Ease of arrival/welcome

Difficult to rate

We checked into the office on arrival amd were directed to park under trees alongside an estate road used by fishermen, estate workers and dog walkers but quiet and peaceful in the evening and at night. The four other outfits there were well spaced out. No electric hookup but non expected but waste, disposal and water all situated in the office area rather than near the site. The site managers offered no advice or information about the estate despite the references on the site page. There is good walking in the estate woods but sadly given the size of the area there is no designated area for dogs to run off lead.

Ease of arrival/welcome

The most basic site, expensive for what is provided

The best thing about the site are the views of fields and the many walks without driving away. The facilities are basic and inconveniently located (if you can find them) and the estate workers have better things to do than be bothered with dealing with campers. The charge of £10 per night is not merited. I have paid £11-£15 per night for excellent facilities including hookup and warm welcome on this tour, this CL was the worst value.

Ease of arrival/welcome

Dissappointing - Lack of information on arrival, Waste disposal hard to find, Lack of interest when problems raised. We would not go back although che

We were on a long road tour of Scotland and chose this site near Inverness because it sounded great and our expectations were high. When we arrived Sat Nav brought us down the most direct track to the site but as there were no visible signs until you were well committed down a narrow track we had to ring the office for directions. he sight is long and thin with a track runing it's length. This track is quite well used by fishermen etc. The water tap is at one end of the site, so could be a long way if you are pitched at the far end. We could not find any foule waste disposal - we eventually tracking it down at the office several hundred yards away - too far to carry/roll a toilet waste container. As there was nowhere to dispose of grey water we had no alternative but to use the ditch adjacent - Here we found some inconsiderate person had emptied thier toilet and dumped a load of cornflakes. I totally do not condone this lazyness but was very dissappointed at the reaction of the office. I would expect them to come and sort this sort of problem - they seemed uninterested if annoyed that it had happened. None of the facilities mentioned in the listing above were mentioned when we arrived. They may not have been available because of Covid but it would have been nice to have been told. The impression was that the CL was an inconvenience and survived on the back of it's impressive name! Cheap but no so cheerfull.

Basic but splendid

Excellent "away-from-it-all " stop-over on our tour of northern Scotland. Certainly value for money. Adjacent to a beautiful old garden and some fascinating walks of the old Estate and surrounding countryside.

Unusual

No one around when we arrived or left. No instructions as to where or who to pay. We found an Estate Office and dropped money through the letter box and hope it got to correct person. Was very difficult to find the waste disposal point as no information anywhere. Quite liked the CL but the other reviewers are right there is a bit of traffic up and down the track as the fishermen go down to fish. We would use it again but would know what to expect. It was EXCELLENT value for the money!!
