Come and stay in the peace and tranquility of Fortrose Bay Campsite, one of the best places to view dolphins, in their natural habitat, in Scotland. Situated on the pebble beach overlooking the spectacular view over the Moray Firth, It's the perfect place to relax and unwind.

Fortrose is an historic seaside village. It lies 15miles NE of Inverness and is a great base to explore the rest of the Highlands. The Black Isle benefits from its own micro climate, often having better weather than other parts of Scotland. It is virtually midge free !! which makes it a great place to camp.

The Black Isle is actually a peninsula, rather than an island, running from Beauly to Cromarty at the tip. It is flanked by the Moray and Cromarty firths. It isn't certain where it gets its name from, some say its because the soil is so dark, others because the snow rarely settles on the Isle. Chanonry point is a large natural sand bar and lies between Fortrose and Rosemarkie village. It has a very scenic golf course and lighthouse and is famous for being the best place to spot the UK's most northern colony of bottlenose dolphins.

Fortrose Bay Campsite September 2022

McErlean, Brian - 23/09/2022

Overall a nice campsite with open sea views and SW aspect. Unique in that a through road splits the site almost in half. Pitches spacious, ours was uneven so took a bit of time level up the van, but not a lot of privacy. Only downside was the toilet/shower facilities, which were clean and tidy, but let down by size and being a bit dated. The site is within an easy walk to the town centre pubs shops and Chanonry Point dolphin watch and of course the golf course.

Perfect location for a lovely relaxed site which is in walking distance of the village and Channory Point with Rosemarie just a little further. Nice warm showers, friendly reception, drive over waste, what’s not to like?!

Thanks for your positive review and your comments. You’re right, some of our facilities are not as new as other sites, but our shower shack does give our campers a modern, spacious option and our facilities are spotless and well looked after, as our reviews reflect. Most campers find we’re very good value for money, and we are continually seeking to improve however we can, so appreciate the feedback. Go well and happy camping!With best wishes from the Fortrose Bay Campsite crew.
