Absolutely Fabulous

The Crofter's Snug
What a beautiful site. We were warmly welcomed by Jo on our arrival. We pitched facing the sea (you need ramps if you are in a van). The pitch was fully serviced with electricity, water and grey waste only feet away. The site is within easy reach of John O' Groats and Dunnet Head. We walked down to the beach which takes about 20mins. There we saw seals sunbathing and also cormorants and gannets diving for fish. Quite spectacular. Also nearby is East May Castle. We stayed two nights here and loved it. The views over to Orkney are beautiful. We will definitely stay here again on our next Highland trip.

Super wee site

The Crofter's Snug
Views, peace, friendly welcome, well tended. This is a wonderful CL. If you are attracted to the hectic bustle of the roads of the NC500, then this is not for you. Tranquil environment, dark night skies, walks directly from your pitch and lots to visit in the area. We spent 6 nights here in August 2021 and just loved it . Well done, Jo & Karine.

Wonderful welcme

The Crofter's Snug
Jo met us shortly after arrival and really informative. Site recently bought by Jo and Karina and it is clear they want to make it a super little site. Views over the Pentland Firth to Orkney are magnificent . With a very large twin axle caravan the pitches are extremely sloping and we needed blocks under the front steadies at full stretch with the van rear touching the ground. Long walk uphill to empty toilet but a sack barrow provided to assist….hopefully one will be put on the site but Jo and Karina have only just started on the site(moved in Nov 20 and only operable for 17 weeks). Walks from site….first 400 metres or so on rarely used road in either direction. Wish Jo and Karina in developing the site with success.

Fantastic CL

The Crofter's Snug
We are just back from a 6 night stay in this lovely CL. What a stunning and peaceful location!!! The site was easy to find and access - OK, the last mile was on a single track road but I don't think more that 1 car an hour used this!! Grass areas were all immaculately mow and the hardstanding pitched were well maintained - the blurb on the web site states leveling block may be require but they weren't far from level and we managed fine with just winding the jockey wheel up a bit. You will need a motor mover it you want to turn the 'van to take advantage of the stunning views over the Pentland Firth to Orkney. Jo and Karina were perfect hosts with Jo welcoming us and explaining all about the site and the local area. The site is only 5 mins from teh Gills Bay ferry to Orkney, which is well worth a day trip, and about 15 minutes from Thurso for the shopping essentials. Lots of walking available, its only about a 10 minute coastal walk to the back drive to the Castle of Mey. Normally you can walk through the gardens but Royalty was in residence and the entrance was guarded when we were there. There are a couple of rocky sea front within walking distance and a lovely beach 10 minutes drive away

Just Wonderful

The Crofter's Snug
We had a 3 night stay at this site .It is just lovely,the views are breath taking the wildlife amazing. We walked to the castle of May ( book in advance) along the shoreline watching seals bobbing in the waves. The castle is really interesting ( good coffee after maybe a mile walk from the campsite). Jo and Karina are very welcoming and attentive hosts, suggesting different walks etc. I recommend you visit their website which has loads of information and better contact and direction information than the club site. I think this has been the best CL I have visited.
