What's The Ground Like?

Although originally opened in 1929, the ground has a newish feel about it, as significant investment has been put into it in recent years. The West Stand at one side of the pitch, is an attractive looking all seated, covered stand, with a row of executive boxes running across the back. Part of this stand is given to away supporters. This stand was originally opened in 1991, but was extended in 2000, so that the stand now runs for the whole length of the pitch. Opposite is the East Stand, a small, covered, all seated stand, which was built in 1995. Both ends are similar sized terraces. The home end, the South Terrace (known locally as the Jail End) is covered, whilst the away end, the North Terrace is uncovered.

What Is It Like For Visiting Supporters?
Away fans are primarily housed in the North Terrace at one end of the ground. This area is uncovered, so be prepared to get wet. A better bet may be to head for one of the seats allocated to away supporters in the West Stand, at one side of the pitch, as these are covered. Please note though that entrance to the ground is by ticket only, no cash is accepted at the turnstiles. You will need to buy your ticket from the ticket office, which is the dark red portacabin which is situated by the car park across the road from the West Stand.

Where To Drink?
The ground is five minutes walk away from the town centre, where there are plenty of bars to choose from. Scott Armstrong recommends; 'The Mallard is a good friendly pub with excellent bar food. It is located by the railway station and only 300 yards from Victoria Park'.

How To Get There By Car & Where To Park

Take the A835 into Dingwall. On approaching the centre, turn right into Park Street and then right onto the High Street. Continue down the High Street and straight on into Ferry Road. The ground is down on the right. If you get lost, follow signs for the railway station, as the ground is right by it. There is a car park at the ground, which costs 2.

Hotel Accommodation
If you require hotel accommodation in the area then first try a hotel booking service provided by Football Hotels who are powered by Activehotels, who specialise in locating accommodation near or within a short travelling distance of the football ground. They also have the added advantage over some other hotel booking services that you pay on departure. Yes this site will earn a small commission if you book through them, but it will go to help with the running costs of keeping the Guide going. To access their Dumfries page click here.
