Burghead Thistle bought the ground off the Forestry Commission a couple of years ago after leasing it for many years. They now have floodlights/training lights and the wooden enclosure is a bit less ramshackle (still no seats, although there are a few community hall style stacking plastic chairs kicking around!). There is a new metal boundary wall and the pitch now has a surrounding wooden fence complete with advertising boards. There is no social club, but pies and bovril etc are sold from the pavilion at half time.
