    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 Channory 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.

This review is for Rosemarkie

This site was once a jewel in the crown, however coastal eriosion and blocked drains now let it down. The team prefer motor homes and ignore tents. Expect a poor pitch for a tent. Ground is maintained without tents in mind. Not suitable for familes due to road running through site. Limited aging shower blocks. Only one washing machine however this is mostly used by the site team to wash mop heads (the ones used to mop the toliets). Site flood lit and road lighting can be an issue if a good nights sleep is wanted. Steps to beach washed away. Shaving sockets dont work.

This review is for Rosemarkie

The great attraction here is the regular appearance of dolphins close to the shore at nearby Chanonry Point within easy walking distance. The Fairy Glen provides another fascinating walk of an entirely different character whie a trip to the town of Cromarty is well worth while. Again Inverness & Loch Ness are not all that far away. As I have said my only gripe is the absence of a service point for motorhomes. It is a pity the opportunity was not taken to install one when the contractors were engaged in putting in the additional electric points before the site reopened. To do so now will no doubt involve extra costs but I trust it can be done before my visit next year.

This review is for Rosemarkie

This was our first visit to the Club site at Rosemarkie and we were made most welcome on arrival by the management team, Andy, April, Elizabeth and Duncan. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they always gave people their time willingly. We were shown to our pitch and assisted by Duncan who explained the site facilities. Our beach side pitch was perfect, with great views and ideal for sitting back and soaking up the atmosphere. Toilet facilities were excellent, plenty hot water and were spotlessly clean, with perfect water and waste disposal points. Cut grass on site was immaculate. Great sea front walks and also handy (and very clean) site dog walk. Great food at next door Fortrose & Rosemarkie Golf Club - worth pre booking. We are going back in October and will definitely be back in 2016. Thank you all for a nice stay.
