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.

Wonderful place to stay!

We booked our pitch very last-minute and had to arrive shortly after the office hours.Nevertheless the staff was very friendly, helped us out with a extension cable for the van and explained everything.We stayed for one night only and then continued our travels so we can't recommend restaurants, activities etc.But the surroundings appeared clean and looked after, so nothing to criticise here.Good job! We will probably come back!

Lovely site

This was a lovely site and on a good day the views would I’m sure be amazing. Sadly for us it was mainly wet and misty but we got occasional snippets of the view. Really handy for Dolphin watching at Charony point, an easy walk along the cliffs. A lovely we village with all the essentials. The site staff were very welcoming

Our pitch couldn't have been any nearer to the sea! Flat pitch, good facilities. Very warm welcome when we arrived with plenty of information given about the surrounding area. Short walk into Fortrose village with range of shops and cafes. Can recommend the dog-friendly Anderson pub for a drink. Good walks from site.
