Perfect!

Stayed here 5 nights at the end of August 2019. We were met on arrival by Steve who was very friendly and helpful. He showed us to our pitch. All pitches are hardstanding with waste, water and electric to each pitch. The pitches are quite level and the views over to the Orkneys are fabulous. The grass areas are immaculate. Access to the site is easy and the site directions excellent. It's well off the main road so you only get local traffic passing the site so it's quiet and peaceful. Most noise came from the sheep in the field opposite the site. There's plenty to see and do around the site. A trip to Orkney is a must and well worth the money. These go from John O'Groats which is about 6 miles away. The Castle of Mey is within walking distance and again is worth a visit. There are supermarkets in Thurso (12-13 miles away) . Plenty of wildlife was on show close by the site, birds, seals on the beach nearby. Steve & Kirsty work very hard to keep the site well presented and deserve every success.

Amazing Views

Had a warm friendly welcome from the owner Steve and was given our pitch number as the site was full when we stayed. All pitches are hard standing with EHU, waste & water.This site is perfect if you are planning a trip to Orkney like us we took the ferry from Gills Bay which is only 7 mins away. The Castle of Mey is literally next door which is well worth the visit. We would definetly recommend this site for peace and quiet & the amazing views across the Pentland Firth.

Fantastic site with superb views

We stayed here late April for a few days. The site was everything you could wish for with views of the Orkneys and beautiful sunsets seen from your window. Lovely walks and sea birds with spectacular cliff scenery.

A Little Piece of Heaven.

We stayed here for four days at the end of March 2019 and enjoyed every form of weather whilst looking out at great surrounding views and being welcomed and looked after by two of the most delightful hosts you could wish to meet. This is definitely the sort of site that we'd like to return to again and again and we intend to do so despite the distance involved to get there from our Worcestershire home. Just a joy to be there and we can't thank Kirsty and Stephen enough for there assistance throughout our visit. Can't wait to get back there.
