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.

Lovely stay

The Crofter's Snug
We stayed 3 nights on this excellent site in June. We were welcomed on arrival by the friendly owner who had come down from the house to offer assistance to another new arrival having problems with their caravan. All the pitches have lovely views across the Pentland Firth to the Orkneys and electric hook up, water and individual waste drain. Everything was clean and tidy around the site and the signage from the road to it is good. A real bonus is the Crofters Snug website which offers comprehensive information about the local area and activities, plus links to other relevant, interesting websites and Aps. Accessing this was simple as the WiFi was great! The Castle of Mey is very close and worth a visit. Dunnets Head offered the opportunity to watch the Puffins in a fabulous setting and orcas were seen off Duncansby Head, though sadly not by us, although we thoroughly enjoyed the bracing walk and stunning views of the stacks. Another plus to this CL is the excellent customer service. Booking was efficient and communication prompt. We were welcomed on to the site and the owner was helpful. She also popped by as we were leaving , a nice touch, but was otherwise unobtrusive but available if needed. We wished we had stayed longer!

A lovely site with beautiful views and helpful, welcoming hosts

The Crofter's Snug
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.
