Overview

Explore the Highlands from this peaceful Scottish campsite.

Our Club campsite at Dingwall sits at the head of the Cromarty Firth and is ideally located for exploring the Scottish Highlands and the wooded Black Isle.

This pretty campsite caters for all unit types; it is well laid out and level, with many pitches bounded by trees and hedges, ensuring you’re perfectly pitched to enjoy a relaxing break. The market town of Dingwall is close by offering a range of shops, a supermarket and restaurants. You can catch a train from here to Kyle of Lochalsh on the West coast; a stunning route taking in some of Scotland’s most beautiful scenery.

If you enjoy walking, the Dingwall Heritage Trail passes the campsite and follows the River Peffery to a picnic area on the Cromarty Firth. Head to Evanton and Fyrish Hill for other walking opportunities.

Wildlife lovers can spot dolphins at Cromarty, whilst Red Kites can be seen on the Black Isle. To view osprey, visit Udale Bay, part of the Firth shoreline where birdwatchers can also scan for waders and wildfowl.

To sample the local culture, visit the Victorian spa village of Strathpeffer with the Highland Museum of Childhood or enjoy a tasting and tour at the Black Isle Brewery, Munlochy.

This site always seems peaceful even when nearly full.

This review is for Dingwall

This site always seems peaceful even when nearly full. Worth noting that the rail line runs along one side of the site - so you may get an early wake up ! Local butchers are excellent for those eating in. Not much choice in restaurants in town - lots of take away premises though. We visited Brodie Castle, Culloden (excellent exhibition), Ullapool ( very scenic day drive) and the local cattle market on sales day ( interesting if you are not connected with farming )

VERY, VERY CLEAN facilities. Short walk in to Dingwall town centre.

This review is for Dingwall

VERY, VERY CLEAN facilities. Short walk in to Dingwall town centre. Could possibly be noisy on Ross County FC match days as its next to the stadium. Good location for exploring the Black Isle or over as far west as Ullapool, also a good starting point for the North Coast 500. The only little bugbear for us was that you have to hire frozen cool cells, can't freeze your own, so when you pack up to move on you could have a problem keeping food cool till you get to your next pitch. We had a great walk from Fodderty, over Knockfarrell and it's vitrified fort to Strathpeffer. After visiting the old Station Cafe and Museum of Childhood we took the old railway track bed for the level walk back but beware, this part of the footpath is not yet complete with a section in the middle advising walkers that "You are being watched" "No through route". There is no law of trespass in Scotland, as long as you do not damage fences, crops or otherwise frighten farm stock, you have the Right to Roam.
