General

  • Seaside holiday park in Lossiemouth on the Moray Firth coastline
  • Indoor swimming pool and live entertainment included in the rate
  • First-class facilities including fitness centre, sauna and restaurant

Silver Sands Holiday Park on Scotland's Moray Firth coastline is named after the sparkling stretch of beach that runs alongside it, but you'll reckon what's on site is pretty sparkling too: revamped facilities including an indoor swimming pool (free), a sauna and a fitness suite should have you feeling pretty bright...

Silver Sands is at Lossiemouth on the north-eastern Scottish coastline, minutes from the very fine Moray Golf Club and a short drive from Inverness. As well as the pool, fitness suite and sauna, this well-maintained park has a restaurant and bar, an adventure play area for the kids, and live evening entertainment – and like the pool, facilities are free.

You'll likely spend quite a bit of time off base too: Silver Sands has direct access to the three sandy miles of West Beach, brimming with rock pools, caves and sand dunes to explore.

Good pitches but disappointed how they work the pitches 07/12/2019

  • Electric gravel pitch

  • Liked: 

    Pitch was good facilities were clean and tidy.

    Disliked: 

    As we arrived we were told to go to field G and park anywhere. But that meant when we left to go out on the motorhome someone could take your pitch. I found this disorganised and unfair. Disappointed

Could not fault the site and the staff. Beach access would be good. 07/11/2019

  • Liked: 

    The site is easy to get around and facilities spotless. Great entertainment for kids and adults.

    The shop was well stocked with basic essentials and many other items.

    Our pitch had water on tap which was handy.

    We had a great view of the lighthouse which lights up at night with various colors.

    Lovely beach nearby.

    Disliked: 

    There was plenty of access to the sandy beach but, as I am disabled and need a scooter to get around, getting to the beach was impossible as my scooter got stuck in the sandy paths.

    I have found this problem with every site I have been on that has beach access.
    There were a good number of disabled people on the site who felt the same.

    If the site owners could make a path suitable for wheelchairs, and scooters, the holiday would be so much more enjoyable was those who cannot walk far.
    Surely it would not cost much to put down 1 wooden path to enable us to get to the beach.

Local attractions

The harbour and fishing town of Lossiemouth is a few miles from Silver Sands Holiday Park and has a good range of shops and restaurants as well as a fisheries museum, small theatre/gig venue and the 18 holes of Moray Golf Club, regarded by those in the know as one of Scotland's finest courses.

If you want to dig into Scotland's rich history, Balvenie Castle, one of the oldest stone castles in Scotland, is a short drive away, as is Inverness Castle, in the centre of the town overlooking the River Ness. Hang around in town after a trip to the castle for more historic buildings like Inverness Cathedral and the Old High Church.

It's also not far to the shops, restaurants, museums, galleries and history of Aberdeen: recommended are the Aberdeen Art Gallery, Aberdeen Maritime Museum, live music in Belmont Street, Provost Ross' House and, if you're around in summer, dropping into some shows at the Aberdeen International Youth Festival.

Must see

  • Glenfiddich Distillery (32.3 kilometres)
  • The Glenlivet Distillery Visitor Centre (42.1 kilometres)
