front just off the small harbour, Findochty is small but a perfect tradition Scottish harbour village.

Shower/toilet blocks are quite old fashioned but spotlessly clean and well kept, look like they get redecorated every year.

Excellent fish & chip shop in Portknockie 2miles away. Beautiful walks/biking along coastal path.

Definitely recommend this site if you like quiet places with stunning views.

 Pulled in to this site for a stopover en-route along the coast road.

We had a great pitch right on the edge of the pebble beach, which gave fantastic views of the sea birds and also a pod of dolphins swimming past.

The facilities were kept clean and tidy. The shop in the village was well stocked.

The views really make this site and we’d certainly return if we’re in the area again.

 Our second visit to this site and a very pleased to find nothing had changed.

Site still really well kept, toilets and showers still quirky and some of the cleanest we have every seen. Piping hot water in the showers, there is a washing up sink in both the ladies and gents facilities. A washing machine in the ladies for £3 a load. Fresh water tap and grey drain outside the facilities.

The pitches at the front are the best, looking straight out to sea. Plenty of room with hardstanding or grass and each with ehu.

The Moray Footpath runs through the site, follow in either direction right along the coasts.

The village is quaint for a walk around but nothing to hold you there, the attraction for us is the campsite itself and the views.

Some may find it a bit old fashioned but for us its perfect.

 This is a great wee site, right on the edge of the shingly beach with wonderful views out to sea. The site reception is in Dennis, the owner's front room. Dennis is very welcoming, providing simple and basic instructions but, be warned, he does not accept debit or credit cards. It's cash only.

The pitches are perfect for taking advantage of the views and dolphins can be seen when they are passing. The site consists of a number of static caravans as well as a number of hard standing touring pitches with EHU and some grass pitches as well.

The toilet facilities are dated but spotlessly clean and provide all the necessary features you need. The carpet is unique but provides a homely and cosy atmosphere and makes showering a pleasure. The chemical toilet block, although it has been subject of some criticism in other reviews, is fine. It serves the purpose for what it intended and is in keeping with the character of the site.

The site is a short distance from the local harbour and there are plenty of nice walks around the village with access to another nice beach beyond the village.

There is a pub, The Admirals Inn, at the entrance which does food however, despite some good reports, we found the food was O. K. But the service was not the best.

We would return to this site and stay here again without hesitation.

 We had a wonderful 5days at Findochty, great sea views from our pitch next to the entrance, some local building work next to the site, it didn't disturb us during our stay.

The showeroom/W/Cs are dated, however were kept spotlessly clean, two water points for fresh water, and grey water located at the entrance and halfway up the site, no motor home service area.

The Élsan waste shed is located at the back of one of the static vans and is and old wooden shed, in my opinion it should be relocated to an easier accessible area and modernised.

The village is in a lovely coastal location, lovely sandy beaches and small harbours, the town has a good fully stocked shop, post office which is located in the chemist, we found the local folk were very friendly and happy to pass the time of day with you.

We tried the Admirals bar on or first day, had a drink and didn't return, we didn't find some of the bar staff too friendly in our opinion.

This is a lovely site and will include this on our next tour along the Moray coast

 Cracking location. Views right out to the Moray firth the site is situated in a small cove with a small pebble beach right in front of the pitches and a couple of large rock outcrops that are used by kids for base jumping into the water at high tide.

Rather them than me! Got booked in at reception and was met by the straight talking owner who told us where everything was.

Seemed quite a relaxed site with not to many unnecessary rules. Previous posts have put down the toilet block as being dated which I suppose it is a bit however we liked it and it reminded us of what it may be like to use your granny's outside toilet. It had a homely feel to it freshly painted and plenty hot water for the showers.

The showers are push button type but you get plenty time between presses. £24 a night for two with EHU is reasonable value. Lovely walks from the site along the Moray Coastal Trail to Buckie and to Cullen which seems to be the best bits of this long distance footpath as far as we could see.

Only down side to the site for me was the chemical waste disposal. It was fairly basic which was okay but the problem was a metal grid with two inch square holes had been placed over the 'bowl' no doubt to stop cassette caps from falling in and blocking the drain. This led to previous user toilet paper and other matter remaining above the bowl. Nasty!

Not entirely the fault of the site, if only people would use the correct paper or at least use the hose provided to wash their mess away all would be well. Great location relaxed site with a local keystore in the village for all your basics.
