Reviewer: Jimagallan 10 reviews from this member

Site is still in progress of redevelopment and has changed quite a bit in layout. The advertised “all day” restaurant appears to be well behind on completion. Generally the site has a good feel to it and neat and tidy. I would say though at £30 a night it needs a little more to justify the price tag. Toilets as before a little small for the size of site and far too warm.

This site was previously called Cumberlands and only became the current name in early July 2018.

It seems to have had quite an upgrade - the facilities seem very new and it's set out very spaciously. I was there when it was quite quiet and although the facilities are new, I agree with previous reviewers that you may have to queue in busy times.

The site's trump card is it's location right on the edge of Ft Augustus which is one of the prettiest villages in Scotland - yes it's very touristy but I like that buzz. And there's quite a bit to do there

£30 a night was a bit eye watering - more than twice what I paid for other sites along the NC500 route - but you're paying for an excellent location.

You're also in midge country so remember your Deet spray.

I'd definitely go back to this one

Stopped here for one night on our way down Loch Ness. Nice welcome on arrival, told to pick a pitch which we did, once set up we checked out the facilities - which were nice and clean but only three showers, three wash hand basins and four toilets (in the ladies), not sure if this would be adequate if the park was even half full also quite a walk if you were at the far end of the park.

Park is very handy for the village of Fort Augustus together with shops, eateries and the locks on the canal.

Larger motorhome drivers be aware that the service point could be awkward to get in and out of - may be easier to reverse out of - with assistance.

Only down side, no views of the Loch and that is what the tourists are looking for.

The charge of £35 per night (for 2 people) was maybe a bit steep, not sure the charges for families - some young families camp because they are on a budget.

Please note we have been advised that this site is under new ownership, and is being redeveloped under the new name Loch Ness Highland Resort (previously known as Cumberlands Campsite). It is due to reopen towards the end of June 2018.

First and foremost this site is right in Fort Augustus, just a couple of minutes walk to the beautiful flight of locks and Loch Ness itself.

Hard-standing pitches are set in a circle around the edge of the site - it is massive, when we stayed only a couple of vans and tents but it could hold an army and still have loads of room.

The hard-standing pitches around the edge have ehu - didn't see any of the grass field for tents. Water taps on every other hard-standing, drive over motorhome waste near the facilities. There are a few notices, common sense i. E. Don't put disposal bbq on the grass, clean up after dogs - it didn't feel at all regimented, to be fair the opposite everyone quite laid back and very amiable.

Loos and showers look quite new, 3 showers and 4 loos in ladies. Water piping hot with brilliant pressure. There are signs saying floor slippery when wet - it very much is a bit lethal. Whilst there are signs they don't stop you slipping - needs matting or a new covering.

There is wifi on site, included in price which worked well. The cafe / bar wasn't open and we were told by reception it hadn't been open at all this year.

We found this a fabulous place to stop to visit the locks and lochs. We did intend to stay another night and cycle on the Great Glen Way but were told by reception the campsite was closing the next morning as it had been very quiet over the last week or so.

I took my 10 year old granddaughter to Scotland for a week. We decided to make it a camping trip and found Cumberland campsite online.

What a great place, we did not need to book a pitch and that was no problem. They have showers and toilets that were always clean. There was also a washing area to do the dishes with hot running water. The whole campsite was tidy and seemed well run. It was very close to the village and we went there several times as well as driving up to the castle and other places of interest. She had a great time and wants to go back again. This is an excellent place for a family to stop over.

Not bad, easy to reach restaurants near the locks. Just 3 toilets and 3 showers. All combined in one room. When showers were used, wet air produced a kind of fog. On the other side high prizes. Not too much shelter in a windy area.

As we always take our dogs with us when travelling in our motorhome, I am always double checking that the campsites accept dogs before booking. One of our dogs is quite old and can't walk very far. I had seen the Cumberlands Campsite website and it stated that dogs were permitted. We had not pre-booked a pitch when we arrived in Fort Augustus and on finding the site which is only a 5 minute walk to Neptunes Staircase and the main street of restaurants and shops I almost turned and drove back out. The first 3 signs I was faced with was a 'No Dogs' sign and a 'No dog walking' sign. When I went to go into the Reception which was closed at the time, there was also a 'No dogs' sign which made me think that they did not accept dogs. Rather than drive back out and find another campsite, I decided to walk through to the campsite and found more signs, this time saying 'Please keep your dogs on a lead'. So assumed then that they accepted dogs. This is very confusing and I can only imagine that they will lose a lot of customers who first enter the site. I met the gentleman who owned the site and he told me to pick a pitch. They were lovely pitches with electricity at each pitch and a water tap every 2nd pitch. Toilets and Showers well spotlessly clean as was the whole campsite. They have a covered shelter for people with motorbikes who were camping which I thought was great and there is also a hostel on the site. As well as the dog confusion other issue was that you could not exercise your dog on the site but there was nowhere off site to actually do this. There seems to be 'No' signs everywhere and fines if you disobey these signs.

My husband often stays here when out for a wee motorbike road trip. Having a covered shelter for his bike is a real bonus and the camping areas are both nice and flat. This was the first time we brought our tourer and are very impressed. Very big well spaced pitches with water supplies every couple of pitches. The toilets and showers are spotlessly clean and there is constant hot water in the shower at no extra charge of need for tokens. The site was quiet in the tourers area with some campers coming and going. The staff were very friendly and helpful - recommending good walks nearby. The weather was glorious so walking along the canal side was brilliant! restaurant wasn’t open yet so unable to comment but we had a very nice meal at the Richmond House Hotel (doggie friendly!) and very nice chips at the chippy beside the locks.

Fort Augustus is a 5 min walk from the site and is a lovely village in a fantastic setting. Little gift shops with some of the expected touristy items but Iceberg Glass had some really nice things and it was great to see them working with glass making things in the shop.

The Caledonian canal runs through Fort Augustus into Loch Ness and very easy to stop and spend time watching the boats come through the ladder of 7 locks, especially when the sun is shining.

A bonus was how dog friendly this site and some of the restaurants and shops are in Fort Augustus. We will be back!

This modern campsite near town. There are rules about dogs, which we actually real like, so dog owners responsible, you will enjoy, not responsible, not welcome. Nice flat tent area with covered area. Restaurant and bar open high season. Very close to town. Also has a lodge accommodation attached to site. Showers very warm and also really nice size

as most campsites' these are small.
