Why stay here ...

Sunnybrae is a recently re-opened half acre site situated just outside the pretty village of Findochty, commanding spectacular panoramic views over the Moray Firth and beyond (on a good day!) The site itself has 5 pitches (4 of which are hardstanding) all with new 16amp electric hookups. Drinking water tap and chemical waste disposal with rinsing tap are also provided for visitors. The site itself has a very gentle slope but the pitches are all reasonably flat.

Findochty is a small picturesque village with a scenic harbour mainly used for pleasure craft. It has a well stocked general store (0.5 mile) and a pub "The Admirals" (0.75 mile)which also provides takeaway meals as well as highly recommended lunchtime and evening meals.

The Moray coast has much to offer for a wide range of interests. Wildlife is particularly abundant with pine martens, kestrels, pheasants, roe deer and many other interesting animals and birds having been spotted from the CL site. Bottlenose dolphins are a major attraction on the Moray Firth and dolphin spotting expeditions on the "Gemini Explorer" can be taken from nearby Buckie (2 miles). For those a little less adventurous a good pair of binoculars is all that's required to catch sight of them from the comfort of your caravan. Other attractions include Strathlene Golf Club (1.25 miles), Findochty Beach (1 mile), stunning coastal walks and drives are popular in all weathers.

Many distilleries are based in the surrounding area and the world famous "Malt Whisky Trail" is always worth exploring. The Highland Games (Fochabers 9 miles) in late Spring is also a great experience and for those with an interest in the past,the area has plenty of historic castles and grand houses to seek out. For the younger visitor there is a range of activities to entertain. Go kart racing, ten pin bowling and pony trekking to name but a few.

Stargazing on a clear night is a sight to behold and The Northern Lights can sometimes make a rare incredible display.

Visitors to Sunnybrae will be guaranteed a warm welcome on arrival and we will endeavour to be of assistance throughout your stay if and when required.

Mike and Brenda look forward to seeing you.

Lovely little CL

Lovely little site, only a short walk from the village. Owners very friendly and helpful. Pitches are okay, compared with other places maybe a bit small. Would come back

Getting us on the road.

Sunnybrae
Lovely site and lovely owner ( we only met Mike). Everything well explained on arrival and logically arranged close to all pitches. Information room with leaflets and a small library Internet was the best I have ever encountered whilst on a site. On day of our depart a Sunday (after 4 nights) we found that our vehicle battery had died. Mike helped us get the van started with a lithium battery device and also got a traditional charger out to see how long would be needed to charge the battery. He also offered us an extra night if we wished. We decided to move on to our next site (25 miles) and had the RAC out on the following day to exchange the battery which was dead after sitting overnight. Will be on our list when we return to the area

A lovely little site with lovely owners

Sunnybrae
A small cl about 1/2 mile inland from Findochty with Buckie about 3 mile west and Cullen 4 mile east. You’ve got views over the Moray Firth to the coastline going up to John O’Groats. Pitches are uneven so levelling blocks required, the owner also provides wood to help facilitate this process. Really pleasant owners and the price is only £12 per night for electric. There’s a chemical disposal point, water tap and information hut, just don’t expect manicured lawns and a perfect pitch. You do get acceptable and free wifi which adds to the good value overall. There’s an off road path and cycle route west to Buckie and a coastal path and cycle route east to Cullen but it’s rough in the early stages in this direction.

One of the best!

A lovely CL, well spaced pitches with views out to sea. A short walk to Findochty or a little further along coastal path to Portknockie. Very quiet & relaxing. Cracking fish & chip shop in Portknockie. Wonderful fresh fish from Eat Mair Fish in Buckie. Very friendly owner.
