“Wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2014

This was our first caravan holiday park experience and i can't recommend it enough. We made use of the facilities (swimming pool, crazy golf, playground, restaurant) and also used it as a base to visit Inverness and Loch Ness. The park is kept very tidy and clean and the staff and visitors were all very friendly. We booked through the Sun so wasn't quite sure what to expect but have no regrets whatsoever. The caravan was a good size and we had booked for 2 adults and 2 children and received a 3 bedroom caravan. We will be visiting Lochloy again for sure!

I went here at the weekend with my son. The location is fantastic, right on the beach and one of the safest paces I have stayed. The staff were fantastic and they drove up and checked all was ok. I was upgraded to a fantastic caravan which was clean and lovely throughout (I booked through the sun). Totally recommend this place and have stayed at others before and we loved it here. The other holiday makers were nice (no pikeys!!). The pool is small and compared to some caravan parks there was not loads of facilities but this was nice, the entertainment was good. Would definately go back. Thank you Parkdean Lochloy

We used the caravan park as a base to explore the local area and was able to cover from Spey Bay/Elgin area to Loch Ness and areas in between quite comfortably. Also Nairn itself is well worth exploring and the site provide local walking leaflets in their welcome folder which is very helpful. We did several of the suggested local walks, along Culbin Sands ( an RSPB site) adjacent to the caravan park, the East Beach which is lovely and clean and would be wonderful for children. Also there is a lovely walk up the Nairn River itself with paths on either side. We were very inpressed by all the helpful local information boards en route explaining local features.
The caravan we had was really good and looked as if it had been recently refurbished. There was more storage space than we as an older couple could have needed, but it would be excellent for a family. There was a very large cooker and fridge freezer, and the caravan had high quality pans, crockery and cooking utensils, impessively so for a caravan. Amazingly everthing worked perfectly. The cleanliness of the caravan was excellent too. The only negative we had was that the caravan ( No 19) that we had was parked very close to other caravans and directly opposite end to end another caravan just over the roadway. Most of the other caravans had net curtains, but ours did not and at times we felt we were eating in a goldfish bowl, but this is the only negative we could find, so it did not spoil the holiday for us.
Highlight of the local area for us was a visit to Channory Point where we saw the Dolphins which was amazing. The best time to catch them is 1-1.5 hours before high tide. The Whale and Dolphin Centre at Spey Bay is well worth a visit too.

Fantastic site for families seeking a more chilled holiday. The site is quite small (maybe 300 vans?) so very quiet compared to some other places we've stayed. The big beautiful beach is accessible over dunes, people with pushchairs/wheelchairs will find the access easier near entrance of the park, near the harbour. We didn't use the pool so cannot comment, but the playground was great. We stayed in van 236 which was nearly new, well equipped and very clean.
The camp is next to a site of special scientific interest for bird life.
Nairn itself is a lovely small town, good selection of shops and a large CoOp.
We did have one negative, we had one meal in the on site restaurant, which wasn't great, and my meal arrived a good 15 minutes after my husbands. We were given the meal for free as an apology. Apart from this small negative, we had a fantastic time at this lovely site.

Excellent site, good location, friendly staff, good value for money, the parkdean troopers were brilliant with the kids, food was excellent and entertainment was good for the size of camp, my only complaint is the swimming pool times having 4 children to get ready we ended up with very little time in the pool but other than that it was overall an excellent holiday

just home after a wonderful week at Lochloy. From the moment we arrived until departure the staff were attentive and pleasant. Our caravan was spotless. Beach and town both close. Great wee pool with friendly attendant. 5 stars for everything. We'll be back for sure.
