    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 Chanonry 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.

Very busy site at the time of our first enquiry but managed to get the following night.

This review is for Rosemarkie

Very busy site at the time of our first enquiry but managed to get the following night. Understandable as the location is superb but the club is taking advantage of that. To echo a lot of previous comments we can only state that the two shower blocks are woefully inadequate & desperately in need of an upgrade. The number of shower cubicles is not enough although they are kept clean. So what about the disappointing attitude? When we called in to enquire the lady couldn't have been more helpful but the following day was completely different..it was just as if they were reading from the training manual & as members of over 11 years we do not need to be addressed like that. When you are booked in with an Age Concession card & membership for both has been acknowledged, it is surely not necessary to insist on showing both cards on arrival to check that they are both marked with Age Concession in case they have to send them off for amending. Please respect your members and their experience & do not preach to us. We won't let this experience sour our membership but there should be a lesson to be learned here. On a positive note the Black Isle is lovely, Cromarty is well worth a visit as is Avoch & it's history information boards. A pleasant enough overnighter on our wonderful holiday up north.

This review is for Rosemarkie

We managed to get this site last minute and sadly due to our itinerary we could only stay one night. The site has fantastic beach frontage with a lovely clean dog friendly beach within easy access.The wardens were so helpful despite our turning up near to their closing time, we were showed to our pitch and the facilities were pointed out well. You need to put a code in the door to access the facilities but this is understandable as a quiet road runs through the site. The road was no issue and the facilities lovely and clean. Channonry Point is very close for Dolphin watching, we were not lucky but we did see seals which was lovely. We wold love to come back here when we are up here again.

Beautiful setting beside the bay...dolphins an added bonus to beach walks.

This review is for Rosemarkie

Beautiful setting beside the bay...dolphins an added bonus to beach walks. Other walks include Fairyglen, Swallow Hill or the old railway line to Avoch(Och). Inverness nearby for shopping therapy... as well as numerous other places of interest. But I don't want anyone else to know about Rosemarkie or too many visitors might just spoil the peaceful atmosphere!!

What a wonderful location right on the beach.

This review is for Rosemarkie

What a wonderful location right on the beach. First stop of our Route 500 Scotland tour, absolutely loved The Black Isle. Dolphin watching, beach walking, the Fairy Falls were idyllic and all walkable from the campsite. Cromarty is a lovely historic town and the coast road along the Cromarty Firth is wonderful. Really friendly, helpful and professional wardens. Arriving to happy smiling people is a wonderful way to start any stay on a campsite. To make this site perfect the facilities do need updating, having said that they were spotlessly clean. We would highly recommend anyone touring Scotland to make the Black Isle and Rosemarkie site a stop off point.
