    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.

A warm welcome awaits you at Rosemarkie and if you are a golfer it will be a dream.

This review is for Rosemarkie

A warm welcome awaits you at Rosemarkie and if you are a golfer it will be a dream. The proximity of the gently rolling waves lends an unsurpassed flavour to this splendid site. Casually watching dolphins passing by only yards away or out on the headland chasing fish or riding the bow waves of marine vessels is something else - get the best camera you can afford and get some superb shots! If the recently-closed public house was still open, this would have been probably our best-ever site, but that's being greedy wanting everything! Dunnet Head, or John O'Groats if you prefer, is attainable in a day as are many attractions on the most northerly section of the Highlands. There is a good bus service into Inverness if, like us, you prefer to leave the motorhome on-site. The bus is best caught from Fortrose as a number of services terminate there, not reaching Rosemarkie and it isn't too far to walk. If walking, observing nature or merely relaxing beside the gently breaking waves is your idea of a good break, then this site is for you!

This review is for Rosemarkie

Whilst out exploring, I had a fall and dislocated my finger. On arrival back at the site, Wardens Andy and April couldn't be more helpful. Andy took me to the A&E at Raigmore, Inverness and April kept my wife up to date with the treatment. We read these stories in the magazine about the helpful Wardens and I can assure you, its true! We would like to thank both Andy and April for all their help and advice. Would certainly go back to Rosemarkie to finish exploring this area. However, will try acting my age and not my shoe size when jumping across slippery rocks!!! Cheers, Bill & Mary McCallum

This review is for Rosemarkie

Very warm welcome when we arrived and we were showed to pitch right on seafront with amazing views of Moray Firth. The site had only just opened for the season and new additional EHUs had been added along the sea front. It was Easter so site was quite busy but fairly relaxed. The facilites are a little limited for the size of the site - for men two urinals, two cubicles and two showers and about the same for ladies for about 40 pitches (the other part of the campsite with its own toilet block was not in use) but there was never really a queue. Local facilites are excellent. There is a beach front cafe about 15 minutes stroll along the seashore into Rosemarie. In the evening there is a bistro about 10 minutes stroll, There is also a small small shop in the village. Campsite users are also welcome to use the restaurant facilites in the golf club (small temporary membership charge) next to the site where we were made very welcome, and had a very nice meal at a reasonable price. There is also a larger Co-op plus butchers, bakers etc in Fortose which is about 20 minutes walk mostly on grassy footpaths. This is a great site for all ages, good sandy beach, dolphin spotting at Chanory Point nearby, lovely walks. We wil be back.

The wardens went beyond the call of duty in clearing the debris from a storm, so quickly and without any complaint. Plenty to do. Visit the Fairy Glen it will take your breath away. Unfortunately we did not see the dolphins but others did.
