    Top site for beaches

Beautifully located between the beaches of the Moray Firth and the hills.

Our Rosemarkie Club campsite on Scotland’s Black Isle sits right on the edge of a half-moon bay, flanked by hills and woodland on one side and the stunning Moray Firth on the other. If it’s dolphins you’ve come to see, you won’t have to look too far. The lighthouse, just a short walk from the site is the ideal place.

Campers will enjoy superb views over the Moray Firth to Fort George from many of the pitches here and a walk along the sand from the site brings you to the Faerie Glen. Rosemarkie village is famous for its Pictish stones housed in the Groam House Museum. There’s a pleasant beach extending all the way to Chanonry Point and a community-run beach café.

Fortrose boasts a ruined cathedral and several restaurants and tearooms. Hidden from most of the town and only reachable by narrow, twisting roads, is a very pretty harbour offering many leisure pursuits and a peaceful and secluded beach.

The more lively Inverness is close by. Sitting on the banks of the River Ness, the town is dominated by a pink crenelated castle. The towns offer many places of interest to visit as well as shops, eating places and a Victorian market.

Nature lovers can take a boat from Avoch Harbour or Cromarty to see dolphins. Or visit Munlochy Bay to spot wading birds, ducks and migratory birds, or feed ducks, geese and swans at Black Isle Wildlife and Country Park.

Beautiful site right on the sea front, well sized and spaced pitches catering for every need.

This review is for Rosemarkie

Beautiful site right on the sea front, well sized and spaced pitches catering for every need. Welcome was friendly and the staff couldn't do enough to help. The facilities were spotlessly clean and well distributed throughout the site. Beautiful walks down the beach to both Rosemarkie and to Chanonry Point, home to a pod of dolphins where they come close to the shore line giving you excellent opportunity to see them eat and play! Stunning views across the Moray Firth to Fort George and beyond. The site is central to many wonderful places to visit including the aforementioned Fort George, the pretty village of Cromarty (home of the Sutor Creek with their wonderful wood fired pizza), Culloden battlefield, Clava cairns, the Black Isle Brewery as well as further afield to the Western Highlands, Skye and the Cairngorms. Met lots of great campers, of all generations, from all over Europe all of whom would stop and say hello. Camping in July meant we could sit out until after 11pm when it would start to get dark and get up to see fantastic sunrises around 4am. Being a coastal site and on the east coast of the Highlands meant the dreaded midge wasn't around in any significant number to spoil things. Will definitely be back again in the future!!

A great four day summer stay exploring the Black Isle. Shower blocks a little dated and small but clean. Tv reception good and 4g cellular. Crofters Bistro exceptional and Plough Inn pub great atmosphere. Fairly Glenn a delightful non taxing walk.

This review is for Rosemarkie

At the area of the site we were on the amenities block had just one shower in both male and female areas. Must have been at least 20 units so a busy time in the morning. All pitches are grass and it rained so plenty puddles although they cleared reasonably quickly. The site fees of �26 a night put us off from staying longer as it is expensive for what they offer. Some excellent places to eat nearby but book in advance as they get full. Would we return? Yes but just one night at a time due to the costs.
