Beautiful natural site in amongst the sights and sounds of the highlands, probably the closest we've been to wild camping but with electric and facilities. Picnic bench on each pitch. Lovely walk to loch lindie. And also dog walk in other direction. Happy to stay in the confines of this lovely site, probably need to drive for pubs and shops. Very helpful owners with information on walking.

If peace and quiet surrounded by beautiful natural scenery is what you like then this site is absolutely perfect!

I stayed for one night on my way to Skye as it is perfectly situated. Grass pitch with no electric only cost £8 with access to the showers. The site is on different levels and is very well spaced out amongst the woodland giving a sense of total privacy. Along with the no children policy it was completely silent apart from the wind in the trees. It's well away from the main road and there is nothing man made to be seen outside of the site.

The facilities were first class, large shower rooms with hot adjustable showers and plenty of room to get properly dried.

What a gem of a campsite and right in the heart of the beautiful Highlands. The welcome was lovely on arrival and the amenities were clean and a pleasure to use.

The pitches are kept lovely and a good distance between units, that meant not just privacy but also a quiet and relax full holiday was enjoyed.

The site is well situated in the middle of the Highlands with easy access and beautiful scenery all round. Being in the middle meant that places like Inverness, Kyle of Lochalsh, Skye and Fort William were within a good driving range with spectacular scenery and mountain ranges.

Plenty of walks in the area with lovely viewpoints to view from for the energetic. I took my Kayak with me and had great adventures kayaking Loch Oich, Loch Lineh and dare I say Lock Ness, although I never saw Nessie.

A perfect campsite for a perfect rest and enjoyment of the Highlands. I will certainly book again next year.

A beautiful site and a superb pitch ( no9 ). Our main entertainment watching a duck with 9 ducklings on the pond in front of us. Only one minus for me was the excellent shower was not disabled friendly. Despite this I would definitely return. Thank you for 6 wonderful days.

Faichemard is hands down our favourite campsite ever. We've been 3 times now and each time we love it more. It's a 'natural' looking site which although landscaped of course for pitches, manages to look unspoilt all the time. There is so much space on pitches, we feel totally comfortable and never overcrowded, even when the site is full.

Loos and showers are lovely, proper electric showers with heat control, and are free, and immaculately clean. We never had to wait either. There are some lovely walks around this area and easy access to Fort Augustus, just a few minutes in the car.

We were delighted to see that Blake, the cat, was still around too - she's an absolute star!

We'll be back as soon as we can to this little piece of heaven.

Friendliest welcome on arrival we have ever had to this lovely adult only site.

There are a mixture of grass and hardstanding with or without EHU.

We had EHU and was a very reasonable £18. 50 per night.

Really good loos and showers, spotlessly clean. Under cover washing up sink but a bit of a hike from some pitches.

There are 2 blocks at different parts of the site, each has 1 lady and 1 gent loo, 2 showers and a disabled facility. Site was full and we didn't have to queue for loo, didn't use the shower, used our own.

Lots of privacy as the site is so cleverly designed over the hillside, all pitches looked flat and were large and each had it's own picnic table.

Sadly we had to leave a day early there had been unusually warm weather for 3 weeks before we visited (June 2nd) and the midges were a real problem, I can't mark the site down for that, they do have midge repellents all over to help but we were badly bitten.

However we were chatting to a chap who had been there longer then us and didn't have a single bite, so it depends on your own skin type I guess.

Would we return? Definitely but earlier in the season.

This is a little gem of a camping site for those seeking peace and quiet, lovely views, and dark skies.

Good for forest/ river/ loch walks. We found plenty of walk to choose from in the local area. Invergarry has a petrol station, a hotel/pub and a small post office. For more facilities you're best heading up to Fort Augustus which is about a 15 minute drive.

We camped for one night (intended to be two but OH was called in to work a day early) and had a good time. There had been a lot of rain, so the pitch was a little boggy, but we managed to pitch on a relatively dry part. The pitch had a picnic table which was a nice touch. The site is laid out in quite a dispersed way so that you have a pitch to yourself.

The toilets, showers and dishwashing area was kept very clean. The site, too, is well maintained and tidy.

Colin was very friendly and helpful and have us some good advice about local dog walks.

The only downside for us was the midges. They were particularly rampant between 7-10pm. The conditions were perfect for them: a sunny, windless day after many days of rain. If we had stayed a second night we'd have likely had to go out for the evening and come back late because there were hundreds of them.

This is an excellent site, in a fabulous location. Really easy to find with directions supplied on the e-mail confirmation. Didnít realise when I booked that the site was so big, I thought all the pitches were around the water feature, but there was a lot more to the site. We were allocated one of the pitches up towards the reception area. Really big, great views and the picnic table (every pitch has one) is a nice touch and give a bit more flexibility for outdoor eating. The pitches beside the water are flat and very near their toilet block. The other pitches are uphill a bit and their toilet block is down a little slope. This wasnít an issue for us, but would be worth checking at time of booking. Two good toilet / shower blocks with dishwashing facilities attached. When we were leaving, solar panels were being fitted to both toilet blocks

When we arrived, we met Lauren at reception. What a really nice friendly and helpful service provided. We were only here for a couple of days, but anytime we spoke to Lauren and Colin they could not have been more helpful. Some good walking from the site itself. Also, when you walk down to the river (approx. 1 mile Ė via very quiet road) a lot more good walking to be had. We walked along the river to Invergarry. Not much in the village, but the hotel is worth a visit for nice food. Also local petrol station sells the basics, so no need to go short.

This is an adult only site, but that wasnít the reason we booked. The site looked good, the location is spectacular and the walks for us and our dog were great. However, only one little issue. Be prepared for the famous Scottish midgie. These little blighters were out in force (only present for a small part of the year). Donít let that put you off. This is great site in a great location and is a good base for touring the area. Would definitely recommend.

What a find! Superb site, so quiet and peaceful, could have stayed on indefinitely if time allowed. Perfect setting, with each pitch having its own individuality with picnic table alongside. We were pitched at number 12, overlooking the gorgeous pond where ducks frequent and water lilies abound. On arrival we were given a different pitch and requested to move, which was no problem at all. Colin and Lauren are number one hosts, so pleasant, helpful and informative. NOTHING was too much trouble. Much thought has gone into this site, (which I wish others would do) and the facilities are excellent, spotless and well maintained. Two toilets and one shower (never had to queue) for females and same for males with loads of hot water. Adjoining dish washing area is superb. Site an hours drive from Inverness and Kyle of Localsh, 25 minutes from Fort William and close to Fort Augustus for shopping. We really could not have asked for better, great that it was for adults only and glad to say no dogs barking satisfied us completely. This is a MUST to visit, our only gripe being we have to move on.

Superb site, spacious, quiet, clean and no children. We arrived yesterday and are staying for 7 nights. Weather today is not good (raining) but Mr Weather man says it's to be dry now till Friday. Wonderful
