Reviewer: Catarinabod 55 reviews from this member

 On checking in, I requested an open pitch with not too many overhanging trees and was kindly offered a great pitch near the portakabin facilities (as we are in a campervan without).

Red squirrels, rabbits and birds close by as there was a feeder on a nearby tree.

Facilities clean and warm, with proper showers although the cubicles are small.

Great dog walking in the woods behind the site from where you can walk in to Nairn (2+ miles), or cross the main road and head to the sea and turn right towards Nairn along the shore by the side of a golf course.

Doing a circular type route and returning via the road and the wood is around 9 miles. We tried to find the secret beach and the spit but ended up on the mainland the wrong side of the water. Think you need to head to the sea same route as into Nairn but turn left at the coast and keep going.

Free wi-fi was a bonus and staff were friendly and helpful. Didn't really think too much of Nairn town - maybe a bit out of season - but the site, woodland walks and coast were very good.

Difficult to comment on child friendliness - just lots of nature to offer!

 Great wee site loved camping in the forest. Well set out and very calming and peaceful.

Was nice to just look out into the trees and watch the birds and other wildlife great place to relax and get away from it all. Staff were lovely and very helpful.

Everyone was very friendly. Nairn beach and town only a five minute drive.

Perfect site for the last couple of days holiday left feeling relaxed and recharged.

 Decided on Nairn as we wanted to take in a boat trip to see dolphins/seals & and we had yet to venture north of Dundee since moving to Scotland a few years ago.

Arrived Saturday afternoon, greeted by very friendly lady called Glinys who checked us in nice and quickly. Asked if we had a dog with us and proceeded to then hand over a wee bag with some treats and poop bags. Nice touch.

Pitches are narrow so we were escorted up to where there were several free spaces and allowed to select whichever we felt suited best to our unit.

Showers and main toilet block are portacabins but well maintained and decent enough showers. There is also a small toilet block at far end of site where tents generally get pitched.

There is a covered washing up area and laundry facilities available. A very very small shop in reception and 2 fish & chip vans attend throughout the week - we've been told the Tuesday one is the best.

Plenty of dog walks just off site.

Nice wooded site, yes it's very close to the A96 main road but it didn't detract from our visit.

Reviewer: Basil S 24 reviews from this member

 Very good site a bit close to the main road but as it is screened by trees no noise at all.

When we arrived we were shown to our pitch and it was explained to us that they had temporary toilet facilities but these were warm and spotless, and we discovered that I knew the warden as he is a retired police officer that had escorted me when I had a wide load.

Good beach walks in the area and handy for supermarkets.

Reviewer: Jimagallan 11 reviews from this member

 Nice clean site, strict 1 pm check in so not worth arriving a bit early. Was slightly disappointed to see the toilet blocks were portacabins but they were well set out and kept nice and clean.

Good bus service from A96 directly outside to Nairn and further. Nairn is walkable but only by a track towards the moray firth, the A96 is very fast and busy. Overall a nice stay, staff very helpful but maybe a wee bit officious.

Reviewer: Coolgreina 11 reviews from this member

 First trip of the season. Very warm welcome, lovely site camping under the trees.

They were having problems with the 'loo' block and had bought in 'porta loo block' which was spotless, lovely hot showers.

There is a children's play area which look interesting.

Excellent dog walk.

Plenty of water points, bins and doggy bins.

Was a bit worried about road noise as is close to a main road, but no problem at all, well screened by trees.

Very close to Nairn itself, which has an amazing beach that seem to stretch forever. Excellent for the dogs to run on.

Nairn itself has a swimming pool, sports centre, supermarket, loads of little shops to explore, and very friendly people. We only stayed one night but there is so much to explore in the area.

 Whether you like this site would depend very much on your priorities.

It is set in woodland, which is lovely and probably helps to suppress the noise from the busy A road slightly, but makes the site dark and a bit gloomy, even on a lovely evening.

The wardens were friendly, but I felt could provide more local information on arrival - I'm not a fan of sites just giving a leaflet with the site rules and information, but nothing else on the surrounding area. For example, there is a stunning beach just over a mile's walk away, but I had to request directions - which would, of course, not be available when the reception is shut.

The site is clean and well maintained and units are well spaced out.

Reviewer: Effnboots 16 reviews from this member

 Lovely site in the forest, well spaced pitches.

Shower block lovely and clean.

Fantastic dog walk on site into forest with many paths. Can also walk along lanes to beautiful quiet beach ( about 3/4 hour walk) or take the car down but limited parking. Beach great for the dogs.

Wardens really friendly and helpful.

Yes there are midges but not horrendous.

Pitches puddle a bit if rain but dry quickly.

Small children's playground.

Can buy essentials such as milk, free range eggs etc in reception.

Would come back if in area.

 We arrived later than arranged, none the less we received a friendly, warm and helpful welcome.

A magnificent site situated on the edge of the forest, with the pitches typically being in amongst the trees with just the right distance between them. A very relaxed site.

The toilets were spotless with great water pressure and plentiful water.

A nice play park for the kids and lots of forest walks available.

We ventured to Fort George which was about 4 miles away which was exceptionally good due to a re-enactment weekend topped off with a spitfire display.

Couldn't fault the site or the wardens.

 Very friendly and well laid out campsite, on edge of forest. I was on far side away from road, and didn't find the traffic noise a problem at all. But then the weather was not great, so didn't sit outside much, or have all the windows open. As a dog owner, a big plus was the walks in woods behind the site. There were several entrances into the woods, which had a network of paths where dog could be off lead. Could get lost, but there was one waymarked path through the centre of the wood. Could also follow path across main A96 to small farm track to Delnies beach, where you could walk for miles to Whiteness Point or along to Nairn. The wardens were friendly and helpful, there was good space between pitches with lots of trees. Toilet block was kept very clean.
