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.

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.

LOVELY WELCOMING CALM SITE WITH LOVELY VIEWS FROM ALL PITCHES

Found this lovely little CL, super owners, really friendly and very helpful and obliging, could not do more to assist. Lovely little area, entrance tight but easily doable. There were building works when we were there, but did not bother us as they finished early in the day and did not start too early either. Lovely sea views, lovely little garden type setting really........pitches swell marked out. Facilities CHEMICAL WASTE, FRESH WATER, GREY WATER WASTE and ELECTRIC HOOK UP all for a modest amount. FAAABULOUS We loved with our DOG. Will definitely be back, we were then three weeks ago ANDREW VEE AND SKYE

Fantastic site

Just back from our second very peaceful visit to this brilliant site. Pitches are well spaced and the view is fantastic, in particular the sunsets. There is a little road noise from the small road alongside but not enough to annoy. Upon booking, we were advised that building work was ongoing across the road Mon to Fri but this did not affect us. We will most certainly be back. For the record, the earlier negative review sounds as if they were attempting to set up on a parking space not one of the 5 numbered pitches.

Very small CL not appropriate for 5 caravans

Arrived midday today to find a narrow entrance and already had 4 caravans squashed in its half an acre. We were left with a very rough ground space which hadn’t even had its grass cut which was squashed in the far left corner next to the house. The biggest issue was it was supposed to be quite location as stated on its web site yet next door is a very active and noisy building site which another caravaner told us it went on until 7 pm. To summarise this Cl is just too small for 5 vans. Went up the coast near Elgin to another CL called Lea Rig the difference was we had arrived at Rivendell having escaped Mordor.
