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.

Dingwall station is very close and at the junction to go west to Skye or north to Wick.

This review is for Dingwall

Dingwall station is very close and at the junction to go west to Skye or north to Wick. Also a regular service to Inverness. Good walks right from site and an easy drive west towards Ullapool. This really is a good location for exploring the north. Our only wish is that the site was open all year.

Site in easy walking distance of the town which has good rail and bus links. The courtyard cafe is tucked away down a side alley of the Main Street but is well worth searching out.

This review is for Dingwall

Access could prove to be tricky when Ross County FC are playing at home as the access road has the stadium on one side and the car parks on the other. There are footpaths from the site entrance leading into the town centre and to Lidl and Tesco. The rail station is only a five minute walk away from the entrance with services travelling north to Thurso and Wick, south to Inverness and westwards to Kyle of Lochalsh. There are plenty of walks from the site entrance including a circular walk either side of the river and a round Dingwall walk to mention only two. There is also a recreation ground opposite the entrance. The site is level with a mixture of grass and hard standing pitches with the extremely well kept amenity block located centrally. There are also a number of "hideaway pitches for tenters" Many of the units on the site return year after year at the start and finish of the season as well as users from the far north overnighting when travelling south and returning home. All the people we spoke to onsite were extremely friendly. The wardens were extremely friendly and helpfull. This is a site we will have no hesitation in returning to.
