Why stay here ...

The Crofter's Snug CL is located in the far north of Scotland and situated on the coast between Thurso (14 miles) and John O’Groats (6 miles).

With panoramic coastline vistas featuring Dunnet Head, Orkney and Stroma the view will have you captivated whatever the weather.

The site has 5 x fully serviced hard standing pitches, each with its own 16 amp electric hook up, mains water, and grey disposal points. A chemical waste disposal point is nearby.

The large 10x10m pitches are part sloping; 3 of which are half grass and hard standing to enable awnings etc.

The area is a great location to visit Orkney with the car and passenger ferry within 2 miles. The Castle Of Mey is within walking distance with fishing, hotels, shop, garage, Calor Gas all available within 10 miles.

Dogs are welcome but must be kept on leads due to the agricultural environment.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

A lovely site with beautiful views and helpful, welcoming hosts

We had a lovely short break here just before Christmas and were met on arrival by the very helpful and friendly hosts Karina and Jo. The site is very clean and well cared for and the location is quiet and peaceful, and is probably the most northerly on the mainland. There are wonderful views of Dunnet Head, The Orkneys and Stroma, especially when the sun shines and lights them up. Thank you Karina and Jo.

Simply the best!

We have stayed at this CL every year since it opened, and it is our favourite CL on the whole network (but ssshh... don’t tell everybody 😂 ). Stunning views, well-managed and led, and two hosts who cannot do enough for you, as well as being two of the nicest people you could wish to meet. We do a 1000 mile round trip to this site at least once a year and it is worth every mile on the road! They had it superbly set up this year to respond to COvID and ensured a very high cleaning standard was kept. The site is impeccable and they work so hard to maintain high standards. Keep up the great work Kirsty and Steve. Can’t wait for our next return visit. Andrew and Sue.

My favourite site on our trip

This was a lovely site, immaculate and well organised used with beautiful views and great walks. Easy access to John o Groats, Dunnet Head and Duncansby Head. The owner was very friendly and helpful and pointed us in the direction of the local butchers for gas as well as great meat. We would happily return when we visit the Highlands again.

Lovely spot, angry hosts.

Had a tel call a few days before we were due to arrive, to say they had double booked but could put us on a pitch at end. This turned out to be a car park space. I expressed disapointment when i saw it, but the owners then got angry and very abusive, despite my repeated requests for them to calm down, at one point we were told to go! Stayed just the night, and not the 3 booked, appreciate the owners may be stressed due to the virus, but abusing the guests is totally unacceptable, especially as the lady went off and told the people in the next van that we had been difficult and were causing her big problems.

Perfect CL

We stayed here in our caravan in July 2020, just after lockdown restrictions were lifted. This CL is immaculately kept and is a perfect CL for anyone who appreciates great views and peace and quiet. Good hard standing pitches, each with its own EHU, tap and drain, all with amazing views across the Pentland Firth to Orkney. The site is on a very quiet rural road with only the occasional car or tractor. If you have a caravan a motor mover is really useful to get the nose into the pitch. The pitches are a bit slopy but not so much that we couldn’t get level. Secluded beaches and coves all within 10 minutes walk. We’d return in a flash. 🙂
