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. 🙂

Hidden gem

Arrived on site and within minutes Steve came to welcome us, and provided an immense amount of information about wildlife etc in the area. Site immaculately kept, grass worthy of Wimbledon, each pitch has access to water, drainage and electric hook up. Our only two issues were not being able to get our motorhome level, even with ramps, and the wind/rain (nothing anyone could do about that!). Other than that, it's a beauty of a site and would recommend to anyone. You need transport, as it's off the beaten track so no buses. Glamping pods and shepherds hut looked amazing too. Lovely site, lovely owners.

Wonderful cl

Returned home after a three weeks' tour of Scotland. This site was the pinnacle of our trip. The best ever views from any site that we have stayed at... And we've been caravanning since 1982! We saw dolphins swimming past us thanks to the owner Steve pointing them out. Steve and Kirsty were very welcoming and made sure we were okay. Clean and very tidy pitches too. One bit of constructive criticism would be that the chemical point could be nearer as it's a fair way up the drive, although a helpful cart trolley is provided. We took a day trip to Orkney which was amazing. Fantastic walking country with spectacular views. What a place. Thanks Steve and Kirsty.
