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 Lochlash 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 review is for Dingwall

We booked at short notice and both Chris and Andrew could not have been more helpful and friendly. The site is completely different to last year, it's clean, well organised and very well maintained. Andrew's flowers are a credit to him, what a lovely show. Don't let the railway put you off, you will scarcely notice it and the site is very quiet at night. There are lovely walks for your dogs and you are within easy reach of shops, Chanonry point for the dolphins and many Black Isle attractions. When we were there both Chris and Andrew with the help of their trainees were painting frantically fences, building etc for the arrival of the Queen's baton. They will do the club proud. We certainly will be visiting again.

This review is for Dingwall

Booked 4 nights here but stayed 5 as so much to visit in area. Would have stayed longer, will definitely return. Local bakery and butchers very good, also bakery at Cromarty sells lovely cinnamon buns. Saw dolphins in Moray Firth but eagles not visible in Valley of the Eagles-maybe next time. Train journey to Kyle of Lochalsh well worth it. Trip on boat there was very interesting with glimpses of sea otters and grey seals. Visited Castle of Mey during day trip to John o'Groats.
