COVID-19 CORONAVIRUS UPDATED 22/03/20
The decision to close, is to protect the safety of our local community. The ever hospitable and welcoming Highlands has put out a plea urging everyone to take responsibility and cut out all non-essential travel to prevent further spread of the virus. Resources are already stretched and extra visitors will require fuel and provisions that our fragile communities with small grocery stores and fewer hospitals are unable to provide.
We appreciate that there will be an enormous amount of disappointed visitors but this is the right action to take. We hope you all stay healthy and look after yourselves. We look forward to welcoming you in the not too distant future. We will consistently review the situation and, reopen as soon as possible. Please follow our Facebook page for up to date information.
-Best wishes, Mike and Rachel

Come and stay in the peace and tranquility of Fortrose Bay Campsite,
one of the best places to view dolphins, in their natural habitat, in Scotland...
Situated on the pebble beach overlooking the spectacular view over the Moray Firth, It's the perfect place to relax and unwind.
Enjoy a beach campfire and BBQ whilst watching the sun set over the distant mountains.
Fortrose is an historic seaside village, only a short walk from the campsite, with supermarket, butcher, baker, café, and restaurants. It lies 15miles NE of Inverness and is a great base to explore the rest of the Highlands. The Black Isle benefits from its own micro climate, often having better weather than other parts of Scotland. It is virtually midge free !! which makes it a great place to camp.
The Black Isle is actually a peninsula, rather than an island, running from Beauly to Cromarty at the tip. It is flanked by the Moray and Cromarty firths. It isn't certain where it gets its name from, some say its because the soil is so dark, others because the snow rarely settles on the Isle. Chanonry point is a large natural sand bar and lies between Fortrose and Rosemarkie village. It has a very scenic golf course and lighthouse and is famous for being the best place to spot the UK's most northern colony of bottlenose dolphins.
