"Spot dolphins on Scotland's sunshine coast from this campsite."
As it is part of a beautiful Highland forest, our campsite at Nairn is level and sheltered and near the town's sandy beach. The Moray Firth is frequented by dolphins, and you may be lucky enough to spot a red squirrel on site.

Called ahead to see if they could accommodate a motorhome for 1 night and was called back within 5 minutes with the answer Yes. The site felt very rural, with an excellent dog walk through the woods, yet still close to a supermarket for stocking up for the onward journey. Facilities were spotless if a little dated, showers powerful enough. Relaxed overnight stay for us.

This site is in a delightful location set on the edge of a wood with extensive walking directly into the wood. It's not a great distance to the beach and so both countryside and seaside can be enjoyed. We watched a red squirrel and rabbits play from our caravan window and saw deer while walking in the wood. The staff keep the site immaculately and their work ethic is second to none. We have nothing but praise for their friendliness and helpfulness. The facilities are not as modern as on some other sites but are maintained to a high standard.

Visited to find out about staying there. Was given such a warm friendly welcome we will definitely be staying there in the very near future.
DATE STAYED: April 2013
Stayed 3 nights here. Lovely tidy generous sites in amongst pine trees. There is a recreation room with table tennis and a telephone box on site - mobile signal iffy. Red squirrels are easily spotted as are the rabbits. Wardens were especially helpful and friendly. We visited Culloden and Fort George both within easy distance. At the fort we watched dolphins playing in the Moray Firth - a real delight. An enjoyable stay.

A very friendly site, very good wardens who took time to speak to people yet kept the place ship-shape. Warm toilets and shower facilities - a very good overall standard and would come back again. Wouldnt advise walking into Nairn as a very busy road but a short journey to Nairn and easy access to the Dolphin Coast!

We have just returned from a week at Delnies Wood, Nairn. We agree with others that the toilet block could do with upgrading - however it was always clean. We also think that the managers are listening to comments as after some very heavy rain they went round the site the next day adding gravel to areas that needed it. They also cut grass when ever able between rain days! Maintenance must be a nightmare for them with the weather we have had!
The dog walking is the best we have come across - acres of woodland accessible from the site. Dog bin available on site.
We were unable to use wifi from our pitch however we were advised to check the signal strength before buying a card - this was great advice.
The site is in a great location for visiting many of the visitor attractions in the area. We didn't manage to see dolphins (this time) :-( Maybe next time.
Thank you to staff for their efforts and helpful friendliness.

Cannot agree with some of the previous comments it is a caravan site and not 5 star hotel . Facilities good clean and warm. Staff helpful
just returned from a 5 night stay at Delnies Wood.
Met by a pleasant warden and shown to our pitch, it was water logged and very muddy.
The pitches are too close to each other, the facilities where clean however could be doing with an upgrade
It is a good base for travelling around next to Culloden, Fort George as well as the Black Isle to see the dolphins.
A variety of restaurants and take away in Nairn, as well as a large Tesco only a short drive away, would only return to Narin when it has had some upgrading, in particular the water logged paths and pitches.
SUITABLE FOR: Families
I agree fully with most of the previous reviews, however I am astounded that no-one has mentioned the unbelievably loud road noise from the very busy A96 Inverness to Nairn road which can be no more than a hundred metres from the site. If recommending to a friend I would recommend they get a pitch at the back of the site furthest away from the road.

