 A nice small site right on the bay, with great views. Staff are helpful and friendly. Some of the pitches are extremely sloping.

The village is in two parts - the traditional fishing harbour area (where the pub and museum were closed during our stay, I assume because of Covid), which has a lovely souvenir/clothing shop; and the high street with bakers, mini market, home made ice cream shop and pub, and man-made village loch behind.

The village produces an excellent brochure in which several good walks are described.

There were eider ducks on the beach right in front of us.

 Used this site as a stop over when exploring the coast road. We didn’t need EHU, so were directed to park along the flat grassy edge of the beach. The greeting in the reception hut was really friendly and welcoming.

Two minor things let the site down a little, the facilities are very dated, clean but old. People walking along the coast, were walking directly on the beach side pitches rather than behind them; so when sat out, our dogs (and other people's dogs on similar pitches) would bark at them.

Portsoy was a nice traditional fishing village which we had a nice wander around. The view from the pitches was great and directly out in to the bay looking at the various sea birds and wildlife. We’d have no hesitation in stopping here again if we were in the area.

 We stayed here two nights and absolutely loved it. The whole area is so well looked after. There is a lovely lake behind the town which is beautifully kept, & the old harbour is quaint. Great value.

Reviewer: Bobmel 12 reviews from this member

 Good location, right on the shore. Most pitches are grass and slightly sloping. There are two toilet blocks which are kept spotless (they could be doing with up dating)only one shower in each block, was not a problem when we where there. There is a good kids play area (enclosed), our number one tester was not with us this trip so no opinion but the kids using it where having a great time. As mentioned in another revue there is a hike up steep steps to get to the shops or go the scenic route via the harbour. Some say the waves on the shore are soothing, I would say it is more like sleeping underneath a jumbo jet on full throttle, could be a problem for some. Will definitely be returning because there is so much to see/do in the area a long weekend is not enough. Beggars Belief Coffee Cove at the harbour well worth a visit, the Cullen Skink was lovely. Hook Line and Sinker in the village for fish and chips. P. S. Wish we had booked for the Portsoy boat festival but too late for that.

 Been to site twice. With friendly wardens. Clean site. Toilets clean. It is next to the sea, long walks for the dog. The site in the town but you have to go up a hill(steps up from site) so able to go to shops, bar, takeaways, fish & chips was very tasty.

Reviewer: Kareng49 1 review from this member

 I stayed here for 3 nights. on arrival wasn't to sure if we would be staying as the campsite itself was very busy. Anyway after chatting to the warden we decided to give it a go. The park itself is on a great location and close to all amenities, the toilets need upgrading and the pitch spaces are a huge let down, felt as if I were a sardine in a tin.

If coming to this campsite 1 night is more than enough. Also its the same caravanners must go back year as they all gather together for there once a year get together. For me not great however the location is fantastic.

Reviewer: SusanMcT 12 reviews from this member

 We booked a two night stay for the long weekend in May. We had phoned ahead to check they had a pitch big enough for a 6 berth tunnel tent with an electric hook up and booked for that day without requiring to pay a deposit. On arrival the owner was very friendly, however our first impression of the site was that it was rather tired looking. The site was full of caravans and very busy. The only area to pitch near the EHU was VERY sloping, and directly opposite the wardens busy portacabins. In the end we decided against staying and moved on to another site further west. Not a site I would return to, although if you were camping without EHU then the area in front of the beach would be ok for smaller tents.

 Just back from a lovely couple of days at this beautiful little site. A simple little park but set in a fabulous bay with the historic harbour very nearby.

The site is on a slope but this did not cause any problems and there is a very good little play park at the centre of the site.

Must recommend both the chip shop and the local ice creams. Yum!

Very nice welcome from the warden too with local recommendations, a lovely service. Thank you.
