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.

The site is clean and well-managed by a friendly couple.

This review is for Dingwall

The site is clean and well-managed by a friendly couple. Central for facilities in Dingwall (but we couldn't find a dog-friendly pub). The Indian restaurant is particularly good. Well situated for Ross County football ground - they're worth supporting! Quiet site away from traffic, lots of open space nearby as well as fine walks.

Arrived on a very stormy night and were shown a couple of pitches.

This review is for Dingwall

Arrived on a very stormy night and were shown a couple of pitches. We chose one away from trees..just incase. The newly refurbished toilet block is very clean and tastefully decorated. The site is very handy for local walks and also for visiting Strathpeffer area. We would have stayed longer but a family emerency meant we had to leave earlier than we had intented to but we will be back.

Only stayed one night, but could tell this is a well run campsite.

This review is for Dingwall

Only stayed one night, but could tell this is a well run campsite. Toilets and showers were the cleanest i have ever seen Staff were friendly and welcoming The campsite is in a good location and within a 10 min walk along by the canal into the town centre. Also situated right next to Ross County football club. Only thing missing was a small play area for kids, however the same could be said for the majority of campsites in Scotland.

Been using this site for over 20 years.

This review is for Dingwall

Been using this site for over 20 years. Current wardens and assistants are best I have seen and are extremely helpful. Site has finally had long overdue upgrade of toilet and utility blocks plus extra hard standings created. However, considering the astronomical price paid by the club there are far too many finishing touches still to be done. Someone should have a serious discussion with the contractors. These include lack of hooks in the toilets' washroom areas, push button showers which turn off much too quickly, poorly fitted shower stools some of which lock up, stupid toilet roll dispensers where the toilet roll frequently breaks making it difficult to relocate the end inside the infernal contraption (one in the disabled toilet is even worse). In the utility area, there should be a drinking water tap unit as there used to be; there seems to be only two such units on the whole site and some visitors have a fair walk to the nearest one. Same push button taps on the sinks with massively varying on times! New automatic barriers are good when they work but the exit one broke down! The entry one is now further inside the site giving better parking security for anyone returning after 11 pm. The extra hard standing is good for caravans, etc. It would be good to see something similar and suitable for tents. As with many CCC sites, the camping "C" seems to be being gradually pushed further and further into the background. All sites should provide an undercover cooking area for campers especially this one as it lies on the route from Land's End to John o' Groats. The site is well laid out with improved drainage although a few areas seem to have got worse! The site is at the end of a usually quiet road which no one will drive to the end of unless visiting the site but the football ground (Ross County) is on the same road so match days can be busy. Dingwall is a small town with usual facilities including Lidl and a large Tesco. The site is almost midge free.