Toilet block was adequate but could do with a revamp/replacement.Manual barrier was a bit of a pain as i was on my own when at the site.The barrier should be left open during the day as it serves NO PURPOSE if it's not locked or key/card controlled.
SUITABLE FOR: Active break,Peaceful break
Best in good weather, some pitches can get rather waterlogged! Easy access to bus service to Inverness & Aberdeeen. Good walking area.
A very peaceful site in wooded surroundings, with red squirrels and rabbits playing around the caravan. Site very clean and tidy. Amenities block may be a little old compared with others, but in good condition and cleaned to highest standard. Staff very helpful and friendly. Will certainly visit again.
Toilets badly need upgrading but are kept spotlessly clean. Wardens helpful and friendly.Bus stop right outside site so can leave car and take the public transport and see more of the scenery.Could do with gravel on pitches as they get very wet
SUITABLE FOR: Older couples
Very friendly and helpful management team and their deputies in particular are a credit to our club.
Sadly we feel that whoever gets to work on this site is being let down by the CCC because the tiolet and washing facilities are at best very tired and are now ready for a total replacement programme.
The site is a nice size and well located within a wooded area giving easy access to Inverness or Nairn.
Very friendly & helpful staff. Good dog walks from the site but you will need wellies when it rains as can get a bit muddy. Toilets and showers are spotless, and warm. Great area for touring/dolphin watching or just relaxing on site. Fellow members were very helpful as this was our first time away with a caravan. We will return.

Our experience of this site was very negative. The reception area smelt musty and our welcome was curt.
We were told the pitch we had to go on and we asked if there was a choice - the warden then said she would show us the pitches. We were unhappy with the pitch as because we had not booked an awning (not requested to) we were given a narrow pitch. The unit across the entry road was also very close. The site gave the whole impression of being uncared for and not somewhere to enjoy a holiday. We were also surprised at the way the warden directed us to pitch - we are also members of the Caravan club and have never had that experience at one of their sites. We would have been quite happy to be told to park and leave the appropriate space between units - but as the pitch is so narrow, the 6m rule would have been almost impossible.
This site needs a serious overhaul.
Very friendly site not far from one of the best beaches in Britain.red squirrels on site as well as other wildlife.When we arrived it was very wet and on telling the site staff that part of our pitch was very muddy within minutes they were there putting stones down to dry it up.As we have been going to this site for over 30 years(pre club days)we knew that with 2 dry days the site would dry out. The toilet facilities have remained in the same buildingfor all of the years we have been going and could do with updating.The facilities were spotless and the STAFF were really helpful during our stay and we would recommend this club site to anyone.

We received a very warm welcome after our long drive. The site is well sheltered and very nice. We could chose our own pitch as it was not busy in the tent section. The warden was a star and sorted out a problem with the booking I had made. I had booked EHU on the website, but it had not gone through as such. He even lent us an extra EHU extension lead so that it would reach our tent and did not charge for EHU!
We really enjoyed our week here despite not having the best of weather. The picthes coped well with the rain and the wind was never a problem because the site is sheltered by Delnies wood which has some great walks. There is also a great walk to the local beach on the Moray Firth which was fantastic but a little bracing given the time of year we went.
The faclities on the site were very good and clean but the toilet/shower block shut form 11am till 12:30pm for cleaning, with no alternatives available.
The A96 trunk road runs near the site and traffic noise might be a disturbance if you were tent camping, but we found that we it didn't really impact on our stay here and certainly did not disturbe our sleep.
There is a games room which has a pool table and table tennis.
The site charge 50p to freeze each ice block, which could work out quite expensive if you have a large cool box and go non EHU.
All in all we liked this site and would return. It is a great place to use as a base for touring/day tripping the highlands. The town of Nairn is only a couple of miles away which is handy for supermarkets & takeaways etc and the city of Inverness is about 16 miles.

Real friendly welcome, even due the reception was already closed. Good facilities to do the laundry.
We were well informed about the surroundings of Nairn and were to go too.

Made the mistake of visiting this site during the Scottish Open. I found it claustrophobically overcrowded and, after a lot of rain, very muddy. The toilets and showers do not seem adequate for the number of units and there was only one soap dispenser and one hand drier which did not work. On the plus side, with concession, this was an affordable site. There is good dog walking next to site but take your wellies. All in all, I would not use this site again
Visited on a quick stop over, our welcome was fabulous, we were offered a viarity of pitches and nothing was too much trouble. Site facilities are spotless and warm. I would presume because of the local proximity to Nairn the shop does not stock all you may require but I would have liked the "breakfast essentials". This did not spoil our stay. Site is ideally placed for Nairn and Inverness, we will reurn when the festivals are taking place.
