Stunning CL

The Crofter's Snug
We enjoyed 6 nights on this site in early July 2022. Jo could not have made us feel more welcome. The site is immaculate and the views are stunning. The Castle of Mey is just 20 minutes walk or a few minutes drive away and a must to visit. Being just 2 miles from the ferry to Orkney gave us a chance to enjoy a wonderful day trip there. Thurso has all the amenities you need and to see the puffins flying from Dunnet Head was tremendous. We have a twin axle caravan and access was straight forward. Cannot rate this site highly enough. Thank you Jo and Karina.

Amazing CL

The Crofter's Snug
We have just returned from a four night stay at this fantastic well laid out fully serviced CL. The views over the Pentland Firth to Orkney are out of this world. Fortunately we were lucky to have some beautiful sunsets during our stay. Jo and Karina were very welcoming and knowledgeable of the surrounding area. The biggest problem was our short stay! Will we be back......Definitely,

Should I recommend this site? It’s a conundrum because it’s beautiful but I want to be able to get on to it in future so shhhhh… it’s our secret. The owners couldn’t be more welcoming and are great fun. The views are stunning. It’s close to the NC500, the Pentland Ferry dock for Orkney, the Castle of Mey, John o’Groats and Dunnet Head. It’s a pleasant stroll to the secluded sand and rock beach. The sound of curlews, skylarks and oyster catchers enhanced our experience. It’s dog friendly with an enclosed secure dog field to let your pooch run off lead. The pitches are well laid out with ehu and water points. So a definite recommendation as long as you don’t take ‘our’ pitch when we want it.

Awesome Site!

The Crofter's Snug
Just left Crofter’s Snug today after a 3 night stay. It was difficult to drive away :( We had a fantastic welcome from the owners Jo and Karina, they couldn’t have been more helpful. The views across to the Orkney Islands are breathtaking. Certainly a unique location for a CL. It’s now on our favourite CL list. The site is having a little makeover and is looking good, it can only improve. We travelled in from the west (Thurso/Castetown) and used directions on their website satnav which proved really useful although the written website directions are very clear. All the information on the website is worth reading. We managed to cycle to both Dunnet Head and Castle of Mey with only a very short distance on the quiet road. A glorious CL.

Pitch perfect

The Crofter's Snug
We booked online which worked brilliantly. Everything confirmed in emails. The day before we arrived, a text message arrived with lots of information we needed to know. The in person greeting was lovely, Jo and Karina couldn’t have been more helpful and enthusiastic. The pitches are being improved this year and they were reseeding the grass when we came for our one night. I wish it was longer here as this area has much to explore and the view from the site is just unbelievable. We followed other’s advice and arrived from the east and had no problems accessing the site. If you want a quiet escape you won’t be disappointed here, it really is breath taking.
