This was a trip I recently made to the Dingwall C&CC Site, from 23rd to 26th Aug 21, which was nights 43 to 46 living in the caravan this year. It was a trip I had booked months ago taking advantage of a special offer for non-electric grass pitches. It worked out around £7 per night which I had pre paid back earlier in the year. A good choice as the solar panel was more than adequate for supplying the necessary power due to the excellent late summer weather.

Dingwall is a well kept site, adjacent to Ross County's Stadium.

It is also on the NC500 so can get very busy, especially this year.

I was pitched side ways on a grassy area, but I had to move the van a few times to make the best attempt to avoid the bare dirt where grass had been killed by folk with awning carpets. Never understand why folk use carpets in an awning, and why the site allow it. It's ugly and involves a lot of restoration work.

Nice location for walking around the town. It's a bit tired and suffers a bit from shockingly bad planning and pedestrianisation, but still good for a wander.

The Telford Canal, now disused and silted up which has a very nice circular walk.

Since I was last here, the condemned bridge has been replaced and the excellent walk re-opened.

Another fine walk to the stone maze near Strathpeffer.

Looking back down towards Castle Leod.

Walking to the View Rock above Contin.

Discovered a great coastal circular walk from the ruined church near Kiltearn.

Followed the coast, then inland around what I believe is the River Glass. Great spaniel country!

Another long walk I discovered on this trip was a 4 or 5 mile circular following field edges and forests through Brahan Estate starting and finishing in nearby Maryburgh.

Nearing the end, we followed the tractor lines back towards where we started.

Visited another excellent forest above Tain, the high point giving great views across the Cromarty and Dornoch Firths over towards Portmohomack.

This was a really good trip, made  better by the glorious weather and fantastic dog walks. A site I really do enjoy visiting.
