Hogmanay Stay

The Crofter's Snug
A bit of a late decision Hogmanay stay for 5 nights, taking a punt on the weather being this side of acceptable! Booking on the website very straightforward and a very quick thankyou message came through from Karina for the booking. Lots of information both messaged and on the website, both about the site and about the area. As other reviews have said, the site is excellent. Aspects such as the water taps having covers to help prevent freezing, the recycling is very easy, the wi-fi was the best I've ever used on a site, all makes things that bit easier. Facilities all as described, well kept, clean and tidy. Remember your blocks, they will be needed, but with the hard standing no problem in using them. With the electric being on a meter I like paying for what's used, much fairer, especially in winter! The site is easy to find with good signposting. The views are great over to Orkney; we even got an aurora, albeit a minor one, and were messaged about it from Karina/Jo. Both were very friendly and helpful, and forgiving of my rubbish manoeuvring when parking to face into the wind, apologies again! Will definitely use the site again if and when we're up that way. Thankyou to both.

Wonderful

The Crofter's Snug
This site was fantastic.The pitches were very spacious with electricity, water and waste , and with amazing views of the sea and surrounding landscape. The hosts were so welcoming in fact Jo made us smile every time we saw her happily peddling up and down, the lane. The area it’s self had loads to offer from long sandy beaches, to historical sites. We also had some lovely walks directly of the site. Wick offered, a shopping outlet , with a b and m , Tesco’s , pets at home. The added bonus for anyone with dogs , was the enclosed dog field. Overall we stayed 7 days and I could have stayed longer.

Beautiful site.

The Crofter's Snug
Crofters snug is a well laid out site with stunning views. Fully serviced pitches and and a really great informative website giving ideas of things to do in the local area and places to eat. We did the day trip to Orkney from John o Groats and think it is a great way to sample what it has to offer in a day. The walk to Castle Mey and the castle itself were great. Jo and Karina were lovely hosts very friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay again. 😊 Janette and Ron Pell

Got to be our number one site in scotland

The Crofter's Snug
the view from the pitch is breath taking looking out to Orkney islands and with binoculars you can just see the top of the old man of hoy. we were welcomed to the pitch within minutes of arrival even helped setting up. we walked to the castle of mey gardens and to the cliffs overlooking the men of Mey and Swona (not sure of spelling) uninhibited island except for sheep!. a wonderful stay. we will be back.
